Trying to decide if I really need more than the stock CPU Cooler on my computer. And I really do not have a whole lot of height in the HP ENVY case around 140mm.
AMD OverDrive shows I never really get hot, the Thermal Margin stays in the 70 - 45 range and it is a indicator of how far below you are at below maximum temperature range.
But Speecy, HWinFO64 run between 83C-38C and from what I've read in other post you can no longer get a accurate AMD temperatures with the other CPU monitors on the newer AMD systems with W/8.1 and the newer AMD hardware and sensors.

No problem. You should be getting a maximum of 74 degrees C on the APU, as it says on the official AMD website: http://products.amd.com/en-us/DesktopAPUDetail.aspx?id=44&f1=&f2=&f3=&f4=&f5=&f6=&

Thanks for the answer, but what I really want to know is if the AMD Overdrive can be trusted for accuracy for Thermal Protection. It never shows that I'm really close to maximum temperature and I'm not using my computer for gaming only business purposes, web surfing, watching videos, photo-editing and using MS Office Enterprise.
