Oh man...Are these normal temps???

Hey guys,

I just ran prime 95 for like 15mins on my q9550 and I got a little scared because these temps seemed pretty damn high...

I am using an Artic Cooling Freezer 7 (Rev 1)

Here is a pic of my temps:

I just want to know if this is normal or if something is wrong.

  1. The temps seem normal. I thought a Q9000 series had a TJMax of 95C. Might be wrong. But seeing the overclock its not too bad except for Core 0.

    Might want to check your heatsink and make sure it is sitting properly as well as the thermal grease is applied properly. Also try some other apps such as SpeedFan and others to make sure its reading right.
  2. +1 those temps are right on the money for that cooler. The Artic 7 is a good cooler ut it isnt anything special so unless you go out and get a bigger heatsink you wont do much better then that.
  3. The best air cooler is the ThermalRight Ultra120. But I have a Zalman CPNS 9700 that cools my Q6600 to a max of 55c under full load running at 3GHz.
  4. best air cooler is the noctua ud14 followed by the prolimatech megashadow and thermalright venomous x
  5. You are worried about 66-72C while running Prime95??

    Those parts also have overprotection built into them and will throttle back if you hit 100C. Normal use will not get to those same temps.

    Now you can sleep at night...
  6. Most Q6600's will run at 3.0 GHz with little or no increase in vcore. That means the stock cooler is adequate if the system is in a decent case. And the 65 nm coolers are about twice the size of the 45 nm coolers (2.5" high as opposed to 1.25" high).
