To the OP...the bios temps are the more accurate. People would go against what I say here, but IMO download a program called coretemp, and before using it, go to settings and enter a temperature offset of 12C. This will give you similar readings to what you have in the BIOS.
Back off your voltage too, just for heat and stability reasons. 4GHz should need 1.45-1.475
Thank you. Voltages have been brought down to 1.45. I'm thinking Stress testing is just to much for an Air Cooler in general? I do run games like crazy, Left 4 Dead2, Mafia 2, and they run without any issues, no blue screens, no system shutdowns. One other thing i did do is also increase the CPU-NB Frequency to 2400 @ 1.36v, I see a difference in the OS on start up, maybe its just me. Reason why i have this mobo is because theres not to many AMD/SLI mobo's out there. Its between MSI NF750-G55/ASUS M4N75TD/ASUS M4N98TD EVO, and so far this one has the better reviews. This mobo ain't going anywhere for awhile.
