Windows 7: Is it really overheating, bad sensor, or another problem?

Great news. Let us know when you get your new power supply installed.

Just a reminder; always post your temps in (C).

The best way to see true temps and voltages is in the bios.

It's been suggested that I pick one monitoring program instead of 3. So here are the results.
The first one is the computer working on video compression.
The second is after it finished.
The third is only included because of the huge jump in temperature that I don't understand because it was idling.
A few minutes later, while erasing the files I had just done, the cat jumped on the table, there was a static discharge when he touched the computer case and the computer went down. I'm thinking the power supply is not properly grounded. I wont be using it again until the new power supply is installed.
I welcome any other ideas.

I know there's a way to line these up horizontally, but I don't know how to do it...

Temps look okay but the voltages are just horrible.
Do as AddRAM has suggested in post #12 and compare.
That will give you some idea if HWMonitor is working properly with you system.

I think the main issue here is the PSU is underpowering everything 12+ is way below 10+volts no way should you be exceeding almost 2.volts on Vcore the PSU is a situation for you because it might burn everything up you keep using it

I agree I would not use the computer with that power supply.

LeonDroid wait for the new power supply. Then get back to us.
Were open 24/7/365.

I would also install a new motherboard battery. (Cmos)
Vbat should be 3.0 volts or very very close.

The temp that concerned me was "TMPIN2 @ 117 C, or maybe that doesn't mean what I think it does. The computer idled from about 11:30 PM to 1:00 AM, so I wonder what caused the sudden temp spike.

I agree. I now believe the PSU is improperly grounded, which can cause all kinds of problems. These are not even the worst. I'm wondering if I should check this by running a wire from the chassis to the ground screw on an outlet. A replacement will be here next week.

I will say again. I do not recommend turning on your computer until you replace the power supply.

With a bad power supply and a weak Vbat I would not trust any reading your are getting.
Replace the power supply and the motherboard battery and let us know when that is done and we can start again with any problems you might have.

Agreed, it`s not worth risking your hardware if you have a dodgy PSU

Sorry it took an extra week to get this done. I had some unexpected things come up.
I got the new PSU, installed it, and put the computer to work doing what it will be used for most often. Here are 3 screenshots of HWMonitor at boot up, while idling, and working. It's the best I can do unless there is a program that can used to stress test the PC. The new batteries should be here in a day or two.
