I recently bought this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835128009
cpu cooler for my core 2 duo e6300. Full computer specs are at the end.
Basically I am seeing very, very high temperatures with only a small amount of overclocking. I have read reviews on this cpu cooler and they say that is very effective. It idles at around 45 C, full load 52 C, and it has hit 55 C before!
I am wondering if these are ok numbers to have. I am a bit of a novice overclocker but I know what I'm doing when it comes to building PCs. Any help regarding this issue will be greatly appreciated. I have this post bookmarked and I will check back later tonight.
Overclocked: Base=1.86GHz with a x7 multiplier. I have it at 2.15GHz still at x7 I believe but cpuz says its 6. FSB = 1231.2 MHz. Bus speed=307.8 MHz
Full system specs: Asus P5B mobo, c2d e6300, 2 1 GB 667MHz Corsair sticks, and 2 512 MB Kingston 667MHz sticks (3 GB total), Asus x1950 Pro video, a quality brand 430W power supply, and the cpu cooler mentioned above (see link).
Also, I noticed my video card sometimes breaks 62 C :amazed:... this can't be good can it?
