H80i water cooling - Temperature issues

Hi there, just built a new pc build.
I installed a h80i water cooler into my system and set up the radiator in the dual fan mount setup with the fans pushing out the back of the case, connected the usb link/power cables and it ran. installed corsair link and noticed corsair link displayed different temps to CPU ID h/w monitor.

I have checked the asrock utility for my motherboard, I have checked cup id h/w monitor I have checked speccy and corsair link

the temperatures varied on each from 2-22-25-40-0
and now speccy and cpu h/w monitor say 18c. asrock motherboard utility says 0c/32f on cpu/motherboard

sooooo I broke the temperature sensors... program bug....?

new pc specs
990fx extreme 4
amd fx 8120
120gb Kingston ssd
ddr3 1600mhz 8gb
h80i water cooler

The pc runs fine for gaming/general use but im a bit concerned about which temperature is actually correct o.o

If you run more than one temp program at the same time it's a good chance you will get goofy readings. They use the same temp sensors at the same time and fight each other.

Your bios temp should be working and in most case very accurate.

Use Core Temp and that`s it.

Your bios will show you a proper cpu temprature, usually showing you the highest temp of all the cores.

Speccy is garbage for reporting true cpu temps.

core temp comes bundled with so much bloatware I couldn't get myself through the install >.>
also bios is reporting n/a n/a n/a for everything except for cpu fan 2

cpu id hardware monitor is now reporting amd fx 8120 as 20c and speccy says 20c...
^ thus my problem... the programs are all over the place and the bios isn't reporting temps anymore

There`s another great program called Open Hardware Monitor that lets you throw a cpu temp gadget on the desktop.

so uhm. to the point of my post. how do I restore my bios temp detection and such. I know several good programs there just having conflicting results and now all the sensors show nothing except for cpu id hardware monitor and speccy and corsair link... which FINALLY AGREE despite the bios reporting N/A
