Noob questions Tags: Motherboards Temperature Overclocking Last response: December 17, 2009 9:07 AM in Overclocking Share PSUdude December 11, 2009 3:13:45 PM Sorry if there is a thread out there about these questions but i couldn't find them or they didnt answer my questions. I have 2 questions. 1. I have gathered, from research, that there may not be a direct sensor on my mobo but CPUID Hwmonitor is displaying a temperature for it. How is this value estimated? 2. before i start tweaking my chipset I want to a. accurately monitor the temperature and b. know what dangerous temperatures for it are. Can anybody help me with this? Thanks alot More about : noob questions PSUdude December 15, 2009 11:56:46 PM I have found that this is a very hard topic to gather information about. Does nobody know or does it not matter enough to merit a response? I'm just lookin' for guidelines, I wont sue you if I fry my motherboard.

I'm assuming it is a Q6600 with the details in your signature. I use speedfan with a Win7 gadget on the sidebar. I may be wrong but I've seen from me mate Google that... For Q6600: Temp - max T-case = 62c Voltage - max voltage = 1.372v thousands and thousands are having fun with the q6600. Just stay within margin assuming you can see the temps and volts running Prime95 Torture Test. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
