AMD A10 5800k: High temp. readings in Bios

I recently put my first (budget) gaming PC together. After checking if everything was installed correctly, I fired it up right away. When i got to the bios i noticed the temp of my apu was around 40c (and even up to 50c on a hot day on idle). I checked online to see if this was normal and found some reasons like the temperature in my room was too high or that fm2 mother boards have issues with reading the proper temperature of the cpu in the bios. My room temperature does usually reach around nearly 80f (I have no ac and I currently live in California). I even bought an aftermarket air cooler to help cope with the high temp of my room. I was just wondering if those are the only two factors that are effecting the cpu temperature right now and not the fact that there is something wrong with any of my components.

Thank you for your help!

    50 degrees in UEFI bios is normal for that CPU, and BIOS temperatures are among the more accurate readings for FM2 processors. Lots of windows programs have difficulty :D
