Honestly I have the same problem, and we have the same board. I honestly just gave up. I have Tuniq on my q6600 at 1.38v running 306.5(I can't get it any higher damn board ) and even at stock, with my ambient temps at 22c I get temps from 36-42 which seems high to me at that low of a ambient!! But if I push it I reach 55-60.

I've tried re-seating more than 5 times, tried different ways of applying my thermal paste, I just CAN'T get the same temps people here say they get with theirs.

CPU temp is read at the surface of mid part of heat spreader.
Core temp is read inside of heat spreader, therefore inside of CPU.

There is no possibly way to read the accurate core temp digitally, we can only get the temp from heat spreader.

If you want to look at cpu temp, go ahead. It will satisfy you cuz it's usually lower than the real core temp.
But make sure you don't blame after blow your cpu.
