So here is a shot of my q6600 installed in the MB with AS5 right before I added the HS. It shows the right amount in my opinion given a lapped HS and CPU (which is a thicker line than I used before); the red triangle I drew shows where that tag is on the CPU, remember that on quad core chips, the dies are placed in a different located relative to a dual core, see the instructions on AS5's website for more):



I generated the temps in the far right box with that line of AS5 about 18 h after I installed the HS. I will say that the temps were higher before I let the full load go for a while, so there really is something to this concept of 'break-in' with AS5 at least.



If your temps don't improve you may want to consider lapping your CPU and HS; the vast majority of temp problems stem from poor contact between the HS and IHS on the CPU. C2D chips are notorious for having irregularly shaped IHS.

Read this thread, it contains my Q6600 lapping experience. Read this, it contains my Ultra-120 Extreme lapping experience. (Pics and results).

This was an awesome and helpful post. REP+ big time for you.

Zalman 9700LED is not good IMO. That 90mm fan barely pushes any air and the way the pipes are? doesn't look to be that efficient.

Get a Tuniq Tower 120, several people has it and get good cooling temps. At XS, all the guys use the TT120 to test the newest on air.

Does this still apply when Everest reports the same/more?



I'm gonna cry

That's running 4 instances of Orthos on different cores though...

Those temperature reading from TAT/ Coretemp/ Everest are correct (speedfan reads 15C lower)... although they do seem a little high. What is the VID (stock voltage), you can find it using Coretemp. Mine is 1.265 Vcore, but will run Orthos 3h+ stable at 2700 MHz @ 1.200V I didn't try going any lower, but I'm sure it could run below 1.2v at stock speeds.

These quad cores run really hot on stock cooling, with an after market cooler I would expect better temps though. What is you ambient temperature?

I'm in the process of writhing up a thread regarding my Q6600 with different coolers, voltages and frequencies... hears a peak...

All screenies are at stock frequencies.

Stock HSF with the crappy TIM Intel provides.



Thermaltake Big Typhoon and AS5.



BT + Silverstone FM121 (not as big a drop as I would have expected... not worth the 40 dBa)



And finally, D-tek Fuzion + Termochill PA120.3, custom water (see my sig)


So if your looking to overclock your chip, I would highly recommend investing in a quality W/C setup. If budget is a concern, than the Big Typhon with it's stock fan works reasonably well.

Hope this helps, and good luck with better temps.
