All other temps are just as expected, only one of them are unsually high. I don't use multiple monitors, only SpeedFan, but when I saw the temp reading, I had to try out multiple ones, and they were all giving me sketchy readings of one particular high temp.
alyoshka, I did touch a few of the spots mentioned (heatsinks on the mobo and the mosfets), and they were not hot. I didn't know speedfan was bad : / will uninstall it now.
btw, I did a restart and Speccy showed a high mobo temp but lowered to normal after playing Crysis 2.
[edit: i'm not so sure AI Suite II is reliable since it's reporting cpu temp as 6°C]
