I5 3570k query about temperature on HW monitor

My PC specs

z77ma g45
i5 3570k 4.2 ghz
8 gb ddr 3 crossair vengeance
660 ti 2 gb
Cooler master extreme power duo

My cpu temperature seem to be fine but I am seeing tmpin0,tmpin1 and tmpin2 temps which are just crazy. Please tell me what do they mean.

ardware monitor Fintek F718xx
Voltage 0 3.36 Volts [0xD2] (+3.3V)
Voltage 1 1.26 Volts [0x9D] (CPU VCORE)
Voltage 2 0.06 Volts [0x4] (VIN2)
Voltage 3 1.43 Volts [0x7A] (VIN3)
Voltage 4 5.68 Volts [0x87] (+5V)
Voltage 5 8.18 Volts [0x5D] (+12V)
Voltage 6 2.11 Volts [0x84] (VIN6)
Voltage 7 3.38 Volts [0xD3] (VSB3V)
Voltage 8 3.20 Volts [0xC8] (VBAT)
Temperature 0 84°C (183°F) [0x54] (TMPIN0)
Temperature 1 102°C (215°F) [0x66] (TMPIN1)
Temperature 2 45°C (113°F) [0x2D] (TMPIN2)
Fan 0 1966 RPM [0x2FB] (FANIN0)
Fan 2 783 RPM [0x77B] (FANIN2)
Fan PWM 0 100 pc [0xFF] (CPU)
Fan PWM 1 65 pc [0xA6] (System Fan 1)
Fan PWM 2 65 pc [0xA6] (System Fan 2)
Register space LPC, base address = 0x0290

The TMP 1 seems to be stuck on 102, I dont know what the hell that is and tmp 2 seems to be stuck on 84. Is that a problem with harware monitor software or my computer.

  1. Best answer
    Assuming the readings are accurate (which they might not be), my guesses would be that TMP0/1 might be from the VRM circuitry. Power semiconductors are often rated for 150-200C operating temperatures so 100C there is not a problem.

    How do I lower voltage in msi z77 ma g45. The only option I see is voltage offset which gives me an option to only increase the voltage +0.02. +.03.+.04. I am confused how to lower the voltage on this board. can't find anything on Google.

  4. If you want to lower voltage, you would need to use a negative offset. If your list only shows positive offsets and there is no option to switch to negative offsets, then all you can do is leave it to 0.
