Hello Tobias,

I have to admitt, that I never had special interest in any temperatures of
my notebook whilst it was still running 6.2. It just worked.. ;-)

X and T series of the thinkpads are rather different, even the cores are
completely different (I have a dualcore low-voltage version, I assume
yours is running on a dual Pentium m, or?).

But good to know that it works for some people/thinkpads! :-)
