put the sensor rod somewhere in between all of the parts and try to get it as close as possible to each and also make sure that your cpu fan doesn't blow on the sensor cause that will throw off the reading a lot.

Here is a link that shows the method (use the "Top of the CPU probe") You decide to use the other method its all on you don't blame me lol. Although I have done it and it worked great I just don't suggest to do so.It's not for everybody.

Getting the correct core temp from your CPU!s
