I first installed it running at stock speeds (2.4Ghz) and my idle temps were at 13c-15c and load never got past 35c. I bumped my speeds to 8x400 (3.2Ghz) and now my temps are 23c-25c idle and 47c-50c after 2 hours of Prime95.
Did i get lucky here or is the Q6600 G0 that much cooler
That's about spot on. I got a FreeZone, and I get about 30-35 playing Crysis for about an hour...
