I am currently working on getting my E6400 oc'ed and I am trying to figure out temperatures in the process. I have read both the c2d overclock guide and c2d temp guide. I understand some of the material but I still need some guidance on some things.
Here are my results and variables from SpeedFan:
Tcase (I am using Temp2 in Speedfan) = Idle 17C & Load 46C SpeedFan
Is there a dry-ice bucket in your case.
a 2C delta between Tcase and Tjunction?
For whatever reason, I could not get all of the sensors working or SpeedFan giving proper readings until I uninstalled it and then reinstalled it with CPU at stock speeds. When I OCd back up to 3K MHz it suddenly started working correctly.
If you havent gone into the advanced section and changed any of the temp offsets... that is really weird.
If you have by now applied +15c offsets to SpeedFan Core 0 / Core 1, then your Load temps appear to be appropriate. Although Tcase (CPU) Idle shouldn't be below Ambient, the intake temp at floor level may be a few degrees lower than a wall thermostat 5' higher. Taking this into consideration, Idle to Load temps may not be perfectly linear. If corrected Load temps make sense relative to Ambient, Vcore, computer case cooling and CPU cooler, then an Idle discepancy of a few degrees is justified.
