Q6600 Idle Temp

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, finally just got my new system put together and got Vista on it. This is my first real system (first one putting together from scratch) and I ran core temp to see what my temps were looking like and it seemed like it was running a little high. Right now they're at 42, 39 (have to go enable other 2 cores in bios, forgot to do that). So that's pretty much idle temps, just downloading some stuff and browsing the internet, so not really any load on it and just wanted to see if that was high? Thanks.

Edit - just checked on Real Temp and it has them at 37, 34. A little lower. What do you guys think? Normal? What kind of temps should I be looking at for under a full load? I haven't even overclocked yet, so hope i got the paste on there good and stuff.

Edit 2 - Added a screenshot of CPU-Z and Core Temp. What do you guys think?

Welcome to OCN,
What's your core speed though right now? CPU Cooler? Case? I'm at 3.0GHz idle around 32-38 degrees.

Use core temp, real temp gives much lower temp than core temp. From my research, real temp are for CPU with 45nm technology. Q6600 should be measured with coretemp.

Edit: You can test that program with other tools. Download hwmonitor and Cpu-z. You'll need them if you are going to overclock. Compare temp using hw monitor.

Thanks for the quick responses. Yes, I have CPU-Z as well, the VCore is stock - 1.296v. My room temp should be about 70F, and I believe all my system stats are in my signature. I'm really hoping I don't have to reseat the cooler, though, lol. It was such a pain getting it in there. Also, if anyone wants to take a look, my build log is here if you want more information and pics on my build. Thanks for any info you can give me.

id say those temps are correct. my temps read 33,34,30,30. ambient temp is approx 25c.

max temp at load is approx 55c.

when i was overclocked, i idled at 39,40,35,35 ambient at 22c. load temps at 65c.

Updated with pic. any other ideas?
post #9 of 26
Highish IMO, I have 35C-30C idle at 3.2ghz..
I noticed you have the 750i FTW you should check out this thread

http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...ck-thread.html

Quite a few Q6600 + 750iFTW owners there ;]

Did you try reseating again like suggested? Plus in that pic I noticed your Q6600 is being throttled and yet you still have high temps, disable ce1, spread spectrum and speedstep also go into the pc health part of your bios and set all your fans to manual 100%
post #10 of 26
It's little high. I checked how you seated your CPU cooler, but Is your fan blowing air to the exhaust fan? or is it blowing into the case? Definitely your temps are high. Maybe you need a better fan like TRUE or Tuniq. I attached pic that what should happen if your system is properly set.
