What are your load temps?? Idle Temps can be very deceptive, but those look on target. What is your ambient temp?

I doubt your ambient temps are 40-42c, unless you live in hell.
Ambient is the room temperature. What is your room temperature and what are your case temps??

bios temps are very weird, they measure your ambient temperature only if you bios dosetn read the temperature wrong. and also, the cpu reading is from the socket, which is the under side of the cpu and makes your cpu seem hotter.

you need update yoru bios if u want a correct reading.
