No it won't. 60's is still a safe Tjunction temperature for a Core 2. I ran my 6850 at 72 for the longest time and wasn't concerned in the least.You CPU will probably lock up when it starts reading in the high 60's in CoreTemp
So err...know of a program which can keep track of both?No it won't. 60's is still a safe Tjunction temperature for a Core 2. I ran my 6850 at 72 for the longest time and wasn't concerned in the least.
Again, Tjunction threshold for Core 2s is 95C....and even then it will just throttle.
There are 2 thermal diodes in the Core 2. The one everyone everyone is used to seeing and the one you don't want above 70 is Tcase. This is the temperature just outside the cpu die, but inside the heatplate. This ISN'T what CoreTemp Measures.
CoreTemp measures Tjunction. This is the actual temperature of the inside of the core and is good up to 90-95 before it will throttle.
Coretemp and Speedfan are two of a number that measure both. Or at least last i remmeber coretemp did both, i know speedfan does both though.So err...know of a program which can keep track of both?
I was reading somewhere sometime in late 2007 or early 2008 (before they discontinued the conroe) intel tweaked their manufacturing process increasing the number of useable processors per batch, but the side effect is they have decreased overclockablility.Possibly. I know my quad isn't the famed G0 stepping, so that could be the reason. I'll be doing some more overclocking tweaking during the holidays. I've got a brand spanking new case. My watercooling stuff has been sitting idle for a year now and I think it's high time I actually use them :lol:
