How accurate do you think bios temps are?

It seems like they always increase after some amount of time in bios. And I think it only monitors core temp.

Hello... when in the BIO's, you are not using any CPU or GPU intensive power... use HWmonitor, for in windows and software usage readings.

Depends on the motherboard, but many do take up CPU resources in bios.

Bios temps are generally a LOT more accurate than various software monitoring programs in Windows ...
All the best Brett
