I'm finally getting around to overclocking my E8400 and am getting strange readings. The setup:

Abit IP35 Pro
E8400 CPU (C0 revision)
Noctua cooler
Antec Nine Hundred case
Corsair ram

I'm running the CPU at 400x9 (3600mhz) and 1.28v (needed this much to get Prime95 stable). Ram is at 2.1v and 5-5-5-15 and passed memtest86.

On to the problem: I'm consistently running 37 degrees at idle, but am seeing no higher than 41 degrees under 100%. I'm monitoring with Speedfan and Coretemp, and both verify the results of the other. What is going on? I'm expecting at least 55 degrees, but not seeing any real bump in temps. I know the Noctua cooler is great, but I have a hard time believing its _that_ good. I know this line of CPUs has problems with bad sensors, and I'm wondering if I've gotten one of those. What do you all think?
