I emailed them saying my CPU is running at 60C but the cores are close to 80C and they said "Your processor is running at 60 degrees Celsius, this is below the maximum recommended temperature for the CPU, again you do not need to worry about the temperature of the cores, just make sure that the temperature of the CPU does not go higher than 71.4 degrees Celsius."
Also, cant have 20C difference between core and cpu diode. my guess is you are using coretemp or everest or hwm for temps, which is using tjmax 105, which is likely 10 too high, and hence temps reading 10C too high. So your cores may only be 70C.
Intel says its ok for my Cores to be running at 80C as long as the CPU itself does not get over 71C. Is this really ok?
Are you sure you fully read the e-mail and did not miss something ??
check again, you must find the following mentioned somewhere
" If it smoked send us your money and we'll be more than happy to send you another one"
