Hello, I just downloaded Speedfan and I'm concerned about my temperature readings:
HD0: 42
Temp 1: 74C
Temp 2: 75C
Core 0: 74C
Core 1: 75C
My computer specs:
Intel Centrino Duo
T2050@ 1.60GHz
1.60 GHz, 504 MB RAM

The fan is really loud normally and the computer freezes intermittently (usually when I'm streaming Netflix on full screen display). I really have no clue when it comes to computer hardware and I'm wondering what my best course of action might be to improve it's performance. Thanks in advance!

Speedfan has it's limitations, and coretemps is one of them. Try Coretemp, see if it gives you different readings.

Speedfan reads my Q6600 about 16C high.

Things can get a little weird. I don't bother with Speedfan. Instead, I use Coretemp, Realtemp, and Hardare Monitor Pro. I usually run Prime95 at full load at full load while running all three utilites to get the maximum temperature readings. There will be some variation between the utilities, usually no more than 2C.
