Computer specs Confirmed Running BetaFollow

****. I have a buddy of mine who can overclock my processor easily (it was at 2.2GHz before) but I was wondering what processor temps I should look out for. Like, is 60 degrees Celsius bad at idle? Etc. (Right now it's running at 42 degrees celcius on idle, about 58-60 when benched to max)

Some people take their CPU's to crazy temps, but imo I wouldn't want it to go over 70 full load.

Yea 70 imo is MAX a CPU should run, anymore and your risking a short life span (for your CPU of coarse ;) ). if your hitting 60 full load, you should be good.

FFXIV is mainly using only two cores (two main process threads), so a faster dual core will outperform a slower quad core.

Common misperception: All CPUs are the same.

Depending on manufacturer and application CPU temps can vary wildly. For example, the core i7:

From above source:

Quote:
What we’ve found is that the Intel Core i7 CPUs throttle down their speed starting at 100C.


They go on to suggest going no higher than 80c max to give them some slack.

On the other hand, AMD processors run much cooler. The 1090t Thuban 3.2 has a max operating temperature of 62c [I don't have my source handy for this, but I triple checked it when I worked on my overclock--I'm running one ;) ]

As far as what temps you should be looking for [obviously cooler is better] you need to factor in CPU cooler [stock vs aftermarket vs water, etc] Computer case airflow [blow the dust out of your machine with compressed air, work on some good cable management] Ambient air temps, etc.


[edited because, until my new keyboard gets here, I'm stuck with what I have. . and it barely works >< ]
