Core 2 Duo Idle temps Tags: CPUs Core Overclocking Last response: December 22, 2006 9:33 PM in Overclocking Share wowcro December 22, 2006 4:15:29 PM Hi There, I just installed a Core 2 Duo E6600 on my system. Other specs: Case: Antec Nine Hundred Mobo: P5B Deluxe Wi/Fi RAM: Corsair XMS2 DDR2 800 VGA: Geforce 8800 GTS I am in the Bios and I am reading around 49C/120F CPU Temp. Is that high for a Core 2 Duo? Please let me know. Also, I did not do any overclocking yet. The system is set to stock. Thank you in advance, wowcro More about : core duo idle temps sarsoft December 22, 2006 4:25:25 PM With 49C idle your c2d will survive but to me its little bit on a high side. What kind of cpu cooler are you using? Try to adjust your cooler? or reapply your paste. What kind of airflow do you have in your case? RichardJSampson December 22, 2006 4:48:08 PM If indeed that is your die temperature, then that is definitely high. The airflow in the 900 case is most certainly good; I don't think that's the cause. As many have said, BIOS is notoriously unreliable in terms of reporting temperature accurately. Google and download Coretemp, and let us know what temperature that reports.

I also use Coretemp idle 44C and load 53C at 3.0ghz. Use ORTHOS, or Prime95 to get your c2d under load. wowcro December 22, 2006 9:33:46 PM Hey Guys, Ok I installed windows and core Temp Beta 0.94.
