Default Need a specific CPU temp monitor program?

So I downloaded a few CPU temp monitor programs (like speedfan) and all of them said my CPU temp is 86C. I know it is not 86C because I felt the heat sync and left my computer off for a few hours and look at the program and still said 86C. In my BIOS its says the normal temp (35C-40C) so idk if it a software problem or I need a program for my exact mobo. What do you guys think?

BTW I have a BIOSTAR mobo.

ya thats majorly wrong, i thought maybe it could be a heatsink problem but then i was like eh 86 would melt that processor, SO i would recommend lavalys everest, just search google for everest home, and you'll find it, it works great shows every piece of information you'll ever need to know about your pc
