I've just finished my new build and it's been running like a champ, have installed all drivers and windows update and thought everything was fine.

I downloaded Open hardware monitor like some on here recommend and i noticed one very concerning temp reading. Please see attached pic and helped me out (have side by side w/ asus ai suite which seems to think everything is fine).

From what i gather this Novuton NCT6776F is some kind of sensor? but what is with the 90+C temp? :o 

All i can think of is maybe i got some thermal paste somewhere bad?

asus p8z68 LX
i5 2500k
hyper 212+
Crucial M4 128g
8g gskill 1333 ram
ocz 600w psu

Edit: Now with pic

Get that program and see if it give similar readings, if so, then try to reseat your CPU heatsink and fan and remember to apply only a pea sized amount of thermal paste and make sure all parts of the top of the CPU is covered
