Are these temps ok for Intel E6600?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As I had posted in my other post, I managed to get this to 3.3 gigs (9 * 370-373 ish) Under full load running Orthos (and monitoring with CoreTemp) my temps reach up to 60-63 (this is full load). Now I do have adequate cooling (Zalman 9700 with 5 case fans). Also, it doesn't run constantly at those temps. Just some of tehse tests seem to stress the CPU hard than other times. My VCore is 1.31 under load and NB is 1.38-1.39 under load. Based on this information, are these temps OK?

Also, I am monitoring the voltages with the Asus probe 2 utility. Two things I notice. The 1.2 VHT (what is this?) sometimes (according to the program) drops to "0" or as high as 1.52 for a split second. I don't know if this is just a bug with the program because it is idle at 1.25. And, the CPU VTT (what is this?) is stable at 1.36, but occasional goes to 1.38. I only mention those higher/lower than normal voltages because Asus probe turns read when they reach those voltages. Again, I am unsure if this is just a bug iwth the program (not reporiting accurately) or what. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

No.

I wouldn't expect temps that high even on stock cooling.

Keep them under 60 at the very most. I'm more comfotable keepingt mine under 55c.

Well again this is OC'd to 3.33 gigs Plus I think Zalman says it takes a week or so for the goop to settle in. I think the problem is that I have a side panel fan blowing right on the heatsink itself. I think I could do better to move that fan,

In general, 60°C is on the very edge of not OK. Most people would like to see lower than 60°C. You can run higher if you want, all that it means is that your CPU won't live as long as if you ran it at a lower temperature. I don't know exactly how much less life your CPU will have as a result of higher than recommended temperatures, but it'll be less that it could be with lower temps.

My E6600 full load temp @ 3.2GHz (1.416v) currently tops out (with uncured AS5) at 52°C (with a 21°C ambient) and I'm happy with that. I wouldn't be happy with 60°C. That's just me though .

I'm running the same type of prime temps as you are. I'm not particularly happy with them and I think that a reseat or two is in order. The difference between me and you is that I'm at 3.7GHz. Hrm... I think I'll go home and reseat now. Thanks for spurring me to get onto my thermal problem. I'm getting lazy.

I'd agree 60C is the upper limit. Maybe a shade over while priming, so long as your daily use never gets anywhere near topping 60. And I do understand what you're talking about. They chip seems to have 3C 'fluxes' up and down from 60C to 63 and it'll sit for a few minutes then drop to 60 for a few and cycle that way for hours on end. Odd. Very odd. I just ignore it and attribute it to different FFT test sizes.

I have the same cooling as you JCBananas2 mine is clock at 3223.0 MHz
533MHz 4-4-4-12 2.1v
My MCH voltage is set on default. I don't what voltage would be on this mobo D975xbx.
Besides the default setting, 1.525v is the lowest setting.
Current CPU temp 38c on speedfan. But on TAT CPU 0 37c CPU 1 36c

CPU 0 is always one or two degrees higher than CPU 1 don't know why.

Well I rearraged one of the fans and lowered my NB to 1.30 (but it reads at 1.34) and my temps dropped about 5 degrees or so. Currently maxing out at about 55 (however some harder orthos tests may come along). I also turned the heat up in this room to see how it would handle. It's hot in here
