I know every temp reading is really wrong, but this is crazy:

I use MBM for temp reading usually, but...

I was fooling around with my pc: just have a new case etc. so decided to pump up temps...
got to 39°C, not cool, but hey not really bad either...
I rebooted, enetred my bios: 48° this really much hotter, but which is least wrong?
Can I correct it, and which temp should i consider the right one?

Make sure you have MBM reading the correct chip on the motherboard. If you goto MBM site he lists what chips should be used. I suspect if your BIOS reades 48 C and you MBM reads 39 C then you probably have Motherboard temp and CPU temp mixed up in MBM.
