Asus puts a little 'modifier' in there bios.
The probe is reading one temperature, and Asus "bumps" it up to give an indication of the actual processor core.
Personally, I think it's stupid. I don't want someone interpreting crap for me; I'd rather have the raw data, and interpret it myself.
They have to provide tech support. And that costs cash. So, you want that probe reading as high as anything could possibly even be.
