my BIOS registers my CPU temps around 40 but in windows using CPUZ's Hardware Monitor software it reads 29/30ish. What should I rely on?

    What is the LCD on the Motherboard showing?
    Remember while you are in the Bios there is Zero Load on the CPU so it is best to boot into an OS to read the LCD on the MB.

    See what core temp reads.

    LCD on the motherboard? regarding core temps app. is that supposed to be better than HW Monitor? I don't really wanna install multiple apps for the same thing.

    Better? Maybe. All software apps can give false readings.

    For the most part Yes.
    I set my offset in Core Temp based on the LCD while booted into the OS.
    I will not use "HW Monitor" Another good tool is Aida 64 Extreme from FinalWire

    the temp in the bios should be reading the same as the debug LCD (if you have one). that is the cpu package temp, core temp will tell you the temp of each core. also remember and fan profile setting or pump setting if on water, can make a difference while in bios if they are run by a software app, they will run at default while in bios which could cause higher temps. CPUID hardware monitor while in windows should read the same as the cpu die (package) temp on the debug LCD (if you have one)

    Well the EK block has done about the best I believe...it makes sense it is one of the slightly bigger ones, I mean that is like 2-3x+ the volume some of them other ones.
     
    Do you ever trust the Bios really? V readout might be more accurate now though. actually it does look ok though. but you will know it's doing well idles fall and it's harder climbing with loads man.
