My SOYO SY-K7VMP2 motherboard's bios PC Health Status has two different CPU temperature read outs. My processor is an AMD Athlon 2400+. The first reading is "CPU Temp" which is around 50C unloaded. The other is "CPU Temp on Die" which runs around the mid 70'sC. This motherboard has an ABR, antiburn regulator with a default cutoff temp of 85C. The MB manual indicates the AMD Athlon 2400 and 2600 had issues with the ABR and suggested disabling it which I did because on bootup it would sometimes apparently reach that temp and shutdown. With all that being said, how is "CPU Temp on Die" related to CPU temp and should I be concerned about that die temp approaching 90C which I believe is getting close to overheating problems.
I do have very good AMD approved heatsink and properly applied thermal paste.

Sounds like your m/b has sensor problems which many m/b's not just SOYO has. There are some good articles in the guides section on temps.' ">
