Well I would imagine because Intel rates that cpu at 60.1c on the IHS.
But what ever temperature the cores are at, is the same temperature of the IHS.

I won't run my E6400 past 55c either. But I don't plan on buying a new cpu soon, I plan on keeping this one for a while. And I think Intel knows what they are doing when they set the temperature limit
