I think it is the temp that if reached, will automatically lower your multi to like 6 to reduce heat and prevent damage to your CPU. But thats just what I heard.

this has probably been asked a lot but why is it different on core temp? 105 instead of 95

there is an error in coretemp when it comes to the new 45nm chips. but basically, once your temps reach its tj max, it will throttle down before damage to itself.

The maximum rated/allowable temperature of the area of contact between the die and the heatspreader (or is it the heatspreader and the heatsink?).

alright guess I'll go by real temp. anything over 65 celcius in real temp is cause for alarm right?

I prefer CoreTemp for 65nm's and Real Temp for 45nm's. The important thing with an E8400 (since the temps don't get as high as 65nm's) - is the VCORE. Intel specs say that 1.3625 is the MAX for long life on that 45nm CPU.

so anything under 1.3625 vcore is going to last the same amount of time as if you never touched the vcore and left it at stock?

Anything over stock speeds has the potential to reduce the lifespan. But, I figure by the time it burns out in a few years, I'll be buying a newer, faster CPU anyways
