New Build, should I be worried about the temp reading in the Bios?

#1Ares_TargaryenPosted 8/28/2013 6:50:09 AM
I just bought a AMD FX-6300 + msi 970a-G46 yesterday and the Bios is telling me the CPU temp is like 61 C (temp start lower, but then slowly raises).

In windows, using hwmonitor or coretemp the temperature never goes above 52 C when using Prime95.

I have updated to the newest bios and I am 99% sure I installed the heatsink properly as I reinstalled it 3 times to make sure that wasn't the problem. No overclock, but using the stock hsf (for now). I did turn off the AMD boost, since it was making the vcore go to 1.47v O_O

Should I be worried or is the bios reading wrong? I read that updating the bios fixed it for some people, but it didn't for me.

The AMD temperature readers do not read accurately.

99% sure you are fine.
