I have a TUF GAMING B550M-PLUS with a Ryzen 7 3700x and an rtx 2070 (no overclocking).
There is this weird temperature in HW-Monitor that always has a really high value (around 85-90 degrees celsius).
Initially I thought it's just a faulty sensor but the temperature keeps changing, so can it still be a faulty sensor if the temperature doesn't stay the same all the time?
And I decided to check that temperature right after booting up my PC, and it was already at 92 degrees celsius which makes no sense. If it was a VRM then surely it wouldn't go up to 92 celsius instantly???
Here is a screenshot with the HW-Monitor app. The temperature sensor is named TMPIN4:

You need to ditch HWmonitor first of all. Especially in cases where erroneous readings (Which is VERY common with HWmonitor, Open hardware monitor, and a few others) might be in play.

Download HWinfo, install it, open it, choose the "Sensors only" option, unselect the "summary" option, click ok.

Scroll through and check the sensors to see if the same information, with the same name, is being displayed.

I installed HWinfo and it still says that high number, this time it's called "Temp2"
