I have a XSPC RX360 Rad
Swiftech MCP655 Pump
EK Supreme LT
Antec 900
3 Late Yoons (Medium Speed) at pull and one aerocool at push
My Q6600 is oc'ed at 3.4ghz, and my room is about 65-70 degrees
my core temps at idle are like 32,27,26,28 both speed fan and core temp
at load all around 47.
noob question, how do I find ambient temp?
and are my q6600 temps are up to par with my w/c temps?
thanks

your temps are pretty good 47c under load is good you would have no problems going up to 3.6 or higher. Ambient temp just use a good thermomitor in the room out of direct sunlight

Intels get pretty damn hot under load? What kind of TIM are you using? from 32-47 is just a large jump thats the only part that i dont like. 47 is good for a OC cpu and 32 is great idle im just surprised you jump 15 degrees on load i only jump like 5-6.

More between amd and intel. amd x2 and x4 arnt that much heat difference (a lil but not much) also notice im running 1.55 volts. But intel is a lower volt CPU so when they are cranked up they create a lot of heat... kinda like ATI cards are hella hot.

Twice the amount of heat-producing cores under the same size heatspreader... yes, quads run hotter than dual-cores!!

47 degrees load is pretty damn good, push that baby harder...

What are normal temps for a 45nm quad?

TIM= Thermal Interface Material = Thermal Grease -- ex. such as AS5 or OCZ Freeze. It's what you put between the CPU and Heatsink for better contact\hermal transfer.

But yeah, seriously, those temps are great. You have a ways to go before you need to worry about your temps. Keep going!!
