CPU Temp should be based on CPU Package and not old CPU diode (Intel Processor)

I currently use both NZXT CAM and HWiNFO64. I use NZXT CAM for controlling my fans, NZXT AIO cooler, and to quickly view fan speed and temp information, and HWiNFO64 for most accurate temp readings as well as MIN, MAX, and AVG info and logging capabilities. It seems that NZXT CAM uses an older CPU Diode for the CPU temp readings which is inacurate and always displaying a lower temp than the most acurate CPU temp reading in HWiNFO64, which comes from the CPU Package. Please update CAM to use the CPU Package temp so that the reading will be more accurate.

    Bumped. Same concern here. It inflates cpu temps when only using a few cores.
