So i have been playing around with my new MSI gtx 970 gaming.. overclocking and such.. I have various monitoring programs open GPU-z, HWinfo, precision x etc.. and I noticed something odd... an odd temp reading on one of my mainboard sensors..

note that is the MAX reading.. in celsius its about 190degrees.. is this even possible without melting something? could it just be a bad reading? faulty sensor? I've never noticed it this high before... and nothing else even gets close to that temp

I'm going to try.... I'm not sure exactly when it happened... The only intensive thing I've done today is run [email protected] and convert and burn a couple DVD s.... So I will maybe try to run [email protected] again and monitor with something else... Any suggestions? the only monitoring program I have that covers All sensors is hwi... Maybe cpuid?

ok so wasn't able to recreate exact temps.. but I ran [email protected] at full for 15min.. and then converted a movie... ended up with CPUIDHWM reporting 190F for a split second.. and HWiNFO reporting 375F for a split second... I'm wondering if when I am swtiching between windows and opening/minimizing things... it seems to throw off the sensor..

plus.. I noticed the last time I took my whole rig apart to clean and such.. my northbridge heatsink was a bit loose on one side.. would this cause something like that? I'm still curious if my components are reaching 200 or 300 close to 400 degrees... I guess without a heat imaging gun or laser thermometer.. I wont be able to know for sure..
