Well, i have a core 2 quad q6600 and tried 3 programs to monitor temperature under 100% CPU load and...

(Note: the values under temp2 on speedfan are constant/never change...)

The problem is that, since they are showing different temperatures, i don't know which is correct if any ever is... Nor if its the actual core temperature or what...

On a side note, yesterday before i reinstalled the heatsink and cooler the computer shut down on 100% load while i was running everest, when it was registering about 99C on the "CPU" field, the individual core temperatures went negative before the shut down.

Still i must know if, now after reinstalling the heatsink, these temperatures are good or not and can damage the cpu or not... Oh, consider that my room's temperature is about 30C (Yes i'm sweating...)

Thanks in advance!

Those are idle temps in Everest? Either way, your computer shut down due to cpu temperature being too high. Check to make sure the heatsink is installed correctly.

Are you overclocking?

If you look in the picture you can see 100% cpu load... those temperatures are after a few mins running under 100% load, after i reinstalled the heatsink and put new thermal paste under it...

I didn't look at the pic too well my bad. Anyway temps are still too high.

Hows your case airflow? Might look into improving that, also what is the ambient temperature in the computer room?

There is a 22cm diameter ventilator on the side of my case so air flow should be high...

The ambient temperature is near 30C tho.
