Default CPUTIN and Core1/2?

What's up with the CPUTIN getting up to 68c (which I am most definitely NOT comfortable with) and the Core only getting up to around 51c max?

I thought CPUTIN was CPU Temperature Information. How can the CPU be 68c and the core be 51c? My guess would be a bad thermal diode somewhere, but I don't know.

I am pushing this little Athlon II x2 240 as far as I possibly can on this system, and then assuming it doesn't pop and fizzle out, I'll give the system to my nephew for his birthday. I'm just trying to figure out its quirks, because it's kind of interesting.

Any information is appreciated. And I don't really care at this point anyway. 3.7ghz is nice for a $50 chip, and I was just looking for an excuse to buy a new chip anyway. I kind of secretly hope it dies :P
