    your CPU temps

    basically just wondering where most people feel comfortable when it comes to their CPU temperates under load.

    print screens and stuff are welcome, but keep them small

    hopefully help people determine what's 'safe' for a CPU aswell.

    Oh s**t I just voted my idle load, my full load temp would be around 45 to 50 c on all 4 cores.

    Re: your CPU temps

    thats a hell of a seperation in temperatures matty.

    Why has a loaded temp of 31degC or less anyway?

    Mine are 59-64 from last night. I think thats pretty good, but your poll makes that look far too hot.

    i dunno.. some people have subzero CPU coolers..
    i'd have mine at 29'C under 100&#37; loads once, on air..
    this was last winter at 1.2GHz though

    Re: your CPU temps

    Well just checked so this is the figure for today, been running F@H all night but swapped to Intel Burn Test for a bit more heat and,



    46&#176;C, 3.5GHz E6550 and my NB and 3870 in the same water loop.

    For a bit of additional info when running F@H GPU client and CPU client concurrently CPU temp is 37&#186;C and GPU temp 34&#186;C, and when running Orthos (blend mode) max CPU temp was 38&#186;C.

    Re: your CPU temps

    I try to keep my E6320 under 50c. It is running at 3ghz (1.83 stock) and generally stays around 45c under load. This is with a Coolermaster TX-2 and a Antec 300.

    CoreTemp says:
    46C
    43C
    42C
    47C

    All under full load constantly doing grid crunching. Gets a bit hotter if you load the CPU with a some clever program that runs without any stalls.

    Re: your CPU temps

    God, mine gets up to about 65 on full load, have seen it at 70 when my room is hot . That's at 3.0gHz.

    Hopefully thats only because of my badly mounted heatsink, tomorrow it should be down a fair bit... I hope .

    70 isn't really that high tbh.. mine can hit 75'C if i go upto 3.8GHz.
    dunno what this case would be like though..

    a badly mounted heatsink is a useless heatsink tbh. you might aswell not have one on
