Core 1 and 2 stay at around 35 degrees with 0% load, and core 3 and 4 stay at around 30 degrees, this is all only at 2.4 GHz. Is this normal or is it a little too high, I'm using the tuniq tower 120 btw. Also would It be safe to overclock to say ~3.2 GHz at this temp.
Also can anyone tell me whats the maximum temp I can have on my CPU with no load and under load before its dangerously high?
My computer is in my basement, and it feels like winter in here sometimes, and its summer where I live.
The programs I use to see my temps is Coretemp.
My comp spec are an 8800gt oc'd to 700 core, 4 gb of ddr2 800 ram, and this is my motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
As said before I use the Tuniq Tower 120 as my cooler with arctic silver 5 thermal paste
Oh yea and my Q6600 is G0 stepping.
