Hello all, very new to OSX at all so please bear with me
This is just the thread I was looking for. I have installed osx86 from the 10.6.1-10.6.2 hazard disc, with not much problem really. Took a few shots to get the right kext, but everything appears to be working.
I have the E6400 which has a TJ max of 85C unlike most of the 100C chips here. Voodoomonitor (hardware monitor 4.85 gives error on start, will test previous) reads my chip still at 100C. I can manually set the TJ max in my fakesmc.kext info.plist to 85, which seems to show the same temps I get in windows. (check pics please) Is changing the fakesmc value to 85 just cosmetic or is it really changing the OS settings to read it at 85. When I manually set voodoomonitor CPU-I max override to 85C and get the same readings as istat.
I have voodoopstatev4 and voodooo monitor installed, and my correct states are shown for this proc (3 states 1.6-2.13ghz) nothing seems hot at all, my fans run the same as in windows.
When the TJ max on the fakesmc was set to 100, it was reading 55C temps in istat, but after change to 85C for TJ max is appears to read 36-39 which is what I get in windows like stated. You can see the default TJ max for voodoo monitor is also 100. Is that cosemtic? Very sorry for the long post but im new to this.

Thanks guys, Ive been reading the forums for about 5 days now since I decided to install this again.
EDIT> I wanted to say that even if I still open up voodoomonitor, it still reads 100C for TJMAX, is that just the programs default or is that still saying that i'm still at 100C TJ MAX?
@Jbolted - Same here man hah ive been trying to figure out how to change my CPU TJ max for the OS because mine is different at 85C not 100C like most it appears. OSX is a lot of fun, I like opensuse as well.
