So if ubuntu is running at full wouldnt that mean more temps? im showing more temps in windows idle than i am in ubuntu idle!

nothing like hands-on testing is there :)
I would agree that I would trust to the BIOS rather than anything else - it may be that in windows the cpu is being throttled correctly, whereas under Ubuntu it's ignoring the BIOS settings and running at full-tilt all the time, which is going to make a significant difference in temps, particularly as when not under load in windoze my cpu speed throttles back to around 50%. I'm pretty sure there's a cpu-scaling widget you can stick on your deskbar that will show whether it's lowering the speed or not...
