Is 60c ok for 955 at 4.0?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Coredamage max heat was 60.2
Intel burn test was 58.5
Prime95 was 60

My nb is at 10x i'm assuming that its 2600 @ 1.28v
Cpu-z rated my volts at 4026 @ 1.36v

Memory is 2x2gb until tomorow going 4x2gb 9-9-9-24 1T

Ideally should be 55*C or below. The Max temp for most of the phenom II's is around 70*C which is AMD's listed MAX temp for your 550 as well (AMD website) so once it reaches 70*C it will start to shut down to protect the CPU ! (you really should look into ways 'defo a no no to stock heatsink' to get that thing cooler as your cutting it pretty close)

From what I remember, the max temp is 63C. BTW, prepare to up your voltages for those extra two sticks of ram.

Ya I think I need a better case, I got this cheap case cause I was on a budget. But is the rest of the specs ok? Like the nb and the voltages?
Also my idle is 27c

So up my cpu voltage when I add the 2 sticks?
My memory voltage is 1.6 right now

How was IBT lower then P95? I never had P95 come within 4 or 5c at most of ITB. Unless maybe you just ran IBT on normal and not high or max. Maybe. But yeah 60 is too high. The cpu's start acting funny over 55c. I got mine were I dont hit over 42c in any games, which is about 50c or so in IBT or P95. Or you could see some random BSOD's. Not bad temps on stock cooling though.

Try lowering your cpu/nb down to 1.25v and give that a shot, if all goes well continue till it freezes/bsod etc. Make sure to stress test it. Also if you do however look into a cpu cooler, check out the Thermalright Silver Arrow (im using 1), absolutely wicked but absolutely hugh so need a good case.

I'm redoing the ibt right now. Just to make sure it was on high. But I'm sure it was. So far its up to 60.8

Hi just a bit of advise AlexxxAdam...

I seriously question the need for all this 24hr testing going on your brand new CPU, I see numerous cases of guys bragging about their 24hr stress testing, or saying someones overclock is not stable because they haven't benched for 24 hrs.

A stress test is running all of your CPU cores flat out for however long you run the test, unless of course a core drops out because your overclock is unstable, I see the need for short term testing say an hour or maybe 2, because it won't take that long for an unstable overclock to show itself, but 24hrs in my opinion is not necessary.

There is not a thing on this planet designed to last forever, your precious CPU included when companies like Intel and AMD, guarantee their CPUs for 3 yr warranty time period, they're confident their CPUs will actually go past that time period, however that calculation is based on 3 yrs and beyond of normal use.

They know their CPUs are capable of lasting under normal spec'd use longer than the 3 yrs or they would not warranty them that long.

Now the cold hard fact is that overclocking your CPU will shorten its lifespan, but we accept that for the additional speed we gain, most of us will replace that cpu with an upgrade before is life expectancy arrives anyway, so taking it out of specifications is acceptable.

However that's with normal day to day use, surfing the web, audio and video editing and converting, gaming, office documentation Etc, and though serious bench stress testing is necessary to achieve a stable overclock, what damage does stress testing over a 24 hr time period and beyond, actually do to shorten the lifespan of your new CPU.

For example if you stress test your new quad core CPU for 24hrs, and all 4 cores are running at 100% for 24 hrs, how much normal daily processing is lost, because no daily application uses all 4 cores at 100% for 24hrs, so at least think about that when you overclock your CPU, and use at least some kind of wisdom in your stress testing.

Because if you don't think you're adding to shortening the life of your CPU, you're wrong!

I would have already stopped the test once temps hit 55c. Get some after market cooling, then have fun with it.

Thanks guys for all the advice. Ya I just wanted to play around with what I have so far. Aftermarket cooling is next. Ya all these test where done for an hr or so 2hrs on coredamage
