First of all sorry for my bad English, im from Spain

Im worried about the temp of the Cores of my new Phenom II X4 955 processor. I have read that the max temp allowed for this model is 62ºC, and some times, SpeedFan and Coretemp (the software i use to see the core temps) shows temperatures above the 62ºC when using Prime95 to stress the processor a couple of minutes, but the CPU temp never goes above 39ºC and the MB temp never goes above 44ºC. While gaming never goes above 57-58ºC but im worried because i think the Core temps are just too high. When im not using any software the temps for the Cores are 39-44ºC.

Could this be a problem with the sensors?, im not a expert in hardware or software but it results strange for me that the Cpu in the Bios shows me 39º of temp while the Cores goes above 62º.

Thxs for help
