Is HW monitor working properly?

I'm not doing much got 5-6 internet tabs open and spotify (music streaming) and steam and antivirus and this and that, these temps seem very low (stock cooler) is there an error with my hw monitor or is this ok?

  1. seems low, my 2550k idles at 28-32c with corsair h100. you can try updating your bios for more accurate temps readings
  2. These temps seem right for an ambient temperature of 10-12° with EIST enabled.

    They've now dropped to 15 20 19 13 20
    my thermostat in my house is keeping the temperature to a minimum of 20c
    = why I was confused and wondering if there was a fault!
  4. You can't have lower than ambient temps on air. Look in your bios and see what it says.
