    Do NOT try to clean inside the CPU socket!! The contact points in the socket, all 1,366 of them for an i7-920 CPU, are very delicate! You cannot touch them with anything like a cloth or Q-Tip, and never touch them with your finger! The contacts will bend very easily and cannot be fixed, you must replace the mother board if that happens.

    The inside of the CPU socket does not get dirty as long as a CPU is in the socket, or its cover is on. Dirt or dust is not the problem with the sensor, it is just a tiny electronic part that is not working right, and stuck at sending a signal that is equal to 127C. That part cannot be replaced.

    The good news is that sensor is not part of the CPU itself. If it was, the CPU would shut itself off since 127C is above the maximum temperature of any CPU.

    As the others have said, just ignore that reading, it is just wrong and will not affect your use of that mother board.

    thanks for your advice,

    another question will be... a BIOS update will be fix this issue?

    I don't think a BIOS update can fix your problem, because your board is the only one with this problem, as far as I know.

    If ALL the boards of this model had this problem, then a BIOS update for a fix would be more possible, since the BIOS would probably be the problem.

    That temperature sensor is broken on the board, a BIOS update can't fix a broken part.
