safe temps - Page 2

so... probably 1.6-1.65V max, once i cool it enough?
i understand that voltage kills (or at least cuts life of) cpu's even if its cool enough.
man im glad i joined this forum... i thought 2.53ghz was SO much! the regular computerforum blinded me haha, turns out 2.53ghz wasn't that much, and now im at 2.58 and hopefully more after i get water cooling.

props to www.overclock.net!

Trying to re-seat and re-apply would be a good idea. Definitely worth a try. Sometimes they do not seat correctly even though you have followed the correct procedures. At other times they are not tightened sufficiently, make sure you heatsink is securely tightened. Play around with the voltage too, a lot of time people bump that up unnecessarily.

it was necessary to bump it up. it was barely unstable at 2.58ghz, so i bumped it up one more notch and its been dual priming for about a half hour now.
im gonna let it run all night too.
this heatsink sucks, and its extremely hard to take off/ put back on.
it was probably the crappiest investment in my computer.
anyways, i know its getting rid of plenty of heat... the air is nice and warm coming out of my computer.
i think its the crappy structure of the heatsink, its got heatpipes and such its probably just poor quality.
either way, its still only air cooling.

Air cooling is not all that far behind water at idle. Since your idle temps are near 38c you might want to examine your case airflow. Take off the side panel on your rig and see if the temps decrease significantly. If they only decrease a few degrees then it most likely not your case airflow. If your idle temp drops significantly, like 4c or more than all indications point to a lack of airflow. I know you are intending to go to a water cooling rig, but you still need good airflow to your chipsets and your memory. So if you have a ventilation problem you should try to rememdy it first.

mabye a little off topic but does any1 know of a program that moniters the cpu temp, without havin to look in the bios?

haha RIGHT...
airflow isnt a problem, i have 2 120mm, one in back one in front. i also have an 80mm on the side, psu has 120mm and 80mm, and i also have an nv silencer which exhausts air.
its simply my heatsink.
either way i'd like to get water cooling.
idle temps are around 35-38C btw. 38 is just the max idle temp ever.
edit: just checked it, its at 33C idle.
lol guess its water cooling for me then huh?
i was planning on it anyways lol

hey euphoric how did you get such a nice o/c on yur graphics card...
DAMN! lol
and wow... how did my graphics card outperform that by so much... over 1ghz on the core! DAMN! lol
