Hey there guys, First post so hello to you all
Right I'm a bit confused as to what tempreture my Q6600 should be when under 100% load.
I ran Orthos stress test and core 0 and 1 were running at 83 and 81 degrees which i think is very high as max before auto shutdown is 100. Core 2 and 3 were at 60 degrees.
My Q6600 is not overclocked and is still running at 2.4GHZ/core, Im using a Xigmatek Red Scorpion 120mm heatsink and fan, with 4GB (2x2GB) Ballistics Ram, Gigabyte Ep31 mobo, a radeon 4850 and a 480W PSU.
When i built the PC i made sure to use a rice sized drop of thermal paste spead evenly over the CPU with the heatsink mounted in one go. Air flow is good in the case, theres an extractor fan on par with the fins of the heatsink on the back of my case.
Why is it so high?!
Any help much apprieciated
