Just double checking, I want to be sure that this is good news here:
I reseated my fan almost a week ago, because it wasnt seated properly this time. I installed folding software yesterday, and have since been running my cpu at 100% solid, mainly as a stress test. I will be turning down the % a little bit later.
CoreTemp is giving me a readout, UNDER FULL LOAD, of 34degrees on one core and 35 on the other.
Real Temp is giving me 31 degrees and 32 degrees.
Is this for real? Seems awesome-fantasticly low to me!
Im running a stock xeon e3110 with a freezer 7 pro, in an antec 900.
If these temps are alright, how far do you think i could get a reasonable overclock on the cpu (I have patriot ddr3 1333mhz ram and an asus p5q3 deluxe wifi mobo)? Purely speculation, I understand, but these numbers are unnatural, to me at least...
Version 0.99.3 has the correct TJmax values for 45nm chips which were published and then disappeared on Intel's site in August. Regardless, your temps are good. I had similar temp readings with my E8400 and a cheap OCZ hsf at stock.
Yeah, those temps look a little more normal. The sensors in the 45nm chips are notoriously inaccurate, the further away from TjMax you get. If you want, going through the calibration hoops that Realtemp offers might give you more 'correct' temperatures, but I'd consider it a moot point. You've definitely got some headroom to work with, if you want to overclock that chip.
