    I'm not sure at what point the base line changed, certainly the E6550 (and other 333MHz FSB CPUs) have the baseline at 100oC rather than 85oC and I think the G0 Q6600 is also included. Core Temp 0.95.4 can identify the chip (0.95 cannot) and so assign the correct baseline while other utilities just put all C2D and C2Q in the same section with a baseline of 85oC (as it was when the first chips were released).

    So if your CPU has a baseline of 85oC then the majority of programmes will give you the same or very similar readings.

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    Yeah, mine is 85C.

    The only difference with SpeedFan, is that it shows the surface temperature, aswell as the core temps. CoreTemp and intelTAT just show the core temp.

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    mine is running at 3ghz and its usual temperature is around 31 degrees, somtimes in the low 20's c according to the NZXT LEXA case which displays the CPU temp on it

    so 80 degrees lol! seeems wayyy to high

    get a better cooler, mine is running on air btw

    Did you build it yourself?

    The diodes on the lexa's (I'm Building a system with one right now) won't report that accuratly because they are just stuck near to the cpu not onto (which obviously should'nt be done) it.

    I don't know what the hell it's measuring (maybe nothing), but it's not your CPU core

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    Well I cleaned up and rebuilt my rig around 2 days ago, reseated the heatsink as i never installed it properly the first time! and once I did that and added new thermal paste, my temps instantly dropped, so yesterday i decided to overclock for the first time, and its on 3ghz, and my temps have just risen by 2c from stock, i havnt stress tested it yet, but when i was playing a game and also rendering using all cores, my temps only rose to 43c on load, so i havent really bothered with stress testing it as i cant see the point of it, when my normal usage doesnt even go that high in terms of temps

    But 80c is way to high, you must either have a bad chip or ur heatsink isnt installed properly, when applying the thermal paste, only add a small pea amount in the middle.

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    80oC is dangerous for a processor. You really shouldnt have it going about 65-70oC otherwise it will probably cause damage or reduce the life expectancy of your chip. I find speedfan 4.35 and core temp 0.95 give me the same temperature readings for my Cores (using a Q6600 also. but that could also mean they are both wrong by the same amount ). My stock speed cpu has temps of 56oC (for 2 cores) and 48oC (the other 2 cores) at load using prime 95 / orthos. The temp difference is probably to do with incorrect HS installation (got a Thermalright Ultra-120A which is probably wonky).

    They are expected to last about 10 years, decreasing it by half is still 5 years. Most people with quads wont be keeping them for 5 years anyway...

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    the temp it says on the nezxt lexa case may not be exact but it would give a suggestion of the temp right......?

    right now while i am writing this reply the temp is 29 degrees c & its overclocked to 3ghz, when i play crysis it rises 2 around 35 @ the most

    what "SHOULD" the temp be, if my temps r accurate i think this can overclock LOADS more

    i did NOT built it myself, bought it from a company who built 2 my spec

    thanks

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    No the temperature sensor on the Lexa will be no where near the actual temperature of your CPU (unless it happens by a complete fluke) the sensor (likely to be a foil type) will be positioned somewhere in the case near the CPU perhaps on the motherboard tray but it will not actually be touching the CPU. The biggest error will be load temps, idle temps are probably about right but thats more to do with your processor not doing anything rather than the sensor reporting a true CPU reading.

    If you want to know your CPU temperatures download core temp http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ that will tell you your core temperatures (still wont be accurate as the sensors are not calibrated but it will be one hell of a lot better than the foil sensor on the case somewhere).

    I would expect your Idle temps to be ~30-35&#176;C and your load temps (run prime95,Orthos, OCCT or Intel Burn Test http://downloads.guru3d.com/IntelBur...load-2047.html) to be up in the 50s at least.

    Run them and let us know!

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    Aye, that's why I said I don't know what it's measuring. At best it might be attached to the HS. AT worst it's just in the general area of the CPU. These measures are best used to give you an idea of temps inside the case in certain areas, which will be a clue as to how good the airflow is (indeed I would suggest that the 'probes' are left "hanging in thin air" as it were.

    For CPU Temps I suggest the latest versions of CoreTemp and Real Temp and a liberal application of common sense (Webby's figures are a good guide as to what you can expect in an average system, and anything greatly under or over is likely due to incorrect calibration).

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    Hey

    you geniuses are right! the normal temp with around 10-20% load is in the late 30's around 38-40 degrees c underload im guessing would be in the late 40's

    so if this is the case whats the MAX core speed i can o.c. the q6600 @? currently running at 3.01ghz

    cheeers

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    That is a question none of us can answer I'm afraid!

    First you will need to decide what core temperatures you are happy with under full load personally i would be not wanting to exceed 65&#176;C

    Then increase the speed in small steps checking the stability and load temperatures as you go.

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    Hi.

    If this is of any use, speedfan can be calibrated to near enough the correct temperature.
    I found that my Q6600 case temp was being reported at 11 degrees out.

    Go to configure / advanced / winbond / temperature 2

    There is a nice guide on another forum that explains how to calibrate all the core temps as well. Under max load they should be approx 5 degrees higher than case temp.

    Cant get my Q6600past 3Ghz at Vcore of 1.45V. Think I have a bad one.
    Previous E6550 overclocked so easy.

    Re: Q6600 @ 3Ghz temp check

    1.45v is incredibly high for a 3GHz overclock.. mine gets to 3.15GHz before i need a voltage boost.
    maybe you'd just be better off leaving it at stock?

    as for the 80'C.. that's far too high!
    mine gets upto 59'C at 3.6GHz after prime'ing it for about 3 or 4 hours.
