Confused about temps

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys new to the forum, I was told this was the best place to get some help so here goes. I recently upgraded my CPU to a phenom 9500 on an asus crosshair mb, now I also went and got a themalright ultra 120 extreme. When I look at my temps in bios it shows 50c, when I look at them in HWMonitor is shows TMPIN0 as 50c, but the core temps are 30c. Which of these are my proper temps? I would appreciate any help you guys can give. Thanks.

BIOS puts load on CPU I think so in windows at idle it should be lower.

What the specs fill out your system specs in CP what are your BIOS settings? Is your vcore set to auto by chance?
