Here you go, they responded this evening:

Dear Intel,

I recently bought en E8400 CPU. After installing it I naturally checked the core temperatures only to find that both sensors were stuck or jumpy and would not give me accurate mesurements. How am I supposed to know my CPU is running at a safe temperature when the thermal sensors are faulty? What can I do about this?

Hello David,

Thank you for contacting Intel(R) Customer Support.

I understand that you are concerned about the operating temperature of the Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo processor E8400.

The maximum operating temperature of the Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo processor E8400 is 72.4 degrees Celsius. As long as the processor is operating under this temperature it is operating within specifications. We do not have a normal operating temperature for the processor as this temperature will vary depending on the chassis and other hardware installed on the system as well as the actual load the software is placing on the processor.

To verify the thermal information for this processor please visit the following website:
http://processorfinder.intel.com/Det...slapl&OrdCode=

There is always going to be a 5-to-10-degree difference between cores because there is a main core, which is going to have the constant load of the system (even when this is at idle conditions) and a secondary core that the motherboard and the operating system would determine when to function.

Furthermore, this type of situation is usually related to the incorrect recognition of the microcode of the processor. The microcode of the processor is an electronic string that works as an identifier that the system BIOS and the motherboard itself use for communicating to the processor when it comes to data transference. If the microcode string is broken (this can happen because of static or grounding) then the system starts reporting wrong information like overheating or wrong specifications on the processor.

I would recommend updating the system BIOS to the latest revision available.

To reduce overheating you will need to use a thermally advantaged chassis. A Thermally Advantaged Chassis will help reduce overheating to a minimum. Please check the following website to identify a thermally advantaged chassis:
http://support.intel.com/support/pro.../CS-008537.htm

Additional thermal information is available at the following web sites:
http://support.intel.com/support/pro.../CS-007999.htm
http://support.intel.com/design/pent...des/252161.htm
http://support.intel.com/design/pent...des/249889.htm
http://support.intel.com/support/pro.../CS-015912.htm
http://www.intel.com/cd/channel/rese...ence/99346.htm

Also, high CPU utilization is almost always caused by an application or program, in many cases a virus or spy ware; therefore, make sure that your antivirus is up to date since this could end up in an overheating issue.

I would also recommend running the Intel(R) Processor Identification Utility to properly identify your Intel(R) processor.

The Intel(R) Processor Identification Utility was developed by Intel(R) Corporation to enable consumers the ability to identify and, in some circumstances, determine if their Intel(R) processor is operating at the correct speed intended by Intel(R) Corporation. You can download this utility at:
http://www.intel.com/support/processors/tools/piu/

@ATF: I actually didn't up the vcore at all to run at 3.2ghz..still at 1.1V in BIOS. I'll post the screenie but 12 hours of ORTHOS overnight looks pretty good temp wise....

EDIT: @Worship: That does sound kinda correct about the one core being a little higher, but who knows. It sounds kinda fishy to me....especially since my BIOS is current..well...according to ASUS anyways....but who knows..hopefully everything will turn out alright. Thank you very much, though, for letting me know what they said...I appreciate it!

Second EDIT: Screenie of 12 Hours ORTHOS @ 3.2Ghz

That's excellent mate, another low vcore cpu

@worshipme, nothing very helpful from Intel, I didn't expect much though tbh, I've seen a similar reply from them before regarding thermal sensors

Hehehe..atleast SOMETHING is ok with my chip...nah nah, jk jk....it's turning out to be ok..my temps are down now..who knows why...maybe the buddha god of intel came down and fixed it ;-) hehehe...when I get the HSF, I'll slowly take 'er up to 4.0ghz and let you all know how it goes.

I'm starting to like this thread. I feel like I'm part of an E8400/3110 elite group :-D

Oi, I'm not that fat

The lowering of the vcore would have gone a long way to lowering your temperatures.

When are you expecting your new cpu cooler to arrive?

Hehehe..yes thanks to all who helped with the temp issue! ;-)

Well, I just purchased the HSF a few hours ago from Newegg...maybe by Friday...otherwise Monday...if I would've gotten my darned pay check sooner...hehehe.

BTW to anyone interested...my batch num on the e8400 is Q811A174. Anyone else that wants to might as well post them too...might be similar..or very different!

Going to try with a slightly lower voltage.

That is kinda high for an "in Windows" reading, what's the bios to get that?

I missed this earlier, good catch.

I have no idea why CPUz is displaying his VID instead iof his vcore.
