I have a linksys wireless adapter with speedbooster and noticed a change in cpu temps when I disabled the wireless connection. The temps went from 50 deg C to 43 deg C when I disabled my wireless connection. I enabled it and monitored the temps with Everest and noticed that it rose 7 deg C; is this normal?

Any CPU load after re-enabling the connection. Programs may start to update after they see an internet connection, thus putting load on the cpu, in turn rising the cpu temp.

That sounds like some wiggy temp sensors to me. An increase of 7C is a lot if it's only doing updates. I dunno offhand, but you probably wouldn't get much more than that even when going from 0 to full load.

What frequency is your CPU and your wireless device ? Try to enable CPU spread spectrum. Maybe the wireless is interfering with your temperature sensors.
