lm-sensors is reporting weird temps for me:

temp3. How can I know what
temp3 is, and why it is so high? The system is really stable (which I guess it wouldn't be at those temps). Also, note the really decent core temps, which suggest a healthy system as well.
My guess is that the readout is wrong. On another computer it reported temperatures below 0 degrees centigrade, which was not possible, considering the environment temperature of ~22-24.
Is this some known bug/issue? Should I try some Windows programs (like CPU-Z) and see they give similar results?
