Sorry for starting a similar thread to my last one, however i needed further assistance with this topic, and the other thread was marked rsolved.
Just wondering about the temperature range for an Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4Ghz. I am using the stock cooler and have applied thermal paste, however temperatures for the CPU are averaging 55 degrees with normal tasks and temperatures may reach 70 degrees doing windows updates. Temperatures for the CPU reached 74 degrees when exporting a 2 hour video cut down from 20 hours.
I have changed the stock cooler with another with another one and have applied thermal paste again, but it the temps are still around the same.
Are these temperatures too high? That is what I am thinking. I was thinking of purchasing some arctic silver thermal paste, since i am guessing that my current thermal paste is no good (had it for 3 years) Any ideas?
Thanks so much in advance
PS: I am not overclocking
