    hi all

    can anyone tell me what temperature the conroe e6300 runs at Idle/load stock speed and what temp it is overclocked? :confused:

    pls tell me what HSF your using too, thanks

    im trying to build a budget conroe rig for my friend and wondering if i can get away with using this cheap HSF on an overclocked conroe? Arctic Cooling Alpine 7 http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Arctic_Cooling_CPU_Coolers.html

    i am currently using a big typhoon cpu cooler, i have overclocked my conroe to 2.8ghz and idle temps are around 42degrees, this is with my 120mm fan on quiet setting (i have a aska sonata2 case)

    I am awaiting on a 120mm fan to put at the front of the case to suck in air, hopefully to help achieve lower temps, if i put the rear fan on performance the cpu temp drops to about 35 degrees :)

    this is using Core Temp to record the temperatures :)

    Idle temps are really important tbh,Its the load temps that matter.
    What temps are you getting on full load dual prime?

    I would not skimp on the cooling if he wishes to overclock.

    Spending and extra tenner is well worth it

    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler is a great cooler the one you mentioned no better than the stock intel cooler I wouldn't of thought.

    2gb geil 5300 : £105
    seagte 250gb 16mb :£53
    e6300 : £115
    freezer 7 hsf : £15
    atec case 400w : 55

    depending on your setup (especially having a case that can accomodate large heatsinks), the scythe ninja plus is a good bet and a more efficient heatsink than the freezer - but more expensive than it. The ninja is quiet even with included fan, and with a case like the Antec p180, it might even be possible to run it without the fan as the case fans are right next to it on 2 sides - see here:

    Silent pc review of ninja showing picture of ninja running passively in a p180

    NB make sure you read the paragraph under the picture - it explains how this setup got a 3.8ghz prescott (ie a very hot running chip) under load, cooled passively to a max of 60c, with the 2 case fans running at minimum (ie practically silent).

    I say might because i am still waiting for my e6600 and i will be initially running it with the fan on the ninja. I may try without the fan if the temps with fan are not too high.

    I have to say though, my current setup with a celey 2.53 (in place of the awaited core 2 duo e6600) in an asus p5w dh deluxe, 2gb ddr2-800, with a p180 case with an ati x1800xt with an artic cooling accelero cooler fitted amd an x-fi soundcard, with all case fans running on the lowest setting and the ninja fan fitted, is very, very quiet even under load and has not shown any sign of locking up. :cool:

    NB:Ninja plus=ninja and a quiet 12cm fan.

    Might stretch your budget too much though, esp if you consider a p180 case and have to buy a seperate PSU :(

    Get some good thermal interface material eg arctic silver 5 too - will help you get a couple of degrees lower with whatever sink you choose.

    my e6700 runs 26-28C idle at stock 33C fully loaded at stock.
    When over clocked to 3.2GHz it still runs at about 28C idle and 36C fully loaded.

    Using Zalman 9500AT, it is still cool but further overclocking isnt going so well

    E6300 @ 3.3 with 1.4v using an AC Freezer 7 Pro, 38-40 Idle then 48-50 on load... This is with fan at 2000rpm. All in a Antec p180 case with case fans on medium!

    This seem abit high? We all using coretemp for the readings? As the gigabyte utility says 28 idle 37 load... :rolleyes:

    Also are people getting identical readings from both cores? core 2 on mine always seems to be 2-3 degrees higher... Maybe heatsink not sitting correctly?

    e6600 idle about 29-30 after overnight dual prime 95 so im assuming that is the case temp.

    100 % load dual prime 95 we are looking at 46-48C

    Thats on Air using a 9500 Zalman

    All stock running at the moment.
