This appears to be an issue specific to the drive's reporting. I've got the same model (a 128GB), and the reading shows up the same way - not only in Link, but also in Open Hardware Monitor. This seems to be the way the drive reports the temperature via SMART (where normalizing other ratings to 100 is fairly common), so I'm guessing that it'll take a fix on Corsair's part to deal specifically with drives that use this sort of reporting style.

Count me in as another who'd like to see a change or workaround in this, though. Aside from being confusing to look at, it also doesn't look like controlling anything based on the reading will work as expected without special handling... Not that I have anything for Link to control that would impact my drive temps.
