Two month back after deep search I found that E8400 chips have more than 60 errata plus the wrong temps reporting
Hope the new batches arriving will be better
I think we should not run after the first batches of any newchip hitting shelves
You all know the diffrence between the first release of Q6600 B3 stepping and the later G0 stepping
The programs that read the digital thermal sensor info get a numeric value from the DTS that is *not* actually the temperature of the core. The value is sort of a measure of thermal intensity and needs to be fed into a formula along with the proper calibration offset to get the correct temperature value. The offset is called T_junction (IIRC) and it varies by CPU line. The E8000 series do not have their T_junction figures published, so the programs like coretemp have to guess at what the T_junction is. They seem to be guessing wrong as people are reporting some very wacky temperatures.
