Venomous X idle Temp?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey Fellas


Booted up after installing this heatsink and am currently running at 36-38 c idle.

I Just installed this thing and wanted to wait a bit before doing a realtemp prime 95 or intel burn test. I was wondering if my idle temps are pretty good for my first time installing and applying the tim. i did a pea sized dab in center. I guess after i stress test and see how hot its get @ the standard 2.67 ghz. I will have to go from there.

First time builder, overclocker. any advice?
Thanks and im glad to be a part of a very large and friendly OC community

Make sure your not adding more than 60lbs on the pressure mount, it could damage your socket.

Yeah it's just right. I think those idle temps are
Good.

I don't want to oc to 4 ghz but was looking to
Get maybe 3.6 ghz.

I guess I need to google a guide.

Just an update. Did a prime 95 blend test for 10 mins.

temps didn't exceed 50C.

Pretty stoked. I still need to order another fan clip or refan my case with really powerful ones. clean up the cables.

Im just stoked i fixed my own pc and started from scratch.
