    E4300 oc how hot is too hot?

    Hi

    I managed to get my E4300 overclocked to 3Ghz and stable but my temps seem a high. Core temp 95 shows reading at load to be between 66-72 and idle around 55. Is this too high?

    uGuru has cpu at 45 and speed fan has it 55 at load so it also confusing. Intel TAT doesn't work at all!!

    specs
    Abit Quad GT
    E4300 @ 3.0GHz vcore 1.365
    memory geil ultra 5-5-5-15 @ 2.1v
    Artic freezer pro 7

    Thanks

    seems a bit high really, are you sure the heatsink is seated properly?
    might need reseating with new thermal paste

    3GHz is something to aim for..not all chips will make it that high with good temps/stable etc..

    at 3ghz with artic cooling 7 pro 70 is way to high in my opinion check heatsink is mounted properly all 4 pins should click and heatsink shouldnt wobble at all or not alot, also check your fan is plugged into motherboard (alot of people forget)

    another thing you could check is the flatness of the ihs (metal sheild on cpu) this can sometimes be bent or not flat etc this could mess up temps alot as there wont be contact.

    Ill bet that either one of the clips isnt on properly, or youve made a pigs ear of the thermal paste, or both

    And make sure your HS fan is pointing the correct way

    Using ceramique at the moment, it also doubles up as salad cream.

    That does seem out of norm for that cooler, if you can be asked just make sure the thermal paste is applied evenly with a thin layer, by using a spreader card, if possible.

    Also there might be a chance you've got a concave heatspreader, If I was in a modding mood, I'd take the CPU out make sure it wasn't and if it was I wouldn't hesitate to get in touch with the warrantier or intel, as I've got a spare rig

    Mine is idling at around 38-40 mind you I was too lazy to clean off the supplied paste so i just used that stuff. CPU-Z says the voltage is 1.304 although I set it to 1.375.
