Default So I finally got my new computer...

So I set it up last night and am currently using stock cooling while waiting for my Ultra 120 eXtreme to arrive.

I find the stock heat adhesive to be annoying to remove from the CPU and figured I wouldn't need it much anyway, but I never expected temperatures to be so low.

This is with a Direct x 9 game running in the background and around 4 other windows open, 51% CPU usage. (Stock Cooling on the E6600, no adhesive, ambient temperatures are at around 26 degrees Celsius)

35/37 Degrees at half load in a heated room? Wow.

I may try to OC with current cooling.

Push it a little bit and see how quickly the temp rises. Stock cooling is efficient at dispersing heat at a certain rate but when the heat comes faster than the dispersion rate the numbers add up quickly.

I agree as i have the same chip and mine runs @38 cel.. BUT IT IS FING HOT MY A/C IS NOT WORKING. Stock cooling worked until I raised the chip to 2.8 then the temps went up like 10..

My e6600 at 3.0ghz idled at 27c during the winter and summer 32c. Even today at 3.4ghz still w/stock cooling highest idle temp w/a.c. on is 37c. Without the a/c it jumps to 43c idle.
