Ok, now I'm getting frustrated. How can I tell the appropriate Core 2 Duo temperature for my E6850?

Core Temp 0.95 (where do I get version 0.95.2?) shows about 55C @ load with Orthos with Tjunction = 85C with CPU @ 3.5GHz, 1.4v. At idle it shows about 25C with ambient @ 22C. Is this even possible?

If I let the system idle in BIOS it shows about 35C CPU temp, which is about a 10C higher offset from what is shown in CoreTemp and/or SpeedFan. Which is right?

if you have speedstep enabled then yeah, i guess its ok to have that big of a difference between load and idle. core temp is usually accurate and i trust that, so of course i'll tell you to listen to that. also if you have a stock heatsink then yeah, 55C is normal.

Thanks. I see some jpgs in these newsgroups with CoreTemp 0.95.2. Know where I can get it? My CoreTemp shows 85C Tjunction. Is this correct? Or should it be 100C?

It just seems like temps are a little bit low. If I put a temp probe in the case near the HSF, it shows temps near what coretemp shows. I guess that's why I was wondering if that's possible. It seems that the CPU temps should be more than air coming into the case, or at least the air near the HSF.
