    Inconsistent CPU temperatures?

    I recently bought and installed the CRYORIG C7 for my AMD-FX 6300. I had intentions of overclocking, but the motherboard was acting weird. But my question: across three different pieces of software, my cpu temp has two different temperatures. Speedfan shows a averagely hot temp (40C+), Speccy shows the expected temperatures, (approx 30-33C average) meanwhile HWMonitor shows both of these temperatures, but under different tabs, the Speedfan temp displaying under motherboard temps, then the speccy temp under cpu temps. Keep in mind this is while the PC is mostly idle (with the exception of a few tabs in chrome.
    Here is a pic of the statistics:

    FYI, I have no idea what AUX is in speedfan. From what I read, it's irrelevant.
    Anyway, thanks for any help given!
