How hot should my NB be?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok im going to repost this here because. I dont think I posted in the correct place last time.

Is 60C under load ok for my NB? Usually it doesn't go that high but it did peak there. Its usually around 55 under normal stress. Its at 1.35v. Stock is 1.25v.

I've been trying to find a sweetspot for my setup. After much research and trial/error, I seem to have narrowed it down to my NB voltage holding me back.

I just have a vanilla P6N mobo with a passive aluminum cooler, not the platinum with the copper NB heatsink and pipes

60C is fine. I wouldn't start looking into cooling unless it hit 80C.
