Solved What Temps should I expect? Tags: Heatsinks Thermal Compound Overclocking Last response: February 5, 2010 11:04 PM in Overclocking Share mtnboydl January 30, 2010 7:42:08 PM Hey all...just finished my build last night, and I'm wondering what sort of temps I should be expecting from it all if the thermal paste is set properly. Core i7-975 @ stock clocks Cooler Master V8 heatsink Arctic Cooling 5 thermal paste I'm running Prime95 and getting temps maxing out at 60C. Doesn't that seem a little high?

I usually get 58c when loaded using the h50. And similar temps when using the Core contact freezer. Now overclock it! Share JackNaylorPE a c 171 K Overclocking January 30, 2010 7:55:43 PM Tried lowering CPU Voltage ? On my son's box (920 OC'd for everyday use to 3.7), we dropped the CPU voltage from 1.250 to 1.125 and got a significant temp drop. BTW, If this is a fresh build I'd consider exchanging that 1066 memory for 1600 so you can overclock a bit better. m 0 l Related resources What type of temps should i expect on hi100 just running base temps? - Forum What temps should I expect from aftermarket 290's in crossfire? - Forum What temps should I be expecting? - Forum what kind of frame rate should I expect? - Forum What FPS Should I Expect? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

But still at some point you will need to raise the base clock. So i would exchange it for 1600 mhz ram. m 0 l mtnboydl February 5, 2010 11:04:14 PM Best answer selected by mtnboydl. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
