Hi all,
I am using motherboard monitor 5 and it says that my temp is 107F, but then i noticed under the mainboard information it states that my motherboard temp is only 77F, and my CPU is 66.2F. Which one is closest to being true? I dont want to burn my chip up but don't want to be paranoid at the same time, hehe. Any help is appreciated.

Look, neither are 100% trustfull. But we have to supouse the bios readings are the most close to the true temp. If you are getting only 66.2F, it's quite obvious u will notice a very small warmit emaning from the cooler when u touch it. So, touching the dissipator are the first test you should do. Actually, I only use MBM to verify temp's when I close my case...
