I just built a PC using the Crosshair VII and the Ryzen 2700x and some temp programs seem to be reporting temps way higher than it actually is. When I open the BIOS I am getting normal idle temps (35-38C) and the Ryzen Master program is reporting the same temps. However, some programs are reporting temps that seem like Fahrenheit rather than Celsius. Some of the programs reporting incorrectly are reporting seemingly random temps. One is reporting 85 C and then I switch to another program and it's all of a sudden at 114 C. I have reseated the cooler (kraken x62) and the CPU. I cleaned both contact surfaces thoroughly and applied the normal pea sized amount of thermal compound. Everything is seated correctly and the motherboard is reading the correct temps but the programs are reporting different things. I've never had this happen with other PC's I've built. The PC is also emergency shutting down while idle. I also felt the parts while on and nothing was even slightly hot much less 100 degrees Celsius. Any help would be appreciated.
