Q9550 temp problems Tags: CPUs Product Last response: November 27, 2009 12:59 PM in CPUs Share boeta August 24, 2009 4:00:13 PM I bought a q9550 and the core temp's differ by about 5 degrees and more when just running normal programs like ocz. Is this normal? I am using the stock cooler, what is the max fan speed? mine reaches +-2000rpm at max revs. And when 100% under load it gets up to 70-80 degrees C. thats too hot right? I have orderd a Coolermaster Centurion CM590 (CM-RC590K)case. Will this make a big diference with this temperature problem? curently using a small case More about : q9550 temp problems grieve August 24, 2009 4:05:11 PM yes, 70-80 is too hot...
