Its just a "stuck" sensor, an issue the plauges the 45nm chips. Don't worry about it, your chips not defective. The internal sensor was only designed to read proper temps the closer to the MAX TDP it is.

The internal sensor is technically a count down to max TDP, and not a temp sensor in the traditional sense anyways. As long as it can read the higher temperatures, anything else is gravy.
