q6600 Temperatures

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey guys... i keep second guessing myself on my cpu temperatures... so hopefully you guys can tell me if im doing okay or if i need to make some changes....This is what i have ....

q6600
Thermaltake Beetle

Here is a reference and review page:
http://www.overclockercafe.com/Revie...tle/index.html



But temps with no load are around 46-48 Celcius
and Under load they are anywhere from 60-63 Celcius with like orthos.

Only seen it around 56-58 or so in one of my games...

With my voltage n such you think these temps are ok ??

Those idles are high even for a B3 like mine, i idle @ 35~40 @ 3Ghz. You load temps would be pushing 75c based on your idles (by load i mean small FFTs in Prime). What vcore are you using?

Also, use Core Temp to measure your temps.

i would use core temp i think it would be a little more accurate also if ur cpu is only at 1.35 with those temps ur vcore must be like 1.25 or just that u need better cooling. my cpu is at 3.3 at 1.475 and never goes over 59c at full load on prime 95 but i have a tuniq and it awesome

Whats is your ambient temp?

Your cpu is running a little warm there and under a stress test I bet it would fail...but then again everyday tasks are not as harsh as a stress test.

I havent seen that cooler before,would you consider a newer model?

well i have already done a stress test by orthos and it ran for 2 - 3 hours...

ive been gaming the last 2-3 days for 5-6 or 7 hours at a time... i have had no problems... no lock ups.... no hard reboots that i have had to do or anything....

ive even benchmarked through pcmark06 and scored a 12,000 with only 1 gcard.

ive been running at these settings for about 2-3 days now... but im still curious to what i should do....

I Downloaded core temp.... still says my cpu cores are running at 51,50,50,53
or somewhere in that area....

My room temperature i have no clue.... its always been kinda warm in here tho and its cuz i keep my door shut and i have so many fans on my case that all that hot air just blows into my room....

cieling fan and desk oscillating fan in here too.....i usually keep turned on...

under orthos and my gaming my temperatures havent reached over 62-63 .....

This is a link to my Cooler.... check it out and tell me wut u think....

It also has an option to add an additional fan to the back.... maybe i should go buy one and throw it on... and see if it helps some...

when i put my cooler on i used AS5.... just a small dot in the center....I would consider changin coolers but dunno....

Yeah i used prime95 and the load it produced hit all 4 cores and put em at around 71-74 Celcius....

i immediatly turned it off lol .... because the max ive been told is dont let it run over 80

Should i lower my vcore? its at 1.35

I put my vcore at 1.25 and im stress testing now... we will see...

temps are 68,66,66,67

stopped after an hour... i am 45 45 46 47 idle now...

I'll just lap my cpu and heatsink... and buy another fan and ill be straight... can probably oc more after that....

3.2 I used 1.375 vcore I think the temp was mid 50 under load, unless your ambient temp is really hot otherwise it really shouldn't be reaching high 60s for 3.2 oc...
