So I looked in my bios and my CPU was idling at 55-60C which concerned me. I downloaded CPUID HWMonitor. Looking at the temps on there my CPU seems to be idling at 35-40C. Is CPUID wrong? Which is likely to be the correct reading?

PS: I'm looking at getting a better heat sink soon, will most likely get a H80i because of the performance and it will fit nicely with my high profile ram. If you have any recommendations about heat sinks I should get (air or water) that would work nicely with high profile ram, let me know.
