Q9550 & Corsair H60

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey, i just bought a Q9550 & Corsair H60, i installed it on wednesday.

Had a few questions about the temps.
When i run my cpu on idle there is a pretty big difference between the temps on the cores:

Is that normal, or is it possible that my cooler isnt making full contact or bad thermal paste, i used the paste that came with the cooler.

Anyway on 100% load the temps line up pretty close:

I looked what the temps should be on the Corsair H60 here:

http://www.hardwareheaven.com/review...rformance.html

And my temps are pretty much the same, only they are using the I7 instead of a quad core, I7's are hotter cpu's right?
So shouldn't my temps be lower?

I'm all new with this so i can have it wrong.

Anyway's i did a 10 min stress test with real temps & Prime 95:

The TJMax temps what are they exactly?
I read on this site that it was:

A sensor on your CPU. When the maximum temperature is reached, this will throttle or shutdown your CPU.

I think that is a little weird becouse the intel site says it can become 71.4°C
and the hottest tjmax temp was 67.3.

That difference between core temperatures is normal for these CPU's..

Q9550 has a Tjmax = 100C and that is absolute max temperature for cores..

Now for safe 24/7 usage keep your core temperatures under 75C at all time..

Keep your Vcore under 1.40V at all time (shown in CPU-Z under full load)..


CHEERS..

I think i need to replace my case, becouse of the H60 i needed to place my back fan so that it would suck air from outside the case into the radiator for better temps.

Only that fan was my only fan sucking the warm air out of my case, currently its open.

I will need a new case, does anyone know a case that has fans on the top of the case, so all the warm air can escape.

I only have 3 fans free on my motherboard, all molex cables are in use.

Thanks!
