I have an ASUS PRIME H270M-PLUS motherboard that seems to be registering a temperature of nearly 120 degrees celsius. I have seen this on older Dell motherboards, and the actual chipsets were perfectly cool.

This is something that has changed recently, as I use these programs periodically and the motherboard is usually anywhere between 20-40 degrees. Is it likely to be a faulty sensor somewhere?

Thanks

For some reason the screenshots won't load, so these links should help!

It's strange because up until recently the temperature appeared to be correct. Also today it is now reading 31 degrees celsius. Very strange.
