Is this temperature okay for this CPU?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I just tested my new Intel E7600 config. As you will see on the attached screenshot I was stressing the processor really hard with Orthos' Small FFTs test for 12+ minutes. The CPU temperature reached 68°C for Core 1 and 65°C for Core 2. (Computer case was closed and ambient temperature was 25.5°C in the room. Zelman all copper cooler with Arctic Silver Céramique thermal compound). Are these temperatures still okay? (I guess not too many applications use both cores at a constant 100% for 10+ minutes so these are the maximum temperatures the cores would reach, I guess.) Also, idle temperatures are 41°C for core 1 and 40°C for core 2 (after 20 minutes idle mode).

What is the actual maximum for this processor? Some sources say 105°C, some others 95°C and some even other 75°C... Given these non-overclocked speed temperatures being 40°C at idle and 65-68°C at 100% do I need a better cooling system before overclocking or will this be okay?

Thanks.

Looks fine to me, I wouldn't push it much further though, 70-75 tends to be what people go to.

Thanks. I just overclocked it to 300MHz which means 3450Mhz instead of 3066. It looks stable. Memory is set to SPD 3 => 900 MHz with timing 5:5:5:18 (could use SPD 3.33 for 999 MHz but then timing goes to 5:7:7:21 so I just stick to the somewhat slower memory frequency). Now the idle temperature is 47°C/45°C for Core 1/Core 2 and Orthos have been stressing the CPU for 6 minutes now at 100% and CoreTemp is measuring 75°C/71°C for Core 1/Core2.

Is there any other test apart from Orthos that is worth to do to ensure the system is really stable at this overclocking (it seems so, but I would like to be sure).

Thanks

Most people use a combination of Prime 95 and Intel burn test.

Generally people agree on 3+ hours of prime95

Or, 20 runs of Intel burn test (or linx since they're the same thing) on max stress level.

your temps look like mines. i get 45°C on idle and 66° on load. And i'm not worried a bit.
For stressing i use OCCT ( 1Hour), Linx ( 20 times = 5 min), and prime95 (8 hours +-).
I think that max safe temp is 80°C. But i prefer stay away from this.
