    Wait, then I guess I'll skip the ClearCMOS/CLRTC procedure and do the CPU reset only as I don't want to reset/resintall my OS. And that CPU reset wouldn't do anything such like, it's safe to do? Could't find any info on 'CPU Reset' on google for more info.

    No, sorry, you misunderstood.
    Neither procedure does anything to your OS installation.

    Every time you start your PC, the OS checks with the BIOS to see if any hardware has changed. This is what I meant by "repopulate it's device information".
    In your case we hope that the temp sensor comes back on once the hardware list is refreshed.

    Oh, sorry, yes I misunderstood then. Alright I'll try it then, tho I would need to remove gpu in order to get to that 3v battery. And in your #8 post you said
    press the power button for a few seconds
    , what kind of power button? Is there a power button once I remove the battery?

    Read it about here - 3 Ways to Reset Your BIOS - wikiHow
    Also found out that there are 3 methods in the article, 2 of whom you mentioned. Are there any advantages or disadvantages which method you use to reset the BIOS?

    #3- Reset the Jumper is the one that you want

    EDIT: Reset the jumper is Method #2 in the link.

    Yes, but all 3 methods do the same trick - resets the BIOS/Clears CMOS. Couldn't I just do the #1 by going into BIOS itself and resetting it? Or by removing the battery and clearing the CMOS that way is somewhat different?

    No. All 3 methods do not do the same thing.
    All 3 methods will reset the BIOS defaults. You want to do more than that.

    You want to clear the CMOS, or reset the Real Time Clock. This should clear the hardware list in BIOS. Resetting the Bios settings to defaults will not do that.

    Correction:
    Method #2 or Method #3 is what you want, with Method #2 being the best option.

    Completely forgot about this.
    I just cleared the CMOS via jumper method, but no luck. Still can't see motherboard temperatures on any software. Nothing really changed, just reset my BIOS settings.

    You may have a faulty motherboard then after all. The trouble I have with that concept is that it would mean the socket is bad. That is highly unusual if the system runs otherwise.
    Is it still under warranty?

    Yes, it is still under warranty, just built a new pc.
    Well, the strange thing is that everything runs fine, without any issues. Also, I can actually see the motherboard temperatures and everything in BIOS, so I don't know how could the motherboard be faulty. The only thing that is not working is the microphone (which could also be motherboard's fault), I've made a comment about it here - link
    What even are the downsides that I can't see any info about temps/voltages on my motherboard other than BIOS (on other forum, I was told just to ignore this issue)?
