Is there some reason to believe the temperature readings would not be correct? My CPU core temperatures never go above 55 degrees C according to HWMonitor, and I can hear the hum of the fans kicking in to alert me if there is a problem. Is there some reason to believe the board and/or CPU temperatures are actually hotter than the readings HWMonitor shows?
    In my case HWmonitor is completely bugged, shows temps 15°C higher than HWinfo64 if not 20.
    Also still in my case the temperature reading issues I have are due to a difference in TjMax between the 99XX and the 79XX series of chip.
    As you are running a 9980XE and not a 7980XE you are fine, but the microcode that comes with the bios 504 sets a TjMax of 110°C for my 7980XE instead of 105°C and for a reason I don't really get this messes with with temperatures reported by the cores.

    Have a look here :
    and here

    The later being with the modded bios

    I hope this clarifies =)
