Default Re: Should my temps be cooler?

Well i though i would lower the speed of the cpu alittle, this would allow for a lower voltage i have my cpu now at 3.2GHz ive been running Orthos for just over 1 hour! ...... im on 1.3750v, my idle temps are 33c - 34c and load (Orthos) temps are 44c - 46c! ..... seems alittle better!

That sounds about right man, look like you have things under control.

You should disable C1E Support & Speedstep. They tend to cause some problems when you try to overclock.

This is really good guide for people who are new or unsure about overclocking.

There's guide for Quad too from same poster in this URL. Good luck!

I have to set my cpu voltage to something like 1.365 in the bios to see 1.33 in windows using speedfan or asus probe or whichever.

LOL, your temps are extremely good for air cooling. 1.5v is a lot of vcore and I'm surprised your temps were that low with that vcore and MHZ.

If it makes you feel better, 4 instances of prime95 small FFT's sends my temps from 55c idle to 80c in a matter of seconds. Tjunction for this chip is 100c and I've had all 4 cores above 80c and it didn't throttle (not sure where the throttle starts with this chip), and the only reason I can't run my cpu even faster 24/7 is my mobo PWM gets too hot and causes a shutdown.

Sure, these B3 cpu's get hot, but that doesn't seem to limit their OC potential at all from what I can tell, and I'm not worried about not having the lowest temps, especially since nothing I normally do pushes it like 4 instances of p95 small FFT's anyway.
