raising the memory voltage wont cause anything to overheat - if something was overheating, its due to something else.

Please use realtemp and say what your idle and load temperatures are for your CPU.

edit: posts where made while i typed this one.


Intels cooler would be enough, but if they messed up the application of grease (Intel coolers are meant to be installed only once, or you have to replace it) it would explain the problems.

Thermaltake to not make the best CPU coolers, i would avoid them. The current favourites for Q6600 cooling are

* Arctic cooling Freezer 7 pro
*Xigmatek (any model, they are all excellent coolers at great prices)
*Thermalright (anything 92mm or 120mm)
* Scythe ninja/Mini ninja - great coolers, but not cheap

(these are the ones i reccomend as an owner of two Q6600's, i have seen many otherwise good coolers, that only gave good temps on two of a Q6600's four cores - not all coolers work well on intels quad core CPU's)

Another edit: i saw that you mention a mini case. That could also be a reason behind the heating. Please look at the Scythe mini ninja or Zalman coolers - they arent the most cost effective, but they both have models that are small enough to fit in small cases.

I wouldn't be worried about case size too much, and you can get any aftermarket cooler you want imo, just get some good thermal grease (as5 or mx2) and apply it properly. The stock heatsink is not great for cooling, but there is no way you should be getting temps like that. I really would try to fix that immidiately. Here are instructions for applying the thermal grease. You can use isopropyl alcohol w/ a q-tip to remove the old thermal grease (make sure you remove all of it). And again, make sure all the pins are firmly in, I imagine that is why its messed up now, they are difficult sometimes. If you lift and it gives way somewhere, its a problem. When its snug, you'll know.:)

Well the cpu temp is not as important as the core temps, which tend to be higher than the cpu temp. That program realtemp I gave you a link to will give you your core temps, and thats really what we need. I'm guessing if your cpu temp is getting up to 70, your cores are probably getting up to 90 or so, and your cores you don't want higher than 70, and if they get above 80 they start slowing down to prevent damage.

using realtemp you want the temps to be below 70c at load.

Thats solid core temps there. As long as your cores stay under 70, you should be fine. Ideally, w/o any oc, you'll want them to stay under 60C. So yeah, those temps look good. Have you tried playing games? Does it still lag?

Memtest86. Oh wait, why don't you wanna use memtest? Aw that sucks about the fan. The artic cooler 7 might be smaller. As I said though, the stock heatsink should be ok if your not ocing. You just have to replace the thermal paste and make sure it is firmly attached.

That seems relatively ok, core 1 seems to perhaps not be getting enough thermal paste contact. Did you just replace it? And what thermal grease did you use? It needs to settle a bit before your temps drop too much.

zalmans thermal grease isnt that great, you should get arctic silver 5, A S ceramique, or arctic cooling's MX2 paste (despite the similar names, the last one is a different brand)
