    Q6600 @ 67C

    I'm wanting to overclock my B3 Q6600 at home. I made a thread about this previously, and to some people, my CPU seems to be running warm at stock. I have an arctic freezer 7 pro, and my idle temps run at about 47C, 62C or so at load. Granted, I put in new thermal paste over the weekend, so...

    CPU overheating problem

    sounds like the problem I had. What I did the 1st time around is buy some new thermal compound since the stock stuff didn't apply too well. Temps went down from there.

    I think my Q6600 is running slow..

    I have an older Chieftec Dragon case, so compared to today's cases, the airflow isn't all that good. The office in which the PC sits also happens to be the warmest room in the house come afternoon, as the sun directly hits the room through a single-paned window (ugh, i know). I have 5 case...

    I just installed the Arctic Freezer 7 Pro: Running Prime95. I'd say it's doing a lot better, wouldn't you guys say?

    About 26C(80F) right now. It probably gets to 22C in the evenings. But it's not summer here (in Texas), so it's likely to get warmer.

    UPDATE - I reapplied the heatsink with some new thermal compound. I set the multiplier back to 9x, and idle is now about 40c. Load is about 72c max. I like what I am seeing, but I'm still going to get a new heatsink this weekend when I get a chance to mess around. Thanks, guys

    Okay guys, it looks like the multiplier in BIOS was only set to 6x. I set it to 9x, and the temps were not running good at all. It's running 44c now in idle, but when I ran Prime95, the temps went above 80C. I was going to look in getting a new heatsink anyhows, hopefully I can run better...

    For some reason the core speed will never go above 1600 MHz. This is a shot I took when running Prime95. Could anyone tell me what gives? Running stock cooler. EDIT: mobo is Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
