Which temp to trust?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Which temp do I trust? Which temp do I want to make sure doesn't exceed that 50-55-60 degree mark?

BIOS says:

"CPU Temp: 47 C" (idle in BIOS)

CoreTemp says:

"Core #0: 50 C" (idle in Windows)

Remember that your bios isnt idle, it will have some load on it (I forgot how much) so that seems right to be a few degreees higher then in windows at idle. What temp program are you calling windows.
