does the CPUtemp of 33c go up like TAT does when you load test, or does it just raise a little...if it changes consistant to TAT but lower that maybe your T_case...
My mobo the TEMP1 doesn't change with speed fan, for others it does..
Even speedfan says it can be tricky to find you cpu temp with their software...they suggest monitoring temps and running load and idle tests to find your cpu temp...
So don't bail out on this idea yet...first make sure you are reading your T_case and not the NB or Ambiant temps...

I missed that post...thats what i keep hearing on other forums..and i think this is why we see the formula Core Temp = T_junction -DTS...the DTS is a counter for throttle...
someone correct me if i am wrong about that..
