shouldn't you be happy for core temp reading your cpu as a core i7? ;) 
may be you need to update your monitoring programs.

Also is your motherboard BIOS updated to a version which supports Bulldozer FX CPU's?

Not exactly, well if you think about it, thew 8120 does not suck beacasue it's acually better then the i7 when it comes to integer stuff but it's not exactly like a 8 core sandy bridge.
