Wait, you can't see the individual Core temperatures with HWMonitor? That isn't right...it should so...
Correct, the free version of AIDA64 is a trial version. You can activate your trial version into a full version very easily...but I will not go into detail about it here. You'll have to look in to it yourself .
Another program you can also try: HWiNFO. http://www.hwinfo.com/
I don't see the reason to monitor each individual Cores. the max operating temperature indicated by AMD is the CPU temperature anyways.
MisterEd is also correct. There is just a temperture sensor for the CPU. Eaxctly where it is, it's been a mystery since socket AM3 came out in 2009.
Some say it is under the CPU socket on the motherboard, some say it is within the CPU chip itself...
ALSO if you are seeing temperatures below room / ambient temperature...it is NOT accurate. A few temperature monitoring programs shows this issue.
