I have a Phenom processor and it reads 40C no matter what. When I had a 
Brisbane processor in the same mb, it was correct. Rebooting and going into 
the BIOS shows the correct temperature. But

# cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature

is dead wrong. Not quite the same problem, but if its not able to get the 
temperature right, it may not be doing other power/thermal policy things
