Now it's entirely possible the sensors are outta sorts but from what I understand it's in the sockets not the CPU where the problem lays. Thubans have a -10c fluctuation and AMD says that it's in the socket. Where as ours(yours included) only have a ~-1c to -3c fluctuation in reported temps so far as I know. His is -10c different when it really should not be. Not unless he's running a full h2o system anyway. See this is why I need the input so I can see if there is something that he's done and if that is a true temp.
Cause if it is then I should be able to bring my temp down even further.
Yes, but my dual core is unlocked into a quad core and a B55 is essentially a 955, as their specs are completely the same except for max operating temp. I fail to see what their differences are, unless you're thinking I run my chip as a dual core? I guarantee you that it's a quad at 4ghz.
Also, what I was saying was that my temps seem to be about -10C of what they really should be as I did have a 955 C2 before and comparing it to my B55 (essentially the same chip) my temps are about ~7-9C lower than what I had with my 955. It's true that the 2-3C difference is there, but that's comparing my core temps to my CPU socket temps, which was the same difference with my 955.
I'm not trying to pick a fight or anything, but I just thought my system would be comparable to your guys' systems. If you still find it any different from yours, then I'll stop posting about this temp issue.
