Default Re: Quick help needed. E6600 temps, not overclocked.

Could be. But it still doesn't explain the 10+ degrees of difference between the Tc (which is from the thermal resistor position right under the center of the ihs) and the cores temps (taken from the digital sensors)...

The temps are fine if they don't go over 60c.
From the Intel specs sheets the thermal specification for the E6600 is 60.1 C Tc, and that leaves me with about 3 degrees to play with (remember I hit 57 C on the Tc, at stock). Way too little to even consider an overclock...
