Weird temperature

Greetings,
I just got my new hardware parts and assembled the rig:
msi p67 c45 mobo
2500k with default cooler from the box
2x4gb ram
old sata 320gb WDC hdd
old 8800gts 320mb card
old FPS BlueStorm || 500W psu

There seem to be a problem with CPU temperature (or voltage too maybe)...
HardwareMonitor and SpeedFan showed 104C in TMPIN1/TEMP2 after I tried a game for a few mins (metro2033)

Googling led me to believe this is the CPU temperature.. although i don't quite get it ...there are separate CPU1-CPU4 temperatures in hardware monitor, speedfan and msi's control center and they all show reasonable temperatures -> 32-33C in idle, and some ~43 on load. Bios shows a single, different number in CPU temperature: 53-57C....

Also checked the voltages:
+12V only has 8.01V in hardware monitor, but 10.65V in speedfan...curious

I am not even sure i connected everything properly....
In the main 24pin mobo power slot i've inserted my psu's 20(19?!)pin cable in the bottom area ...and connected another 4pin power cable in the upper 4pin area.

In the upper 4pin area of the 8pin 12V slot i've inserted a separate 4pin power cable (why are there 8pins, am i missing something?)

Another suspect is the thermal paste .. it was already applied on the stock cooler. I've taken it off and checked -> there's only like 50% of the area covered ...

Anyone got any ideas what might be the case? (hwmonitor+speedfan lying i hope :) )

104c lol. speedfan shows errors alot on those 2 sensors. Download coretemp and tell me what your temps are.

1-4 cores show the same as mentioned ... ~34-35 .. some "Tj. Max" shows 98C

Checked in BIOS again .. 12V -> 11.982 or so .. as well as other stuff .. ~42 system temp .. ~55 CPU temp ...

showed 127C today after playing crysis2 -_- ... bugs me

1: Speedtemp shows a LOT of wierd temps sometimes, especially if a sensor doesn't exist.

2: +-127C is a common value for sensors, as it represents every bit being either set or not set for a 16-bit signed integer value. This typically represents a dead/missing sensor, and thus a bad reading.

You mean speed-fan right? lol

nvm, not my typo :)  ("you are not allowed to edit this message" o_o)

Actually, now that i think about it .. why do both speedfan and hardware monitor show the same number then ? (both 104c or 113c for example ... except for when speedfan shows 127C .. which seem to be the maximum ..hardware monitor doesn't show it at all <_<
