Can anyone share the temp at which are the core are, when rendering a heavy scene file at high resolution.

The heat in the cores recently is shooting up to 70, 65, 65, 68

The Gpu temp is around 61C and Cpu 77 C (to what ever I remember)

What cpu do you have? This is important.

Intel Quad core e6600 4Gb of ram

I forgot to mention the above temps are while rendering at a high resolution, a heavy file.

Otherwise the cores are 32, 36, 34, 38

Thermal cooler unit for the cooling.

I think normal load temps for your CPU should be about 50 - 60. I would clean and re seat the fan and heat sink and see if it improves.

I assume that's q6600 inxa, as e6600 is dual core.
Get the CPU box and look for the PROD CODE on the sticker, the last 5 characters.

SLACR is the revision that runs cooler and quieter (Ocs better apparently but don't know about that)
SL9UM is what I've got, the first one of the series that got out, a bit hotter
There could be more revisions, not sure.
Anyway, your temperatures almost exactly reflect mine (both idle and rendering), so I guess that's normal (my CPU is around 2 years old). If your's is SLACR, it's probably too hot

A bit to read on the revisions: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/241228-new-q6600-stepping-sl9um.html

It's a Quad.

Gpu - 62C
System - 42C
Cpu - 76C

Full load.


Horizon - yep mine is around 2 years old as well. Thanks man. So that's good :)
