So I'm trying to overclock my CPU (AMD FX-4100)

Right now it's at 3700mhz, and I ran a stress test in Prime 95 for about 21mins to get a quick idea of stability. Prime95 didn't detect any errors, and everything seems fine with my system right now; but when I look at my temps in CPUID hardware monitor, the AUXTIN and TMPIN temps seem way too high

As you can see, the AUXTIN is at 128C and the TMPIN4 is at 84C. It's been idle for a while now and the two temps are still around the same area.

Could this be a false reading, and I'm just being paranoid? Or is there actually something to be concerned about? Also, what exactly do the different temps mean?

P.S. I'm new to overclocking. I know the basics of how to do it; but this is my first time actually trying it for myself.
