Default Correct CPU temperature speedfan or CPUID?

New computer build and I'm trying to monitor the CPU temperature.

I installed Speedfan first and it shows the CPU running between 44-54*c.
Then I installed CPUID and it shows 34-37*c and package temps 9* 8* and 39*.
Which one is correct.

It looks like the temperatures for my GPU are the same between the two programs.
Also what temperatures should I expect from this CPU using stock heatsink? I'm going to use this computer for playing online RPGs.

Here is a screen shot.

CPUID seems more accurate. Load temps should be around 50c ish depending on your ambient temps.

Speedfan has never really been that accurate for me. I stick with HWMonitor or CoreTemp.
