For every generation of Intel's processor you'd need to source a particular version of Intel's BT or P95 otherwise you see an error in your readings and/or you get absurd temps/numbers.

Which Haswell do you have? If you've overclocked on it, please make sure you've got ample airflow in your chassis.

I have a i7-4770 (non-K). No OC obviously. As to IBT, I don't think they have ever had a version update, have they? I have ver 2.54 and that has not changed in years.
The CPU is used and runs fine, but seems to run hotter than I expected. So I wanted to run a stress test to see if it passed and temps stayed withing reason.
