HI.

I used AMD Overdrive and have temperatures of 18-20 C and 21-22 in the room has no way to have a temperature of 18-20 C.
And in SpedFan have temperatures 35-38 c.
Which of these is normal or real

You want to read "core temps" not any "CPU" or similar temp.

Just an FYI on AMD FX series processor temps...

AMD engineering has looked into the issue and confirmed that the temps below 40C reported by the common temp applets like Core Temp, HWiNFO, OCCT, AMD Overdrive, etc. are NOT accurate. The temps between 40C-70C are quite accurate however. AMD engineering has advised that in the next iteration of AMD Overdrive, this issue will be fixed. There is no word as to when the next iteration of AMD Overdrive will be released however.

Some folks also confuse "CPU" temp or similar and "core temp". CPU temp is the thermister below the CPU socket in the mobo and it typically reads 10C-25C higher than core temps depending on load and length of time under load. The 24/7 max temp that AMD specifies is the core temp. Disregard the "CPU" temp as this is a carry over from the days before you could read the internal CPU/APU core temp.

As a result some folks see below ambient temps when their CPU is at idle. Adding a temp offset to make your idle and light load temps appear normal will produce wildly high, inaccurate temps when the CPU/APU is under load so do NOT add a temp offset - per AMD engineering.

It's worth noting however that the only temp that actually counts is the full load temp. If your CPU is below the 24/7 max temp that AMD specifies for your model CPU/APU then you are fine. Unlike the Phenon II CPUs that tended to like to be below 55C, the FX models run fine up to the temps AMD specifies for each model CPU which is typically in the 61C-70C range for 24/7 use on desktop model FX CPUs.

Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.

Before I had the AMD 955 overclocked to 3600 but it was not so hot.
8320 in normal use stand on the 33-41 c in game reached 50-54 thousand that is ok?
The cooling  http://www.bequiet.com/en/cpucooler/309
Temperature is ok or not applied well paste. I used Ceramique 2

cool I think it is quite good

I downloaded the latest AMD overdriver now shows me the correct temperature.
on the motherboard and processor.
I did one test of 20 min and temperature stability stabilizes temperature 52 c is ok for this processor?

The 24/7 max core temp for the FX-8320 is 61C so you are just fine.
