Hey guys, i did some seaches and couldnt find the right answer.<br />
I know that TAT is the more accurate temperature monitor, but i get funky readings with my setup.<br />
<br />
I have a e6600 oc to a 3.6, on air. The asus pc probe reads a cpu idle temp of 50c, while the TAT reads about 45c. from what i read, TAT is usually higher!! any ideas on what this could be, and which one do i trust!!!. TAT, under full load will hit about 61-62c, but asus probe reads about 70c which i know is way too high.<br />
<br />
<br />
Thanks,<br />
<br />

Whichever is correct... your still getting a little too warm...<br />
<br />
Though I am also confused for the same reason(s) you stated.<br />
<br />
Nice OC though!

I would suggest going with TAT over any other tool on the market. Third party software is often nothing much better than a decent guess, and TAT is provided by the company that made the CPUs. While it's not a perfect program, it's the best one available.

Even 61c read by TAT at that overclock is way to hot. 61c is the threshold for a stock 6600, and I am sure you are not within the voltage guidelines either (I'm guessing about 1.45 vcore?) which means that poor CPU is sizzling.

</div>Actually, i lowered my settings a tad, brought my multi to 8, and the freq at 400. so its running at a 3.2ghz now. my core voltage is at 1.21v right now, even when i had it at 3.6ghz, i was only at 1.3v. i try to keep that as low as possible. still have to run prime 95 though.<br />

</div>Remember to run Prime on each core.

I dont like this, we say conroe's are better than AMD's but they always run hotter why? For AMD's we always say no more than 50c (HOw do we know?) For C2D we always say 60c max (How do we know though?)

The temperature threshold really had nothing to do with the capabilities of the CPU; it's just a physical propery. Dothans, for instance, are rated up to 100°C, and they were one of the best cores on the market for a long time.<br />
<br />
Temperature limits are generally based on info released by the manufacturers (check out <a href="http://proecssorfinder.intel.com" target="_blank">proecssorfinder.intel.com</a> for Intel's info; there's probably an AMD equivalent). How much fluff, if any, is in those number is not publically available. Also, temperature reading programs are far from perfect, so it's not the best idea to push things right to the specified limits. All that together works into the generally accepted max. temps for any given core. They're just rules of thumb.

Thx Taeric <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /> So what do you think are the max OC'ed stable temps for a AMD64 and a C2D?
