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

It doesn't matter what is pushing it to 100% load, no program should ever breach the thermal limits of the chip ideally. You are simply not cooling it properly.

I had my q6600 run at 75-80 al day long and temps were not much lower at stock settings, you should aim for 60 max but, i wasn't about to install water cooling when it worked just fine 24/7.
currently my Q9550 maxes at 74-80c occasionally under many hours of stressing, it is a bit cooler being 45nm.
for reference the q6600 was lapped with a N520 and the q9550 is not lapped with an N520.

i think it does matter, this is prime 95, so there must be certain exceptions, the thing is designed to push it to the max, this is a program you would run once or twice to check how stable the overclock is, then its over. no real program would push it like this. and as for cooling it properly, this is the only cooler i have so i guess I really cant improve the cooler due to its design.

i mean its not like its going to run 70 - 80C 24/7. It idles around 40C its just that prime 95 is not a real time program, it loads up the CPU to its limits and the max load temps, like even when playing BF3 the game wont stress the cpu that much. Dont know where the 60C prime 95 taboo is coming from all of a sudden, I thought the TJ max for the chip was around 90C?

Not true. There are several programs that push the CPU just as hard. Prime isn't even all that great for checking stable overclocks. It's just one easy way to get consistent outcomes. IBT will push the CPU to higher temps than Prime 95. Heck, even Folding can push it harder than Prime. Prime is not an exception.

I'm at 1.51V in BIOS. Throw better cooling at it, 80C is horrible for P95.

And OCCT is a much better CPU test. IBT only if you want to see how hot your rig can theoretically get.

What's TJMax set to in HWmonitor?

I know in core temp it was 100 deg. but Intel says the Q6600 is a 90 deg. TJmax so you would run a -10 offset to get more accurate load temps.
Have you taken this in to consideration?

wow! I was under the impression 1.5v is where the q6600 cpu begins to rapidly degrade? But I dont understand why this 80C is horrible for P95 is coming from, is it only for the 65nm / Q6600 Chips? Because a lot of the i7 / EVGA guys here are running their 920's and 930's on the Antec cooling units and we max out our chips around 80C after 12 hrs of P95 running @ 1.4V running 4.2 - 4.4 GHz. In real life the chip never sees beyond the medium - high 60C's so I dont know if this is strictly a q6600 thing?

I hate using OCCT, I used IBT in the past but never found it as stable as P95. But I will try to get a better cooler tho, dont have anything at home atm and tring not to invest any money on cooling it. maybe I will back down the overclock a bit, the thing that annoys me the most is the fact that I need 1.4250 @ vCore to even get it stable in P95. reason for the high temps frown.gif

I think the TJmax is around 100C in HWMonitor, Real Temp was actually giving me temps that were about 10C off, so I am only using HWMonitor for now.

It's the 45nm chips that you limit to 1.4.

65nm 1.5-ish VCore was the accepted upper limit if cooled properly. Some people thought 1.55, but I wanted my chip to last. Mine has been running at 3.6/1.51 for years and is strong as a horse.

People ran them at 1.6-1.65 back in the day, I dunno what happened to those chips.

You can feel free to consider it an exception if you want, but there are games that max out the CPU.

As for other processors at higher temps, simply can't compare them due to the different architecture and different thermal limits.

i mean its not like its going to run 70 - 80C 24/7. It idles around 40C its just that prime 95 is not a real time program, it loads up the CPU to its limits and the max load temps, like even when playing BF3 the game wont stress the cpu that much. Dont know where the 60C prime 95 taboo is coming from all of a sudden, I thought the TJ max for the chip was around 90C?

It loads at 70 something during normal usage ie gaming/VMing, I think i have made the decision to ditch the ElanVital T-10 and get real case maybe a P180 or Bitfenix Aplha Merc and possibly go water.
