Since Intel does not seem to want us to know what the correct TJ is for the E8400 it is hard to know exactly what the real temp is.

All that aside, the readings are still about 10C different using any of the temp reading programs such as HWMonitor, CoreTemp, Speedfan and RealTemp.

Thanks for the reply though!
You don't touch settings in RealTemp.

Install and check the temps.

Its the most reliable of them all.

45nm chips will have a lower Tjunction due to cooler running chips unlike the 65nm.
