I'd trust MBM5 for temps.

i forgot to mention that i also got the core cell that came with the mb and everytime i start it, the darn alarm is going off and shuts it down
i can reach in and feel the finns on the cpu heat sink and they feel cool to the touch
but the video card felt kinda to warm so
i just added a little mini fan to the video card to see if that helps

If we are talking about the MSI K8N series? (that's the one in the siggy)

Forget motherboard monitor.

Download from MSI the latest edition of their own motherboard monitor program. On my board (K8N Neo4) it's known as "Core Center". It gives options, alarms...temp readings..and voltage readings. (basically it's designed to work with their own hardware)

The two programs should be reading almost the same temps.
Some motherboards just give false temp readings .
Only way to tell for sure is to use a digital thermometer .
