Stock load temps

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I couldn't really find any good answers on this, but what is the average full load temp of a stock Newcastle core 754 athlon64? using a stock hsf that is.

Right now i have mine overclocked to 2.4ghz at stock voltage with a heatsink off an X2 4400 (has the 4 heatpipes) and it's full load temp is about 50-52c (these temps are all from the core sensor)

Hard to say without knowing ambient temperatures, to be honest.

my room is 80f and opening the case causes no diffrence in temp because of the way i have the fans set up (constant flow between the intake and exhausts, the cpu always has very fresh air) I have coretemp running now. it's giving a reading of 51/52c full load but yeah, room temp is about 78-80f right now. (i think i might pick up a 5.25 thermal kit or something of that nature)

Given those ambients, the temperature readings at load seem quite consistent.

I wouldn't worry about temperatures at all if your rig is running strong and stable.

I'm just wondering because when i go for a higher overclock (farily game stable at 2.6ghz 1.68v) everyone says keep it below 55 and watch the temp, even though the highest it'll hit before failing prime95 is 63-64c and during gaming it barly hits 62c.
It is prime stable for 12+ hours (manually stopped at 13 last night) at 2.55ghz 1.62v hitting max temps just around 60c. I suppose i shouldn't worry about it as much as i do as long as it's not crashing on me haha. Right now i'm trying to see how much i can mess with the ram without hurting stability too much, so i'm keeping the settings i had before, but i changed the ram from 2T 2.5-3-3-8 to 1T 2.5-3-3-5

(well that doesn't work good haha, i'll just keep the ram stock)

This is certainly an unpopular opinion as it challenges conventional wisdom (and I do realize and acknowledge that there's absolutely no way for you to know whether or not I'm telling the truth), but I've been told by an electrical engineer who designs computer chips of all types that modern processors are designed to operate safely at temperatures much higher than the manufacturers publicly recommend.

This electrical engineer is the father of one of my best friends, so obviously I trust him. He said that processors are engineered to operate stably at temperatures of up to 70-80 degrees Centigrade at sustained full load. The upper ceiling during testing is actually closer to 90 degrees C. One of the reasons why the chip manufacturers (AMD and Intel) don't declare this is to prevent exposure to massive losses due to returns and claims of defective merchandise which may not be related at all to operating at sustained high temperatures.

As I said, though, this is certainly impossible for me to prove, so I guess just take it with a grain of salt. I'll just go by a maxim I personally subscribe to: If it's still running stably and strongly, then you've got no problems.

lol I'll keep that in mind. If i remember the athlon64's have a circuit to shut off if it gets too hot, and i've set my mobo to shutdown if it ever gets a reading of 70c. Anyways, I've decided to throw caution to the wind and i've ramped the voltage back up to 1.68 and the fsb to 237 (2.6ghz) and the timings to 1T 2.5-3-3-5. I'll start easing up once it starts crashing while i play halo and halflife2 and C&C3 (c&c would be the one to crash it)
(i'm at least going to see if it's superpi 32m stable)

Another Edit

It's superpi 32m stable!!
