Right now as we speak it's at 63 celcius under load, would cool and quiet make it run cooler? I don't really want to get a new cooler, too much of a hassle. What are the consequences of running at 63?
Recommend me a good cooler? I hear the corsair h50 is good.
Running that hot consistently and for long periods of time will shorten the life span and degrade performance. It may take a while for this to happen, but it will.
Yes, by enabling C&Q you can manage the temps a little bit better. What happens with C&Q is that it'll downclock and lower voltage when you don't need much power (surfing the internet, watching movies, writing documents etc). It will do well that way but if you game or do intensive CPU-heavy computing you'll likely cause some harm to your CPU with those kinds of temps.
You may be able to negate some of the heat by lowering the voltage, if you haven't already. You may be running at 1.45+ with the voltage set to auto when in reality you may only need 1.4 or less volts. However, it may not decrease the temps by much if you under-volt.
If you did not want to purchase a better cooler, you could lap your CPU and heatsink (making the surfaces as flat as possible) and using better TIM to lower the temps some.
