Running your cpu at max thermal variance is a good way to wear it out fairly quickly.

1.35 vcore after vdroop with the "stock" intel cooler should only be in the low 50's. The AC7 while not great with quads should better than even given your high ambient temps.
I am running OCCT so I assume it is at full load. I also check both Prime 95 and Orthos but it seems OCCT need the highest power according to readings from Gigabyte DES software.

I also suspect that the heatsink is not well seated. But other than no AS5 spread, I followed the instruction carefully and hear 4 clear clicks. I haven't tried the stock cooler but I might try it later.

nah your ACF 7 pro should way outperform the stock one but yea be sure your thermal paste is applied right. Also i suggest getting RealTemp and CoreTemp if you havent already.

I would try the stock cooler. Your AC7 either is not making direct contact or you could have a very uneven surface on the AC7 (which lapping could resolve).

Thats true but all variables aside the ACF 7 is better than stock..yes?

THIS DOESN'T MEAN THAT THE LIMIT FOR THE CHIP IS 105 °C! In this example, let’s say the DTS value is 50. Therefore, Coretemp = 105-50 = 55 °C. If tjmax is 95, the math becomes 95-50 = 45 °C. Don’t worry about doing this calculation; all the temp monitoring software will do it for you. I only mention it so you can understand what’s going on.

Q6600 GO thermal ceiling is 71C

Intel has not released the TJMAX figures for any processor. This is all educated speculation and testing with digital thermometers that created programs like Coretemp and Realtemp.
Thank you for the nice explanation. I use both Core Temp and Real Temp and the latter gives readings about 5 degrees lower constantly. So I'm a little confused and don't know which one to trust.

There is another issue: My core 0 and core 3 are mostly 5~6 degrees higher than core 1 and core 2. I've heard that core 0 and core 1 are on one die and core 2 and core 3 are on another so this makes me even more confused.

I belive your right about core placement and different core temps is normal. Also RealTemp for me actually reads 10* lower than ANYTHING else but from what people tell me it is the most accurate so I am going with that. Robilar, would that be the right thing to do with my 45nm? Go with RealTemp over 3 other programs?

Realtemp is more accurate than coretemp with 45nm chips. (again because it guesstimates a more accurate TJMAX)


For a GO Q6600, use Coretemp.

The AC7 should provide slightly better numbers than the stock cooler


On a quad core, the temps will vary between cores based on load and also contact with the HS. I had a thermalright ultra 120E and a Q6600 GO (the TRUE is the best currently) and my temps were about 4-8C apart on cores. Once I lapped it, the variance dropped to 1-3C between cores.


the attached pic is pre-lapping with a TRUE (room ambient 23C), note the variance in temps between the 4 cores. mind you the TRUE is notorious for having a curvature in its base.

Also if your gonna be looking at new CPU heatsinks take a look at the Xigmatek HDT-S1283. I read ALOT of reviews before buying it and several sites put it right on par with the TRUE with a comparable fan installed and its like 40$ cheaper so the price/performance ratio is WAY better than the TRUE
