Is this temperature sensor working fine?

I bought a ASUS zephyrus laptop (i7-9750h) , but I thought the temperature sensor of CPU in my laptop was defective so I sent it back.

But they said it was fine and charged restocking fee.

I used Intel XTU. The temperature sensor wasn't stable.​ Here's my video below.

The xtu is for X and K processors. You do not have an X or K processor.

 

If asus says it is fine, then that is the answer.

Regardless, the sensor is fine. Welcome to the world where, because Intel used TIM instead​ of solder, temperatures are more volatile. Combine this with Windows 10, which has so many maintenance tasks running in the background, and temperatures are a *lot* more volatile.
