Default Corsair Link show 1 or 7 Temps spiking repeatedly 127C to 0C

A couple of months ago I decided to do something about the CPU temperature, which originally showed at 28C on startup 4 years ago, but over the years has creeped up to 36-38C. The Corsair community suggested reapplying the thermal compound to my liquid cooler... which worked great and the CPU temp was back down to 27-28C!
A couple weeks ago I had some issues with a couple of fans starting to go bad. Yesterday I got them replaced. I fired up the Corsair Link and I noticed the following under the heading Asus Maximus Extreme VI.
There are 7 temperature monitor points for the MOBO
Temp #1 26C
Temp #2 29C
Temp #3 26C
Temp #4 30C
Temp #5 48C
**Temp #6 This is the reason for the post. It spikes at 127C for a second and then 0C for 2-3 seconds, repeatedly.
Temp #7 36C
All the other temperatures are steady.

I'm not sure who to question about how to understand what is causing the Temp #6 spiking.
Is there a way to find out what the ASUS MOBO monitor points are. Maybe I have something blocked or covered.
I have extra external filters that I clean monthly and I open the PC up monthly and vacuum it .
I am putting the same question to the ASUS site. This may be what the Corsair Link does if there is no Temp #6 monitor info. I just never noticed if this ever happened before.

I greatly appreciate any suggestions. This Maximus Extreme VI was my first PC build and even though it is about 4-5 years old I still love this beast a lot.

The motherboard sensors are notoriously inaccurate. Asus, especially, will have "ghost" sensors with bogus readings. And this one is definitely bogus.
Please click "Edit System Specs" and fill out your system info.
