hi i have a Intel e6550 on an msi g33m mobo. I am using an antec sonata III case with medium setting speed for the 120mm fan. I have been having cpu temp problems which finally prompted me to change my cpu fan. i bought a zalman 8700 which helped cool it down a few degrees. however i am still getting ridiculous temps.
on idle at no overclock 40'c, on full load 63'c
on idle overclocked to 2.8Ghz same volts 43'c, on full load 68'c
here is a hardware monitor results on overclcoked 2.8ghz default volts:
i remember at the begining the cpu used to run cooler on stock. after i overclocked it for first time it sort of never went back to normal temps. i have restored bios settings to fail safe defaults, but no good.
