Re: Reading CPU Temperature
Uh.. yeah? Your point being??? The Athlon64 Barton core has a CRITICAL TEMP of 85 celcius. That means, at 85 celcius, the silicon wafer (R4 silicon) breaks down and you lose transistor series, thus causing damage to the CPU. A Barton should not pass 75C, not really even get close to 65C. 55C and below at idle is good, 60-65C FULL LOAD. Barton cores and picky and run differently at higher heat levels. They get very laggy, and the transistors don't empty as fast as their should. They get voltage "clotting" which causes a LOT of latency and lag.
