I custom built a computer a few months ago. I have been doing some minor overclocking and from what I have read if the overclock is mentally stable you just need to monitor the temperature. I can see the temp of my CPU and GPU and was wondering if there are any other parts I should be watching the temperature of?

also so far my overclock has increased the full workload of my CPU from 40c to 50c is this getting to hot or am I still in green? I know the GPU is stable up to 90c and just not sure if the CPU is the same.

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W
Graphics Card = GTX 580 2-way SLI

Depending on what sensors you have some you can tell ambient temp. but...

Also the CPU should be good up to about 70 at min. to about 80-85 C max. anything above 95C should be of some concern. :thumbsup:

I would hate to disagree with you computer, but I am, with all due respect. The max temperature varies by CPU, and very, very few of them get as high as 70 C. Most are between 60-65 C MAX. I would say, if you can't keep any CPU below 55C at idle, during overclock then you don't have the proper cooling to overclock and you should stop overclocking immediatly until you can get a better cooling solution. at 80C some CPUs will literally FRY, but whats more likely then a fried CPU is a fried motherboard.

I might have been. :thumbsup: also I had looked at the outside temp to and being it is 90F here in NY that might have done it to. :flowers:

so the question is Mr hansen, what CPU do you have? 50C is good under load with virtually all modern CPUs, but its helpful to know what your max temp actually is. if you get us the model number we can look it up for you.

as far as the video card is concerned, it may be stable to 90C but I wouldnt run it over 60-65 C either. Video cards running that hot release a lot of excess heat into the system and can cause other components to overheat, so while the video maybe fine, you may fry something else.

well my processor is the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 model # 899133.

It comes out of the box at a speed 0f 2.83GHz and my goal is to try and get it to 3.0GHz. is that to high a goal or is that reasonable?

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W

I think 71C is max for the TC(core) temp and that processor.

Overclocking is really rocket science, so do your research, but be warned.

:thumbsup:

I have been running at least a 25% overclock foir 4 years. but keep my core temp below 50C at all times.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
