Concerned about temps

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just joined the site because I am having second thoughts about the stability of my achieved CPU clock and the temperatures associated with it. I built a cheap gaming rig for about $330 and got an AMD Phenom II X2 550BE 3.1 CPU and OCd it to 3.8 GHz with 1.4250 CPU VID & 1.1750 NB VID using AOD / AMD OverDrive. Normally I would use the BIOS to do the dirty work but my board is somewhat cheap and cannot change voltages (except DRAM) in the BIOS.

And THIS is the heatsink & fan I have

Are these normal temps given the hs+fan plus the oc+voltages I have questionmark.gif

Here are the temperatures at IDLE



Here are the temperatures at LOAD

Are those temps under 100% load? They look fine to me. There shouldn't be a concern.

Yes these are perfect temperatures. Try to keep it below 60C

The first 2 images are "IDLE" and the next 2 are "100% LOAD". I used AIDA64 & HWMonitor

I was concerned because I wasn't sure if the temps reported are actually correct.. I also find it odd that the CPU temp doesn't change much but the core temp does..

My theory is it's the heatsink doing it's job keeping the CPU temp low, but since the cores are in-chip under the lid the temps are more vulnerable to temp fluctuation?
