So how do load temps on the 2.3GHz Phenom compare to the 2.4GHz Q6600? I can't find any info. Just curious.

The phenoms have a higher power draw than any of intel's quad cores, so temps should be higher...

I'm surprised techreport didn't include actual thermal properties, they are usually pretty thorough.

95w - Phenom

95w - Q6600

Same according to that. So there shouldn't be much of a difference if any?

I wouldn't go by those numbers, but yeah the difference is probably minimal.

Here's another one showing Phenoms have higher power draw:

Thanks I saw that over on anandtech this morning also. Seems to be practically inconsequential (the differential).

I'm really impressed with how cool running this Conroe is. I turned down all my fans (enermax 120mm) last night and the computer is not only quiet - but still runs cool load temps as well.

No one has reported Phenom temps so can't say, as for TDP Intel rate theirs as average while AMD rates their max, Although it draws more power it does not mean the run hoter, AMD's cores are bigger as such there is more service aera for the HSF to draw and disapate.

I found 2 Phenom temps numbers from XtremeSystems forum, one here (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showpost.php?p=2597030&postcount=71) from user KTE overclocked Phenom 9500 to 2.6GHz with temp at 47C but the other user Justapost (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showpost.php?p=2599952&postcount=96)'s Phenom 9500 overclocked it to 2.5GHz with voltage increased a bit caused the temp soared to around 83C with AMD stock cooler, it very unstable.

My friend completed build Q6600 system with Tuniq Tower 120-LFB cooler last week. I chat with him online last night about it, he told me that Q6600 is overclocked to 3.5GHz and the idle temp is 23C. He ran Prime95 overnight and checked next morning to found out the full load temp stayed at 28C all the time.

Really very impressive temp, I cant wait to upgrade to Q9450 soon. :D

My E6850 hits 43-44c @ load. This is stock settings and with my fans turned down to their lowest settings. Approx. 1200rpm.

Can you give a real world example?

I would not recommend doing this... but once just for testing... I completely stopped the fan on my Zalman 9700 on my Q6600 and temps barely went up at all when on idle :p I keep it on the lowest setting... even when playing games anymore.... :)
