Hmm... That's not very good, because the temperature is an impossibility. You see, unless you got some extreme cooling solution, your cooling solution would heat the processor up to room temperature if the processor was cooler than the room. This means the temperature reading is wrong. It is not unusual for the temperature to be off by a certain amount because it is not correctly calibrated, but this is usually in a +-10 įC range.
There are a couple of possibilities. The calibration could be way of. The software interpreting the reading could have gotten it wrong. The temperature diode or winbound chip might be damaged.
Depending on the reason it might be a problem because it would mess with the thermal fan control.
