Q6700 Temperatures

Hey guys,

I'm concerned my q6700 temps may be a bit too high for stock settings. With my Zalman 9700 and AS5, I am reaching temps of 56C (coretemp) under load w/ prime95. Is this too high to OC?? Should I try to reseat my heatsink? I don't want to go above 60C..my E6750 wasn't getting this hot!

Also - pushed my board (P5N32-E SLI yes I hate this board) up to 1200fsb and it wouldn't post. Anyone got a quad on this board, and if so, what settings are you using for voltages / fsb speed? I know there is a fsb hole, and it sounds like I may have some luck trying to punch it to 1400 and lower the multiplier by one. Going to try this when I get home..

Yeah they shouldnt be that high at stock. I believe my temps w/ the qx6700 and zalman 9700 were 45ish under load. Try a reseat and take it from there.

I have a Q6700 @ 3.0ghz/1333FSB/1.3375v with the Xigmatek HDT1283 and loaded the processor reaches 61C. Your temps sound about the same as mine. These processors tend to run on the hot side.

q6700's are GO stepping. My e6750 was a GO also and it only got to 60C when I had it up at 3.2-3.4 from 2.66GHz stock. I'll try to reseat it tonight, maybe i missed something...
The Zalman 9700 was never designed to cope with quad core processors. I have one on a dual conroe and it is up to the task but it simply is not able to dissipate the heat of a quad once overclocked.

56c btw is not too hot for a quad under load.
thanks robilar! by the way, that p5n32-e thread you started was and is still very handy
