Delta Quest(ion)!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So my small FFT delta is 22C, from 43 to 65. See my specs below; is a delta that high questionable? My blend delta is only 9C, up to 51...

I'm reseating and reapplying TIM soon, as well as sawing a hole in my case, but still, would like opinions...

That seems OK. I have has CPUs that have gone from 25C to 65C and higher. It all depends on the voltage and cooling. (although, 43C seems a bit high for idle)

43 is my hottest core, and never really "idles" when the rig is running. The others all sit at about 37, 37, and 39.

3.6 is a nice OC and as long as the load doesn't get higher than 65C or so, your fine.

Nah, I'm folding now at 56, 55, 52, and 49. The problem is when I close my office door at night, and my ambient goes from 22 to 28. Then I fold at 64, 65, which is scary. I turn off the FAH client for the three hours or so I use the computer for gaming (obviously) and movies at night.
