I know there are a million temp threads, but Im a newbie doing overclocking for the first time. Heres my system:
Antec P180B (with the new raised MB tray)
E6600 w/ Ultra-120 Extreme
2GB DDR-800 RAM
Right now, I am running at 3.0ghz at 1.3 vcore. My idle CPU temp is 44c. At 100% load it goes to about 55-58c. Isnt this on the high side with a Ultra-120 extreme? Will the temps lower a bit once the AS5 burns in? I just installed it two days ago.
My question is, how high is too high? I want to reach a speed of at least 3.2-3.4ghz. What temps should I stay away from when trying this? Also, whats a typical vcore setting for trying these speeds?
get some arctic silver 5 and lap the heat sink, and reseat the ultra make sure its tight
Yeah....i wonder if you're getting good contact with your HS/F as well. I would have expected much better temps using an Ultra-120 Extreme, and you have a decent case also. Don't expect much change from the AS5 after "burn-in".....i've never noticed any differences in the years i've been using it and AS3. What are you using to read your temps.....TAT/CoreTemp .95 ?
