MSI 990fx zambezi 8 core

I have tried cpuid-z, coretemp, and amd overdrive. All of these programs say that each core temp ( 8 cores) runs around 15-17 degrees celciu per core. Which doesnt really make since given that room temp is about 5-10 degrees higher. When I bootup in bios it normally shows anywhere from 50-60 degrees CPU temp. Is this normal or do I have a faulty motherboard/ processor.

it will be fine its typical for different tools to sometimes read things incorrectly

the bios would be closer to correct and its that high because it cant idle too well in the bios

those temps are fine for a bios idle temp

The temperature was high. Bought an H100 cooler and got the processor down to normal. MSI utilities worked correctly.
