Overclocking E6300 and temperature

I am having a little bit of trouble with the temperature of my E6300. My system include : E6300, P5k/Epu, Ati 3870, with Cpu cooler Coolermaster Gemin S . I am runing at 3 Ghz (430 X 7) and stable. Core temp gives 50 c idle and 62 c full load. I just wonder if anyone can confirme the temperature or give some suggession about why my CPU temperature so high. Thank you very much.

  1. Thank you for your help. I am using coretemp and hardware monitor (from the same website) to monitor the temperature. My coretemp tjunction is 85 C . Also what is highest temperature for safe operation for an E6300.
  2. ^Less than 85C(Tj Max) by manufacture standard. I personally won't let a CPU go above 70C, ever, even for a Quad.

    From the Core i7 and Core 2 Temperature Guide - http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/221745-29-sticky-core-core-temperature-guide

    Scale 6: Duo
    E6x00: Tcase Max 61c, Stepping L2, TDP 65W, Idle 12W
    E4x00: Tcase Max 61c, Stepping L2, TDP 65W, Idle 12W
    E21x0: Tcase Max 61c, Stepping L2, TDP 65W, Idle 8W
    X6800: Tcase Max 60c, Stepping B2, TDP 75W, Idle 24W
    E6x00: Tcase Max 60c, Stepping B2, TDP 65W, Idle 24W (Spec# SL9Sx)
    E6x00: Tcase Max 60c, Stepping B2, TDP 65W, Idle 12W (Spec# SL9Zx)
    E6x20: Tcase Max 60c, Stepping B2, TDP 65W, Idle 12W

    -Tcase/Tjunction-
    --60--/--65--65-- Hot
    --55--/--60--60-- Warm
    --50--/--55--55--Safe <--
    --25--/--30--30-- Cool


    Tcase = CPU temperature
    Tjunction = Core temperature


    Your E6300 is either an L2 Stepping or a B2 Stepping. Regardless, Intel's Thermal Specifications are within 1c, as shown in the above Scale.
