121 degrees Celsius = 249.8 degrees Fahrenheit

If there was anything in your computer that was that hot you would know it very quickly. It would probably start smoking and burn.

121 degrees Fahrenheit = 49.4 degrees Celsius

Now if you are actually reading the Fahrenheit # then that sounds way more reasonable....

It's just a phony sensor that is probably misread because there are plenty of people who have that at 120+ degrees, including me. And believe me, nothing in your pc is that hot.
