Ok guys. I got a new computer, you can see it in my signature. So first off, using the Asus PC probe II software, running Prime95, and a CPU stability test, my temperature shows as being 34° Celcius....This just seems low to me. That, added to the fact that this processor is overclocked to 2.7 GHz. Doesn't that seem too low? I am using this heat sink... http://www.viperlair.com/reviews/cooling/air/coolermaster/hsf/hyper48/
By the way, the processor seems to be cool to the touch.

If you want an accurate temperature, use a thermometer (though that only gives the HSF temp, rather than the die itself)

The motherboard sensors are a 10 cent uncalibrated device, used as a rough guide. Expect +/- 10°C from them. An accurate electronic themometer would cost about the same as the whole motherboard, as an example.

You may want to have a look at T.A.T. otherwise known as "Intel Thermal Analysis Tool" it gives you the temp on each core(google for it)...It also allows you to stress each one individually...It will read higher then Pc probe II...Just remeber what kiwiguy said

And use the readings you get as a estimate of true results

Although, I am running this TAT program...and as soon as I put 100% load on the chip it jumps within 2 seconds from like 20°C to like 40°. Why is this?
