right now im idling at the following :
core 0 : 37c
core 1 : 37c
core 2: 36c
core 3: 34c
(ive read others were getting temps in the lower 30's )
now with a stress test w/ prime95 with a duration of 10 min i get the following temps.
core 0 : 62
core 1 : 65
core 2: 59
core 3: 60
but one thing i did notice was that at around the 10 minute mark, all 4 temps seem to be hovering around 58-60.
call me immature, but i get a bit jealous hearing others with this same cooler not even breaking passed 45c.
the whole point of this cooler was to overclock. based on these reports, would i be able to safely overclock my pc ?
And to overclock, from my experience, as long as you stay within 90C it's acceptable. I usually thrive to get lower than 75C for longevity purposes, but I always WC which gives me a lot more to work with.
No problem, I'm just tired of people exaggerating and spoofing everything up. I actually joined this forum because people here are actually descent, for the most part. Even though most people mean well, a lot of kids get sucked in the "hype" or the new tech; always double check if your not sure about something.
