Which to trust, on temp reports..
Ok here it is.. I have 3 different temps reported to me.. by 3 different sources.. the motherboard in the bios says it is running at 45C for cpu0, and 42 for cpu1.. in windows through Sandra it shows 33c on cpu0, and 30c on cpu1.. and finally a program that came with the Gigabyte motherboard.. and it shows 50c for cpu0 and 48c for cpu1..
which to trust to be close to right.. I know the motherboard temp sensor is hardly ever right.. but I have no other way to test temps right now.. and this is the second motherboard.. and video card.. b/c the first got killed b/c of heat.. I don't want this to happen again..
so any ideas?In life one must Chill

If you just pressed the power button and entered bios, the cpu will of course be a lot cooler. If you restart the machine after having it on for a while, bios might report similar readings to the gigabyte monitor sw.
Sandra might be looking at different sensors than the monitor software.
Those temps don't look high though - so I don't believe temp killed your system, perhaps it was a faulty PSU.
My bios reports similar readings as asus mb monitor and mbm5.
As those readings are often faulty, trust no one.

I'd take all the readings there and then after the comps been on a while, when temperatures are stable, and reboot, hit the BIOS, and compare temps. Whatever one matchs the CPU Temp in the BIOS is the right one.
