Stock vs. After Market

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
How much of a difference in temp does one ussually notice when comparing a Stock HSF cooled rig against an After Market HSF cooled rig?

I now ambient, chipset, and other temps factor into this, but assume 2 machines are identical in every way (down to the digits temp wise also), What kind of Temp differences would one normally see?

Quite a bit. On my old 6420, I think I dropped roughly 12C when i got the tuniq compared to stock. If you plan on overclocking, you really should grab an aftermarket cooler.

Depends on the specific cooler and the chip, but any aftermarket CPU cooler worth it's salt will show a big increase over the stock cooler (which is generally considered junk).

This is an enthusiast forum and you'd be hard-pressed to find any serious members overclocking any CPU on its stock cooler, so that should tell you something right there...

EDIT: Stock speed temps may not change a lot, but when you starting pumping more volts through the chip, an aftermarket cooler will start performing head-and-shoulders over the stock unit.

It varies a lot. The more you have it overclocked the more gains you will see. It also depends on the stock heatsink. Some are worse than others. Personally, I am of the opinion that the thermal compound is just as important as the heatsink. Just buying some liquid pro or ic diamond will lower temps by a ridiculous a ammount over the stock thermal paste.

Yes, that's helpful. But, if you want to get any kind of decent overclocking going on that chip, which you should, you'll need to grab some sort of aftermarket cooling.
