Mainboard temperature 117°C?

Decided to install hwmonitor to monitor my fresh hardware, but the mainboard temperature lists 117 degrees celcius..
I really hope this isn't correct.

Yeah, you might wanna install a fourth fan. Or a better heatsink.
Also make sure the thermal paste is still alright.

I think it's just a faulty sensor, after booting it's already 118 degrees according to HWmonitor,  which just isn't possible.
