if this is the wrong forum, i hope you can forgive me and kindly move the topic to the appropriate forum.
so i just built a computer for my little brother and i'm a bit concerned with this reading i'm getting from speedfan. core1 is giving me 31c but core2 is burning at 54c. this is contradictory to the reading i'm getting from the coretemp program, which is giving me a 39c and 33c reading.
i'm thinking that speedfan is getting that reading from another sensor on the mobo? because i figure that temperature has to come from SOMEWHERE, right? how can i go about finding out what that is? my main concern is bringing that temperature DOWN. anyone else had a similar problem?

thanks in advance for your help, i don't want my little bro's computer to fry. he saved up for it and that would totally suck.
