What is a safe temperature range for my E8400 core2duo

Hi, i have my core 2 E8400 wolfdale overclocked from 3.0 x2 to 3.6ghz x2, and it goes up around 70 celcius, i was wondering this if this is something i should be concerned about, or if it is normal for these chips to run this hot.. thanks

70 degrees is a tad high, I'd suggest buying an aftermarket heatsink or re-seating your current one.

Laptop cooling fan running at very high speed


Try loading and using a program called speedfan to control your fan speed if that is appropriate. This can also show you your CPU temperature (if you can figure it out). Core Temp can show you temperature of modern CPUs, amongst others.
Otherwise try cleaning you CPU of dust - search the internet as to how to this safely.

Have a 4wire motherboard for fan/heatsink on dell 530 inspiron


No need to buy a new fan, there are addapers to fix your problem.
Go to a good pc-store or order one from the net, the addapers are cheap to buy.

Good luck

the better the cooling you can add to the processor the cooler and better your cpu will be. the 140mm fan is a case fan, yes?
you will need to upgrade your cpu fan and heatsink.

CPUs on 45nm core are overall cooler than their predecessors on Core micro-architecture. However, the temperature different under 100% workload makes only 4-5 degrees. The thing is that Wolfdale processor core is smaller and features higher transistor density within a semiconductor die, which makes it a little harder for the heat flow to dissipate properly. That is why Wolfdale and Conroe heat up almost identically in idle mode. As for the relatively low temperature of AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+, with twice as high TDP as that of Core 2 Duo actually, it can be explained by the not very best location of the on-die thermal sensor that is situated quite far from the hottest spots of the processor’s semiconductor die.

Upgrading the cpu and heat sink and fan


Hi,
All the factory fitted CPUs are having such heat sinks as previously u were having.
Check on the backside there will be small plastic covers where screws fit these could be removed by screw driver but u can purchase that heat sink or can use previous heatsink as well if it is working.

Cpu cooling


The ZALMAN CNPS9700 is the best air cooler on the market.It looks cool and is quite easy to install. I have one in my box and I have 34 degrees with an Intel Quad core running 1 Gigahertz over stock.

Processor slowing down?


On the system properties you will able to check your processor speed and your memory, it is possible that the other description is referring to your memory or Ram.

You can use other program like aida32 to check your computer spec or you can try the steps below.

To check the CPU speed, from the Start menu, select Run... , then enter msinfo32 .

You can also type DXDIAG then enter.

Silent pc


Really depends on your price-range, and to what extent you are looking for "results", to simply make your PC a 'silent', a less expensive one, (ave.$80USD), should work, such as many "COOLMASTER" ones, I have one of these #201(?), and it has the 5"1/4" drivebay LCD panel, works quite well, keeps my Prescott (read "pres-HOT":) (3.0GHZ), down around 70o (versus ave. of about 120o, that ran for about $90 a year ago.

On the other hand, you could Never go wrong with a 'full-blown' "KOOLANCE" system/case. . such as "external water pump & container", although, these range in the 100'sUSD, many time $500+. .

Either way, Water Cooling, IMHO, is the best. .
Keep in mind that a lot of PC's 'noise' actually comes from the Hardrives, although, depending upon your case/setup, this may or may not bother you.

Also, a Good "Sound Dampening" case, or even just the "sound dampening "harddrive covers" work well.. try a Google search for MANY reviews, and product info; simply use;

"water cooling cpu", is a great start.

Let me know if there is anything else about these that you may be wondering, I have had mine running "practically" 95% of the time over an entire 2 years, only requiring a "refill" of coolant about* every 6 months or so. . Evaporation is slightly due to the extreme heat in the room in which my PC is located also tho.

You may also find many opinions on using TEC (Thermal Electric Cooling" devices, enabling you to actually Drop the CPU's to Sub-Zero temps.. but that is usually only preferred tby the 'extreme' Overclockers'. .at any rate.. Good Luck!

Destop Ambient Temperature Range


three things you need to remember. 1 your power supply has a fan and as long as it works and stays clean you should be ok for normal operating there. 2. you need to have as big a case fan as you can fit into the computer and use two if possible, 3.never leave it running when you are done this will definately burn up a power supply and over heat processors.

Overclocking


First off... be warned overclocking is not for the faint of heart... now let us begin...

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ADEQUATE COOLING!!!!

I can't stress this out enough if you plan on overcloking it's worth spending some money on some fan's specifically a CPU fan to make sure it stays cool. A side effect of overclocking is increased heat.

Restart the computer and go into your BIOS. Look for the setting to change the bus speed. Depending on your specific CPU it should be 200 MHz (if it's not don't worry, most computers now are 200 MHz). There should also be an option called the multiplier. This one is usually unavailable. If it is available you have a high-end CPU model that is "unlocked".

THEORY:

The system bus is multiplied by the multiplier and gives you the resulting speed.

200 x 16 = 3200 => 3.2 GHz

IF your multiplier is unlocked you can increase it... it's not then we have to use the system bus.

When you change the system bus it increases the speed of everything in your system... that is the link in between  individual components. But it's a double edge sword... it will cause you system to become unstable more quickly and reduce the maximum overclocking potential.

PRACTICE:

Increase the bus speed 3~5 MHz at a time. Restart the computer boot into the Operating System and run applications you normally would. If nothing crashes, hangs, freezes, locks up... you can reboot the computer and increase the bus speed again. Repeat theses steps until:

a) reach a point where the system becomes unstable
b) you feel like pushing your system more is getting to risky


This is a very basic answer on how to overclock. For more information, guides and other goodies http://www.extremeoverclocking.com/ is a good website for more information and guides.

WARNING: If you push the system to far to fast without doing it gradually you can surpass the computer components limits and cause damage to the computer parts. I am not responsible for any damage that occurs. This is just a guide.
