    ...Why can't I edit the first post?
    We've had spammers sneak back and throw a link to their crap into a post after they think no one will notice. Because of this we've been forced to limit the time period for editing a post.

    I updated your top post with the new information. :cheers:

    Why is the new version of Core Temp not showing me the TDP and TCaseMax readings? The old version .94 beta is showing me these readings?

    ps..I forgot to add also that when I ran it it said something about driver not found and then went into an endless loop and I had to reboot to close it. I will try to redownload it again...

    Can you please post a screenshot of Core Temp and A64TCaseMax screenshot side by side for my comparison? Also a Register Dump (from CPUz) would be usefull as well.

    If anyone is having problems with Core Temp crashing on them, please look at the appropriate thread and post there your problem and system spec. I think this way it will be very effective at getting to the bugs faster.

    Great tool- wonderful multi-core monitor with credible readings. Mobiles now too!

    Speaking of which, I ran it on mine and I think there is a glitch in the Delta Tjunction Max:

    attachment.php?attachmentid=25287&stc=1&d=1208962705

    Looks like it should be about 40F. At work right now & will post it later in your website if you prefer.

    That's an interesting observation, I'll have a look at how to resolve this problem.
  • edited Apr 2008
    T_C, the new version is giving a funky reading for the processor in my laptop. It's a T7400, but Core Temp is calling it a "Mobile Core 2 Duo L71200". Weird, huh?

    Hmm, does that happen every time you start Core Temp or was it a one time thing?
    If you happens all the time, could you also send me a txt dump file from CPU-z?

    Thanks

    Yeah, it happens every time I open Core Temp.

    OK, I'll attach it to this post for you, T_C. :)
