Samsung SSD (ATA) - Reported temperature too high

Using ESXI 6.7u3

Have 3 SSD drives in a 1U Supermicro SYS-5019D-FN8TP

1x Samsung EVO 840 (ESXI install)

1x Samsung 970 PRO nvme (Datastore)

1x Samsung 960 PRO SATA  (Datastore)

Via cli, I can see the following:

Both SATA drives are reported as having 73 degrees while the M.2 drive as 30 degrees.
I have tested with a live Linux USB and all 3 SSDs are idling at 25-30 degrees Celsius, with a maximum temperature of  ~35 degrees for the two SATA and ~55 for the M.2 under load.Ambient temperature is 22 degrees Celsius.

I am pretty sure the reported values for both SATA SSDs are incorrect, but then again, I not 100%.

Anyone with similar Samsung SSDs can please tell me how their devices are reported temperature wise?

Thank you

We had similiar issue with Cisco servers.

There was a bug in firmware in our case.

I am thinking Samsung or VMWare pulled a NASA on this, reporting some values in Fahrenheit.
Because 73 F is ~23 C, which is just about right.
