High Temp? e6600@3.3ghz with stock fan

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I am new to overclocking, so any advice would be great. I am running a e6600 at 3.3ghz at 1.45 vcore. The cores idle at 40C and after running Orthos for 20 minutes, they reach up to 63C.

I am using a stock fan, so my guess is I should probably start by replacing that with a better HSF. I do however have some Arctic Silver 5 lying around here, along with Artic Clean remover. Would it make a huge difference if I apply the Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste (currently I am using the paste that came preapplied).

Also a few more newb questions from me:
1. How do I know if my tempertures are too high? What is too high?
2. I use CoreTemp to look at the core temps. However, I also run Everest to compare the temperatures, and I noticed that there is also another temperture being shown for CPU, which seems to read aboiut 10C more then the core temps. What is up with that?
3. How can I tell what my ambient temperature is? My mainboard reads 33C, is that my ambient?
4. When I move on to OCing my memory/gpu, how much will that effect my CPU temps?

TAT is also another program to monitor your CPU temp. It should be around 1-2C difference from CoreTemp. If so both program are right. NOTE that TAT may not work on some motherboards.

1. Your load temps are currently too high. It is recommended on not exceeding 60C load. You'll need to get a better HSF if you plan on staying at that clock. Stock cooling isn't made for overclocking that much. AS5 may help reduce 3-4C.

2. Like I said above, download TAT and compare it with CoreTemp

3. Ambient temp is your room temp

4. I don't know much about overclocking RAMS, but with your current CPU clock, your overclocked GPU will not bottleneck. Keep in mind that overclocking GPU will raise it temps, even if you're not raising it's voltage.

e6600 are very volt friendly (well mine is) I think you can undervolt some more...see if your stable around the 1.375 range? That would help your temps.

Yeah, you may want to compare steppings and see where you are. http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...c-voltage.html

When you say that it is recommended not to exceed 60C. Do you mean 60C core temperatures? Or the chip temperature. As I mentioned, my CPU temperature is reading 10C higher then the temperatures on each core.

That seems pretty damn good to be running like that with the crappy stock hsf, once you get something better you won't have any problems.

Wait, I'm lost on what you're saying.

TAT and CoreTemp gives you temp from the die, which is the hottest part of the CPU. So, I'm saying not to exceed 60C load on what they say.

What do you mean your CPU temp is reading 10C higher than the temp on each core?
Core 0: 40C idle
Core 1: 50C idle ?

I just took a look at my thermastat, and its 80C in my house right now. That may be why my temps are so high

80C? I hope that's 80F

Well, I would back down to around 3.1Ghz and run around 1.32vcore and see how that goes. Summer's just beginning and will get hotter throughout the season.

Sorry, I will clarify. Using coretemp; both my core's idle at 40-41C. After 20minutes of running a CPU/RAM stress test on Orthos they read up to 64C, though they average around the 61 range.

What I was saying is, when I run Everast, another program that shows temperatures, it has 3 readings. CPU temperature, Core 1 and Core 2. Core1/2 readings are almost identical to Core Temps temperatures, while the CPU temperature is reading 10C higher -- at roughly 70C. This extra reading is confusing me and is why I ask... should I be concerned about this extra reading everast is giving me, or should I purely be concerned with CoreTemp's readings.
