Re: E6600 + Zalman 9700 Temp Check Please (luv a newb - it's Christmas!)
Core 2 Duo Processor: e6600
Overclocked to: 3.3
IDLE TAT temperature:52
Orthos LOAD TAT temperature: 64
TAT Load temperature: low 70's
CPU Cooling Solution Name: zalman 9700
Ambient room temperature 75 farenheit
Case temp 30 centigrade.
Given my voltage, overclock, case and ambient temps, do my cpu temps seem too high.
I would have thought that with the zalman 9700 that my temps would be lower. I reaplied the arctic silver 5 too see if it would help but it has not.
Maybe since my room temp and case temps are pretty warm this is the best the zalman can do.
