Gigabyte temp reporting is so far out. Why?

I built a system with a G/byte 7N400E-L and an xp2800 barton.

All fitted together well and fired up 1st time. I have built over 20 systems and usually use Asus, but decided to use G/B for a change. I am very impressed except that the bios shows the cpu at 56c and Sandra shows 39c. system is rock solid and even enjoys a little clock to 180mhz with no problem and boots as 3000xp.

Why would this be? I have always been told, and like to believe Bios, but it is surly wrong in this case?

Any ideas?

Temperature sounds reasonable to me, the Bios one that is. I have a Gigabyte GA7VAXP with a barton 2500+ and it runs between 49 and 55, danger point for the CPU is 85 so no worries and its totally stable. I think the problem with Sandra is its designed to try to give you info on any motherboard and that my be incredibly differcult. Why not try Gigabytes own system monitoring tool Easytune I think its called should be on your driver disk under tools and see what it says. Or you could download it from their website.
