    Everest, Sandra and Core Temp show the same on my i7 920 processor. At least
    within a couple of degC. Bios temp should be the higher one since the hlt
    command is not active outside the OS (this could change if you have a lot of
    processes running). Make sure you have the latest versions of your
    monitoring software.
