Safe core temps for x6800 Conroe - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
looking at it now...I am running two instances of prime 95, one on each core, and I am sitting at 49 - 50 C per core...not bad considering full load...I am going to let it run all night and see if we are stable..,...so far the stats are:
multi x 13
voltage: 1.3
ram timings: 4-4-4-4-12 T2 @ 2.1 volts

lets see how we do...those temps cannot be bad for full load!

1 - Is the IHS actually flat? Some people have had the unfortunate luck of getting ones that are slightly concave, meaning your heat sink doesn't sit nicely on the IHS and that will certainly hurt your temps. If it is slightly concave, you can consider lapping it a bit.

2 - On a lot of the dual cores in general, the cores themselves don't make great contact with the IHS on the inside. Thus, some people just pop it off and attach the heat sink directly to the bare cores. Of course, this is *very* risky, as you can easily chip a core or otherwise damage your chip, so this is done at your own risk.

Either will likely void your warranty and both are at least a bit risky, but both can also explain your high temps, and could help alleviate them.
It was my understanding that all Intel chips had the IHS soldered on.

Removing it would require using a heat gun hot enough to melt the solder and in the process potentially ruining the chip.

AMD chips, on the other hand, are quite easy to go naked.

I'd recommend a good lap job and leave the IHS on.

You Understanding is correct. The IHS for Intel cant be removed without killing the Die in most cases.

Interesting - I didn't even know that, I hadn't had a chance to look to hard at them yet. Good to know!

Well, you could do like some guy over at XS.org did when he removed the IHS from his P4, cut off the glue, set it into the slot (IHS is still on, but without HSF), turn it on for a little time, turn off, twist IHS a bit untill you can feel it moving, put it in again and turn it on, keep doing this procedure untill it's off.
When it's off just scrape off the "solder" with your fingernail, but do this as effective as possible.

BTW. If this makes any damage Overclock.net nor me is responsible for this.
Kudos to XS.org for letting us know this.

That is correct....no reason to use more voltage than you need.

That sounds more like a "when" situation than an "if" situation. I would not recomend you try to remove the IHS......especially since you have really good temps, 44c load is pretty good. Of course, once you start upping the FSB it will go up some.

My 6700 runs at about 40c on Stress Prime and it is at 270FSB and just 1.08v with this POS 9500.....

I think those temps arent bad for 3.46GHz tbh, was it stable at those settings.

The Manual said something about over 1.35V, keep under 55c and under 1.35V (What is stock for C2D's?) keep under 60c load. I dont understand how this quite works? And why are Intel chips hotter than AMD's but overclock more, is it because they require little increase in voltage to gain a higher FSB?

Depends on your definition of STOCK. Intel shows a voltage range from 0.85-1.3525. What the CPU runs at with the setting at AUTO is also different usually depending on board and individual CPU, and of course, AUTO will increase the voltage as the FSB is increased.

I would further suggest that 55c or less is desirable for any overclocked C2D up to 1.4v...after that, you should be looking for something under 40c, the lower the better to minimize the damage and extend the life of the CPU.
