    More important, what is your load temps? Compare both. Idle temps in bios and thermistor doesn't determine much.

    thermal probe is more accurate the say to add 10-20 c to the bios temp and that is the true reading......under the core where the reading is taken there is usually air in between which causes the false reading.

    "thermal prob attached under cpu"

    Doesn't that mean the mobo temp probe in the socket?

    no, it means one that is actually taped to the back of the cpu die itself.
