E6300 CPU Temp

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I currently have the setup on my user spec. I am having problems with the temp of the cpu. on idle it will stay at 40 - 45 when at full load (after playing company of heroes) it will stay at 60. Im currently using the stock cooler and fan that came with the CPU. I did however took the cooler 3 times to check the termal compound and didnt see anything wrong. The MB also reads at 30 - 40 with load. (room temp was around 20 - 25)

I took the cover or the case and tested with a fan and the mb went to 27 - 30 with load and the cpu only went to 55 with load.

What would be the cause of this? should i get an aftermarket cooler? if so what would be a good candidate? (please take into consideration of the case - x-qpack)

Generally speaking, getting an aftermarket cooler will most likely decrease your overall temps. If you have the extra money laying around, get a better cooler, especially if you plan to overclock the cpu. Although, I'm not too familiar with your case, I would suggest getting a AC Freezer 7 Pro. Its affordable and will perform much better than stock.

Regarding your temps staying at 60 after playing games, do you have your smart fan option enabled in your bios? Somtimes the board will slow down your fan speed until a certain temperature is reached before it goes to full blast to cool down the cpu. I would suggest you find out if that's maybe why your temps are staying so high.

That temps arent that bad for a stock cooler. With my Zalman CNPS7000-alcu I had like 65C under load. Which is comparable with a stock cooler (maybe a little more quiet)

If you think 60C is to high I suggest you get a new fan.
I replaced mine with a Zalman CNPS9500 LED and now my load temps never get higher then 40C

The Aspire Q-pack, IIRC, is the small cube case is it not? That will give you very limited options for cooling as it has very limited space. The smaller space will cause for higher temps as well.

You will want to get an aftermarket cooler but will have to be very careful due to the size constraints, obviously you can't fit a Big Typhoon or a Tuniq Tower inside there. You may want to look at a XP-120 as it lays flat, it should fit fairly well and provide good cooling.

The Qpack has only a single 120MM exhaust fan on it as well, this will certainly cause some cooling issues. I would recomend modding the side window to hold a 120mm fan as well to get some cold air and good airflow inside.

Load never higher than 40? Even the guys on water don't get that low temps.. .LOL (measured with TAT or Core Temp that is, which report quite a bit higher than the others)

Anyone knows anything about this cooler:
Zalman CNPS8000 Ultra Quiet High Performance CPU Cooler (AMD 754 / 939 / 940 / Intel 775) $44.95

It looks like a nice sized cooler that could do the job. I'll see if I can find some reviews:

Looking good!

Just make sure it'll fit your mobo and case

I checked in the bios after a good gaming session and a quick reboot. Could be higher ill check with coretemp

Ive read some bad things about that Zalman CNPS8000, it didnt outperform stock according to a magazine here.

EDIT: Coretemp reads 48C under load

Hi,

I went to the store and checked out the AC Freezer 7 Pro it looks really nice but still would not fit the case unless i start cutting stuff.. I only had the system for a week I did however add a 80 mm fan to get more fresh air.

Now what i did was to go into bios. took off the cpu fan control so its now running at full all the time. I also went took off the auto configuration for the cpu. I manually set the v from auto to the lowest which was 1.225v. To my surprise with this setting my temp went down to 46 for the cpu after running the 3dmark06 and after a game of company of heroes it only went 47-48. So now i am very happy

that AC Freezer 7 Pro looks really good.. mayber after some time i will start playing with case mods.

Thanks for all the ideas!
