Q6600 Temps!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I had horrible temps and I was sick of the load temps so I did the penny / washer mod to my ThermalRight Ultra Extreme.

I was getting terrible temps before, load temps in the high 70's at times.

probably took about ~7-10c off of the load temps, and stabilized my idle temps.

Here's a screenie of my Q6600 temps:






What do you guys think?

Any good?

temps were even worse before. This is actually an improvement. Before my idle temps were > 40 now they're under by qiute a bit.

If you look at the screenshot, I'm using 1.48v for 3.6GHz. I can't get any lower, I've tried many many times. Just the way the chip is.

The ambient temp (or room temp) is ~25c

VID is 1.2875 if anyone cares

your temp pretty good i say as ur ambient temp being 25c and member try to the keep temp under 70C,
another way to improve temp is by lapping ur heatsink and the Cpu Ihs.

Yeah, My TRUE is lapped, but the Q6600 is not.

I lost my Protective Cover for the Q6600 so I have to wait to lap it until I find one. Intel Specifies < 72c so I think I'm good. Like I said before I was loading at sometimes in the high 70's ie 78-80. (only on cores 1 and 4 were that hot. The others were normal -- ie 78 68 68 79)

So I see this as a huge improvemnt

Coretemp says 66c -68c which is high but is ok because you are on air cooling, how much thermal Paste are you applying too much will insulate the chip and raise temps not enough will also give you horrible temps, P.S. Update your coretemp there is a new release out.

Thanks for the heads up on CoreTemp. I use the horizontal line method across the cpu (similar to what Arctic Silver recommends for quads).

Thanks man.

The only thing baffling me is why CPU temp and why System is so high. It's getting me nervous. I think there's something off with the sensor. It's almost abnormal.
