    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    wow so im guessing that the thermalright cooler attached to the quad can run at an average of 3.2ghz at less than 60c on load?

    I would say no sweat....and considering normal use won't stress all of the quad....like running WCG @ 100% or prime.

    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    Here are my current results which should add weight to your answers:

    In each case the quoted Vcore is minimised (except stock) & system is P95 stable for 12+ hrs unless otherwise stated; temps are core temps under load over the test period.

    2400 = Stock 9x266, Vcore = Vid = 1.2875, ambient 24, temps 37-44
    3200 = 8x400, Vcore = 1.3, amb 23, temps 38-48
    3330 = 9x370, Vcore = 1.35625, amb 22, temps 38-50
    3400 = 9x378, Vcore = 1.38125 (currently at 11hrs stable), amb 22, 45-55

    All with a single fan on the cooler (see My System spec on left)

    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    Its impossible to say what temps to expect.

    Some of the variables to consider are;

    Room temp.
    Air Flow.
    Type of case.
    Thermal Paste.
    Thermal Paste application.
    Fans used.
    Amount of fans used.
    Fan speed.
    Fan direction.
    Heatsink type.
    Heatsink orientation.
    Vcore used.
    Flatness of IHS.
    Flatness of Heatsink.
    Internal contact with IHS and CPU die.
    Software used to read.
    The sensor on the CPU.

    And so on.



    Pointless speculating really, as if you do a search, you will see people with similar setups reporting wildly different temps.

    You will find that many CPU's of the same variety, come with a higher or lower stock VID as well, so its really just a case of fitting it and making the best of it

    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    umm i see. i just wanted to get a wrough idea on how well that cpu cooler can cool a quad core cpu. seems like it can go over 3ghz which is nice for a air cool. With the new intel chips coming out, are they quad core? of so will they run cooler than a quad core? in comparison to a quad core and a C2D E series range the c2d runs much cooler than a quad core has far as i can tell.

    also how much of a difference does it make when you lap the cooler?

    Hi.

    I have just installed an Arctic Freezer Pro 7, then OC my cpu to 3gh and the temps when running Orthos are 60c, 59c, 46c and 42c. So i double checked the fan I installed and it took me a while to remove it, it was almost glued to the cpu, does this mean I applied too much Arctic Silver 5?

    A tight fit like that would indicate that both surfaces are pretty flat and no air bubbles...plus the sticky from the set goop.

    Hmm, so I applied it correctly then. Well the Arctic Freezer seemed seated correctly, my case is an Antec 900 so it has good airflow, all fans on medium. I was hoping for lower temps

    Given you are air cooling, I'd say your temps aren't that bad. The Q6600 does run very hot and you aren't going to get lower temps unless you adopt extreme cooling measures (i.e. watercooling, lapping your CPU, etc).

    Cheers,
    Stephen

    Thanks for the replies. So should I accept temps of 60c? I thought that was too high? My pc is not running all the time, maybe a few hours a day at most.

    Temps of 60c is absolutely fine for G0..and there are better air coolers than the AC7....like Thermalright ultra + Tuniq Tower.

    The AC7 got a very good write up in Custom PC and is only a couple of degrees worse than the ones you mention, but at around £12-14 online is very good value.

    If you think it's good value and only a couple of degrees worse than the others i'd like to see how cool it is with a Quad @ 3.6ghz.

    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General



    Could someone tell me if this is OK?

    My setup -
    Asus P5K-E
    Q6600 G0
    2GB Corsair RAM 800Mhz
    Antec 900, 2 front fans on low, back fan low, 200mm fan medium
    Arctic Freezer 7 on full speed.

    So i've overclocked to 3.05Ghz.

    I've left the RAM timings on auto, DRAM frequency on 2.0 but the RAM sticks say 2.1. CPU frequency at 1.275 but Probe2 gives Vcore 1.25.

    I cant remember exactly when i started Prime95 25.4 but it says i started at 11:50AM now its almost 6PM no errors so far.

    I've left the NB, SB and most of the other settings in the bios on AUTO, Is this OK?

    My Temps right now, while still running prime95 are

    57C
    57C
    51C
    54C

    Are these OK?

    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    OK so something weird just happened, while writing the above post.

    I got a warning from Asus Probe, MB Warning, the motherboard temperature was showing 192C and on Speedfan was -65C. So i stopped Prime95 25.4 (it ran for 6H 2M no errors) and 10-15 seconds later the temp was still showing 192C as the motherboad temp. So hit the restart button before my pc blew up, went into the bios checked the temp of the motherboard it was showing 38C so either Asus Probe was wrong or my the motherboard temp drop 130C in the space of 30 seconds, even though i had stopped Prime95 for 10-15 seconds later it was still at 192C.

    Then as i was in the bios i changed the speed of the AF7 fan to performance mode. I saved and booted windows and it had gone back to 2.4ghz from 3ghz. Any reason why this could be? So basically the bios overclocking settings were all reset.
