That's the temperature of the CPU in case you didn't realize that. The main processor (AMD or Intel) attached to your motherboard with the big heatsink/fan on top.

I forget if it shows multiple cores, but if so and you see several numbers (like FOUR) that's for each core in your CPU. A "4-core" CPU for example contains four of what used to be entire CPU's joined together.

Thanks! Could you tell me what it means when people say "Idle" when referring to pc temps?

"Idle" refers to when the PC is on but very little is happening as opposed to "load" which means the computer is being stressed in a game or application to stress the CPU and/or graphics.
