I have no idea how to overclock so I used east tuner 6 to overclock instead.

Using Q9450 and 2x2GB 800mhz

real temp 2.7 shows 5 degree lower then CPUID HWMonitor for every core
Full Load @ 3.4ghz:


Idle @ 3.4ghz:


Here how my setup looks like. ALL my fans are going at very low speeds. Not more then 1000rpm each



At these temps, are they safe for 24/7 operating?
Any advice would be deeply appreciated

Please read the Sticky at the top of this Forum:

Core i7 and Core 2 Temperature Guide - http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/221745-29-core-core-temperature-guide


From the Guide:

Section 6: Scale ...

Scale 3: Quad
Q9x50: Tcase Max 71c, Stepping E0, TDP 95W, Idle 16W
Q9x50: Tcase Max 71c, Stepping C1, TDP 95W, Idle 16W<--Q9450
Q9400: Tcase Max 71c, Stepping R0, TDP 95W, Idle 16W
Q9300: Tcase Max 71c, Stepping M1, TDP 95W, Idle 16W
Q8x00: Tcase Max 71c, Stepping R0, TDP 95W, Idle 16W
Q8200: Tcase Max 71c, Stepping M1, TDP 95W, Idle 16W
Q6x00: Tcase Max 71c, Stepping G0, TDP 95W, Idle 16W

-Tcase/Tjunction-
--70--/--75--75--75--75-- Hot
--65--/--70--70--70--70-- Warm
--60--/--65--65--65--65-- Safe
--25--/--30--30--30--30-- Cool ...


Tcase = CPU temperature
Tjunction = Core Temperature


Real Temp 2.7, which uses Tjunction Max 95c, has been superceeded by Real Temp 3.0, which instead uses Intel's recommended Tjunction Max 100c - http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp

Your temperatures are well within Intel's Thermal Specifications.
