CPU Temp Questions

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I overclocked my E6600 to 3.6ghz. I can't find to many programs for stress tests and temo monitoring that will work with Vista x64, so I am using Everest Ultimate Edition trial.

My questions are how accurate is Everest going to be? Also, I read different things about safe temps, but Everest shows the CPU and the Core temps. Which ones are generally refered to?

At no load I am running right around 46 degrees for the CPU and 52 degrees for each core. Under load they go up a bit to 53 core and almost 60, sometime higher for each core.

Does this seem allright, should I try different software or anything to stress test or to monitor temps? Just looking for any thoughts or suggestions.

Not sure, but I think you need to look at the cores, as they are the ones that really matter.

Everest is an excellent monitoring program. It's fully compatible w/ Vista 64? Hmph. cool.

I'd say those temps are a bit too steep.

Wow. Your vcore is high, too. If the temps were fine, then I'd say that vcore is borderline dangerous, but the temps and vcore both point to: Crank it down a notch.

Thanks for the info Zipnogg. I just left the voltages at auto, and was planning on turning things down a bit anyway. But I am glad you noticed the vcore. Thanks for the quick reply.

Run Orthos SP2004 (dual core edition) with small FFTs. (Or 2 instances of Prime95)

If it stays under/at 60C you are fine.

No game or program will actually run it that hot.

Does Orthos work with Vista 64 bit? I think I tried and it doesn't work.

I still would like some input on wether or not Everest is going to be very accurate with my setup. And maybe if something else is better.

I couldn't find anything in vista that would monitor temps, this post is the first time i've heard of a program that does.

The latest version of SpeedFan will monitor CPU temps as well as HD & NB temps for you in Vista.

@jjk: You're welcome, bud. When you are overclocking, it is never a good idea to have the vcore on auto. You should find out the max. volt/temp of each proc that you overclock, and play with the vcore accordingly.

I find that everest matches temps with both speedfan and coretemp exactly. Other software is optional at best. I don't know 100% if everest is just as accurate in vista, but it should be. Temps aren't controlled by the OS after all.

MS have a pact with Intel to not allow any temp monitoring apps to work with vista therefore increasing the risk of destroying cpus due to heat which then generates further sales.

Well not really...

i had the same issue with vista64. tried allsorts. thanks for the feedback on everest, will try it when i get around to trying vista again (i wimped out and have gone back to xp)

on a similar theme tho, i always seem to get a higher temp for core0 than core1, ie core0 =40 core1 =35. any suggestions why this should be so?
