I've heard conflicting info on what temps are considered "too high", so I was wondering if anyone could straighten that out for me once and for all.

I have a conroe e6600 with a mounted Thermaltake Big Typhoon, using Everest to measure the heat my idle temps are "CPU": 35 degrees, Cpu core #1: 45degrees, CPU Core #2: 46degrees.

I've been following this guide, that probably most people have already read here :
http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardw...ict197995.html

So at the moment my FSB is 333mhz and my voltages are:

1. MCH Voltage (vMCH) to 1.55V
2. FSB Voltage (vFSB) to 1.40V
3. SB Voltage (vICH) by +0.1V from default-lowest value
4. Set CPU Voltage (vCore) for the following CPU

Using a Asus P5W DH Deluxe and 7950GX2, 2gig corsair 8500 xms2 C5

Well those temps you show are fine. However its the Load temps that make the difference and not the Idle temps...Put your CPU under a 100%Load and tell us the temps you get.

Generally keep that chip under 80c...There Thermal limit is around 80-85c.

Yeh that sounds about right, when a few people were saying keep the temps under 50 deg I had trouble comprehending it, considering my temp on the second GPU in the 7950GX2 is right now at 74 degrees, and that's just idle!

So basically I feel more confident now, I'll run prime and see what I get.

The temp ENT mentioned is a bit too high. Using TAT don't let them go over 60C under full load

Yeah... don't do over 60 with Intel Thermal Analysis tool or CoreTemp... it really isn't difficult... I hit 52 full load w/Orthos.

The Thermal Specification before damage to the Conroe CPU is 80c. However obviously keep it generally below 60c.

It can take more heat due to its fabrication process.

Intel told me that 61.4C is the max safe

60c is the limit for a C2D at stock settings....a heavily overclocked C2D should be kept under 55c assuming the voltage guidelines are followed as well. Something I would highly recomend on air cooling.

While the CPU may not throttle until 80c or so, this is in no way a safe operating temperature. Throttling is there to prevent sudden, catastrophic failure....it does nothing to stop the slow destruction and degradation of higher temperatures.

If the CPU will be replaced in 12 months or so, 1.5v and 80c temps are still a gamble....unlikely, but you roll the dice. However, if you wish to get more life out of your CPU, keep it under 55c and 1.35v on air cooling.

According that guide, E6600 automatically sets your vCore to 1.3525V at stock so thats your keep<1.35V gone, and 55c is very low headroom, a lot of people I know who have E6400/6600 are getting 50c at stock settings so why is there no difference there?

Also the article says that:

"Note2: Delta of Idle-Load reported by Core Temp should not exceed by 26°C "

Does this mean whatever your idle temp is + 26c is your max cpu temp?

Well the vcore is at 1.4 so that's only .5v more than what you said, but I'm not sure how safe the other voltages are, should I reduce those?

1. MCH Voltage (vMCH) @ 1.55V
2. FSB Voltage (vFSB) @ 1.40V
3. SB Voltage (vICH) @ +0.1V from default-lowest value
4. Vcore @ 1.4volts
