I'm having a issue with my E7400, I don't know why its running so hot, or if the temp its running at is normal?
I'm still very new to over-clocking and just built myself a new pc.
I'm running everything with stock coolers.
I've over-clocked the E7400 to 3Ghz. with 286fsb, it runs at 35Â°C idle, and under a stress test in prime95, it hits 57Â°C-60Â°C
The Voltage is set to auto in the bios, so when idle its at 1.264V, and under stress, 1.272V.
I tried over clocking it to 3.5, at 333fsb (3.5ghz) and its idle temp was around 33C and under stress it reached 66C.
But i wanted to know 2 things:
1. I use the asus AI tools that controls the fan speed and shows load and temps, and that's what i been using to monitor temps, since its a asus board. But when i look at the temps with "real temp" or "core temp" they are about 10C higher. so which one should i trust?
2. what is the "safe" temp range for this processor, and what is its maximum? since I'm still new to over-clocking i dont know what's safe and what's not, since the processor doesn't tell me.
Any help is welcomed, and since i have only changed the fsb speed. i'm not sure if i must change anything else.
