I have it OC'ed to 3.6 right now. Are my temps good? It idles at around 40-50(Core 1,2) and 30-35(Core 3,4)

hm, depends what you are comfortable with. If the temp only hit 70+ under prime, it MIGHT be ok for daily use, although its not recommended. Make sure you are running at the lowest voltage that will allow stability at your desired clock. You can maybe try to upgrade the fan on your heatsink, or do a push-pull setup with 2 fans, or lap the cpu and heatsink.

Then i would possibly LAP your cpu and HSF (if staying at this OC)
And also check to see if your case has maximum airflow


Slim123

P.S. Just noticed that: Stevenma188 beat me to it about the lapping

I downloaded new Real Temp and my temps are 5 deg higher. I think I will revert to 3.4 now. I'll lap maybe in the future

if you're doing strictly cpu stress testing ditch prime95. Go get Intel Burn test v 1.9

Be careful, watch your temps, and make sure your residual values are the same.

Also, do maximum test, about 25-30 runs.

It wont run, it keeps saying I fail Linpack or something

That's really not needed and all it'll do is heat his CPU up even more.

OP, stick with Prime95 and coretemp, you don't want to risk breaking something with Intel Burn Test.

I fail the Linpack Test anyway so it doesn't matter

Oh i know, I'm just saying, that program makes your CPU get insanely hot, to the point where it could damage it.

Usually means you can't do maximum stress. Try defining how much ram you use to stress. IntelBurnTest is a great quick way to test an OC, both temps and stability. 10 runs is plenty.

I've lapped all my CPU's and had a varying degree of success. Sometimes I've gotten as little as 3C and sometimes I get 10C difference. Might be worth it if temperature difference between the cores is really high (ie 10C+)

edit: How can you damage a CPU with heat? It throttles back or turns off if it gets too hot (as long as you don't turn that option off in bios). As long as voltage is low (under 1.5v), you should be fine.

Yeah one core is 30 idle while the other is 45 idle at the same time

I've learned to stop trusting idle temperatures. Intel said it themselves in their white papers that anything under 50C just doesn't sense all the accurately. If you don't throttle under load, you should be fine. I check throttling with Lavalys Everest and temps with RealTemp.

Yeah, Alright I've decided, I'm going to stay @ 3.4, Idle temps are way too high, and Prime 95 temps are insane. Thanks for the help everybody
