i just put togather my new computer asus p5w intel e6700 core duo. i also have it on aircooiling the thermaltake silent tower. a very large heatsink i got it instlled with zalmant thermal compound. <br />
<br />
What i am wondering is i got it overclocked now to 3.3ghz stock is 2.6 and i run a cpu burn int test that runs it at full power and the max temp reached is 95 degrees F. and idle is uner 80 but usually 75-75 F. that temp seems very low i am using the pcprobe II by asus. it runs perfecty stable i have run 3dmark a few times played HL2 games and not a glitch. i was just wondering if that is a normal temp is my software reading low. i am going to try higher to see when it crashes.

convert your F temps to C temps ( (degF-32) *5/9 = degC) and keep it absoultely under 65 C.... that's when dammage is sure to happen. 50C to make sure of it.<br />
<br />
[edit]: 50C = 122F (so keep it under 120 for a round number). 65C is 149F (so under no condition should it go over 150F)

My E6400 ran fine for some weeks on 50C idle and 70C load. Replaced my old CNPS7000-Alcu for a CNPS9500 and now im under 40Cload <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
So its not that it breaks at 65C but it isnt good <img src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" class="inlineimg" />

you don't want to run for a long time over 60*C

Those are really good temperatures you are running on the CPU. Use the Intel TAT program to get a more accurate reading and report back.

From what I have seen on my systems, PC Probe 2 is usually pretty close to TAT, within 3-5 degrees usually.<br><br>
That Silent Tower is huge, I thought about it for a while to use on my 920 but it got mixed reviews so i went with the NH-U12.<br><br>
What kind of fan(s) are you using on that Silent Tower and what is your ambient temp? Sounds like you are running around 35c full load, 65c on a Core 2 Duo is not good advice, especially an overclocked one unless you rarely use it at full load. 60c is the maximum recomended for a stock Core 2 Duo, 55c is best for a moderatly overclocked C2D, and if you are using lots of voltage, I would personally keep it under 50c or lower depending on voltage.
