Hi temps while running Prime95 is it Normal ?????
 
I just overclocked my Q6600 CPU from 2.4 to 3.0 the system seem stable prime havent detected any errors it started as high as 80-90c now down to 77-72c is this normal ,what I mean is does the temp gets high because I am running prime, other wise it dosent get this high or is this as high as its going to run while the CPU is overclocked......too high......will it drop down???

yes that's very high... if any program uses all 4 cores fully then you will get the same temps... and no it won't magically drop down unless you get better cooling and you really should... anything more than 75*C under full load is not safe for continuous use

Definately look into a better cooler and some good thermal paste. I really didn't think a good cooler could help as much as it does but I am now a firm believer after experiencing the Xigmatek one I have in my system.

ok guys so the temp now is at 45c idle with my duorb is it still too hot??? when i built the system i used the duorb for space saving reason it didnt have a bad review and some artic silver paste when it wasent overclocked temps at idle would be 29-33c

Factory heatsinks are no good except for very mild overclocks. You really need to go after market.

it is a aftermarket....question is how do you know how much to tighten up the screws on the brackets on the CPU i really didn't had a clue so i tight it up and stop as soon as I felt some light resistant

When working with any computer or electronic components I always find it best to screw just enough so it feels secure. You always want everything to have room to expand and contract with the temperature.

I tightened my heatsink down tight until I couldn't tighten it anymore. Seems to have worked out fine.
