A slightly different table:
BIOS measurement  11.985    = 12.00
W7 speedfan       12.10     = 12.02
in4/lm_sensors    3.02/3.04 = 12.03 (2800MHz)
in4/lm_sensors    3.02/3.04 = 12.04 (800MHz)

So it does look like 12V in the BIOS mode really is a hair lower than it
is in either linux or W7.  Using 3.03 for the avg in4 measurement and
12.035 for the avg DMM measurement gives a scale factor of 3.97,
assuming the DMM is actually correct.
