Closed Intel core 2 quad q9400 overheating Tags: CPUs Core Speedfan Intel Quad Last response: September 10, 2010 10:18 PM in CPUs Share canyoncarl August 31, 2010 3:45:15 PM Hello, At full load SpeedFan 4.0 reports my core temperatures as 100C, 93C, 90C and 92C. Is it dangerous to keep running it that way?

Your CPU should be throttling down to keep itself from burning up. What kind of idle temps are you seeing? Double check that SpeedFan is giving you accurate reading. Install HWMonitor and compare readings. | Report abuse hell_storm2004 CPUs Expert August 31, 2010 4:40:18 PM Ya do what WR2 said. I think it could be you need a new TIM. Your old one may have dried up or you may not have applied at all. | Report abuse canyoncarl September 7, 2010 12:49:35 AM Thanks, I ended up putting in a new heatsink (Zalman CNPS9900A Led). It dropped the idle temps an average of 8C and the full throttle temps about 45C). So much for the standard Intel heatsink. | Report abuse canyoncarl September 10, 2010 1:48:56 PM Best answer selected by canyoncarl. | Report abuse Mousemonkey CPUs Authority September 10, 2010 10:18:26 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Intel core 2 quad q9400 overheating> Related ressources: ForumIntel Q9400 CORE 2 QUAD .
