boy you got alot to learn, just because your heat sink only goes one way doesnt mean its correctly mounted, or that the thermal interface material is correctly applied either...
what heatsink do you use and what paste if any, did you put on it?(that aerocool turbine lookin thing for a heatsink?)
if i were you id get just abotu every program that read temps and compared them, and then i would download prime95 and do large fft's watch the temp rise and see how high your temp can go, if it stays were you say it is i guess your ok, but if it gets higher your gonna be in trouble somewhere down the road
i get like a 27-9c reading in my bios when i first start it, because that is ambient temp and my cpu hasnt been under a load of any kind when i first enter bios......
