Do These E6600 Temps Seem A Bit High To You? - Page 2

As an experiment, sure. Personally I like to have the door on as I feel "naked" with my internals exposed on a regular basis.

Try to have a straight-through-the-case airflow (front to back) without any interference from the side(s).

Should I try reversing the side 25cm fan to blow out air instead of intaking it? Would be okay if air going out is greater than that of air coming in?

Mornin'

Still at eh? Good for you.

You could attempt that. There was a time that at felt that "positive" air-pressure was better. After considering the logic of other members advice and doing some reading I switched to "negative" pressure. Although I did not see a dramatic drop in temps (none at all that was perceptable), It does seem as though I am accumulating less dust and friggin' cat hair in the case.

You know.... I never did inquire as to how much TIC you applied to the core prior to seating the HSF?

How much did you use? Perhaps re-seating will help. That has been the issue for any number of members in the past (an mine as well on one occassion as I had jostled the unit mobo about as I installed it in the case).

Refer back to post #4 in this thread and take a look at the factors.

Good Luck!

For the speeds, the x8 multi at 3.20ghz and 50c high? That's excellent.

For the x9 multi at 3.40ghz? That's still acceptable but 58c for the highest is not my cup of tea, I'd say keeping it below 55c should the more acceptable. Even though 68c is supposed to be the highest for the C2D.

Whatever cooling you have right now, I wouldn't change it.

BTW, don't get the FM121, it's noisy as hell and not worth it. I have one right now with my TT120 and I had to set the rpm AT 2k because at 2,400, the fan sounds horribly loud, so, 400 rpm less and it sounds just like the TT120s stock fan and guess what? Same temperatures, no difference at all.

The TT120's stock fan is perfect but if you're willing to withstand all that noise with the FM121 at 2,400rpm, go for it, the only difference in temps were 2c-to 3-c less than the stock TT120's fan but the noise was unbearable for me.
