Hello all,
I recently did a 775 Core2Quad ---> 771 Xeon (X5460 in my case) mod and everything works fine, I had no problems so far.
Then I checked the temperatures and... Idle temp. was between 50 and 60°C. During full load temps were between 75 and 80°C. !!!according to Core Temp and OCCT....AIDA64 and HWinfo both show under 60°C under full load
There it gets tricky:
1. I have a good cooler.
https://www.arctic.ac/eu_en/freezer-xtreme-rev-2.html and I attached an additional fan to it.

2. I used different software for monitoring CPU temps and I got very different results (picture below):

It only gets worse If I overclock.

I have a following question:
1.Which of the temp. monitoring software is right (i read somewhere not all programs show temp. correctly since there is a 771 socket CPU in a 775 socket motherboard)
And yes I installed my CPU cooler correctly and there is no problem with thermal grease.
Any help would be appreciated.
