Hi,
My config is:-
ryzen 1700x no oc.
CM hyper 410r RGB cooler.
MSI B350 Gaming plus max motherboard.
32gb trident z @ 3200mhz
GTX 1080.
CM V750 PSU.

I recently bought the msi b450 motherboard and everything is working fine except for one of the temps on the motherboard. I am using CORSAIR LINK to monitor the temps of all my components at once. The temp 6 sensor on my motherboard is constanly showing a temperature 20 degrees higher than the temp of the CPU for example if my cpu is at 40 degrees temp 6 will show up as 60 degrees. When my cpu is rendering at max load at about 73 degrees, temp #6 shows up as 93 degrees which scares me that some component might be reaching temps in the range of 90 to 96 while my pc is rendering.. screenshots are uploaded below. All the other temps and numbers seem fine except for temp #6. How can i check if this is an error or something to be concerned about? Just to mention that i have attached 2 of the radiator high rpm fans from my previous water cooler h100i to sys fans headers 2,3 hence the high rpm values there.

It might be OK for checking on a Corsair PSU status but for system monitoring I'd get rid of Corsair Link in favor of something that actually works well. For Ryzen processors RyzenMaster works very well and so does HWInfo64. HWInfo actually shows you a ton more data about CPU, motherboard, GPU and even memory, SSD's and HD's than you'd ever imagined available.
