Core 2 Quad temps ok?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I got an intel q9550 and I want to oc but I want to make sure my temps are ok. Right now at idle my temps are 44 39 42 38 with RealTemp. I'm using Xigmatek hdt-1283 cooler and AS5. Under load with p95 my temps are 61 58 58 55. Thanks!

Looks like your ambient temperature might be a little on the warm side but those temps are fine. If you just installed it give it a bit for the paste to settle and then stress it again and see if they drop at all. How's your cable management? You might be able to drop a couple more degrees if you better your air flow in your case.

Hope this helps.

I would say as long as you keep it under ~70C you should be fine. That's my preference, but I'm underwater so I usually get nervous when I see 50C

Edit: AS5 does have a burn-in process and time so you will likely see temps drop over the next few days.
