Default Surely this aint right?

Hey guys
I have recently bought a new case (Thermaltake Soprano), it came with a 430W psu. My last case had a no name brand 350W psu.
Now I use Sandra Software to measure the temps on my cpu etc, it keeps saying that my Power/ Aux Temperature is 83 - 89C!!! That can't be right can it?!
The temperature has kept the same from both cases and both power supplies, no matter what, the sensor reads a very high temperature.

The cpu temp is acceptable as it is overclocked a fair bit and is soon going to be treated with some water cooling.

Could the sensor be stuffed up or what?

Thanks.

yup, it's not uncommon
f it really were at 80 or so degrees, the PSU would probabbly not be working right now

I know it's uncommon lol, what's a way to fix it?
Well there isn't really anything to fix except for the sensor...
