e6300 temperatures?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am building myself a Core 2 Duo rig ( just received my e6300)
Anyways, i currently also have a Pentium 4 3GHz with HT and in the counttry i am in, the ambient temperatures in my room can go from ~20 to 40 during the day ( withouth the AC on).

My Pentium 4 (with stock cooling and no OC'ing) sometimes went up to ~100degrees at times according to Speedfan (that's when it shuts down the PC and I have to clean the cooler), and now, i have never seen it go below 52degrees Celsius (i only use speedfan). But i read on websites that running a processor at over 65 degrees is pretty much a death warrant for the cpu.

So i wanted to ask, will my e6300 survive for long, if I overclock it to 2.8GHz or more ?
Could you also tell me the max temperatures for the e6300?

Hiya!

Yup, Djibouti will get on the warm side. Since you are in a rather HOT climate I would back-off the OC until you can keep the CPU below 55C on full load. I think that is a cautious standard, but it is better to be safe than sorry. If you are willing to you could do some lapping and iof course there is air-flow managment with 120mm fans.

IMHO I would not let it idle over 45 and load over 55. (E6300)

Thx for the info, looks like Oc'ing will be have to be put off till i can get some fans spinning. The only reason i could get my gpu to OC over 10% was by putting a second fan on top of the old one.

BTW, Speedfan says my PC is running at 85degrees C. lol i will check my bios later

Use TAT for looking at your C2D temps. Its way more accurate that speedfan. It measures the temp inside the core. Let me find a link. For when you get your e6300. You could run the C2D at Stock speeds and it will still be fast, but i'm sure it will surevive, just buy an aftermarket heatsink and you should be fine.

Well, I haven't yet built the machine, so i can't check the temps.
But, while i was looking at the intel heatsink (while agitated) I kind of spread a bit of the thermal paste! will it be that big of a problem?

Perhaps, any aberations in the origainal pad could cause some issues. Many people here have simply removed the stock pad and used AS5 instead, it is what I have done each time. Also, considering the climate that you live in any potential drops in thermal dissipation could cause a headache.

In this case I would remove the stock pad and use AS5.

I would reccomend removing the Stock thermal compound that they Pre-apply and use a better one such as AS5 and that can dramatically help.

I can get AS5 for 11.5$ so i can get some. however, i can get the AS5 performance cooling paste, AS adhesive performance cooling paste, and artic silver ceramique paste.
which one is the best?
