Q9550 + Hyper 212+ HSF = 76c full load... Too high?
 
It primes successfully for hours (Although it fails IntelBurn).

It's currently at 446*8.5 ~3.7Ghz. RealTemp and CoreTemp both say full load is at 76c... Is this too high?

76°C is quite good IMO.

However, this isn't a 9550S is it?

your getting pretty close to your delta but i think it's fine your tcase is here Intel® Core?2 Quad Processor Q9550 - SLAWQ oh are they so different. yup the s has a tcase of 76 which would give you more room :biggrin:
Intel® Core?2 Quad Processor Q9550S - SLGAE

I'd say that is pretty good for the kind of Overclock you have on the go.

Worst case scenerio if your not comfortable with it you can always upgrade your CPU Cooler to something a little more beefy, like the Thors Hammer with Push/Pull or ZeroTherm Nirvana.

My thoughts at least,

What kinda volts you got going into that? Which chipset?

temps are too high
i never went above 68c in prime with my q9650 @ 4.3 with coolmaster 212 + 2 fans
chek cpu base and heatsink base

Why because your chip ran cooler that makes no sense at all every chip is different plus all the variables like barometric pressure ambient temp ( i live in muskoka which is a swap pressure is higher so temps can be higher ):biggrin:

pretty good temps for such a cheap HSF :thumb:

I somewhat agree with what he said. Check to make sure that the HSF is secured properly and that you got enough TIM on it.

How long did it pass Prime for? What's the voltages? How's the airflow? All that contributes to your temperatures.

As I said on another forum where you asked this question, those temperatures are absolutely fine.

TCase is meaningless when dealing with software temperature readings. The important temperature to consider when looking at readings from the digital temperature sensors built into modern Intel CPUs is Tjmax, which is 100C for this CPU.
