30c to high 40c: idle
40c to 60c: load


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

My E6400, idles around 48C and under load is still really high, like 64C... :S. also I have a Thermaltake Mini Typhoon on there as well... I dunno why mines so hot though.
Also in Core Temp beta 0.94 are you supposed to take the reading off the CPU #0 or #1 and what is the difference? there is always a 5C difference between the two #1 is always less than #0.
