Ok so guys i have a ASUS H81M-k mobo that i bought recently with my pc and when i went to check the temps of my other components(hdd,cpu,gpu) it showed perfectly normal temps(40-50C) but when i went to check my mobo's temp it showed a disgusting reading of about 119C , after research i have seen many people have glitches and bugs when running programs to check the temps but i have run 3 programs to check,HW monitor,Speccy,and speedfan and all of them seem to have the same temps of around 119C , now i know this is not possible to run at these temps without it screwing all of my components and burning the living bleep out of my pc but i want to know what exact problem it might be ,a faulty sensor, a haswell component bug ?? 

also it has been a week since i checked and the reading is the same , the pc runs fine though

I think it is fairly safe to bet on a faulty sensor or similar.

 

All your other temperatures are entirely nominal for a laptop. 119C is more than the boiling point of water and if it were that hot you would burn your hands typing and the casing would be starting to melt.

 

The components on a motherboard that generate almost all the heat are the CPU chip and the graphics chip, and the temperature falls off as you move away from these chips on the mobo, so a mobo should never show a higher temperature than either of these chips.

Definitely a faulty reading, at 119C, your mobo would be melting *not literally*. It's safe to say you're fine.

Sorry - I even looked at your Speccy report. I have no idea how I got the impression of 'laptop' !  Blame it on my advancing years.
