Core temp and socket temp?
FWIW My cpu is the AMD FX-6300

This has probably been posted before... but I was just wanting clarification on something. Is the first temp circled in the picture below core temp and the second one circled socket temp? I just wanted to be sure. 

I assume I want to go by socket temp since apparently there is inaccuracy when it comes to internal temp readings for AMD cpus?

That's right and true for AMD CPUs before Zen.
The first value should be the core temperature and the second might be the socket one. I say 'might' as this depends on mainboard vendor, which however don't provide exact description of that value.
