Temperature Concerns - E6400

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Afternoon all,

I'm beginning to become concerned with the temps on my E6400. I have it overclocked to 3.0GHz on 1.280v. According to CoreTemp, Core0 is at 57C and Core1 is at 55C. Room ambient right now is ~31C. GPU-Z gives me a 48C reading on the GPU. I'm using aftermarket cooling with AS5 on the CPU and GPU. Stock TT Armor Jr. case with 120mm front intake, 120mm rear exhaust.

Note: temps are at idle. Load temps reach 60+C.

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133017
CPU Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118115
GPU Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118001

I'm not sure what steps I should take to lower these temps, but I would like to, as, from what I have seen on these forums, they are quite high for this chip. My budget is tight right now, but I have various parts from previous computers lying around.

Thank you for your time and suggestions.

Attached is everest screen of temps/voltages.

Load temps just above 60C shouldn't be a problem. If they approach 70C, then you might want to tweak things.

If you wanna lower your temps, invest in a higher CFM fan on the back, such as http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185060

if your still using the stock fans, they arn't moving enough air around because you only have 2 fans + a side fan (80mm probably) and it just isn't cutting it.

Thanks for the replies. I'm running prime95 as I type and I'm getting temps of 68C and 67C. There is no side fan, I believe the hole in the side of the case is 90mm. I will pick up some 120mm fans from the Egg. Any suggestions on some good blue LED fans? Keeps my case shiny.

You should go for a UK 2000 or go via a fan controller. I run my UK 2000 at 1650rpm and it cannot be heard outside of the case...higher rpms did not help temps that much more by the way.

To OP: Your temps are fine, but get a nice high cfm fan like the UK 2000 or 3000 as recommended by raydeon (any 120mm x 38mm fan should do) for extra breathing room. I've had my 6420 upto 68C for short runs before I upgraded cooler/fan and it's still just fine today! Have fun with it and stress less (besides, our chips don't cost that much anymore!).
