I am currently using a x470 MSI Gaming Pro motherboard. When playing video games, my temperature in the bios is 30-50 while on a temperature software I installed (cam) it shows 60-80. Which of them is correct? And why is there such a big difference between the two?

BIOS temps are usually higher, not lower. What CPU temps are you reading and with what app? Ryzen core temps should be read with Ryzen Master for accurate results.

If you're using a "X" CPU, there is an offset to consider. You should be reading Tdie rather than Tctl. Read this article.
