Soooo, when I said T_junction I was referring to something I read in a guide. It was a temp guide for c2d's and it looked pretty legit.
Here it is:
"Some users also may not know that C2D's feature 3 sensors at 2 different temperatures; a single on-die Tcase sensor (between the Cores), and dual Tjunction sensors (one within each Core)."
-That was one statement made by the author.
So your saying he is flat out wrong? (no sarcasm intended, I honestly dont know)
And also, I use NVidia monitor with my mobo, which gives me a cpu temp (tcase I always thought) of whatever. (usually I stay from 50 -55c when OCing)
I also use speedfan to second the cpu (tcase as I thought) temperature, because my speedfan measures the same temps for cpu (tcase?) as the Nvidia monitor.
I also use TAT
However, the speed fan core monitors and TAT core monitors which I both thought were Tjunction temps according to the guide, were always a ways off from eachother.
And, referring to the guide again, the Tjunction measured by the TAT was only about 7-10 degrees higher as opposed to 15c. But, as I read in the guide, when you use orthos the temps go down to a 10c degrees diff from a 15c difference.
Still, my speedfan reads my cores as about 15-23c LOWER than my cpu read in speedfan and Nvidia monitor.
SOOOOOO, my question basically is, (now that I'm all confused over Tcase-junction) what temp monitor do I need to measure Tcase and Tjunction. (mainly Tjunction, if it exists...) Because my tcase temp I am pretty sure is right because both speedfan and Nvidia monitor measure them about the same... but then again the speedfan tjunction monitor is off, so the other may be aswell...... Ahhh I'm all screwed up!
Finally, I read the post saying that TAT is only supposed to be used for mobile processors, and it said use speedfan. But my speedfan reads lower than the cpu tcase temp!!!!!!!
Ah, what to doo...
