Hello. I am experiencing some pretty volatile temperatures on my CPU according to MSI Afterburner, where it often shows 50-60 degrees while I'm just using Google Chrome. I have downloaded both HWMonitor and HWiNFO64. I suspect that Afterburner is reacting to the wrong sensor, which seems to be called "tmpi7", but I know next to nothing about this stuff. Hoping someone on here might be able to shine some light on it.
Here are screen shots from HWMonitor and HWiNFO64:

Just use hwinfo. The CPU (Tctl/Tdie) is the one you want to draw the most attention to.
Ignore Afterburner's cpu reading, or better yet, remove it from the on screen HUD in settings.
Uninstall HW Monitor. Most of those readings under Temperatures are motherboard sensors, which users will confuse for core temperatures.

Phaaze88 thanks for your advice, I will follow your recommendations. But if it's the Tctl/Tdie that is the one I should focus on, it means my CPU is pretty hot?
