Hello, lately i'm getting confusing reports from openhardware monitor. Some help from someone whom knows what they're talking about would be helpful. I'm not sure if i'm overheating or what because tempatures #3 and #6 are outragous and everything else seems normal. Maybe i need to reapply some thermal paste to the processor? Some advice would be much appreciated

no those temps are bogus motherboard (?) readings.
Are you certain? Because during gaming (fallout 4 lately) my computer has been randomly turning off as if I unplugged the power.

I suggest you try another temp monitoring program:

You were 100% right, other programs don't display the same tempatures, that rules out overheating atleast for my random restarts. Thank you for your help xpcman
