Hey all. I check my temp while windows is open with SiSoft Sandra. Just as an example, I checked it and it said (sorry, I don't remember Celcius) 109 degrees F, I restarted and checked what the bios said, and it said the temp was only 93 degrees F. I assume the bios is more correct... Is there another program that can read the temps accurately? Thanks!

What motherboard?

the bios is your safe bet. i think the software might be reading the second sesor. it might actually be reading the motherboard/case temperature. most programs will let you change that, so try displaying both or all sensors.
