Can anyone substantiate this? I have a KT3 Ultra ARU and I get some wierd result with MBM and the included software that MSI provides to monitor CPU temps. What should be my system temp is always a few degrees from the CPU temp no matter what I do to keep the system temp down, that includes opening the case and blowing fresh air in with a small house fan. I just make sure the higher temp does not go outa bounds! Any ideas?
