Re: Q6600 guys, what are your temps @ stock?
Your loads can't be that low. When all 4 cores are loaded up 100%, my temps easily go up 20C. And there's no way a Quad core on air idles below 30C. Use CoreTemp 0.95 or SpeedFan 4.32 to get the proper readings.
I'm on a Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme w/ Scythe "F" 120mm fan + Ceramique. SpeedFan 4.32 Idle 44-45C, Full load 67C.
My temps are the same as SilverFox's, 42c-45c idle and 65c-67c under FULL load.
When i'm just playing a game like Titan Quest, my temps never go over 52c.
I'm also using the Thermalright 120 extreme, 65cfm Fan.
To all the guys up there with the low temps, what revision did you guys get on your cpu's?
B3 or G0?
I've heard and read that the Monsoon Peltier cooler is actually a bit worse than the ultra 120 extreme, any truth to that?
