cpu insane temp! need help asap

hi guys i have 3 scenarios

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

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

picture 2 https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/...

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/...

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

More about cpu insane temp asap
  1. none of the screenshots work, but 200+C definitely wasn't real, at those temperatures the cpu would burn a whole in the socket.

    and right now coretemp has it 16C and amd overdrive has it for 50C both same time and while running amd overdrive stability test

    is the problem on the software or in my mobo temp sensor?
  3. try to start prime and open the case and check manually how hot the cpu heatsink is and if the fan is spinning.
    check that the cooler is properly seated. (try to tilt it, see how hard / easy it moves)
  4. if the cpu is 200C+ you couldn't touch that heatsink and if it's properly seated there's no way it would reach 80+ even if there's no thermal paste at all
  5. wouldnt a 200C+ melt my motherboad?

    tried touching it when it was reading 185. my heatsink isnt hot at all.
  7. which means either the heatsink it's thoroughly placed on the cpu - you can check by trying to tilt it as i said, if it's seated ok it will move only a little bit - power off before trying!

    or the readings are wrong - either sensor or program used for reading but since all seem to be wrong... probably sensor.
