    I have the same setup and in my case the CMOS temperature reading is always lower than Probe. Don't know what to say except there is probably a large margin for error on these things and you should use the most conservative values while leaving yourself a fair amount of room for eroneous readings.

    These temperatures are really best use as a reference for your own purposes and don't have much use when comparing different systems.

    best way to know what your temps are is to hook up some hardware temp probes :thumb:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
