Your temps are safe(a little high but still safe)....over 70-75 start to watch it

http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL9... - Full specs for your cpu

Thermal Specification: 62.2°C(@ the top center of the heat spreader...the core is a good 10 - 15 hotter....so your good)

Is the TMG1 not liquid cooling? or is it the TMG i 1? AC Freezer copy....

Thanks for your information.
Its the thermaltake TMG i 1 fan.
I also have another question, i own a ASUS p5k deluxe wifi ap and it is reporting a temperature of 55C is that ok? I think the temperature is a little high because of the 8800 GTX that i have.

when you say 65C do you mean the core temp? Cause if that's the case temp then your core temps must be pretty close to thermal shutdown.

Yes 65C core temp.

martinete, as nukemaster pointed out, your Core temperature is OK, however, to learn more about your temps, you may want to take a look at the following Sticky: Core 2 Quad and Duo Temperature Guide http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/221745-29-core-quad-t... ... Pay close attention to Section 6, Scale 3.

Hope this helps,

Well if you want a bit better cooling then get a Thermaltake Ultra 120 Extreme and use 2 low-med rpm fans. You'll get a cool running cpu and quite fans.

CompuTronix thanks for your information but the page couldn´t be found.
I dont think that i have to chnage my computer fan, instead of that is it safe to raise the voltage of the fan?

Sorry the above link didn't work. Tom's has been very sluggish the past few days. I replaced the link a few minutes ago and it checks out OK, so give it another try. The answers to your questions are in the C2Q/D Temp Guide. Also, read graysky's C2Q/D overclocking Guide: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/240001-29-howto-overc...

Hope this helps,
