Stock PC temperature normal?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just bought my new computer, and was checking my temparature with TAT and I dont know if its high or normal
I fooled with o/c a litle bit, but back to default since I find it high a litle bit

here is my spec:

DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, 2400 MHz (9 x 267) (default fan)
Asus P5LD2 mobo
1024 Mo (DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM)
NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS (256 Mo)
Thermaltake Tsunami 2 fans ( 120x120x25 mm) (90x90x25 mm)
with a 2 fans powersuply

in TAT
I get around 42-43c in IDLE
and 82c in ACTIVE 100%workload

Those temperatures are waaay too high for stock, or even a mild oc.

Are you sure you have the HSF seated correctly?

It should be around 3x C in Idle and 4xC at Load. I think the max safe temperature is only somewhere at 60-70C.
I wouldn't suggest running at 80C+ for an extended period of time.

HSF = Heatsink Fan

It's the heatsink with the fan on it, on top of the CPU.

I dont find it normal to have such a high temperature with 2 fans and a stock cpu

See that is the trick behind it. No one will ever find out unless you either tell them or you physicall damage (burn) the processor. There is no way to find out. At least none that I know of.

I don't have a Intel Processor but I would guess anywhere around the 30C for idle maybe even lower and load no higher than 55 or 60C but I don't recommend going over 55C for daily use. Thats just my 2cents
