Overclocking Q9450 10'c Temperature difference

Hey

I finally taken off the stock cooler and replaced it with my thermalrite 120 Extreme Heatsink so that i can start overclocking.

Anyways i been using Everest Ultimate Edition for temps, and done abit of reading and heard of a software called Real Temp 2.70 so i downloaded it to see if temps match and they dont their is more or less a 10'c from real temp to Everest here is a pic



Let me know what you think? Thanks for any help

BTW q9450 overclocks kinda nice and easy i have already got it on 3.4

Yea thats what ive heard, my current ambient temps are aprox 22'c

with temps showing

Real Temp - 35, 34, 35, 37

Everest - 44, 47, 44 ,44

Note that i have been playing CSS for the last hour or so therefore it is a little warmer i guess

What you think mate?

EDIT: By the way these temps are now on a 3.6Ghz OC and not really much of a temperature difference hehe

I've checked with 5 programs running and all have been pretty close to each other except RealTemp coming in around 10 degs lower at idle and about 7 - 9 degs lower and load.

My mate checked with a 45nm quad and found roughtly the same thing.

Dunno what the deal with RealTemp is.

Given a few minutes a cooler will get a gpu / cpu down to idle temps so gaming prior to the test shouldnt make a difference.

OC with minimal Vcore increase should keep the temps low. 3.6 on air is nice, i hit that with my E6600. Any higher and i would say its time to add the water

Sensing apps will never give perfect figures so using them as a guide is best.

Yea thats what i been doing im using everest atm as it is showing the temps the highest, and then using he lower ones as an average i dont want to go past 60'c does that sound about the limit for a Q9450?

Apparently your good until 70. So if it peaks to 70 during 24 hours of stress testing then I would probably stop there.

Stress it to get max temps.

The problem is you will never get the same CPU saturation during most uses so you should never see stress temps in real apps.
