Normal Temperatures? - Page 2

Core 3: 42 C
Are these temperatures normal? I'm most worried about core 3, it seems to be running much hotter than the others.
first thing, idle temps tell us nothing, we need load temps?
what country are you in? as obviously if you are in a hot country and your ambient temp (room temp) is in the high 20's.C then your idle temps are ok.
or if the ambient is 10.C then yes they are high, you get the idea?

run prime95 for 30 mins and use realtemp or coretemp, to monitor temps.
then post the highest temp recorded
then we can advise you properly

also perfectly normal to have different temps over the 4 cores.
my Q6600 has 10.C between the coolest and hottest core

If you do, you should get some MX-4, it's a lot better than AS5!

But, imo, if you've been running Prime95 for the last 1-1/2 hours, and 55C is your highest temp, your just fine! Nothing to worry about with temps like that! It can handle a good amount more!

Currently it's been running for an hour and a half, these are the maximum temperatures:
Core 0: 54
Core 1: 46
Core 2: 45
Core 3: 50
These temperatures seem very high to me, I'm contemplating taking off the heatsink tonight and reapplying AC5, do you guys think this is a good idea?
is it overclocked at all? also what cooler are you using?
a Q9550 is ok upto the mid 80's, so you are fine

I'm worried about this, because I had planned on overclocking it to about 3.4 GHz., Do you guys think I can OC it that much with these kind of temps stock?

dont you read your thread?
you are fine upto 80.C, so you could overclock it.
also dont forget, stress testing is extreme, day to day running will be 10-15.C cooler.
you should be able to get to 3.2 to 3.4ghz easily enough
just dont forget to unlink the ram (this means leave it at stock speed) so it doesn't interfere with the cpu overclock
