Intel Pentium Dual Core E6300 Hot?!!?

Hey guys im not sure whether my cpu is too hot for custom cooling,

Intel Pentium Dual Core E6300 2.80GHz overclocked to 3.60ghz stock voltage

Idle Temps:
*EDIT*24C

PRIME95 Full 100% load (10 minute stress)
56-57c Max

Gaming Temps
45-49c

FAN: Artic Freezer pro 7

Are these temps poor for an aftermarket cooler? should i buy another fan?thanks in advance

  1. Those temps are not that bad for an overclocked C2D on an inexpensive aftermarket cooler like that.

    aaaa it aint a 65nm chip "Core 2 Duo" its a "Pentium Dual Core" 45nm Wolfdale...so im guessing these are bad temps for a 45nm cooler chip. dang

    It is not really all that bad for a 45nm chip either. Sorry a bit tired and read your OP a bit wrong the first time through. You will not damage your chip any @ those temps.
  4. I have a E5300 (stock 2.6GHz), same core/chip as yours, OCed to 3.6GHz on a cheap $15 Thermaltake cooler, and my temps are basically the same as yours. idles at 30'C, gaming at 50'C, and Prime95 at 58'C
