I have the latest BIOS version available for my board... and I'm really limited to using only that BIOS version since it's the only BIOS version which supports AM3 cpu's

You are running in a danger zone though as even my motherboard cpu temp was reading 50c or below. I believe your case is similar to mine but I would beware until I found out for sure the cpu cores are correct. What is your cooling?
wait your the one with the 1.88 cpu volts! Thats scaring me. Uhm are you overclocked any? 55 is high even for stock cooling
My cooler is a Scythe Shuriken Rev B with Artic Silver 3 thermal paste and it sits directly next to a Palit Sonic HD4870 (Factory OC'ed). I have 2 exhaust fans and 1 front intake fan. My case is a small form factor Thermaltake LANBox Lite case... which explains the heat issue...
I have a mild overclock of 16x200= 3.2Ghz and I didn't notice any temperature difference with this overclock than on stock speeds.
The voltage issue has been resolved. It was/is an incorrect reading from CPU-Z/HWMonitor. AMD Overdrive and CoreTemp both report 1.325V
