Hi! After years of good work, I've just had an alert for my Sandisk SSD overheating, HWMonitor graph being stuck at 108°C! o_O
I touched the SSD and it was still cold as ice, I was on my way for rebooting but, before doing that, I quit HWMonitor, launched Hardware Monitor instead and the temperature was a solid 28°C... Relaunched HWMonitor, it was back to 27°C.
So what happened? Is it the sensor that is going haywire? A bug in HWMonitor? — I use 6.26 version.

EDIT 04/2021: I had more and more crashes after that and a few months later I finally found out that there was a high number of bad blocks! I've immediately bought a new SSD and using the old one for testing purposes, just to be safe, but it looks all has been cured by a thorough reformatting.
