Safe E6600 Temps!?!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i'm running at 2.79 on 1.3 Vcore

and my temps in TAT are 50 full load
but only 30 in the BIOS ... what's that about?
Who do i trust?

( i think that BIOS is only about 80% load but still)
Brrrrrrrr...

how do you know the bios is 80% load?

i thought it was idle.

and TAT temps are teh actual cores. im pretty sure the BIOS reads off the IHS

ok fair enough, the idle temps in TAT are 39-40 and the bios temps are still 10 degrees lower.
what should i stay below at full load? 55?
Also, i am currently only usnig one fan on my RAD and not AS5... these things i will correct shortly.
i'm also now on stock volts (1.325) and running at 2.84

Holy crap..temps are so high. Anyway, basically ignore the BIOS temps and you're good. Use CoreTemp and/or TAT. Stay below 60.1ºC

I'm running 3.4 @ either 1.35 or 1.45 vcore...I forgot. idle temps 45-47 load is around 60. Highest I saw was 63 but my Tuniq is mounted incorrectly now. But will be fixed soon. IMO, those temps are pretty high with less than 3.0 on stock vcore.

You are only at 2.79ghz at 1.3 vcore? Maybe check your settings again, because that seems a little odd to me. I'm at 3.4ghz with only 1.2 vcore. 60 C seems to be the safety cap, btw. You could probably push it a bit further, but I wouldn't. To be safe, don't go higher than 55C load.

is your system stable? the most i could do with a 1.2vcore was load the menu screen on farcry. at 3.4ghz i had to bump the vcore settings in the bios from 1.2 to 1.375.

and to danny, 1.45v is kinda a lot for just 3.4ghz. im at 3.65ghz and i have a vcore setting of 1.425 (~1.38v after droop) for stability.

what is everyone's cooling setup?
