false alarm by the sensors command?


The sensors command from lm_sensors has this output on my linux computer.
How to determine whether the alarm is valid or false?

Do those values correspond to the ones listed by the BIOS ? They may be real alarms as long as it matches what the BIOS says. Sometimes the sensors output is off or not correctly calibrated, but that's usually for CPU temperatures, not for voltages.
