    Is this voltage and temp ok for years of use?

    2.6C @ 3.12Ghz (240FSB, 1.65v) Air Cooled with Intel Stock HSF, Using Artic Silver and very good case airflow.

    Temp at Full Load 67.5c

    Do you think that voltage and temp is ok?

    Or should I drop it to like 235FSB for 3.055Ghz @ 1.6v which pulls in 62.5c at full load.

    Dang!

    67.5C?!

    That's crazy. The Athlon Dies at 70C, I wouldn't leave it that high. No way.

    Atleast get lots of case fans

    Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 3.6GHz on Water | 8GB DDR2 | 2x 74GB Raptor RAID0 | 250GB Storage | P5E | 2900XT @ 850 Core | DVD-RW | 2x 24" Widescreen LCD | Saitek Eclipse | Logitech G5

    P4's can run hotter than Athlons and still be ok, they are tough chips, I don't think that temp is to fantastic really. I think the lower 60's C is the target point though. Obviously having it at the higher voltage and temp reduces its life though, and this one needs to have a life of a few years, so thats what I was questioning.

    There are 5 case fans in the case, two intake on the front, an intake on the side panel blowing directly onto the mobo, and two exhaust in the back, and of course the PSU exhaust at the very top.

    I would take the summer heat into considerationa nd drop it to 1.6 and let it run at whatever clockrate is stable there, just to give it some more breathing room for those 100+ days.

    Keep the temp under 55C, don't go above 1.85 volts.

    Ya, I remebered you talking about this before. I can hit 3.12@1.6v. Have you relaxed the memory timings and addjusted the ratio?

    I'd have to say thats rather impossible.


    115F yes, 115C, no!

    Brent, that temp does not sound right. I have a 2.4c @ 3.0 with stock voltage. I use a TT Sparkle for cooling and my full load temps never get above 50c. Ambient temp is around 32c to 38c. I would definitely try to figure out why that temp is so high.

    I decided to get a better HSF for it anyways, the CPU has to last a few years, and I want his PC to be fast, yet stable and last long.

    I also thought about the heat we'll have in the summer time, since I won't be around to keep an eye on the temps of the CPU I thought it better to just get a better HSF.

    Testing it right now to see the new temps......

    Your temp is a bit high...although yes Intels can run at much higher specs, I believe even Intel says fine up to 75 sustained.

    Anyways...your temp is a bit high. I'm running the same 2.6, stock Intel HSF, running 20% OC so same exact 3.12 as you. Not bumping voltage at all...default voltage. And believe it or not on this HSF I never got around to scraping off the thermal pad, and applying any grease. On the hot summer days around here she'd occasionally bump into the low 50's under full sustained load, usually high 40's.

    What is your room temperature?

    Intels stock HSF do a great job. To be honest with you, that stock thermal pad does also...just don't remove it, if you do, either replace with a brand new one, or with grease. Thermal pads are one shot deals.
