Use P95 or Orthos with Small FFT test.
88c under load isn't all that bad???

I wouldn't expect to see anything over 55c on a non-overclocked C2D processor. Something is definately going on, and if you can't find it, it's time to find somebody who can.........

As to the original question... CPU temp means very little when it comes to a multi-core cpu. The # everybody pays attention to is the core temp.
