cpu temperature

  yellows 01:08 14 Apr 2007

i have a core duo 6600 cpu and when idle its 50c and when playing games goes to 53c does this sound very hgh?

doesnt sound too bad, i bought an amd 5200 x2 and this lowered my idle temps from late 40's to low teens and my peak from late 60's to under 40c
now clocked at 3 gz idles at 19c under load 44c and its silent and adjustable, i love it!
this is intel version by the way

50c is about normal for a CPU and your system temperature should be about 30c.

I agree with the others - 'tis about normal, nothing to worry about.

I also have a E6600 and at idle under a low load the temp shows between 19oC and about 24oC depending on the ambient temperature. Under sustained load it hit's no more than 32oC. This is with the standard heatsink and fan.

Bear in mind the top operating temperature for this CPU is 60.1oC.

Mine's in quite a large case with excellent airflow.

I have the E6300 and Vista with 2Gig of ram,when idle the temp is around the same as Spartacus,i would say its a little high for the E6600 and would be concerned a little if it only goes up 3c when playing games.
Im wondering if the reading is correct.

Have you checked in the bios,also running Everesthome to double check. click here

My AMD Athlon XP 3200+ normally stabilises at around 59 to 60 degrees C (slightly higher in summer) - its maximum temperature rating is 85 degrees C, although the cut-off point in the Bios is set at 70 degrees C.

The large Gigabyte cooling fan is normally on its minimum setting.

i agree with skidzy a rise of 3 degrees is strange to say the least, bot the cpus i have used rise 15/20 degrees from idle to gaming
