I recently built a new pc with the Athlon X4 760K and I started to use HWMonitor to check my cpu temps while gaming and i noticed pretty high temps with a max of like 90c with the stock cooler. Bios temps were like 40-50c.

I later decided to buy the Hyper 212 Evo and noticed good temps in bios 37-40c but when gaming using HWMonitor it showed around the same temps for my cpu with the max being 90c.

I am worried that my cpu is overheating but i haven't noticed any shutdowns under load, could it be that hwmonitor isn't reading the temps correctly?

I have tried using different programs to check temperature, but everything except my cpu temp would show up.

That would be excellent. Are you sure that was under a heavy load? Try it with prime95 or Intel Burn Test.
