Core 2 Duo Processor Temperatures

Been having quite a good long thread going about my new Core2Duo system (E6400) that I've built.

forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/Gigabyte-965P-S3-E6400-OC-complete-newbie-ftopict214389.html

I'm seeing HUGE differences between the CPU temp as reported by hardware monitoring and that reported by Intel's TAT - around 30* diff between the two.

I'd appreciate it if guys with a Core2Duo (especially but not exclusively if you have an E6400 or E6300) could post their temperatures - One reported by say the BIOS and then one reported by Intel's TAT tools or similar.

I'd like to see what everyone else is getting to see how strange my results are.


I'm having like a CPU temp of 40 reported by a normal hardware monitoring tool and the BIOS but with Intel's TAT I'm getting a reported level of 70.

That makes me:

BIOS / Intel TAT
40 / 70



Please post your results too
Thanks :)

Under Load, I get 60 TAT, and 56 in Speedfan.

E6400 Overclocked to 2.66Ghz.

E6600 @ stock, room temp 24C:

Bios - 35C
Intel TAT - idle 50/52C, 100% load 67/67C, 65% load 55/58C
Speed Fan - idle 28C, 65% load 38C, 100% load 48C

What BIOS temp do u get with this?

TAT: 20c idle, 37c load max.
RMClock: 32 idle, 47 load max.

TAT takes readings from different sensors than what SpeedFan or RMClock does.

YIKES!!!!
20*C??? What's the temperature outside and what kinda cooling are you using?!?!?!?

Me being a cheap prick and living in Maine, it's about 64* F inside; though I think TAT is a little off. It's been about 10* F here all week - not factoring in 20mph winds.

So -12*C - no wonder your getting such good temps ;)  lol.
Who needs nitrus freezing when its that cold outside.

(Specs in my sig)

Bios - 47c , 56c 100%load
Coretemp - 47c , 56 100%load
Gigabyte Easytune - 40, 49c100%load

All those in a room temp of about 29c

i got 2x 4500rpm 80cm fans blowing air out the rear and 1x 120mm 3500rpm fan blowing in (yes it hell loud)

Really.
Been thinking about building a plexyglass box, sticking my PC in it, and building a widow platform for it to sit on outside. My overclocks would resemble the outside ambient. :D
