    I was just wondering what temps you guys are getting with your setups. Iam running a Apogee Waterblock with the Swiftech Apex Ultra & fluid XP+. Now iam at 1.4875V on the core @ 3.7 and my full load temps are 55-59 in Prime 95 now i was wondering if this is too high and what can i do to decrese these temps. Also iam running large FFTs. I do remember when i was installing the waterblock i put quite a bit of arctic silver 5 on the chip now i read after doing so that you dont need that much at all. How much diffrence would i see switching from FluidXP+ to a mix of distilled water and an additive+ Reapplying the thermal paste. Thanks

    Try lapping the water block a bit to be certain it's flat. A mirror and a sheet of 1200 grit does nicely.

    Are those load temps. being read from the digital sensors on the CPU? If so, then I'd say you're doing great and I wouldn't worry at all. Temps. below 60C or even 65C at load really aren't a problem for these processors. According to Intel they don't even begin to consider a C2D as having overheating issues until it starts climbing over the 70C mark. At least that's what they told me anyways.

    I think your doing excellent with that clock speed and those load temps. Of course you can always go cooler by taking the time to lap the processor and stuff like that, but is it really worth it or necessary?

    i agree, 60-65 load is ok,but thats where 'I'd draw the line

    amazing guys i just re applied AS5 in a bb size and tightened the screws around my waterblock and what do ya know 52-55 degreze celcius iam so happy and iam gonna keep pushing my goal from the start was 4.0 but iam still not there yet lolz. I made it to 3.7 so weel see how much farther i can get:cheers: :cheers:

    3.8 Stable!!!!!! 900MHZ on the ram to 4-4-4-12 yeaaaaaa gettin closer temps are ok 57-62

    i was wondering what do use to read the temps ????

    riva tuner says something and nvmonitor says something else. which one should i belive ???!!!

    i use coretemp and thermal analysis tool (TAT) they are the most accurate you could use speedfan aswell i dont know how accurate tho

    i used intel thermal analysis tool and it showed the same temps as rivatuner so i guess that's the correct temps. but nvmonitor is 30-33 idle which is realistic somehow. but rivatuner and tat is very low, it's like i'm using watercooling which i'm not. i'm using zalman cnps9700 LED, stacker 830 case, 1x 120 intake, 1x120 exhaust.

    No offence at all but your water cooling kit is not exactly doing a good job of cooling...Im gettin the identical temps once i changed to the zerotherm cf900(air cooling)....And dun worry on stock iv got temps at 66C under full load...

    hey guys i was just wondering on my 680i does the Cpu FSB voltage, nForceMCP,nForceSSP effect my ocing???? i put my Core volt to 1.55 and it ran prime for a bit passed a series of 14 then locked up...... what could i do to get it stable????

    finally got it to 8.825 Completly Stable @ 1.575 But my load temps are too high(62-67). My final 06 score was 11,212 Which was pretty good, Im putting it down to 3.6 @ 1.4875 for everyday use @ 57 Degreze load.

    Still not too sure as to which is the correct sourse of reading the CPU core temperature.
    Riva tuner and nView monitor and Probe II ( on my Asus Striker) gives diferent results from CoreTemp ver. 0.94 .
    CoreTemp 0.95 reading in ususually 10-15 C higher. ( not talking about the 85C junction temp on CoreTemp, but the 2 individual core temp)

    When mentioned that 60 -65 Temp is the upper limit of acceptable, what reading people are talking about?

    I am getting like 50C normal and 65+load on my Core 2 Duo on stock cooling. I have a decent case what should I do? I had to put the heatsink on twice when I first put it on due to problems with it fitting and I didnt re-apply thermal paste. Is that the problem?

    Yeah, you should always apply new thermal paste when you replace the heatsink. Then again, we don't know your room temperature and even the overclock will add around 5C to its temp.

    wtf 3.6 @ nearly 1.5 v !!! man im sure you can get it at 1.4v rock stable helping your temps to be lower too.
    Right now i have lowered mine to 3.2ghz @ 1.21v rock stable only 35c idle because even though i have a zalman 9700 at 3.6ghz on 1.4v idle temps are round 46c thats too high for me.
