I am overclocking my E6300 quite generously, as seen in my signature, and I need to keep the vcore at 1.5125 in order for it to remain stable. I am looking at my CPU temps on Sandra Lite and it said 54c. At first, that didn't bother me, but then I realized that my video card was running at that exact temperature. I remembered a different tool, Speedfan, and downloaded it, and it says that I am running at either 39c or 34c. I uploaded a pic to clarify this, as my lack of experience with Speedfan has me sorta lost.
Coretemp is telling my 45-46c idle and . Well, it looks as if I'm in need of some better cooling, the only problem is I would like to get a cooling system that doesn't require me to take the motherboard off and mount it with screws. Are there better HSF units that use the same push-pegs that the stock HSF uses?
How much better of a job can the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 do than stock cooling? If it's only a difference of a few degrees, then I probably won't bother, but if it can bring my load temp down to the 40's instead of being at 60c under load, then I'll get it. Or are my expectations too high for an air-cooled system?
