  1. i have this temperature reading and wanted to know what that 82 degrees was referring to. just for your information, it was reading that same 82 prior to a power supply upgrade and a case upgrade. i had a dell case with a 300W PSU. replaced with rosewill 530W PSU and Antec VSK 2000 case with 2 120 fans in the front and 1 120 in the back. i am guessing it is a "non-reading". just wanted to confirm.

    That is most likely a sensor on your motherboard, which either doesn't exist, or is having some sort of conflict. There is not way you could maintain the rest of those temps with something coming back that hot.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    here is a screen from CPUID website, these are what those are designed to be, however not all boards have these sensors, and CPUID doesn't always work with them, or it gets a false reading. what ATK said, if you were running that hot, you would be having problems.
