You must of missed his other three threads on temps. None of the other programs read right.

its insanely cool so you shouldn't care

but core temp works. i usually try to do a couple programs and either take the average temp or the most common temp reading.

coretemp does not work well with the e8400. I thought he said that already. I hope this one works, maybe I can finally do some 4.8 runs or so.
