New Browser reaches Beta II

IE8 Beta2 ReleasedMicrosoft have made available the second beta of Internet Explorer 8, and the new browser has quite a few new features and is compatible with Windows Vista, XP and Server 2003/2008. New functionality additions include:

Visual Search
Search is one of the most frequent and important things you do online. The new Internet Explorer 8 Search Box takes results to a whole new  level by adding graphics and images, helping you find exactly what you're looking for, quickly and easily.

Suggested Sites
If you love that site, try this one. That's the idea behind Internet Explorer 8's new Suggested Sites feature. At your request, Internet Explorer 8 can use your browsing history to suggest other sites you may like or find useful. It's another way that Internet Explorer 8 helps you utilize the Web to its full potential. 

Improved Performance
Right from the start you'll notice that pages open and load faster than ever before. Plus with powerful new features like Accelerators and Web Slices, Internet Explorer 8 gives you the ability to get more done, more quickly.

Automatic Crash Recovery
Web site crashes are now isolated to individual tabs rather than entire browser windows, meaning when a site crashes on one tab, you don't lose the rest. And Internet Explorer 8 will automatically recover the lost tab once it has identified the problem. You can surf with peace of mind knowing that Internet Explorer 8 is the most reliable version of Internet Explorer available. 

Web Slices
Web Slices puts you in control of the information you care about most. Now you can subscribe to specific content within a page and monitor things like auction items, sports scores, entertainment columns, weather reports, and more. Internet Explorer 8 automatically delivers updated information directly to a Web Slice in your Favorites Bar, all without leaving the page you're on.

what is the room ambient? i would tihnk 32C would be a little too low?

but realtemp is better for the 45nm quads

Yea thats what ive heard, my current ambient temps are aprox 22'c

with temps showing

Real Temp - 35, 34, 35, 37
Everest - 44, 47, 44 ,44

Note that i have been playing CSS for the last hour or so therefore it is a little warmer i guess

What you think mate?

EDIT: By the way these temps are now on a 3.6Ghz OC and not really much of a temperature difference hehe

try coretemp and see where that lyes

but from what u have said, 3.6ghz, i would assume everest is right?

I've checked with 5 programs running and all have been pretty close to each other except RealTemp coming in around 10 degs lower at idle and about 7 - 9 degs lower and load.

My mate checked with a 45nm quad and found roughtly the same thing.


Dunno what the deal with RealTemp is.

Given a few minutes a cooler will get a gpu / cpu down to idle temps so gaming prior to the test shouldnt make a difference.

OC with minimal Vcore increase should keep the temps low. 3.6 on air is nice, i hit that with my E6600. Any higher and i would say its time to add the water :)

Sensing apps will never give perfect figures so using them as a guide is best.

Yea thats what i been doing im using everest atm as it is showing the temps the highest, and then using he lower ones as an average i dont want to go past 60'c does that sound about the limit for a Q9450?

Apparently your good until 70. So if it peaks to 70 during 24 hours of stress testing then I would probably stop there.

Stress it to get max temps.

The problem is you will never get the same CPU saturation during most uses so you should never see stress temps in real apps.
