  1. Best answer
    is that idle temp or load temp??

    either ways , i recommend using coretemp or HWiNFO32. speedfan has always given me incorrect readings in all my motherboards :(
  2. allright man ill look into that thanks man
  3. For an intel, shut off temp is 100C. Don't let it get that high. That core is proably rated @ 71*C (pretty standard), I would do my best not to let it pass 65 for over a few minuts. This wont cause instant damage, but a cooler CPU is a longer lasting CPU. I'm @ 44C idle, 55C load sustained, and whie thats fine, I would like to drop about 10C, but its not *nessicary*

    +1 for the core temp program.
