Nautilus 500 with Intel Extreme Quad Core

 

Hi guys,

I just got Nautilus 500 installed on Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 2.66GHz / 8MB Cache / 1066MHz FSB / Kentsfield / Quad-Core, my idle temperature is:

Core#0 – 43 C

Core#1 – 37 C

Core#2 – 43 C

Core#3 – 40 C

I would like to know how other people are doing. Could you please post your data here? Also if someone thinks I’m running too hot please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Best regards

Robert

Hi guys,

Well I don’t see any responses, so I thought I will give you a short update, after few days thermal paste settled down and now my temperatures are even better: 40, 39, 36 and 37. It is roughly 15 to 17 degrees difference between Nautilus and my previous Air cooled solution (Zalman 9500). So far so good.

Hi Robert,

 

At a roomtemperature of 20 deg celcius my corsair keeps the temperature after an idle time of 30 mins (speedstep kicks so QUAD @1600 Mhz) 31, 33, 30, 30. With intel TAT (full load 2 cores QUAD @2667) the temps reach 45, 47, 40, 39.

 

Using AS5 btw.

 

Hope this helped!

 

PS: Are you experiencing any pump noise Robert or do you just hear the fan blowing?

Hi Kingmar,

My pump works very quiet. I can hear fan only. QX6700 takes 130 W to run, so this generates a lot of heat. I think Intel should recommend out of box liquid cooling solution for their QX6700 CPU because honestly I don’t think that you can keep temperatures on the cores in safe range using air cooling solution only unless you have turbo jet fans from Boeing 737…:biggrin:

Ps. Thanks for reply.

Best regards

Robert
