I've recently purchased a new machine, and decided it was time to start seeing what it could do.
I downloaded and installed SpeedFan to see how everything was running before fiddling, for obvious reasons.
Imagine my surprise when I started it up and told me my CPU was running at ~125C, meanwhile all 4 cores report ~40C. A quick reboot, and look in the BIOS suggested that the CPU was running at ~40C/115F.
My gut feeling is that this is a faulty sensor, is there a simple way to confirm this? Should I be concerned?
