Default SpeedFan Readings Wrong?

Here is a screen shot of SpeedFan on my computer....

I know for a fact that the HDD is not that hot, it has a fan blowing right on it and I even felt it. It is a SATA HDD, I have it hooked up with a regular 4pin connector and the cable that came with it from Western Digital, not with a SATA power cable and SATA data cable.

Also, none of the fans I have installed are showing up because the cables aren't long enough to hook them to the mobo incase anyone was wondering. I know one of the fan speeds is the chipset fan and one is the cpu fan, but what could the other one be?

Anyone else have problems with SpeedFan?

AMD Athlon Mobile TK-55 Dual Core 1.8 GHz
2GB DDR2 Memory
Windows XP Home Edition
