is a dual hotter than a quad !!!!!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hi OCN ...

this has been niggling at me for some time now can someone put me straight !!

people say a quad is by nature hotter than a dualie but WHY !!!!!!

say for arguements sake u have a Q6600 rig & a E6600 rig matching specs
(cpu aside), and u start to recode a film ...on the dual this process may use 50% of each core producing a moderate heat change per core
and now run the same recode on the quad. this logically now will only use 25% of each core producing a minor heat change per core.
so in reality will they not balance each other out & produce the same amount of heat ....?

or am i just insane

more cores in one cpu, Causing more power to go there, there for more heat.

I can't even imagine what they want us to do with the 8 cores coming out, We're gonna have to Liquid nitrogen them

I dunno but my E6600 runs a lot hotter than my Q6600, both in the same machine and at same speeds with same everything. I'd say it runs a good 10°c hotter if not more. I think my E6600 just runs hotter than most though.

Heat works like sound, if you turn two fans on both producing 35db, the actual sound produced is 40db (twice as loud as 35db) Heat works the same way, one produces x amount of heat, two produces 2x amount of heat.

Your E6600 is a B3, your Q6600 might be a G0 which puts off a lot less heat.
