Default anyone ever use speedfan to detect their comp's temperature?

i posted a thread yesterday that said my comp's temperature was 62 degrees C - that was according to my system bios. however, i used the program speedfan today and it gave me values of 43 degrees or less (there were four values).

is speedfan reliable? thanks.

Speedfan is a very good program but it reads the same sensors that the bios is reading. Check your Heatsink/Fan for dustbunny's. Make sure the fan is spinning.
