I would LOVE to get that cold beer from you when I see you! I have a core 2 extreme that runs at 74C normally! It is an Intel dual core that has HT on each core so thinks it is a quad.


It's not a core2 if it's got HT - isn't it a Pentium D? In which case they do get hot!


Yes you are correct it is a P4D 3.2ghz dual core with HT on each core. I had the Zalman on it last time it was running and it made it stay around 74C on each of the 4 cores. It was a VERY fast machine, it was faster than some of my AMD true quad core machines, I NEED to put it back on line!!

Here is a link to one like mine http://computers.pricegrabber.com/processors-unboxed-oem/Intel-P4-HT-Technology-32GHz/m939457.html

I am not sure how hot is too hot but this system is 66C with a Zalman. No overclock on this Q6600. We keep it in the same room with the TV so I keep the fans turned down to keep it quiet. Even with triple filtered air in the house we have to vacuum the dust twice a year.

My overclocked Q6600 is using the same cooler with the fan @ full speed and a total of 4 system fans. That CPU is a G3 stepping and runs about 61C.

I don't mind all the heat in the winter but it kills me in the summer. Too much A/C.
Thx!

Paul

Opened my PC and discovered a dustbomb. Filthy boy :(


I bet you've seen an improvement since cleaning it out, right? :-)

Them nasty dust bunnies just love it inside our systems. What's up with that? I guess the warm temperatures of our systems provide a nice warm snugly place for them to rest & multiply. ha-ha ;-)

The simplest way if you are not using the computer for other high CPU tasks is to reduce the CPU speed until the temp gets below your target. Use the power options/advanced and set the MAX CPU speed less than 100% and the Min cpu speed at 50%. On a stock PC this can be 75-95% on the MAX speed.

Check the timestamp. This thread is just about 10 years old.
