Hmmm... What exactly is the difference between the core temp and the actual temp? What is each one measuring? And how can the core temp be that much higher than the actual temp? When the test finished I ended up having a 15 degree difference between the max temps.

Alright, I did some researching on core temp vs CPU temp and figured out and it does make sense that they will be different. So the question now is, which number should I base my OC on? I may back off my OC another GHz to be on the safer side.

Base your overclock on core temperature, that's where all the action in your CPU is happening, the cores. I'm assuming the actual temp is measuring the IHS temp.

Thanks, I just dropped my OC a bit more to get it down into around the mid to high 70s (core temp) at 100% load. I may try tweaking my vcore a bit to try to lower temps too. And I'll probably buy some better fans this week and see if that helps any. Then get a double Rad setup once I save up enough to get a bigger case to go with it.

Thanks for all the help guys!
