Hey everyone...just a quick CPU/Video card temperature check request. I just finished water cooling my system last night, and I wanted to make sure these numbers are in-line with what they should be.
Athlon XP 3000+ @2262 mhz, 1.65 Vcore (just a tiny OC, no time to really do it last night) GeForce 6800 GT @ 426 mhz gpu clock, 1.15 ghz ram clock.
Cooling system is a Koolance Exos 2, w/ CPU-300 block and one of those Koolance NV blocks.
CPU temp is 38-39 at idle, 43 at max load, 41 during normal gaming. GPU temp is 47-48 at idle, not sure under load. Ambient room temp is probably around 23-24 C.
One oddity is that my bios is reporting a CPU temp that's much higher (about 50C) but MBM and the cooler thermal probe (which seems to be about 8C cooler than the cpu die) don't indicate anything like that. Are bios readings ever wrong? And are these temps decent?

i would think that the bios readings would be more accurate.. they tend to be integrated and can directly test the temperature.
a thermal probe on the other hand is generally not in direct contact with your cpu therefore giving you a cooler temperature

My opinion is that integrated temperature die are not accurate at all they usually are pretty cheap to keep the cost low. One thing is for sure your temps are fine!
