Is this safe?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 



that temp is higher than what it normally runs. i don't do more than play ffxi and surf. lots of overclock.net reading. some people on another forum said that 60 is the highest you wanna let any chip go. then on other forums people say that the e8400 have a tendency to be misread and even then intel says 80 is the max you want the chip to go to. they also said that what coretemp reads isn't read from the same place that the 80c set by intel is. so i'm basing this off what core temp says my max is. is 35c under max safe when your at your computers max stress?


also, do i need to change anything with my memory to obtain a better clock? would i get better results using a lower multiplier and higher fsb?

thanks for any replies.

Fill up everything on your system and we might tell you why your temps are going up.

Of course it's safe especially considering you're CPU almost never reach that amount of stress under regular usage such as gaming etc...

You should be fine mate.

Put some load on it and see how hot it gets. I doubt it's 35c under 100% load.

That is the distance to TJMax in your screen shot of Core Temp, you aren't running 35*C under full load, lol.

...tjmax for 45nm cpu is 100*C and Core Temp is set to 100*C accordingly, so you are running 64*C under full load...regardless its fine IMO.

Why not 65c?

100-36 = 64...

36*C is the distance from tjmax in his ss....100*C is tjmax.

Sorry, i looked at your post above and you mentioned 35c was what he thought, so obviously

100-35 = 65c

But i looked back at the SS and i was wrong

ok so just some minor testing.

@3.0ghz (stock) playing ffxi and converting a video, cpu temp read both cores @100% usage and @65c max temp reached.

@3.6ghz doing the same exact things netted me 67c max hitting 68 at one point for about 2 seconds.

it also converted the video over 2 minutes faster which made me drool a little.


the most intensive thing i do on my cpu is play GTA IV. after i go smoke i'm gonna play gta for awhile on post my results. any suggestions let me know ^^


*edit* also, since i'm an oc newb, is it safe to say that since it's a 2c increase in temp i'd be stupid to not leave it @3.6? some people on a forum i go to said that it's dangerous and is hould never be over 50 on an e8400. they said i needed overclock lessons. even though i asked them for tehm i never got help. at least people here are friendly. all the info i found i ran here with like a little kid to their parents to see if the info was true XD...
