Default Corsair H55 intel i7 960

i recently bought a basic water cooler corsair h55 and wanted to know if my overclocked temperatures were ok.

idle tempature is 35-40c

heat test in prime95 is 70-75c

overclock is 3.8ghz on i7 960

are these temperatures in the green or are the a bit on the to hot side

i think your temps are in the ballpark.,idle temps arent all too important but yours are normal,your load temps could be a tad better[as always] but still normal

First gen I 7's run hot even when OC moderately. Both your idle and load temps are pretty much spot on given your OC and Cooler.

Just for comparison I'm running a high OC of 4.5ghz with idle temps in the high 30's and at full load I'm getting 88-92c. Which is high, but I've never even come close to that under normal use and gaming. And if your running your memory anything above 1333mhz with that OC , it will also contribute to your temps.

It's really going to depend on your CPU, but just as a comparison to my system @4.5 I Idle around 40-42 with full loads in the low to mid 80''s My ambient is right around 68f and my temps will go up a degree or two in the summer time.

Idealy, you would want cool air brought into the case.

105c is the max for the CPU. It will throttle itself back or shut the system down once it reaches this temp. But Intel recommends no more than 74.9c.

74.9 is tcase max or something. Seams like nobody can ever give an explanation of intel spec sheets. Try to stay under 90 in prime or intel burntest, linx any of those crazy cpu crying stress tools. This will equate to topping out at low 70s maximum during gaming or anything else. My old 930 d0 maxed at about 91 at 4.2 and while gaming max recorded was 72 or so on 1 core. That was with tri sli 470s in the case with it. Doubt that cooler will keep anything more than 1.3-1.35v in check. If u have a decent chip shouldnt take more than 1.3v max for 4ghz.

Tcase is actually even lower at 67.9. I got the other (max core temp)figures off of Intels site. We all know they will go to 105 and start throttling about 100c though.
