I just received my 2017 speced out MacBook, I just installed iStat Menus and I am looking at the temp sensors and I was wondering what temp sensor I should use to display my processor temp? I have:

CPU Core 1/2
CPU Core PECI
CPU Cores
CPU PECI Die
CPU Proximity
CPU System Agent Core

Is there anywhere that explains all temp sensors?

That was literally the least helpful reply ever.
Aha. And the only one:)

The intel app I mentioned showes u the processor temperature u asked about.

As there is now way to overclock or tune a fan, what else do u need?

iStat uses the API from the Intel App to gather the data mentioned above, there are numerous CPU temp sensors listed above.
