Max safe temperature for E6600? - Page 2

post #11 of 27
i run about 66C load, is that ok on e6300?

Thread Starter 
Asus P5W DH Deluxe mobo in an aluminum mid tower case...I plan to buy the Big Typhoon VX when it's more widely available (namely off of newegg.com). I read somewhere that the regular Big Typhoon is not for C2D, but works on other 775 CPUs. Not sure if it would work or not, just don't want to take the chance. Anybody have first hand knowledge that they work ok on the C2D?

And just my 2 cents, but the stock HSF is leaps and bounds better than previous stock coolers (like my old Athlon 1800 stock cooler). They've come a long way.

Users of Intel Core 2 Duo processors please be aware that temperature's of 85C are not acceptable on the processor core, neither on the CPU installation socket.

With Core 2 Duo the sensor that is detected is the on board socket sensor. This temperature (depending on system configuration) will usually be about 10C lower than the actual on die temperature.

To determine your CPU operating temperature (Core) please use the Intel Thermal Analysis Tool. This application has the ability to receive data from the CPU core sensors for both cores, this is very accurate (unlike most sensors). This is because the algorithm is more sophisticated

Intel Pentium 4 processor default sensors are on die, Core 2 Duo are not. Due to this fact people are getting confused between temperatures.

Rated Operating Thermal Level of Intel Core 2 Duo processors is 60.1C, this can be acceptably breached if voltage is within a certain range of default.

A temperature of 85C will be causing very slow damage to parts of the chip. However the shut down temperature is measured using the onboard sensor and therefore will not shut the system down unless the socket temperature breaches about 66C.
A custom BIOS may allow the system to switch to the "on die sensor", then your system would not boot/operate if it's processor temperature is at 85C

These processors are not the equivalent of Core Duo/Dothan which are designed to operate at up to 100C

yeah mine is at 52-58C idle using TAT

that surely is too high?

If your processor is a Core 2 Duo Desktop (Allendale/Conroe) then yes a temperature range of 52-58C is not "very good".
However the chip itself will not be receiving damage at that point, that happens about 80C+ (circuitry and transistor failure's).

If possible I would recommend taking action to keep your CPU temperature within acceptable levels

Thermal Control 1 and 2 should be enabled for safety at those temperature's

The 65nm process has a decent ability to deal with high temperature, however it is still not suited to that temperature range (i.e. 70C+)

Yeah, I'd look into cooling that sucker down, bicolor.

I may need to get a New CPU cooler. But I dont want to splash out too much extra money on this rig. So I mite leave it. The ammount of money I could spend to get my PC to run that little bit better.. Im going to stop myself now.

52 C Load. Maybe thats not the on die temp.

If you find yourself with some free time, you could try reseating the hsf with less thermal compound, if this doesn't help it could be something else, like air temperature

But its worth a shot..

Rated Operating Thermal Level of Intel Core 2 Duo processors is 60.1C,

While I am certianly not going to state the "safe" temp of these CPUs is 85c, the stated 60.1c temperature threshold is stated by Intel to be measured at the center of the IHS. Given that, the must be some variance as there is little chance that the center IHS can be 60c if the Core is 60c as well.

I have seen the 85c number thrown out a lot but never been able to get concrete proof of it.


Regardless, the threadstart is quoting triple digit temperatures, are we assuming these are in F? As no one has acted shocked at 90 degree idle temps yet

Uhh guys he said 80 F not 80C...
