it can show all the temp sensors on the cpu * there are allot and it can be confusing

most of the readings or temps that are off are off by 27 degrees or more - or +

so you will start to see next to negative numbers if you have good watercooling ..

it is dangerous because you could easily hit high temps without realizing it. .. for a while I had one of the sensors tucked next the cpu its was if its touching the side of the cpu and its is in the ball park of what you are reading with other software then I would trust the software.

So looks like mines is good all programs are reporting about the same ryzen master, coretemp, hwinfo and the tctl is off by 27 degrees which from my reading and you here is supposed to be like that to give the fans a lil headroom to kick in when the temps are rising.

yeah I was worried about it like you said it can cause some serious trouble im assuming if we think we cool but in all reality we running hot.
