    Sandra reports my proc temp at 72 C :) (Albatron PX845PEV Pro) bios reports it at 34 C... Hardware probe (seated on the edge of the P4 processor under the heatsink (as close to the heat spreader I can get without comprimising the AS3)) and it reads 33 C. What board are you using? I think the problem lies in the winbond chipset itself to be completely honest... This phenomina is not related to just this albatron board (although, if you got a beta bios comming for the mobo i just posted above (and see sig heh) I'd like to get me hands on it).

    Anyway, the bios reports the temps from the winbond SuperIO controller, I believe through probing the internal CPU diode, but I suppose that's wishful thinking (only reason I come to this conclusion is because there's a 1 degree variance on my board)

    Just checked with the 2.8 (running a px845pe pro ii) and it's set up the same (probe wise) as this and it's reporting 36 C in the bios, but the probe reads 38 C

    Edit: Machines were shut down after being loaded (well the 2.8 is always loaded (seti@home)) and the 2.53 was running seti at the time of shutdown too, so upon entry into bios, temps maybe dropped about 1 or 2 degree's C (3 at the most).

    That's good to hear. I'm not as worried now. I just flashed the new BIOS they sent me. It adds another temp readout. It used to look like this...

    System
    CPU temp

    now...

    System
    CPU temp (inside)
    CPU temp (on PCB)

    I'm at 30*, 49*, 28* BTW

    That 49* shows up as 95* in MBM5 and Sandra, and was nowhere to be seen in the old BIOS. Everything seems to be running fine though, so I'm guessing everything is OK.

    One thing about the BIOS they sent though, my USB mouse doesn't work. I had to use the ps2 adapter.

    One thing to remember. When you boot your comp to Bios the comp doesn't have any software loaded yet. When windows boots the comp had programs running and thus the temps will be higher. but a temp that high makes me wonder about a lot of things...not sure what they are but a lot of things! My temp diffs between Bios and Op system are only a few degrees at the most

    Also with the BIOS update make sure that the new BIOS has USB support enabled. Sometimes that option will be turned off and you will need to enter BIOS and reenable it to get the USB ports to work.
