Default TAT is not showing the real temp! Why?

Hi, I am new on this forum!
Since I install the electric cooler, I can feel by touching the base and the pipe that it is working well and cool! When I run Prime95, the temperature that is display from this cooler is never higher than 36 degrees C.
The Thermal Analysis Tool from Intel show 72 degrees C. Why there such a difference?

Bien venue Francois! Which program is showing you 36? Generally I trust TAT, but for a third opinion you can try CoreTemp.

For a 3.3GHz overclock, 72C doesn't seem that far of a stretch to me. I am at 3.2GHz ish with my Q6600 and I reach above 80C when I am stressing all the cores. I agree with Babrbarossa though, try CoreTemp.

It is not a program that give me the 36 degrees reading, it is the Ultra electric cooler controller that is showing this temp.
I don't know where there sensor is place, I should ask Ultra about this difference...

TAT must be taking the temp from a diode inside the CPU....
I will ask the question to Ultra.

...so 72 degrees on TAT is in the range?

TAT does read from inside- but I would say that 72 might be higher than I'd like it (although I Deathspawner knows what he's talking about). generally they say keep it under 60, I know some people run them a little hotter. You should try the program "CoreTemp" to see what it says for temperatures- maybe also try "speedfan" (both free programs)- I bet speedfan will be even higher- it usually read about seven degrees higher for me, but it reads temperature from a different locus.

Download the new version of speedfan (4.32) If you go to the charts tab, you can monitor both Tcase (CPU) and Tjunction (core0 and core1) which are different cpu temp sensors. Tjunction is supposed to be higher and I have seen it recommended to stay under 65 on Tjunction, and 50 on Tcase.
