Hey All,

 

OK I replaced a 35 watt Celeron processor with a 65 watt Core 2 Duo E6300 1.8 GHz processor both LGA 775.

Processor temps never exceed 75 degrees Celsius and max Core 2 Duo temp is 61.4 degrees Celsius.

 

All aluminum factory heat sink was reused and at physical touching by hand heat sink is barely warm to touch at base of heat sink.

 

I found an OEM Dell heat sink that has a copper base plate with tubes through steel or aluminum cooling fins.

My question will I gain any improvement by replacing the all aluminum heat sink with the copper base heat sink.

 

Computer is working great without any random stalling or shutdowns.

 

What would you do.

Thanks

It is a large typical Dell OEM aluminum heat sink so I'm kinda thinking the same thing.

 

Thanks

Judging from pictures only it's hard to say which one is better. But as current works, I would just use it.

Agree.

 

Been scraping old desktops and and discovered all the cool parts etc so the gray cells in the brain started moving around and here I am wondering. :scratchhead:

What I have Learned.

 

It seems the temps I was seeing was the Core Temps and those will always be somewhat higher than the Case Temps given by the manufacturer.

 

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0:       +67.0°C  (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1:       +61.0°C  (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
 

Well within temp ranges so no worries.

 

Thanks for the replies which got my "Little Grey Cells" active.

 

Lot of good info about Copper vs Aluminum Heat Sinks as far as Heat Conduction and Heat Dissipation.

 

I refreshed quite a bit of what I have long forgotten in the years.
