Default where to place CPU temp probe?

I had my CPU temp probe between my waterblock and the CPU, but it was registerring alarm temps even at initial startup, = 65*c... I checked the PC probe when it decided to run, and that said a normal 42*c at initial startup (idle)...

Why are you using a temp probe? What's wrong with the sensors on the chip?
