Best program to monitor intel i5 4670k CPU temps.

Is there a program to monitor the Intel 4th generation processors that's pretty accurate? or am I better off checking the temps in the motherboard Bios? I'm using the latest version of Core Temp but, it reads about 10 degrees (C.) cooler than what the bios reads. which is 38-40 in bios and 28-32 in core temp with stock cooler. I've still got to get a better cooler. I broke two push pins on my Arctic 7 cooler removing it before I figured out they pulled straight up. It was 4 years ago since I installed it and my memory isn't what it used to be.

Core Temp isn't very accurate below 30C or so but is at higher temps, I'm told. There is hwmonitor, Real Temp, or Speccy too.

Checking BIOS won't help you see temps in Windows and is usually a bit higher than at idle.

CoreTemp is an excellent program for monitoring CPU temperatures. You can set it show the temperature of each CPU core in the notification area of the taskbar. It will not interfere with any other programs (I found Speccy will cause Macrium Reflect to crash).

At lower temperatures, no CPU temperature monitoring program is going to be completely accurate (the actual range depends on the CPU) but at higher temperatures, where you need to be accurate, they will be pretty accurate.

HWInfo is the go-to program for many overclockers, so give that a try.
