99 degrees on core1 Q6600 D:

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi OCN

My Q6600 pc as been working for me for a long time but lately the CPU is getting to the 99's on the 1st core and an average of 70's for the 4th

I'm using a stock heatsink (yea duh, that's why) and it's not very dusty; I'm using Noctua NT-H1 thermal paste which is meant to be good.

I need a new heatsink, but I don't know which one to get and what's good for me.

I'm down in Australia and I'll be purchasing from this store: the selection of heatsinks is linked to:

So, which one?

I won't be spending Over $30 on a heatsink, just need proper temps not frozen CPU (like most of u have, u guys need woolen jackets for your CPU's)

Anyone?

I don't think I'll be OC-ing, I've only got 2GB of RAM (2x 1GB DDR2 modules)....

I'll consider the TX3, though the 212+ is a little OVERKILL for me.

Has the chip just recently started getting this hot or has it always been like this? 72c is the thermal limit for these chips so you may be damaging the chip if it's really getting this hot. Have you tried re seating the heat sink? Is the fan still working?
