Default Re: Q6600 3.00GHZ @ STOCK COOLER

Those idle and load temperatures are based on the night, when the room is hot after two pc's generating alot of heat, also quite hot outside now summer is coming up, so that is what i have seen so far.

Notice: Load temp is based on a 100% Load at a period of 15 minutes constant, i would never experience that if im playing games even with any application to be honest, so i can say this is now safe.

Solution: Lower Voltage! 1.450v to 1.300v - It is stable i done a couple test's with stressing etc and it is fine and working smoothly, iv'e still orderd a better heatsink for it so that will lower it even more, im guessing Idle: 35c - Load: 55c Im hoping!
Yea you shouldn't need 1.45V in order to hit 3.0Ghz. I'm running 3.2Ghz right now with 1.41V. That looks like a lot better temps though.
