  1. On the Intel D945GCNL you can upgrade it to the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6700 with Bios 0010 or better http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.aspx?Boardname=d945gcnl. Don't Forget to get some termal paste for resetting your HSF.

  2. i know and today evening was searching on net about How apply this termal paste. is this particular processor makes huge temperature ?
  3. Nope, but since most of these processors on the market right now are OEM/tray that means that they wont come with a HSF. Without a new Intel® HSF with the thermal paste preapplied to the HSF, it is just a friendly reminder to help you get your system up and running as fast as possible. The temp on the Intel Core™ 2 Duo E6700 is very low at 60.1c.

  4. i have this problem with my CPU (intel P4 H, 3.00Ghz)at the moment, Bios reads Processor heat as 99C most of time, recently i replace this thermal paste but nothing change and in that moment i have notice something, my Processor was no heat at all when i plug it, after few minutes its again 99C but CPU runs fine, some times its run 12hs or more.
    i feel my heat sensors not working properly
    do you have any idea what is happened there ?
  5. ive got the e7600 and to be honest, its quick but i kind of would recomend people to get a cheap socket 1155 motherboard

    motherboard £70
    i3 cpu £92
    8gb ddr3 £80

    so for £242 you can get a better sandy bridge pc that you can allways upgrade to a i5 2500 or i7 2600 at a later date

    this is better than spending £62 on new cpu

    £180 difference for complete new pc

    i upgraded at the start of last year and my computer is not a whole lot faster i think
    becasue it is bottlenecked by my ram and hardrive (3gb ddr3 and 2tb hdd)
