[SOLVED] Asus Maximus Hero XII temps: unsure as to what temperature #3 is?

I just put together my new rig before venturing overseas just to make sure everything works okay. I have a GPU but it currently is not installed in the rig (I also don't think it's relevant to this question). I have my cpu liquid cooled in a custom loop with a 360 radiator. My case side panel has also been off for all my tests, so it definitely has sufficient airflow. Anyhow, I downloaded HWMonitor to see how my temps were looking. According to HWMonitor, on my motherboard (Asus ROG Maximus Hero XII), Temperature #3 appears to be at 119C. I've restarted my PC and I've seen it get as high as 150C. That temperature has definitely made me feel uneasy. Does anyone know what thermal sensor that could be? I tried to look it up on the ASUS website but failed to find anything helpful. Keep in mind all these temperatures are while the computer is sitting at idle. Any help is greatly appreciated. Here is the imgur link to the HWMonitor results:

not all sensor readings are real. Some will always show wrong scores, on a previous board I had some that showed negative temps all the time.

119 is unlikely when ever other part is around 30c
temp 6 could be CPU maybe? its within realistic measures.
