Default What temps must you watch?

On the left is idle, on the right is loaded with Prime95 x2.



I need a clarification on what to watch. Coretemp is represented by Core 0 & Core 1, the boards default CPU is Temp 1 and the board temp itself is supposed to be Temp 2.

Do I just need to keep Temp 1 under 50? Or do I need to keep coretemp under 50? I did have to calibrate Core 0 & 1 to match with Coretemp utility by 15 degrees. Another note, I ran 2.4ghz at stock voltage on my Asrock DualVSTA board with stock cooler and never seen the coretemps as high as they are now with the Tuniq and a small voltage bump. They never got out of the 40s on the Asrock.

in that order

Your temps look perfectly fine. Though I suggest using coretemp or intel thermal analysis tool.

Coretemp is Core 0 & Core 1. They read the same all day long.

I'm just a lil weary of the high core temps.

hmm I forgot RAM and mos fets.

but your C4D sticks only take 2.2vdimm anyway. they won't get that hot to worry about.

I guess my temps are good. I looked around some, seems a lot of people are hitting up around my temps. I thought e4300s ran cooler, but evidently not, must be absorbed as part of the overclocking headroom.

I'm feeding the Dominators 2.178 in BIOS. NB is getting 1.563. CPU is at 1.34375.

wait... you're using a Tuniq, with less than stock vcore, and youre loading (with only Prime, not ITAT) at 63? That doesn't sound right..

do you have bad airflow in your case??

If your CPU is running 63c that is not fine.

It is running hotter than what Intel says it should run at under normal conditions (ie, not overclocked). E4300 is either 60.1c or 61c. Check their site if you want to know.

I don't let my cpu go past 56c prime95 personally. (e6400)

63c is fine on air for the C2D.

Intel rates the processor at 61.4c under normal conditions (I just checked).

How can 63c overclocked be fine?

Intel's thermal limits are higher than AMD's, IIRC.

I will try to look for a link to where I saw a test of removal of the HSFs.
