    At stock speeds and on a stock cooler the Phenom II X4 generally runs about 40-45c with cool & quiet on. Typically at 100% load should be around 55-70c

    Edit:
    Probably yes, because 19c on a Phenom II X4 is not possible on air.

    Phenoms run VERY cool actually. Even Overclocked

    My Phenom II x4 925 will idle around 70 (21.1c) degrees Fahrenheit. With a 20% overclock. If its cool in my house (60ish). I run on a stock FAN/heatsink.
    My girlfriends Phenom II x3 720 idles around 60 (15.5c-No overclock 2.8ghz) degrees Fahrenheit. Using ---ARCTIC COOLING ACALP64 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler.


    To answer your question... the sensors are messed up or the motherboard is reading incorrectly. Dont worry about it. Just make sure the temps that are reading correctly dont go over 70c ish...

    The CPU should not get that hot unless your running Hardcore benchmarks or rendering 3d media. exapmle..3dstudio max, maya, lightwave, 3dmark 11, Intel Burn-in test, etc etc...

    The 910e(assuming he forgot the 'e') is a 2.6GHz 65W energy-efficient model that Legit Reviews found ran at 22c Idle.
    Don't know if it's relevant, but there it is.

    I've got an Athlon II X4 620. Basically the same as a Phenom II X4 but with the L3 cache removed. My idle is about 40-45c. Underload it never goes above 70c. This is with a 3.5GHz OC. Heatsink is a Sonic Tower Rev 2 with 120mm Akasa attached.
