It's normal for the CPU's internal diode to report a higher temp than the thermistor that's in the Socket A. However, 78C looks dangerous to me. Some folks insist that if it runs, there's no problem. Perhaps 78C isn't an accurate temp. AFAIK, some mainboards don't report the processor's internal temperature accurately. I think that you'd have a lot of instability if the temp was really 78C!
When the world will be better.
