    hello, for the time being i have my e6300 in my gigabyte ep45-ud3p and it reads the cpu as being 22c idle and 38c full load. Each core idles at 39c and max load is at 55-57c. All of these temps are from everest. Im just curious of how my cpu is idling at 22c when ambient is 20c.

    Cpu is overclocked to 2.6ghz and i have a zerotherm nirvana cooling it. thanks

    Compare the Everest temps with another program such as Core Temp. I used to have that processor and I got temp readings almost as good using a Tuniq Tower with my e6300 @ 3.2ghz, so your your readings seem pretty accurate.

    make sure TjMax is set correctly. Some programs have it at a too low default. Since temp sensors basically report the distance to this TjMax, and not actual temp, you can be consistantly 5 degrees low.

    well the cores match realtemp and coretemp but the cpu temp istelf is not listed in those programs. I know the temp of the cpu itself doesnt make that much difference but im just curious. The temp im talking about is cpu not core 1/2. Thanks

    also check the readings of cpu temp from your bios and from easytune software provided by gigabyte (under windows)

    the easy tune software and bios both say 22c so im guessing this is correct reading. Thanks
