e6600 running too hot!?!?!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded to c2d 6600 from a 3.4c, and i clocked the 6600 to 3.6 ghz with the p5w dh deluxe. The temp. idle around 37c, load is around 68-69c and it could go to 72 max . Is it safe with those temp for 24/7? Also, what the safe range for a 6600?

For the cooling i use the TTBT with upgrade fm121 fan on full on the cpu, and 2 120mm fan and a 25cm fan for the intake of my armor case and one 120mm act as output. My room temp is at 25c if that help.

Thank

You want under 60C at all time. Thats a little too hot for you

Are you sure you installed your cooling correctly?
You shouldn't be getting those load temps with the cooling that you have.

the cpu might be concave. Lap it maybe?

I'm new to overclocking. What does it mean to lap a CPU?

You sand the IHS with extremely fine sandpaper, to a near-mirror finish, so that it is 100% super-duper flat. This means you get the best possible contact between IHS and HS.

How much thermal paste did you use?

And did you screw the BT on tight?

When i first installed my BT temps where same as with stock cooler, but i tighted it down REAL tight, and temps dropped by almost 10c.

And TBH, 'Optical Drive' needs to be removed from system specs and replaced with 'cooling'.

Well Those temps are too high as stated. With that CPU you want it under 60c.

However something for you to consider/Check are the following.

1. The Heatsink tigh enough and make full contact with the CPU
2. Did you apply thermal compound..If so try re-applying it after cleaning off the old compound.

Arnic, wait a second. Absolutely do NOT use Intel TAT to monitor your load temps. I had the exact same problem as you are having with my E6700 a few weeks ago.

You can't find your LOAD temps with the Intel TAT monitor because for some reason when you click load on TAT it loads about 10% harder than any program you can run on your PC. When I was overclocking my Conroe I was getting low idle temps (your idle temps are great by the way) of about 40C but I couldn't get the load temps under 65C using TAT. I thought to myself 'there is no way the temp difference between idle and load should be 25-30C' so I did some further testing.

I then ran two instances of Prime95, AND SuperPi 32M to achieve a huge hefty load on the CPU, and after 20 minutes of continuous loading with those stress tests running, my temps were only at 55C, a far cry from TAT's reading of 65C. Now Im not saying Intel TAT is wrong, but just that it stresses the CPU so hard that nothing you do can or will ever stress the CPU like TAT does, so don't rely on it.

For further testing to be 100% safe, I started up TAT with my cpu running 3.66ghz, and with TAT reading 40C idle and 65C load, I then ran 3dmark05, 3dmark06, FEAR's frame per second test, and played FEAR for 30 minutes with Prime95 running in the background the entire time to test the temperatures on the CPU while loading as hard as it could possibly load. Once I was done, I scrolled through the temperature recording that TAT documented (it saves all your temps so you can scroll through them to see your max temps reached) and found that in every test I ran to stress the CPU, it never went above 56C, which is a whopping 20% cooler than TAT reported for loading.

My point being this: your idle temps are really low for a 1.2ghz conroe overclock, so your load temps won't be as hot as TAT load temps are. Try running Prime95 and SuperPi 32M while watching your temps on TAT monitor and I will be willing to bet they are at least 12-15C cooler than your TAT load temps were.

Those Temps seem to be accurate.

Now, a 1,200mhz increase is a lot for air cooling IMO. I think you should step into water cooling territory for that mhz increase. The TTBT is great but "not" that great.

But you should also look into a few other tweaks, take the side panel off and see if that ease up the load temps, if not.......seriously, notch it down a little till you get to the 60c for the highest.
