How well are my Idle temps at this clock vs. Load?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Here they are Idle.




These are my load temps.



I have a decent sized nick in the HSF that I need to fix up so that might also be a degree or two drop.

Do I have any more room for over clocking?

Your idol temps seem a little bit high but your load temps (the temps that matter) are fine

Get it overclocked some more

Could you type in the numbers of idle and load?...It doesnt display in your post (its my work pc blocking the image). Thanks.

Looks a bit high as the stacker has great airflow. What are your ambient temps?

@ hairston630:

They are 55 55 50 50 across the board.

@ Dar_T:

I'm not 100% sure of the ambient temps, but I do know that my cable management is very horrible at the moment. I can foresee that alone causing some airflow restriction, especially if you've seen mine.

@ wiggy2k7:

Do you think I can push the OC a bit more, say 3.4?


*Edit* Okay, I bumped to 3.4GHz with a 1.4v vCore. Going to drop it little by little to see whats stable, I'd imagine I can drop it quite a bit before I get a fuss. My load temps with 1.4 vCore and 3.4GHz are 60 60 55 55 currently. Does that sound about right?

Thank you. Those temps ARE a little too high. What paste are you using with this heatsink?. The cable management can ruin the airflow and make your pc a heat trap...You will probably be very well off with the cables as far away from the air flow as normal. How many fans do you have in your case? 1-2 in front, 1 in back, and an optional on top or side is best (if you have it). Also how long has it been since you seated this heatsink?

Edit: Also you can drop the multiplier and up the fsb speed and drop a degree or so off the cpu.

I'm using Arctic Silver 5 TIM on the HS, though I have a decent sized nick in the HSF base that I can lap out here soon. I have 1 in front, 1 in the back, 1 on the side and 1 on the top. I did order this beast though as well as 3 more fans to replace my existing ones with.

Link to the beast: http://www.coolerguys.com/250sf.html

I'll drop the multi to 8 and go from there.

So I bumped my FSB up to 1800x8 and hit 3.6Ghz/1.4 vCore still under 60c un-lapped, but unstable :-( Prime95 ran for about a minute and I got a blue screen. I don't think running higher on the vCore is very safe so I'm going to limit myself to 1.37 and 3.4GHz until I get brave enough to do a pencil mod to the motherboard.

Yeah that knick on the hsf block is probably a significant cause of your heat problem. The fans you have and the one your adding is sufficient. You can drop a degree or so by working on your cable management. I dont think I would give that proc anymore juice though im not sure of the limits that intel recommends for vcore (I dont like going over 1.35 on my e8400 as it can cause degredation). If you are just using this proc for gaming then I would stay between 3.2-3.5ghz since your unstable at 3.6...I dont think your going to notice anything (different) real world with 100mhz as the difference. Let me know of your progress.

Edit: Heres a link (http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...-3ghz-1-a.html) to an existing thread in the forum that discusses others voltages for their q6600..It may be helpful in helping you make a judgement as to what is "safe" to use on your proc. I like to play it safe as $200+ is alot of money for a processor and Id like to make mine last...others might think differently and give it more juice. Its your call : ).
