    I have the 2011 Macbook Pro with the 6750M 1GB/Intel HD 3000 combo. I checked the Intel HD's temperatures with the latest version of iStat Pro, and it is obviously incorrect. I have confirmed that this error only occurs on the integrated card, not the discreet 6750M. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Ignore it.
    Those numbers are off when the Intel GPU is in use. They have nothing to do with the Intel GPU only the dedicated. If you leave the Intel GPU on long enough it usually goes down to a '-'.

    +1 for what dusk007 said.

    Those are only accurate when the 6750m is activated. I don't believe the Intel HD3000 gets its own temp sensor so its probably still the 6750 that it is reporting on.
