A month or 2 ago i bought an abit kt7, a Duron 650, 128 MB133 Kingston and a watercooling-set. I'm still looking for a cheap conductive glue, but thats not the problem.

If i access my bios (at 100*6.5) my cpu temperature starts at about 27 degrees Celcius and then rises to 49 within a couple of minutes! (default settings)

BUT, when i run win2k pro for a while, push the reset button and look at the cpu temp, it's 36 degrees again! When i run the torture test of prime95 for a while, i also dont feel the water-tubes warming up.
So i think my temp-measurement is really screwed.

Anyone else had this "problem"?
