It's quite good if you have a bag of marshmallows and a stick.

125°C is about the limit of any silicon-based semiconductor device (it's
about the top end that an Si thermometer can do). Most consumer
computational devices will be rated considerably lower than this. Your CPU
would be around 85°C.

If the system is stable, I would strongly suspect a faulty reading rather
than temperatures that high.

Given that your motherboard isn't supported in MBM5:

Hmm, actually, it looks like it is, must be new.

Anyway, given that there is no sensor3 supported on your motherboard, that
pretty much confirms the faulty reading argument.

My advice? Prevent the reading of that "sensor" from sounding the alarm.

On the classic A7N8X (Deluxe) you do have 3 readings: Diode, Socket and
Case/Motherboard.

P.S. Is anybody else aware that google can do this:

Give it a play, it's knows quite a few units.

Yea..
Some of the last few to be out there..
the Dev of MBM has called it quits.. so no more new stuff

What a shame, but I can understand why... he's probably put under a lot of
pressure to support each and every new board, even if it's only a case of
working out which sensor chip it is and which sensors are where... the
biggest problem would be the huge array of different sensor chips.

Would it be ideal to have the manufacturers create their monitoring
software to include with their motherboards and video cards?

Lots of them do.

The problem is that they're non-standard and often of poor quality.
