Yea wolfdales aren't exactly famous for having good thermal sensors. Interesting seems like a common problem it's everywhere... Well what matters is it's stable and far away from the max temp (72c?). Might have to edit my sig, my hyper 212 got lost in delivery so I got a refund . Cooler recommendations for E8400 overclocking which don't use push-pins please (as many as possible). 3dmark06 cpu score at stock speed is 2828marks.
