I have a i5 2500 @3.3GHz on Turbo mode (3.7GHz) which is enabled in my BIOS, it says the temperature of the CPU is 50 Degrees which is very high when I havent even booted the PC?
I have applied Artic MX-2 Thermal paste, and I have a stock intel cooler.
My Motherboard temperature is 28 degrees in BIOS

However, using Core Temp, I can see my CPU Temp is at 40 degree for all cores, is this bad or good? Should I reapply my thermal paste?
