Default Sandra and CPU Temperatures

I was doing a 3 hour game session and popped out to see what my CPU temp was at, Sandra reported 150 farenheit which is pretty toasty! When I checked the temp in my actual BIOS is was 30 degrees less. How accurate is Sandra in this regard? Guessing the BIOS is the best place to check. It just seemed like it was pretty accurate until I gamed for more then an hour.

gotta realize that between the time you check your temps in Sandra and the short time it takes to reboot and check the temp in BIOS it has probably cooled off some. so i'd bet that Sandra and the bios actually match. doesn't take long for a cpu to cool back off
