Default Getting some good temps atm with my 4.21Ghz e8500 :)

I made a thread a little while ago, but anyways. I decided to start up Orthos to check for some stability, I haven't run it long though. The rig is entirely games stable from what I can tell though.

Main components of my rig consist of the following:

-Asus P5Q-Pro
-E8500 @ 4.21 Ghz
-OCZ Reapers 4Gb 1066Mhz @ 1108Mhz
-Seagate 7200.11 320Gb
-Thermaltake big typhoon
-Thermaltake Armor Mx case
-Corsair 620W Modular psu
-Gainward HD 4850 gpu

Not sure exactly what the ambient temp is at the moment, but it is comfortable...cool than usual however. Orthos has been running for 48 mins so far, max temp for both cores is 49 degrees. Usually id get temps between 50-58.

Vcore voltage in the bios is set to 1.275.
CpuZ and Speedfan records it as 1.256 and 1.26 respectively.

But anyway, just thought I'd share
Any questions, feel free to ask.

Edit:
Bus speed- 443Mhz
Rated bus speed- 1772Mhz
Multiplier: 9.5x
FSB : DRAM- 4:5

anything below 60c is perfectly acceptable for a max temp

(use coretemp though, the other temp monitors measure from the circuit on the mainboard, and its 8-12c lower than the real core temp)

my max so far is 55c, (and i've seen it work just fine at 70c)

i dont like to run it at 70c, im just saying- it will=)

nice overclock though=)

i like the big typhoon, but i dont like ripping apart the mounting brackets, so i went with an arctic 64 freezer instead

it seems to be doing fine for me, i probably wouldnt notice a big difference in this one and the BT

Yeah, i had a fair few complications when installing the big typhoon. I'm dreading the day I have to take it off again

sounds like you have a nice chip if it is indeed stable w/ said vcore/speed
