Can the CPU temperature as indicated in the BIOS be trusted?
The temps in your BIOS (at least i think) are y our most accurate. THe programs you use in windows often can encounter conflicts and give you a wrong reading.
Best way to monitor CPU temp?
What is the best way to monitor CPU temp?
I use motherboard monitor 5, it took some playing with the settings since my board isn't "officially" supported.
How do you know which reading corresponds to what?
I got 3 sensor readings...
1. 26 degrees Celsius
2. 33 degrees Celsius
3. 71 degrees Celsius
My guess is that 1 is case temp, 2 is cpu temp, and 3 i don't know...
any thoughts? my mobo is gigabyte GA-K8NS
3 looks like the VGA card. I don't know of anything else that could be running that hot...
