What is CPUTIN temp?

I got this temp monitoring program. There is this indicator "CPUTIN" and it says 58C? (see pic below) What is it? And why is it so high? My CPU temperature is about 38C during web browsing use (CPU package temp)

Google "define CPUTIN" for an in-depth explanation.

CPU Temperature Index

CPUTIN is different from CoreTemp. CoreTemp is the sensor on the processor while CPUTIN is motherboard CPU temp sensor.

Info found here: HWMonitor CPUID: What is CPUTIN, AUXTIN, SYSTIN and TMPIN3? - Apps - Apps General Discussion

Your temperatures appear OK to me.
