My Q6600 too hot? - Page 2

post #11 of 26
Thread Starter 
Sounds like the most popular solution is to get Tuniq. Does anyone know if this thing is compatible with my motherboard? I've never had a setup with 4 holes in the board that holds the heat sink before. Doesn't feel very secure. May be this is the standard now as my last PC was based on Athlon 64...

Mean while, I will try to push the heat sink a bit when it is on load to see if that helps. I assume Arctic Silver 5 is a heat compound?

tiny could you please fill in your systemspecs in the cp section? life's easier that way. Yes it will be compatible with your mobo as for as i know

the tuniq comes with a backplate for extra support. Mine holds fine that way, mobo didn't break

Yes the TUniq is compatible with your motherboard.The tuniq will come with a backplate for support. Trust me it will work. And it seems as if your temps are to high, the tuniq will fix that up. Also get some Shin Etsu thermal compound. It can be found in the for sale section. I think its the best out there.

70 is a safe temp but wow doesnt stress the CPU much.

You should be getting 70 with a small FFT load, but if your getting 70 in wow you'd be getting like 85 with a prime95 smallFFT load.

Max safe temp is 72C for that processor, but I wouldn't run it that hot during wow...

Grab some artic silver 5, or some shin etsu, and a good heatsink and use the line method that is shown on the artic silver 5 site for quad cores.

Even for stock HSF that seems way too high. Especially when just gaming... I barely get any increased heat from gaming.

Looks like something is definitely wrong with my setup. I hope it turns out to be the heat sink issue, or rather not sitting properly.

I think I know the issue now. Pressing the heat sink firmer didn't help. In fact, Wow drove temperature to 75 at one point. Then I noticed something. By leaving the case off, it appears to not exceed 66 even when Wow is running at full.

Looks like my other components are contributing to the temperature inside the case. I currently don't have a fan on the front of the case. I guess this would help, correct? I am somewhat dissapointed though, as the case fan is set at max speed.

Looks like I will need to buy another 120mm fan, and stick it in front of the case. I may hold off from purchasing Tuniq for now, and experiment with the fan first...

Cheaper InWin case I have provides direct air inflow from side of the case. Why doesn't $120 Sonata3 case provide this? Oh well.

66C is still pretty high for stock. Definitely get some better case cooling now. You want to take the heat near the cooler out of the case as quick as possible.

its a problem with the stoch HSF ithe same thing happened to me 2....then i bought the TRUE and now at 3GHz my max temp under load is only 50-53C with an ambient temp of 30C(very hot here)...and its not even lapped and i have a slow 800RPM FAN attached..
with ur ambient temp and a TRUE with a decent fan u can OC easily upto 3.2 with less than or just 50C...and ppl have claimed tat wen lapped it goes down by 5C...with both cpu and true lapped it can go down even 10c
