Just out of curiosity - what program are you using that displays that floating green text at the top right of your desktop? Is that Core Temp? I didn't know it could do that.
The program is pc wizard availiable at cpuid.com

I want to lap mine at some point but I can imagine a way to hold it perfectly flat without some jig or steadying device.

thanks
Sorry I was ment to upload the picture of how I held it, the method works if your careful, here it is:

I am no expert but as they say every little helps (Don't know how easy it would be as they are very big)

I only ended up doing this because I decided to start folding for OCN and my temps were too high to be left of for about 18 hour days, not 24/7 because I like it quiet when I sleep
