What version of CPU-Z were you running? You could try CoreTemp, RealTemp, or Everest Home Edition if HWMonitor doesn't work.

It's the winbond chip where the compatibility issue comes in play. There are some many different models and some software only works with certain models. Older versions of MBM5 would let you select the version off a list in the program. If your chip was one on the list it work relatively ok. But if it wasn't on the list you got some funky reading you just knew were way off base.
ASUS has several board monitoring programs. There should be one on the mother board cd that came with the board.

Don't know if it's helpful but I use SpeedFan (free). I always know when to clean the crap off the fan.
