Default Which temp to watch


I'm using Everest to monitor my PC. In the system tray there are 2 icons for CPU temp. One is "CPU Diode" and the other just "CPU Temp". The diode temp under load is WAAAAYYYYYYY higher that CPU temp under load, but at idle they are pretty much the same. Which one of the 2 should I be keeping my eye on?

Any help would be great!

AMD64 X2 4400+
DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
2GB Kingston Hyper-X (2-3-2-6)
TT Big Typhoon
eVGA 7900GT KO Superclocked (650/1650)
250GB Maxtor DiamondMax SATA2 HDD
Hiper Type-R 580W SLi PSU
19" Sony Trinitron CRT
