    When I flashed my bios yesterday I noticed that my cpu was somehow overclocked. It was running at 3.3ghz and 1.5v. I went in the bios returned the temps back to the stock speeds. Before the bios flash my temps according to Everest (which is 100% accurate) were around 36-36-36. Now after this whole thing, they are 36-36-46. My CPU temp is 10C higher than the core temps. I'm sure that this is the case. I've checked bios settings, cpuz showings, everest showings. Everything is as it should be except for the 46 cpu temp. I know that these temps are good, and some people would say to just leave it alone, but I want to figure this out. I've been thinking, and I thought that maybe the bios before were wrong and the temps were wrong, so actualy the showings now are the correct ones(i think is highly unlikable).

    Need some help with this issue.

    I'd say don't worry about it.I have a Q6600 that has different temps for each of its 4 cores and the CPU temp is almost always 10 degrees lower. Although, a while back in my motherboard forum, there was a discussion about a new BIOS update that reports higher temps for my motherboard, so it might be possible that the new BIOS is modified to report different/more accurate temps.
