Motherboard temps are suspect at best. Other software programs may be better but are still not as acurate as a direct measurement. If you have a desktop pop the case open and use a IR themometer.They are not really expensive and they are just fun to play with too!!!.

This is the best guide to setting up Realtemp to give semi-accurate (not a Charlie plug) readings.
IR thermometers are fun to play with, but not that great for detecting CPU/GPU temps. First you have to have a straight shot to the CPU, which you don't have, and if the IR thermometer isn't calibrated to the specific surface/reflectance it is measuring, it is fairly useless. All you get from an IR thermometer is the temp of the heatsink. It is fun to play with though.
