    My PC was frequently hitting 60 degrees under load and nothing I did seemed to help.
    I recently got a new graphics card. It worked fine while gaming but when I booted my PC the display was flickering until windows loaded.
    I found that I needed a BIOS upgrade to fully support the new graphics card. I did it and while the display dosen't flicker anymore, look at the effect it had on the temperature.

    Can a BIOS upgrade have such an effect on the temperature or was the previous BIOS simply not reporting the temp properly? How do you explain that?

    Sometimes, some BIOS can behave erratically... I have an update for my BIOS currently, but when i install it, my VID increases dramatically and the CPU overheats and shuts down! Dunno why but it does not supply correct VID. Maybe your previous one was doing the same for you.. I really dont think it would report bogus tempratures..

    Yeah the bios is giving faulty reading.
    Firstly, if the cpu fan spins with 1350 RPM then your CPU is sure to burn out, but yours is working fine.
    Secondly, except under the effect of liquid cooling the processor can't give so low temperatures reading.

    Check your BIOS settings, and go for technical expert in your locality if you can, before something drastic happens to your rig.

    @Shovik: My query was answered a month ago. You shouldn't dig up old topics like this.
