healthd oddities

With my FreeBSD current system I decided to try healthd again, it didn't
work with my previous motherboard.  It seems to work with my new
motherboard (Intel Serverworks of some sort, I can get a model number
later if it matters), however all the numbers are just out of range.
Pardon the HTML, but it's the easiest way to get them labeled:

# healthdc -H
Content-type: text/html

<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>Chip Set Temperature</TD><TD>255.0</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>CPU #0 Temperature</TD><TD> 0.0</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>CPU #1 Temperature</TD><TD> 0.0</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>CPU #0 Cooling Fan</TD><TD>0000</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>CPU #1 Cooling Fan</TD><TD>0000</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>Case Fan Cooling Fan</TD><TD>0000</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>CPU #0 Core Voltage</TD><TD>4.08</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>CPU #1 Core Voltage</TD><TD>4.08</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>3.3 Volt</TD><TD>4.08</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>5 Volt</TD><TD>6.85</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>12 Volt</TD><TD>15.50</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>-12 Volt</TD><TD>-14.16</TD></TR>
<TR><TD ALIGN=RIGHT>-5 Volt</TD><TD>-6.12</TD></TR>


Note 3.3 volt is 4.08, 5 volt is 6.85, etc.  The system is not over
clocking or doing anything else wierd.  They are enough out of range
healthd warns on them by default to syslog.

Anyone seen this before?  Do I have a problem I didn't know I had?
