High Temperature Reading

I just finished my build and when I run HWMonitor to check Voltage and Temperatures I get a high temperature reading coming from somewhere on the mobo.

This is a coy of a portion of the log:

Hardware Monitors

Hardware monitor ITE IT87
Voltage 0 1.15 Volts [0x48] (CPU VCORE)
Voltage 2 3.26 Volts [0xCC] (+3.3V)
Voltage 3 4.97 Volts [0xB9] (+5V)
Voltage 4 12.03 Volts [0xBC] (+12V)
Voltage 5 -11.97 Volts [0xBB] (-12V)
Voltage 6 -8.77 Volts [0x89] (-5V)
Voltage 7 5.00 Volts [0xBA] (+5V VCCH)
Voltage 8 3.22 Volts [0xC9] (VBAT)
Temperature 0 31°C (87°F) [0x1F] (TMPIN0)
Temperature 1 32°C (89°F) [0x20] (TMPIN1)
Temperature 2 124°C (255°F) [0x7C] (TMPIN2)
Fan 0 1555 RPM [0x1B2] (FANIN0)
Fan 3 173 RPM [0xF41] (FANIN3)

The temperature 2 reading shows 124 C. This seems way to high. Can anyone tell me where this temperature reading is from?

Mobo - Asrock X58 Extreme
CPU - Core I7 920
GPU - GTX 260
PSU - Corsair HX1000W
RAM - 3x2 GB OCZ PC3 12800

Thanks for the help!

  1. I think its your PSU. I downloaded it and checked my PSU temperature with a different program. Then started HW monitor and (TMPIN2) was at the same temperature reading as the other program. No other piece of hardware was at that temperature. Whats a normal PSU temperature? I have a 650W, and I got highest temperature of 87 Celsius.
  2. What was the other program you used?
  3. From research on the web the ITE IT87 monitors hardware on the mobo. I don't think it monitors the PSU.

    Sorry took me so long to reply. The other program is PC Wizard. I got it via www.download.com or the direct link below.
