    Most AMD motherboards still measure CPU temps using the socket thermistor. That's why they report temps that may seem inordinately high.

    In my experience, socket temps will, on average, be 20-30C higher than die temps, and evaporator temps will be 15-25C lower.

    My 2500+ @ 2.1v had socket temps of 15C and evap temps of -30C, and a final die temp of -15C. My P4 uses its on-die diode to read CPU temps and at 1.65v its temps are -40C evap, and -27C on-die.
