    Default EP45-DS3L - Temp readings

    I am getting different temperature readings, depending on which program I use to view temperature. I have an Intel E8500 dual core CPU. All of these readings are at idle, I believe.

    Core 0 and Core 1:
    Speed Fan: 45
    Core Temp: 50 (Tjmax: 105)
    HW Monitor: 45
    Real Temp: 40 (Tjmax: 55)

    Why are these readings different?

    Also, HW Monitor shows:
    Temp0: 32
    Temp1: 19
    HDD: 27

    Are those good readings, or too hot or too cold?

    It is because of your TjMax setting. Be sure you have the latest of both programs. Coretemp and RealTemp, HW Monitor is just not P45/45nm ready

    Use latest Coretemp, it should by default have the correct TjMax for your CPU, which is 100C >>>
    Core Temp

    RealTemp you will have to likely set TjMax to 100C, and calibrate it. Calibration is a MUST!!! This is the best App I believe once calibrated correctly >>>

    Good Idle temps for a 45Nm CPU are 30-40, depending on your Heatsink and ambient
