Oh yea, that is kind of odd, unless you have the room cooled to below 50F... But other than that, the temp readings look alright.

Try downloading Everest Home edition and see what it reports your temps as, also you can check in the BIOS and see what it reports as well. I used to recommend SpeedFan but I've found that it does report things a bit weird, so I don't use it anymore...

That nVidia program that comes with your motherboard should always be the right one to consider as it has all the specific thermal diodes, thus getting more accurate information.

Having a 680i mobo myself, I must warn you to stay away from nTune as much as possible. It is one of the worst pieces of software I have ever come across. You can destroy your mobo, graphics card, and pretty much your whole computer by using it, literally.

Anyways, Core Temp is probably the best CPU temp monitoring program. It uses a sensor located inside the processor itself, instead of relying on external mobo sensors like most other apps do.
