Default CPU temp or Core temp? E6420 NOOB

Just got it up and running last, night, my first rig, no smoke no sparks!!!

I used PC Wizard 2006 to monitor my stuff.

I disabled the "speed step thingy" in the DS3's bios, and got my Freezer 7 at full blast. I'm just testing and getting used to it.

I get this for temperature (E6420)

Processor temp. 25 deg.cel.
Core 1 temp. 36
Core2 temp 36
Mobo (system) 44

No overclock yet and under PRIME 95 for 4 hours now.

My question is: when you folks OC your C2D's what CPU temp do you consider? Core or Processor?:help:
i7 4770K @ 4.0GHz / Corsair H100i / MSI Z97A Gaming 6 / 16GB Kingston Hyper X 1.5V 1600 / MSI GTX1070 FE / Samsung 850 Evo 500gb / Corsair Performance Pro 128GB SSD / Intel 520 120GB SSD / WD Black 640 GB storage / XFX 850 watts Black Edition PSU

ROG G53SX laptop: i7 2630QM / 12GB DDR3 / GTX560m 2GB / 750GB 7200rpm (14 000 3Dmarks06)
