AMD CPU temperatures normal?

I have an AMD FX-8350 CPU which I just installed Corsair H55 liquid cooling system on.
Using Core Temp 1.9 RC6 it reads CPU temps around 15 C with an ambient temp of 21 C.
That seems pretty much impossible to me, or?
I'm currently running Prime95 and CPU seems stable at 42 C.
I have a Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 chassis with 1 blowout fan at the back, 2 front HDD fans and mounted the CPU radiator at designated "radiator mount" behind the 2 front fans (Radiator+fan --> HDD's --> 2 front fans)

Are these somewhat normal temperatures?

    Temperatures are fine. AMD CPUs and motherboards are notoriously inaccurate below 40C.

    The max temp for the CPU is 62C on the cores and 70C on the socket. A 42C load temp is very nice, you have lots of overclocking headroom there.
  2. Great =) CPU temp dropped 12 C from stock cooler, Forgot to mention I changed chassis at the same time i changed the cooler, so went from 5 to 3 chassis fans.
