    This looks very wierd to me.
    Is it REALLY that hot??
    Cause when I put my finger on the fan/coolingrid its cold as ice..

    So... should I just dont care about this error or what could be wrong?

    Hope any of you can help me.

    Thanks.

    The readings are most definitely wrong.

    Might want to try some other program to check your temps, or check if the correct motherboard (and version) is set in the program. If there is no exact motherboard selectable, then try another program, or update the motherboard list if possible.

    If there is no problem with the computer itself, and you're checking the temps just for fun, you shouldn't have anything to worry about right now. Might want to play a game or something, and do that finger test again in the middle of playing. Should only be kinda warm. If you need to retract your finger, then its probably too hot. However, take this advice as a general guideline, nothing beats an accurate temp reading. Not to mention be careful while you're in there, static will kill your comp, and fans can bruise your finger :D

    Program?

    Thanks for the answer.
    Do you have a link for some programs that can measure the heat of my cpu?

    Thanks again.

    The info looks good... disregard the "Power/Aux Temperature : 124.5 °C" your motherboard doesn't support this measurement
