Core 2 Duo 6700 with Stock Fan running too hot Tags: CPUs Core Temperature Last response: May 17, 2007 2:39 PM in CPUs Share EvilEgg May 17, 2007 12:21:43 PM I just got a Core 2 Duo 6700 and installed it on a Intel D975XBX2 motherboard. I'm still looking for software that will allow me to monitor the temperature during operation, but when i boot up, the temperature in the Hardware monitor in the BIOS shows my CPU at 50C. That seems to be too hot, and i'm worried it will get a lot hotter when i start playing some games and put some strain on the cpu. What could cause the temperature, and what can i do to lower it. I already took the whole thing out of the case, so the case is not the problem.

Check for compatibility before downloading. There is a sticky: http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/Core-Duo-Temper... 50* is not too hot. You could try removing the heatsink and reapplying thermal compound or buying a better heatsink: Thermalright Ultra 120 Tuniq Tower 120 Scythe Infinity Zalman CNPS 9500/9700 Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 pro. EvilEgg May 17, 2007 12:49:45 PM Thanks for that link for TAT. The chips run at around 45C at low load. And max out at about 62~65 when i put 100% load on both of them. That doesn't seem too bad, and i'm guessing since my cpu, board and the tat are from intel, it should be pretty acurate. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

How is your case ventilation; do you have at least a couple of at least 80mm fans to cool the interior?! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
