    Take a more accurate reading using Core Temp but I think you will find the HP one to be quite accurate.

    Thing is though, you really can't trust modern software these days to do a manual job. Most accurate way is to power down the server (very important), take off the heatsink and fan, and lick the CPU. If you feel a burning sensation on your tongue is probably is too hot!

    Is this a BECTA approved method for checking core temps? LOL

    That's more than likely Enhanced Intel® Speedstep Technology in play there, it will lower the FSB and voltage of the chip to reduce power usage.

    64-bit Intel® Xeon® Processor 3.40E GHz, 2M Cache, 800 MHz FSB with SPEC Code(s) SL7ZD, SL7ZK, SL8P4

    Please ensure you take photo's of your injuries. I doubt they'll help much in your legal case, but if you post them up here we'll be sure to get a laugh out of them =P

    What is real temp reporting? If your core temps are still high then you may want to look into a better cooling solution for your server room.
