these temps ok?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so in a quest to overclock my not-so-overclockable-q8200 Im at 2.9GHz and running prime for about 15 minutes and the temps seem to have stabalized on:

Core0 - 54 (lol why is this one always the highest?? )
Core1 - 48
Core2 - 51
Core3 - 51

are these temps ok? how much further should i go? What temps should i not hit?
oh and currently at 1.2875 or there about voltage, how high can i go without damaging it?

Those are fine, you're safe to go another 20oC imo


Absolute max for your chip is 85oC as I remember. I would aim to keep it below 70oC.


Edit:
Also the max safe voltage depends on your chip, for 65nm I believe 1.55v is the max people like to go to, for 45nm, it's 1.45v

Temperatures are fine
45nm CPU's good with voltage up until around 1.45v
65nm CPU's good with voltage up around 1.5v~
One core is hotter because of the concavity on the IHS.
