Default Heat issue solved? - 03-24-2009, 03:00 AM

A coworker just got a brand new Mini 9 with the stock 1GB ram and a 16gb HD. He has windows xp installed and I told him to install coretemp. Mine is a refurb Mini 9 with G.Skill 2gb ram and a 16gb HD. Both of us started our machines at the same time. After booting up completely his computer's idle temperature was 10c lower than mine. His idle temp was 25c (with coretemp beta .95 which has a tjmax of 90c and 0 offset) mine was 35c.

Anyone one else want to post their configurations and coretemp temps?
