If this is already used with that program, then RMA the chip and get a new one. I have my Q9550 OC'd to 3.77 and no cores get above 40 at idle. 38 38 35 35 are my usual temps, again this is using Real Temp. kyeana January 16, 2009 8:05:25 PM probably a stuck sensor. You may want to consider RMAing it.
