E6600 + Zalman 9700 Temp Check Please

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm totally new to Intel OK'ing & C2D temps.

This is a new system for me. I have all the grunt work down with the rebuild (OS/Software installation, Images, etc). Everything has been 100% stable for 3 days now and I'm ready to start O'clocking.

I think I might have botched the thermal compound application by moving the HSF while screwing it down. I'm just wondering if I should re-appy. The core temps at default clocks are higher than I expected.

From what I'ver read about the C2D:
60c - Max safe temp for no C2D damage risk
70c - Max safe temp


Rig
- Antec SOHO Fileserver Case
- PCP&C 750W Silencer
- x4 case fans. 27.8CFM / 21db
- Zalman 9700 HSF
- E6600
- EVGA 680i
- 2GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2-1000 @ Stock timings & 800
- EVGA 8800GTS


Room temp is cool ~ 71f

Windows Desktop:
Core 1: 34c
Core 2: 36c
note: during web browsing for 30m, I saw a couple of 42c spikes on Core2 for a single reading. But, only for one reading, then back down to 36c.

After Running Orthos for 30 minutes, the highest temp recorded by TAT were
Core 1: 48c
Core 2: 51c

Those temps seem ok to me. Could maybe be a touch lower...

How did you apply the paste?

By the way, 60.1c is the max reccomended at stock.

55c is generally regarded as the max for an oc'd C2D

What do you mean "at stock"?

stock is the term for an unchanged component.

stock in this case means the original MHz/Voltage for your CPU.

Your cores both show different temps, this can indicate than your HSF isnt seated correctly. when i first seated my tuniq i had a 4C difference between cores, after reseating the temps are the same on both cores.

If youre not overclocked at all, those temps are little high. The second you crank up the vCore to overclock, youre going to go beyond the recommended threshold.
