Default Seed Fan Question

Hey I was just wondering is the program Speedfan really that accurate? because I checked it before restarting my computer and it said my (local temp) which I'm assuming is my CPU was 53 C, then I restart my comp and go into the bios and it says my CPU temp is 42 C. Just wondering if anyone knows much about speedfan.

Well, ya gotta remember, the actual booting phase is one of the heaviest phases a computer goes through when in use. At the bios, it hasn't started all the hardcore loading of an OS. So of course the load is very light on your computer, thus the temps should be lower. After booting an OS, having programs running in the background constantly, of course the load will be heavier, thus higher cpu temps. So I'm sure speedfan's accurate since it's probably using the same heat sensors that your bios is using.

Later-A-Much, and LONG LIVE THE D!

Yea that makes sense but for it to drop 11 C in 15 seconds seems weird
