Q6600 3.2ghz temps

Ok, so i ran Prime95 with the small FFT's option..

Started at 06:57:33 this morning, and the dam electric went at 14:48:12 so that almost 8 hours. I was going to try and keep it running for 12 hours! :(

Luckily for me i left Core temp on and the logger :D

The highest my cores went were 09:23:12,69°,69°,66°,66°,,,33°,69°,100%

I would say the average was around 67°,67°,63°,63°

I must say am happy with that. 8 hours and stayed under 70 on cores? Heres my log if you want to see more. It goes alot cooler later aswell.

  1. Good temps. Stock cooler?
  2. cheers, no its the Asus Silent Square EVO w/ OCZ Freeze Extreme
  3. Yeah, 3.2 GHz is a little high for the stock cooler unless you get really lucky and win the CPU lottery - get a CPU with a really low VID.

    I am running a Q6600 in an Antec case with a TRUE at 1.425 volts nominal, drooping to 1.40 volts.

    I like the 900 case, great cooling, but the case needs some work if you want halfway decent cable mangement:
  4. cheers for that link mate.

    I had an OCZ SilentXtreme 800W PSU when i 1st got this system. A mate of mine did the cables and i must say did a cracking job on it, was really neat imo, al post a pic soon.

    But that PSU died and is getting RMAed, so i bought a WinPower and the cables on it are really short, there tidy just not hidden, if that makes sence lol.

    What clocks yours Q6600 at and temps?

    edit, heres a pic of my setup now, this PSU is hopefully just a temporary 1 untill i get my SilentXtream back or i got a modular. Plus this WinPower makes quite an anoying high pitch sound lol

    As you can see the 8-pin (i think its the 12v) cable ONLY JUST reaches, i mean only just lol, with my OCZ i could thread it around the case so it was hidden, the wires show and are ugly, no wrap around them, i think i might drill an hole next to the PSU and thread the lot through to the back, that will get rid of the big horrible power cable.
