Windows 7: Hardware Temp Sensor???

Hardware Temp Sensor???

OK have read a few web site info about temp sensors, most cover desktops and a few touch on laptops. Well I have been monitoring the temp of my CPU and I have found the 100 C is the max temp, Well not knowing it I play UT3 on high performance setting and it reached a high temp of 105, which I think means I either have the wrong sensor reading or AMD doesn't know the top temp cause at 105 I would think I should have fried my CPU since I was playing for at least 30 mins.

So I am basicly asking for help on finding the right Temp sensor and program to monitor it and if possible warn me in some way or put the laptop into sleep mode if it temp reaches to high.

I have my specs filled out and using

Core temp .99.5 which was recommended to me.

Also please explain in simple terms please, the doctors have me on 15mg morphine IR and muscles relaxers so I need it simple right now LOL. I will try and find the sites I visited if that would help. Oh and any info that might be need I will find and post as this heat issue concerns me.

CPU ID 0x200F31
revision LG-B1
VID 1.1250v -set to high perf.
vid .9500v set to balanced CPU running at 50%

I think I got my request across the best I could. Thanks for reading this and any help I can get.

HWMonitor, RealTemp, SpeedFan, are ones I have used. I really don't like speedfan but it's the only one that will read some CPUs I have found. HWMonitor is good but none are always right. None are completely dependable.
