Hey there......how about some specs first?

Cpu=Athlon XP 2000+
Overclocked= 1875Mhz 1.80volts
Mem bus=150Mhz CAS2

Watercooling with 2 rads, both rads and water tank our outside (35-48 degress)

My comments:

Regradless of where my cpu speed and voltage is at my cpu temp always idles around 80F. I find it odd that there is temp differnece bewteen [email protected] volts and [email protected] volts.

At night I can feel my waterblock and it must be around 45F. Now the fun part, if I open my window which is next to my computer, my cpu temp drops down to 64F.

My Question:

Is my cpu temp really 80F or is it lower around 70F and the sensor is just off by that much? Ideas?

Also, how can I get a temp probe next to my cpu core if Im using a shim?
