Those are some great ways to exercise your CPU, in particular I like the OpenSSL speed test one. That's awesome.

I did indeed play with Speedit.kext and CoreDuoTemp while checking all of this stuff out. A tool called Hardware Monitor will also give you CPU temperature readouts:
I didn't include results from these tools in this article primarily because I was focused on outside case temperature. After all, what matters to your lap is the temperture of the metal against your legs. (grin).
