Default Recommended CPU Temp Programs

I'm wondering what CPU temp program has been considered the most reliable. My bios is telling me that my CPU is running at 50 degrees while MSI's own software and RealTemp have it in the mid to high 30's idle.

My CPU is a Sandy Bridge 2600K and it's being cooled by an H70 with the fans running at the reduced 1600 RPM.

My sarcasm detector must be broken. Stop messing with my mind!

Thanks guys, so far every program is consistent at mid 30s. Anyone know what sensor the Bios uses? Since there is only one reading, does it only take the 1st Core's temp?

No sarcasm. It does put the CPU under a load.

In your opinion, do you think the 50 degree reading is correct? I find it hard to believe that my CPU can go from cold to 50 in such a short period of time.

Depends on what it's reading. If you are reading the die then it can go from 30 to 50 in a split second. I have heard of sandy bridge reading temps and voltages wrong I think. Might want to see if there is a bios update.

At a guess I would say 78F.

I do have the latest bios update. I'll just assume that the Bios is reading high for whatever reason. Everything else I plugged in says it's mid 30s. I'll start doing stress test to see if it gets around 50 @ load.
