    Newbuild PC with Rivatuner 2.08 and C2Dtemp plugin. It shows the CPU cores as about 10° - 15° Celcius too low (lower temp readout than the temp in the room!!). Mobo is Gigabyte P35 DS3R version 2.1 and the CPU is E6850.
    My own PC has a gigabyte P35 DS4 Ver1.1, CPU is the same (E6850), and there is the temp readout OK.
    I run Rivatuner 2.07 in my own system, and the new system uses Rivatuner 2.08, both systems uses the same version of C2D plugin. I'm not sure if the error is in Rivatuner or in Plugin or in BIOS for the DS3R mobo?
    Can this be fixed?

    same here with an e6550.

    this has noting to do with the motherboard. it depends just on the cpu and the temp reading program, the c2d plugin in this situation.

    guess the c2d plugin is using a different TCC activation threshold (tjmax), thus resulting in lower temp readings.

    you can always use the offset feature in hw monitor to adjust your final temp display!

    No problems here with an E6600.

    Ok, thank you guys for the answers. :)
    I will adjust it so it reads the same as in BIOS.

    It works fine with my E6600.

    I suggest you compare it to what CoreTemp reads, then set an offset value to make it line up with CoreTemp.
