What is the more important temp to monitor?
Its my understanding that Ryzen Master records the average temp, and MSI/HWInfo/GPU-Z are recording the peak temps of a single core.

So which one should I be paying attention to more?

Use Ryzen Master.

Peak temps don't really matter if they only last for a millisecond or two...what matters is sustained temps...which is why AMDs own utility averages out the temp. If your average across all cores was 85c that would be an issue...one core hitting that during a momentary burst of single threaded activity is not an issue.

Ppl tend to use Ryzen Master cause the other programs seems to dont have accurate readings with ryzen 3000 series.
Would make sense as thats saying idle 35-39c and while gaming a max of 60, whereas everything else is erratic! MSI has me as 35-60 idle, spiking constantly, and anything up to 75c while gaming

Cheers, makes a lot more sense like that, but will stop panicing now, when I see something say 74c on MSI xD
