new system build as in sig bellow, i need some thoughts and need some questions answerd if posable, havent been on here for a year or two, my teps are weird and comming from amd to intel i didnt know what to expect, temps at idel are only 23c
my old amd system used to idel @ around 43 and at load around 68, now i have gone to intel @ idel my temps are core 0, 23c core 1, 19c, and at laod neither go over 34, is this right for intel? i really dont know they seam way to low to me, anyone else have this mobo with an I3 550 ? how about overclocking, if my true temps are right im thinking this would be a good o/c,er many thanks
Those temps doesn't mean anything when it comes to overclocking. When you overclock,
you're gonna need a very good HSF or a watercooling loop to ensure stable temps, and
of course perfect push/pull for airflow via the case unit,
Just because you have good idle temps, is nothing in real money when it comes to OC'ing.
thanks for your reply, i do use CoreTemp: i just tryed that other program but i also use everest pro and they all say the same temps, 23, 19 @ idel if i run a game like black ops for and hour or stress the cpu my teps only reach a max of around 34c, is intel i3's suposed to run this cool, i know the cooler im useing is a good one and built for o/c i gues i would like to know what safe temps i could go up to with a o/c what is saff for i3 550, must say this cooler is masive
thanks for the reply, i looked at the temps in bios and while in there the temps are only 20c on core o and 17 on core 1, i did the bios update a few weeks ago when i built this system, i gues the temps are low in there as no windows loaded while in bios, i was going to go with the h50 water cooler but reading some reviews made my mind up for the cooler im useing it is built for overclocking for the i7 but i seen it and just had to have it as it fitted my socket and looked mental
If the core temps are running BELOW AMBIENT, then something is wrong/uncalibrated with either your sensors or the program.
For example, if your room ambient is 23C, and your core temp is 19C, that's a physical impossibility unless you're using a chilling type of cooling system. Simply radiating air heat-sink or water-cooling heatsink heat into ambient air will not produce any cooling below air ambient.
my AMBIENT or room temp is around 15, to 18c so i took that into account thanks for that point m8, i have a little problem im looking into about this bios, the IGP is still takeing up some ram, ie installed memory 4.00 GB (3.87 GB usable acording to my stsyem info, if i go into bios advanced bios features with no pci-e gfx installed there are 13 options i can change and 1 greyed out in there, if i install my ati 6850 then go into the advanced bios features 4 items are missing from the list 10 only now. thanks for any help with this
