What Load temperatures + Hyperthreading

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What is the maximum load temperature a C2D can handle without causing any camage and also do C2D's have hyperthreading, if so how can i enable it

Core 2 Duo's do not have Hyper-threading. HT technology retired with the Pentium 4/D.

People are readily concerned with the amount of heat that their processor is being subjected to. However, something even more important than heat is voltage. I would be more concerned with the amount of voltage that your CPU is taking than the heat.

For example, I would not put the Core 2 Duo over 10% stock voltage (1.485) for 24/7 operation. Your chip could be at 25C, but if you put to much voltage into it, then it will die.

For temperature, I would try to keep it under 80C.

Your processor will never die from high temperature (not extreme temperature, high temperature). It may fail from high temperature, but you never really have any danger of your processor dying at temperatures under 90C (or even more).

Your processor will die from high voltage though.

Just keep that in mind.

wow! If it wasnt pauldovi saying it I wouldnt believe it. I know that voltage is more detrimental than heat, but I always thought 60c was the load temp to shoot for and that you should never exceed 70c for an extended period of time. Guess i can try to clock mine a bit more.

Personally, I don't overclock mine over 5% stock voltage and no more than 50C. This is because I like my hardware to last, and I just don't need the power.

Operating your processor at an increased voltage will significantly decrease the lifespan of your processor. Operating it at an increased temperature will also decrease its lifespan, just no as bad as the voltage will.

Something that I didn't make very clear. While your processor may not be in danger of any permanent damage at higher temperatures, its stability will be lower. A processor at 30C will be inherently more stable than one at 75C. Keep that in mind.

Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quads under the stock cooling often exceed 70C under normal operation in OEM machines.

If you don't need the extra speed, I wouldn't risk it. My processor is capable of running in excess of 4.0Ghz, but I am happily running at 3.0Ghz. Why? Because I have yet to find a task that will stretch my processor as it is.
