overclock temp help! insane temps!

hi guys i have 3 scenarios

picture 1 https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/t1/1795608_3972331842142_838724988_n.jpg

AMD Stability test. no problems with stability never had an error 100% usage
coretemp says temp is 39C
AMD overdrive says 30.8C

Prime 95 test. didnt have an error

coretemp 41C
hwmonitor 41C
amd overdrive 28.6

picture 3 this is insane https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/t1/1507811_3972332042147_387383428_n.jpg

still no errors but further tests maybe test 5

amd overdrive 185C
coretemp 255C
hwmonitor 206C

and i also have an idle photo but didnt upload it

AMD 53.9C
Coretemp 16C
Hwmonitor 16C

guys do you think my temps are credible? is it possible to go as high as 255 and not burn the chip and not create errors? i think when i have those insane temps, it lasted 5-10 mins before i got
scared and stopped prime95.

im also running the amd stability test right now

amd overdrive 29C
hwmonitor 41C
coretemp 41C

    the temperature sensor is faulty or your running hot enough to confuse it. those temps are obviously not possibly. you'd be melting things. try checking the motherboard sensor
