The only temp that matters is the Max core temp. AMD's website specs are woefully poor so they do not list a Max. CPU temp for the Athlon X4 750K that I can find. Typically the Max 24/7 temp for these CPUs is in the 61C-70C range.

I personally prefer Core Temp software as it only list the CPU core temps and not other confusing mis-labeled temps.

I was having similar issues. Basically the software that gives readings between 40-70 deg celsius is the more reliable reading. I'm waiting on a new version of AMD Overdrive as the current doesn't read my FX6350 accurately (actually I haven't checked in a while for the latest version). Speedfan seems to be the best fit for me currently though. Check my post as I got a pretty good explanation from AMD regarding my situation: http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=446&threadid=169389&enterthread=y

All programs show a different temp but all of them are comparably close but this isnt a bad temp for this if your really worried about it clean out any dust and reconfigured your fans. According to HWMonitor my FX8350 runs anywhere from 25c to 35c at idle

The only temp that actually matters is the full load Core Temp. As long as it's below 61C on the FX-8xxx series, you are within AMD's 24/7 temp and all is good. The idle temps and any temps below 40C are inaccurate, especially the farther you get from 40C - per AMD engineering.
