MSI z97 Gaming 5 Motherboard Tempature Sensor Issue

My current specs:
i7-4790k @ 4.4ghz

MSI z97 Gaming 5 Motherboard

CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO

16gb (4x4gb) G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)


ThermalTake TR2-500watt PowerSupply


And my main issue is in the bios my cpu temp sensor is reading 0 but it is picking up all the cpu fan and the case fans. im using NZXT Cam to monitor my temps and it gives me temp read outs. i also used HWMonitor to compare and it also was reading the right temps.. wgat ciykd cayse the bios to stop reading the cpu temps? it use to work before.. i built this computer around around 3-4 years ago... i got the gtx 1060 about 2 years ago and this system has been doing me well. also if you guys have any opinions, i want to upgrade the ram to max supported and was curious what ram you would recommend for this type of setup. im also getting a Corsair H110i Liquid Cooler so I can overclock more.... a M.2 Samsung Evo 500gb and thats it for now for upgrades... eventually i plan on doing a new build and using this as a second pc. I also attached a screenshot of the issue. It's not a big issue but I would like to fix it.

got to say there isnt much performance to gain with an overclock if you are on a 1060, but overclocking is FUN :D anyway i have no fix for this, CAM is also kinda shit because it eats up loads of resources just sitting there. was using something like 15% of my CPU last time i used it ?

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...  nothing, it just sits there collecting dust...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 


#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.
