Core temp seems to be using (fluctuating) around 20% load on both of my cpu cores. I have an Opty 165@2710. A8N5X MB. Anyone else see anything similar?

CoreTemp uses 20% of your CPU time? Doesn't make sense. Where you gettin' your info?

Task manager and speedfan both show the CPU use between 10-18%. I just noticed that it is not actually coretemp itself that is using the cycles, it's explorer.exe when coretemp is loaded. ??? Weird. I quit coretemp and explorer goes to 00.

Coretemp keeps a log. If you don't use the log, I suggest turning off the logging feature. That should decrease CPU usage significantly.
