65C under load ok?

I have an E8200@3.2GHz and under load its gets up to 65/66C and it idles at 40C exactly.

This isn't dangerous to the cpu is it?

  1. No, 65C is awesome as far as not killing the CPU. It could be a lot better with an aftermarket cooler, but if you aren't doing any overclocking, then that temperature is just fine.
  2. hehe I already have it oc'd a bit, stock speed is 2.66GHz.

    My motherboard has a fsb wall of 1600mhz(effective, 400 actual), the box even says '1600mhz oc' right on the front so I doubt I will get any more out of it.
  3. Unfortunately, my friend and I ran into the same kind of wall when we were doing a dry ice run last weekend. The motherboard wouldn't boot over 343FSB, when the BIOS, manual, and website all said that it can natively support 400FSB CPUs. So, instead of getting 5GHz+ like we were hoping for, we only made it to 4.2 :/

    Nah man you should be fine BUT you didnt mentioned what heatsink you are using? If you have a stock than you may have some extra potential out of this cpu. let me know.
  6. I'm using some $20 rosewill cooler with a copper core, I hear it's equalivent to Intel's stock cooler that has a copper core, I bought it as I bought my cpu used on ebay as newegg no longer carried E8200s so I had to buy a cooler to go with it.

    I found a link to it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835200034&cm_re=rosewill_heatsink-_-35-200-034-_-Product

    I can get the machine to post at 3.6GHz however loading windows always retarts the machine, this mobo says 1600mhz oc(400 actual) and going even 1mhz over that will cause the machine to not load windows, makes me wonder if perhaps it's a chipset limitation and the sata controller fails at fsb's
  7. Those temps are fine , but if you want to lower them , you should buy a nice cooler for your CPU.
