System temp question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
By now most of you no that i got to 4.113Ghz with my CPU stable and i have a question.
I have noticed that me system temp has gone up and do believe its because i raised the voltage to my ram and everything else as well.
Idle system temp 29-30c and i guess at a load it goes up to about 34-35c.
Now i have changed all the Tornado fans to these and wondering if 32.5CFM per fan is enough?
2 intakes
2 exhausts
1 lower intake

How hot can my system temp go up to before my system will suffer?

You can go another 20C and be safe... but I would keep it under 50C for optimal processor life.

Thanks man. I got so used to having very low system temps with those old Tornados that i had that when i notice System temp was higher than my CPU.
I got worried.

Thank alot.

Just to give you a little comparison. Intel designs these things to run in the mid 50's to low 60's. But, you will max out your voltage before you get that high. I think 4.1 Ghz is so fast you are probably dealing with a bottleneck, so I wouldn't worry about it!

agreed with this dude... intels are made to run pretty hot, being able to keep it THAT cool is great with that kind of overclock! my system runs at those temps.

People ! temperatures of sytems and CPU's and chipset's are all relative to the enviroment and to post without this information is utterly pointless.

What is the ambient temperature that the components are located? Is it the same as the room air temperature? What is the relative hummidity?

Idle temperatures count for nothing (unless you let your system idle 100% of time) System's under load is the only real test sampling required.

And as for monitor programs..........well even BIOS figures are somewhat of an average figure, with some software programs way off the mark.

If you want to get serious use a calibrated thermo-sensor. Stand alone units are available cheaply or even the use of a good digital multimeter with a good thermo-couple. This way you can get accurate temperature readings from your CPU die and RAM heatsinks or IC modules check the air temps off your fans and your coolant temperatures.

Yes I know this will get some negative feedback.

but

This is just something I see happen way to much and the emphasis people place upon their temperature readings from software and the lack of additional enviromental information for their situation pains me.

cheers

want some cheese with that whine? I see what you are saying, but in this situation that info was uneeded!

Those are good temps man, thats where I run. If your room is like 20C and your average hi temp is 35C thats 15 over ambient which is considered good for water.

Well today i decided to up my clocks just above 4.2 and i upped the voltage to the CPU and temps went up 1-2c only. But i was pushing almost 1.6 volt and got nervous.
The Prime 95 failed with in 20mins with just 1 error. I believe its my power supply. For it only has a 28 amp rail. And that funny hot smell is coming from the fans on the power supply.
So i went back down to 4.1. Will try at a later date when i get more info on what I'm doing and get a better power supply.
This is my first attempt ((This high)) at overclocking and i don't want to kill my computer.


Thank you all for the info.
