are you running prime95 on both cores? what is air temperature like? all i know is that temperature sounds suspiciously like what i would get under those settings with one core under full load. 2.7@1.5v is quite good. i've had mine at 2.85ghz@1.63v.

use run in the start menu and click browse, navigate to where you extracted prime95 to. run it. open run again and find the entry that has the location of prime 95 and add " -A1" to the end of it, including a space and excluding the quotation marks. run that command and you can run two instances of prime95. click options/affinity and change one of them to core 0 and the other core 1. i have a feeling it may fail running two instances of prime.

those temperatures are more like what i expected. lucky New Zealander you are, from what i understand the Big Typhoon generally beats the 9500 by a degree or so yet i get those temperatures at ~1.45-1.475v. even on "cold days"
