So I just put together my computer made of a selection of newegg parts, everything seems to be running fine, except ...when I look in any sort of sensor reading software it says my power/aux is at 80 to 85Â°C. I'm not sure what the problem is here.
For starters it's this
600W PSU (the only remark I find relevant in anyone's cons is that the fan points downwards).
The fan inside is working, the PSU doesn't feel hot to the touch anywhere inside (nowhere near 80Â°C, in any case. Even if the sensor is at the top of the PSU the top of the case doesn't even feel warm. Out of the settings Low/Auto/High I have it set on high right now (was on Auto, high doesn't lower the temp, anyway).
It can't be bleed-off heat, since the processor's heat sensor is at 35 and the motherboard is at 30. The graphics card is at 45-55, and it's nowhere near the PSU.
So I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me with this. Either determining if the sensor is faulty (...maybe it only reports in Fahrenheit or something?), or if some component in the middle is legitimately at 80 degrees. It seems to run fine, but I don't want to damage it and I'd like to figure out what the problem is here.
Anyone have any suggestions or possibly any other sensor reading programs I could try? I've tried speedfan , pcwizard and CPU hardware monitor and they all seem to be consistent with their high temperature reading.
