Windows 7: Maybe problem with sensor on mb ?

Maybe problem with sensor on mb ?

When I run some tools like HWInfo, Speccy, AIDA and etc... I got hight temps on motherboard and some others. While when I go into BIOS I got pretty good temps.


Could this be a screwed sensor ? I touch the mobo after that, its not heat. Only the heatsink for chipset down.

The pc was shut down for a 30+ min. and when I start it, checked in BIOS, and again I got temps like 64/65 C.
There is no way to get heat for a less than 30 sec.

So, I need some help here.

Thank, Boshko.

Based on the screenshot, your motherboard looks a little on the high side, but I've always been told that software may not always read the sensors properly.

The processor temps look good, so how is the cooling in your case?

You can check about cooling here. It's the same, but the parts are different.

Most of these type of apps usually get some of the sensors wrong, you will see some strange readings.
Just compare them to other monitoring apps, none of them are perfect.
