Question Getting different temps on BIOs and Open Hardware Monitor

BIOS requires far fewer system resources than when your PC boots into the operating system, so BIOS is normally shown as lower temp configs.

It also can be due to fans running at different curves in BIOS and then under curve configuration once in OS.

Otherwise, as someone who used to run a 6700k, those temps seem really high, both BIOS and desktop.
 
When I booted into bios, it said I was around 44C and when I opened two different monitors after booting up, got different results.
MSI said I'm around 36C but openhardware suggests 60-70ishC.
In BIOS cpu doesn't do anything. It has not warmed up yet. So temperatures will be slightly lower.

MSI Afterburner shows GPU temperature.
Open Hardware Monitor shows cpu temperature.

Not the same thing and obviously cpu and gpu temperatures can be different (depending on load on particular component).

I ordered a liquid cooler today because I noticed they were high. I agree they are too high for my liking.

Thanks for pointing that out. Didn't realize that was showing GPU temp. Do you recommend any other programs for cpu temps?
