    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.

    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
