Q6600 B3 -- Are these readings alright? Tags: Core Core Temp CPUs Overclocking Last response: July 26, 2009 11:13 AM in Overclocking Share jabbye July 23, 2009 5:33:41 PM Hi there. I've got an Intel Q6600 B3 @ 2.4GHz. I recently swapped my faulty HSF with a XIGMATEK Achilles S1284. I've overclocked the CPU slightly to 3.0GHz. These are the specs; Core speed: 2998.3MHz Multiplier: x9 Bus speed: 333.2MHz Rated FSB: 1332.6MHz I'm running a FSB/Memory ratio of 1:1. vCore is currently set to Auto and right now CPU-Z reports a core voltage of 1.296V. The span seems to be 1.205V -- auto -- 1.3125 V (Though I might not recall correctly) on my MSI P35 Neo-F. I'm currently running p95 for my load temperatures; Real Temp 3.00: Core 1: 63C Core 2: 63C Core 3: 60C Core 4: 59C Core Temp 0.99.4: Core 1: 58C Core 2: 58C Core 3: 56C Core 4: 54C Idle temperatures are 38C, 38C, 38C, 37C in Real Temp -- 33, 31, 30, 30 in Core Temp. Are these temperatures alright or will I end up with a bricked CPU? All replies are greatly appreciated. Just realised the Tj Max of Real Temp was set to 90 and 85 in Core Temp.

Either set of temperatures are fine. jabbye July 23, 2009 7:05:06 PM jsc said:Assuming the worst, RealTemp reports higher temperatures. Even those are below 70 C. Either set of temperatures are fine. I forgot to add that the Tj Max was set to 90 (the default) in Real Temp, does this dramatically change your opinion about the temperatures?
