Asus Ai Suite giving me 125 centigrade errors

I have a i7 3770k overclocked to 4.2ghz, with an h100i watercooler.

So i was just playing a match of CS:GO And i alt tabbed to check something on reddit, and this error saying: WARNING CPU 125 Centigrade popped up on the bottom right. I instantly closed down my CS:GO and checked the temp on corsairLink. It said my cpu was 45 degrees celsius. Normally my CPU temp is about 70 degrees while playing games, wich has been like this for the past 3 years and never gave me trouble. some time ago i rendered something, and my cpu got up to 85 degrees!! but the 125c warning i just got really scared me thats why im askin if i should worry here.

Does AI Suite interfere with CorsairLink or something?

In the past few months i also get some weird voltage errors from AI Suite. I checked the voltages and it showed this: https://gyazo.com/9662ca6b7720f9ac4ec23a10770f7244

Does my AI suite just give false warnings or do i have to start worrying? I'm not really familiar with all of this aswell.

Thanks in advance.

    I'm not as good a PSU guy as some others here; some thoughts I have:

    VCore: Looks low, but could be due to the CPU being in a temporary low power state
    +3.3: Seems a bit low, though I believe still within spec. What concerns me is I'd expect voltage loss at load, not at idle, and the low VCore indicates your idling at the time of the screenshot.

    From a tech perspective, 127 is the maximum value of an 8-bit signed integer value, which is what Intel/AMD use on their temp sensors, so it's possible the temp sensor failed high (possibly temporarily) resulting in a 127C reading. I doubt the CPU got even remotely that hot.

    You'll need one of the experts to chime in on the voltage values, but I think the 125C warning was just a bad temp sensor reading.

    Yeah the PSU right now is a MS-Tech 850 watt, and i've heard ALOT of bad stuff about it. im buying a new corsair PSU soon. The voltage screenshot was taken right after i booted my pc, almost nothing was running at that time.
  3. I'd be shocked if the 3.3 rail was that far off nominal voltage with nothing going on; that worries me a bit.

    And yeah, with power supplies, stick with reputable brands.
  4. It just gave me a : WARNING CPU 104 centigrade warning again, i started ai suite, and it said the cpu was 35 degrees celcius. I think it just sometimes gives false temperatures because it goes up for like a second or something
  5. Question: What's reporting the high temperatures? Because Windows certainly doesn't have anything built in...

    Might want to run a malware scan.

    AI suite is giving me the warnings, Just like they give me the voltage errors.
