Is this believable or is my core sensor messed up?

It is not out of the realm of possibility.

Have you compared the readings to other utilities?

CoreTemp or Everest?
I think the real question is how on earth can you be comfortable at 18* C.
lol....18c is almost 65F......i wear a sweatshirt or something long sleeved.

and yes I have compared and compared, and I do have a rather ridiculous amount of fans going.................................
that's intake blowing on the back of the cpu/mobo


And this is the inside.....


.......yes, that is blood. The little fan attacked me!

What does your BIOS reading state the temperature is?
heh is that blood on the inside of the side panel? I likey!
BIOS reading is purportedly with a load (approx. 70~80%?... I have never confirmed, but empirically speaking it seems to be true).

What are the Load temps that your utilities are reading?

Can you discern a trend or consistency (accounting for variation)?
when I race GTLegends Core temp reports a high of about 50-52c right now it say a high of 41c. I think the BIOS reading sounds about right if it's true that it runs the CPU at 75-80%.

the reason I really question the readings is because I am OC'd 500mHz and the voltage is up from stock 1.35 to 1.475v
The answer is that the core temp sensor is messed up on that 3700 chip.

Now that I installed my Opty 170 the Core temps are about 2 degrees higher than the CPU reading @ idle. This makes a lot more logical sense to me.
