OK this is how we all check it out stick out your tongue and touch the HS watch out for the fans cause they hurt.
No really it does sound like a bad probe. you can always adjust the temp within MBM, or try replacing the probe call up ABIT. and just as a precaution you DID plug in the fans on the HS right. touch it just be carefull you should be able to without hurting your self
Can some one stop those voices in my head telling me to Overclock my computer!!!
I had the same problem on my bf6 with MBM. It said my temps were at aroun 60C with a watercooled peltier, I could touch the back of the processor through 2 layers of insulation and it would be cold. So I knew it wasn't right. All I did was switch the probe type (in the software) to p2 thermal diode. If you can, see if that works.
If it ain't broke, break it!

"I linked to your site from a message on Hardware Central and I'm sure this is what is up with my Abit BF6 boards temp readings. After replacing my old TMC board with the Abit I have seen Bios reported CPU temp go from 38C max with the TMC to 55C Max with the Abit without any other changes to the system at all. I'd appreciate your views on this if you've got a moment.
One last thing what do you think of the Winbond Hardware Doctor 2 monitor software(supplied with the BF6)?. It supplies all the information you need in a clear a logical way but it is so "User Unfriendly!" Firstly I can't make it appear in the task bar minimised on boot up, If I put it in the start up folder it opens on boot up, annoying!!. Even worse there is no minimise button so you click the close to minimise it to the task bar, but you can't Left click the icon to restore it, the program crashes. So you have to Right click it and then select restore!! WHY? when everything else is Left click! Extremely annoying"
