The temp monitoring in the bios does something I understand is called binary wrapping, it counts down to zero deg C and then wraps around on itself and counts down from 255.
So once below zero temps are achieved you have to allow for this so a reported temp of say 248 would be :- 255 - 248 = 7 or 7 deg C below zero,
But that is just in the bios. Once booted to windows I use "CoreTemp" to monitor the cpu temp......I have no idea what is happening with that it seems to go down to individual core readings of 9,5,5,9 and stop there even though I know from the bios that the cpu temp is going lower than that. But once under load it does start to register correctly above those temps.
