x3360 xeon running hot?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Evening, subject is fairly straight forward, My Q6600 idle was cooler than this cpu, it idle's at 29C. The Chill Factor paste was used with my TRUE, results were 29C Idle, I switched it out for some new OCZ Freeze, 29C Idle result as well. I actually thought the temp monitors were little buggy but they do move up and down with load, 3.613Ghz volt is 1.25v where the q6600 was 3.6Ghz at 1.45v. Mind you on OCCT 4 core load this cpu only touch's 54C which was better than my old quad....just get the feeling this runs a little hotter than it should. Anyone else with the X3300 series quads notice they're running a little warm?

54C Load? not bad

I don't care much about idle temps.. .actually, I don't care about idle temps at all. The only thing that really matters are load temps.

Ya true, I guess it's irrelevant at idle really. We'll see when the Coolit Elite gets here tuesday if that gets lower. Seems Core 2/3 stick at 29 and never go lower but Cores 0/1 are always changing and do go below 29C at 25 right now the others just stays. Ah well load as you say is key.
