Default DUDES how hot is my q6600!?

This is kinda bugging me cos I don't know what to believe:

Now I know obviously it's not 1*C.
But I also would hazard a guess that it's not 60*C either .
These are idle temperatures, my psu (extracting) fan is pumping out cool air, liek stuff that'd come out your car fans when you're trying to cool it down. The zalman 7000 flower on my q6600 is running full speed right now, and that is COOL to the touch, like not luke warm, but cool. The northbridge is touchable, but isn't a very good cooler, but still. One thing I can think of is when I attached my cooler like so:, it was on there tight as it would go, but would still wobble, now if i try and wobble it tho, it doesn't, so i dunno, do you think it would be pulling the thing apart, regreasing, reputting it on, though it was tight the first time. Or just that the motherboard is a little pain in the butt for giving out temps?

What other programs can yee think of, not everest or core temp.
Don't they all source their data from the same sensors on the motherboard tho?:S
