I just got XP Professional installed on my aunt's build with an E8400 cooled by a Xigmatek HDT-S1283 on a Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L board. In the BIOS it reads the CPU temp at 22C, but now that I am in XP I have CoreTemp and HWMon reading at 43-40C on 0% load. This cannot be normal! What is going on? The only thing I am doing right now is formatting the partition I created on the 160GB HDD, and the CPU load is zero, so why am I getting such high temperature readings? I used Arctic Silver for TIM.
