Right around 61C is what Intel states as the Max for most C2D's... Not that staying as low as possible is a bad idea.. Everyone should stay as low as possible.. However, 61C load is really all that hot for a CPU.. Remember 55C idle Celerons?
Yes, 3 different results from various programs is odd.. Only thing I can think is that those programs were last updated before the 4400 was released.. That could have a little to do with it..
Your concerns for high temps, I dont think are needed... Example: His 66C reading was his DTS reading.. No one knows how far the DTS can be pushed.. Intel gives us the T_case max and Not a DTS max... 66C DTS means he is probably around 59C-60C T_case...Again under Intel's Max temp.. But that has everything to do with whether or not he is getting an accurate DTS reading..
yeah, i can see your point on the 4400 update thing thats a likely fault.
and i missed the bit about DTS, i thought we were talking T_junc/case
in which case, i should be worried
i still believe it to be a tad too high for my personal liking.
i have a P4 willamette & northy that never go above 49C (stock)
so i guess im spoiled with good steppings xD
