CPU overclocked from 2.4GHz to 2.66GHz @ 67oC 100% CPU load Tags: CPUs Stress Test Overclocking Last response: May 14, 2010 12:10 AM in Overclocking Share Jason761 May 6, 2010 10:51:42 PM I have a Core 2 Quad Q6600 overclocked from 2.4GHz to 2.66GHz. I did a stress test and at the middle of the stress test at got 67oC. Is this too hot for a CPU at 100% load?

Is this okay too? m 0 l stridervm May 7, 2010 12:24:51 AM It's fine, just making it past 74c is the danger zone, which can cause stress tests to fail by temperature alone. Still making it lower should still be your goal. m 0 l Related resources CPU load at 100%, but GPU <50% - Forum CPU+GPU Temps Slowly Rising to 100C on minimal load - Forum Overclocking an Intel Q6600 2.4ghz CPU - Forum [HELP] CPU 100% Load proccess -VMware - Forum CPU at 85C at 100% Full load - Forum Can't find your answer ?

And I dont think its gonna fit in my small case m 0 l cadder a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking May 7, 2010 12:32:22 AM Yes, that's OK at idle. Idle temps can vary, some of us think the sensors are not accurate at lower temperatures. You can put an aftermarket cooler on that Q6600 and overclock it well past 3GHz, AND its temps will be lower than what you are getting now. m 0 l Jason761 May 14, 2010 12:10:43 AM bump m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
