is 80C too high for a q6600 running @ load during prime 95?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
well, is it? I am overclocking a q6600 B3 winch had a VID of 1.25V, running Prime 95 now at 3.2GHz @ at 1.42750 vCore and its around ~ 1.36 after vdroop. During Prime 95 the temps peaked around 77C - 80C according to HW Monitor, The CPU VTT is around 1.3V everything else is auto. I am using this cooler http://www.zalman.co.kr/eng/product/Product_Read.asp?idx=164

I want this for 24/7 use, usually for gaming and general computer stuff.

Yes, that is way too hot, especially for 3.2GHz. I was never that hot even at 3.8.

70 is about the max I ever wanted to see for the Q6600

You want it under 71C. That cooler is not designed for overclocked Quads.

Yes it is too hot, also if I remember correctly you shouldn't need that much voltage for 3.2GHz.

yeah that's pretty toasty but kinda expected with that cooler.

I had a Q6600 @ 3.6 w/ 1.42v and the Zalman CNPS9500 and would come real close to 80 during prime95.

Hey Thanks for the input smile.gif but Its a B3 not the G0, Anything in the 1.3V range and the thing seems ti crash within 15 minutes. confused.gif

Also when you guys mention it should be under 70C, do you mean while in Prime 95 or regular use? I mean this is Prime 95 at load, regular use and gaming should never see it that high?

Any Tips would be appreciated, Currently in the BIOS I have the vCore set at 1.425v and the VTT(FSB voltage?) set at 1.3V.

I guess I have a really good chip, I could get 3.2 at around 1.25 volts and 3.6 at 1.42v.

It should be under/at 70 regardless what you are doing.

Should also ask though, what are you using to measure the temp? Some programs need you to modify the TJmax for the proc to calculate the temp

Prime95 you should be under 60C honestly at only 3.2. My Q6600 (in my rigs section) doesn't break 60C at 3.6GHz on P95 with an H5O.

Even in Prime 95? This pushes the CPU to the 100% load, I dont think another "real time" program could bring the temps as high? as I said I was using HW Monitor, a little while agi the temps dropped to the 69C range and stayed around 70C for around 30mins and now its going in the 78C mark again. frown.gif

Seriously? Bud Are you considering the Volts and not just the MegaHurtzz? I mean c'mon I am running it 1.42V on a crappy Zalman cooler, the CPU is not a G0 tongue.gif
