Normal running temperature???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, i have my Core 2 duo e6300 oc to 300Mhz, with coretemp i checked and the temps are:

Core1 48º - 50º
Core2 47º - 48º

With the system in windows desktop, just antivirus and messenger.

Are those temps, normal, or should i chaange it back to 266Mhz, until i get a better cooling solution??

Thank you!

They are rather warm for almost idle, but nothing to get worried about. I'm not sure on the Core 2 Duo's normal running temps so i can't comment. Invest in a Zalman CPU cooler and some Artic Silver 5 and you'll notice quite a drop in temperature, plus add some case fans and it will be even greater.

That's way to hot for idle. You should be looking to stay under 55c at load.

Definatly get better cooling and check the mounting of whatever cooling you are using. You didn't leave the vCore on AUTO did you? It could be pumping too much voltage into the CPU.

Oh, and when I say better cooling, I don't mean a Zalman

I have the same problem w/ stock cooling & AS5 on a E6600 (MSI 975x). Core Temp is reporting 48 to 50 degrees at idle at the desktop and it shoots up to 70 to 75 degrees when I'm running two Prime 95s (one per core).

I haven't overclocked the CPU at all yet but I do have the vcore on auto. CPU-Z is reporting a volatage of 1.18 to 1.2 volts. What should I have the vcore set to in the bios instead of auto?

I've tried reseating the stock HSF and it seems to be snug. I do have a Big Typhoon on order but I'm kinda worried since everyone seems to be indicating my temperatures should be much much lower than what I'm getting, even with stock cooling.

Any pointers?

At the moment I have my E6600 OC'd at 3.11GHz[FSB of 345] on stock and I'm getting Idle temps at 46-50 at idle. I need to RMA my Big typhoon then let's see what I'll get. Right now it doesn't seem to be a problem. [BTW, I didn't use AS5 for the thermal paste, I just used whatever was on the Intel's stock cooler, so it should be even lower if I used AS5]

This goes for the thread starter as well, never put your vCore on AUTO. As you increase the FSB it will increase the vCore as well, even if it doesn't NEED it. Use Speedfan or the motherboard program to measure volts as CPUz is not always right.

As to what it should be set on, that depends. I always find the lowest voltage it can take at stock settings before overclocking. For instance, at all stock settings, I left the vCore at AUTO in BIOS and booted the machine. I ran 2 instences of Stress Prime 2004 and PC Probe 2 from ASUS was showing the vCore at 1.28.......just for comparison, I just had it pass a 14 hour period of 2 Stress Prime runs at stock settings at 1.01 volts. obviously, my CPU did not need 1.28v but the board was feeding it to it....and if I had raised my FSB, it would have raised the voltage, just because.

So, as to what you should set your vcore to in BIOS, if you don't feel like spending a week or more finding the baseline voltage, I would set it to 1.15 and see if it's stable, then increase from there.

But defintatly take it off AUTO.......and you don't want to run it over 55c......

Speedfan is showing a COREA voltage of 2.37v and a COREB voltage of 3.70v. I have the BIOS set to 1.21 which is the lowest setting in my bios.

The VID in Core Temp is 1.3250v and CPUZ is now showing a voltage of 1.184v.

Temperatures are still really high (65 to 70 under load, 50 to 55 idle).

I'm beggining to wonder if the airflow in my case is the problem. It's an older model Lian-Li PC-60.
