My System Specs

Default To trust in Bios settings or monitoring software?

So I have a 970A-G45 MSI board and I use multiple hardware monitoring programs. I notice though when I manually set voltages in the bios the readings from the monitoring software fluctuate quite a bit. For example when I oc'd my 955 chip I had set voltages in the bios at 1.38v however when monitoring voltages with software they would fluctuate from 1.34v to 1.42v depending on load. So now I don't know which to trust since I don't want to go over "safe" voltage on my new chip. Almost makes me wish I had an Asus ROG board with reading points for a multi-meter.
