Q6600 Temp AF7
I was wondering. I am running this CPU at stock speeds. I have stock temps of 37,33,37,32 at idle and 52,49,52,47 at Ortho's full load. I am concerned I wont be able to OC this that much. Has anyone else with this config seen temps like this? I was using CPU-z Hardware program for the temps. Just trying to see what people with my type of config are seeing. Also I am using MX-2 paste since I swapped the AF7 from my old E6420 proc. I know this temp thing has been beaten to death. I just don't recall my E6420 being this high at stock. Also what is the comfortable temp you would recommend? Thanks for your help.
P.S. What is the 71c Thermal Specification that is posted on Intels Website. Does that refer to the Tjunction Temp?
