Last time I had this debate, it took a while to find. There's the .pdf on intels website that has the engineering tech specs. It's seriously like 100 pages long. I pored over it and found it. I just don't feel like doing that again.

So realtemp is Intel now?

TJMax

TCase
= Temperature they measure using a thermocouple embedded in the centre of the heat spreader. In Other words surface temperature of the chip.
How is it surface temperature when the diode is underneath the IHS and directly over the cores?

That would be very pointless and absolutely ridiculous since the CPU gets higher than that with the stock cooler. Seriously, Here, take this great new chip, we call it the i7, it comes with a tiny cooler that loads @ 70C + and it has a TJMax of 67C.
I'm not saying that it can't run higher than that, obviously it can and does so very well. However, the ideal prime conditions for optimal life is 67C and below.
When I got this 920, I searched for max safe temps because no one could clearly show me proof that the TjMax is 100C. Whereas with AMD I could easily go to their website and find the max safe temps in seconds.
When I OC I get somewhat infatuated with temps, I like to keep them as low as possible. I've lapped all sorts of stuff to drop temps, including NB heatsinks.

At any rate, show me an INTEL document that states that it's 100C. And when you do, I'll give you one internets!
