Sensors is reporting values found in Linux virtual file system directory:
You can find them out yourself (even if Sensors isn’t installed) using:
$ paste <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/type) <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp) | column -s $'\t' -t | sed 's/...$/.0°C/' INT3400 Thermal 20.0°C pch_skylake -47.0°C SEN1 52.0°C SEN2 48.0°C SEN3 55.0°C SEN4 58.0°C B0D4 54.0°C x86_pkg_temp 54.0°C
pch_skylake sensor has gone crazy. Whilst researching the problem I found this question and posted this answer.
