Hello, I run a Q6600 2.4 GHz on stock cooling and at stock speed. On idle I run about 44C which is pretty [bleep] hot for idle (surely it should be lower even with stock cooling)

The current voltage is 1.1 and it's stable, can I get it lower to reduce my temperatures? I want good performance and good temperatures, Im a gamer you see and make a lot of videos and encode and RIP things.

Please reply and assist me with this matter.

PS: I want stability, performance and better temperatures (possible?)

Regards

Is all the Intel Speed Step / Throttling on in the bios?? Because if it is, well on some boards it will change the voltage dynamically.

And well 41c is warm, It shouldn't be determental to the computer. My C2D system runs at 47c @ idle and 55-60 @ load. But I've also overclocked my system by 1.05ghz from stock. And my voltages are at 1.3 or 1.4 volts.

But IIRC you don't want to under volt a system just like you don't want to over volt it. You can always put on a new HSF for it, and it should lower temps. Another thing you can try if you want it lap the HS and CPU. There are some reports that have lowered the temps by as much as 10 c if not more. Just google Heat sink lapping tutorial to understand it.
