Sorry about the oddly named thread name as it was supposed to draw attention


I had a Intel Pentium D 915 OC'd to 3.570 GHz at stock voltage with CNPS9500A Cooling and it maxed out at 50*

And i swapped to an Intel E6300 at stock clocks and stock voltage with a Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme and the it maxed out at 60*, now the build is literally just built and i know i should give it some time but i was wondering if this was ok? :S

Thanks


Edit : Just had a look at HW Monitor and it has Intel Pentium E6300 temps : Core #0 - 44* Core #1 - 43* and yet above it, it has Temperatures - CPUTIN - 64*...... which one do i look at :S

you dont want alot of thermal paste. btw if your not extremely good with building computers i would highly be against you using a conductive thermal paste. a little bit in the wrong place and bam your chip/mobo is shot

I still want to know which temperature gauge to follow as the E6300 temps in HW monitor doesn't change via load or idle but the CPUTIN does but when i put my hand to the cpu cooler itself i feel NO heat what so ever......

Just realised that CPUTIN is the CPU Case temperature, what ever that is :S and that the other temps are my actual CPU's which is a nice surprise, so ON WITH THE OC, got to 3.8 so far and stress testing as we speak
