Ok so i give up i have coretemp realtemp prime95 and speedfan. Speedfan is showing my cpu at 80-85 degrees celsius idle. when i used prime95 at 100% load it showed my cpu temp in speedfan lower to about 40 and my cores are all running between 35-55 degrees celsius and thats idle to max load. I cant figure out how to lower my cpu temp in speedfan and why its reading so hot i have cleaned the entire pc from dust so i know nothing is clogged. Also because its so high it is making my heatsink run loud and its noisy and i cannot figure out how to fix it. Im running an i7 2600k with a cooler master v8. Again all the cores are running low and the cpu is running high at all times except when i am running high loads. Anyone wanna take a stab at this?

Use hw monitor. Speedfan, and coretemp will give false results. Especially speed fan, though Your cooler might not be mounted on properly.

I quit relying on speedfan long ago, I find it works well for some computers and is absolutely inaccurate on others.
