    i5 6400 Skylake reporting low temperatures

    Hello, I builded a pc a not so long time ago, and I noticed the CPU temperatues are quite low between 5 - 12 degrees.

    When I opened a game (Dirt 3) the temperatures jumped up to around 15 degrees, but is it possible that the cpu heat sensor is defect? I mean it is good to have good temps but aren't these temps a bit too low? Or is this normal and nothing to be concerned about?

    Thanks in advance

    Have you tried other applications to monitor the temperatures to see if it is software-related or sensor-related?
