What do YOU use to test "load temps" for the X6?

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Alright guys, I basically have gone mad thinking my CPU temps are too high for my setup. The only reason I think this is simply because so many people post there load temps for an OC 1090t and they are in the high 40's low 50's SOCKET temp...

System as follows:
Corsair 600T w/ 5 case fans
AMD 1090T @ 4.0GHZ 1.43v
Thermaltake FRIO CPU cooler w/ push-pull 120mm fans @ 1450rpm
Asus RoG Crosshair Formula IV @ 3000mhz cpu/nb 1.38v
Muskin Blackline DDR3 @ 1600mhz 7-9-7-24-1t 1.65v
Sapphire AMD 6870 GPU
Corsair AX850 PSU
WD Caviar Black SATAIII 1tb HDD
ASUS CD/DVD-RW Combo

Running prime95 blend test my temps are about 51 CORE and 63 SOCKET temp at the 30min mark
Running prime95 large FFT test my temps are about 55 CORE and 68 SOCKET at the 30min mark

Now my system is 100% stable, but I feel like those temps are too high. I have remounted the FRIO twice using MX-4 compound. Am I crazy or are these temps realistic?

Yeah, those temps are too high. I'm surprised it hasn't shut down already..

To prevent damage You either need a better cooler or a lower overclock to drop the temp's. You've got a decent overclock and your voltage looks good but this cooler isn't beefy enough to keep it cool.

See this is where I am perplexed, the FRIO is normally a really well rated cooler. I mean sure the NHD-14 is better, but normally the FRIO is in the upper tier of CPU temps

How are you appling the tim on your heat sink-and at 63c socket temp you are pretty hot-and down load core temp-besides showing your core temp, it also shows what each core is running at speed wise-you might have been throttleing and not even knowing it. By the way-i,m not saying run it at thoses high temps-but remember its at %100 full load-most people will never get a system like yours to run full load and max out there temps-so 63c stress testing is REALY pushing it, but probly never get close even gameing.

Applying about a grain sized bead of TIM in the middle of the CPU and letting the cooler spread it as it gets mounted. I am using core temp, all core temps are within 1*c and the temps are as I listed in my initial post. I spoke with an AMD engineer via email and he said that the 62*C "max temp" they have listed for the 1090t is for CORE temp and that this temp is also "very conservative." But still, they seem high. Amb temp is about 23*c BTW

Have you also tried stress testing at a lower vcor yet? I can get 4.0 with 1.4 vcore on mine-but every system is different.

Yes 62c is the amd max-and yes-i do beleive it can go abit higher with out hurting -but its there guide lines. i have pushed my Amd cpu,s -i have 4 different ones-way past there limits-never seen even throttleing until around 64-66c

Now as far as the tim gos-you might want to try tinting the heat sink and the cpu, than apply a very small rice sized dot in the middle-that seems to work best for me on all my systems.

But my systems stay pretty cool-and i also lap my cpu,s and heatsinks.

By the way-thats a lot of volts you have going to your cpu/nb, i would also try lowering that-mine is good on all 1.3 or less-but again, all systems are different.

Yes, I have tried a lower vcore. I am using the "load line calibration" on the crosshair IV which basically compensates (read-over) for vdroop. My cpu voltage in the bios is like 1.384 and it roughly that @ idle. When I load it goes to about 1.43 but can fluctuate as low as 1.41. My cpu is 100% stable with a 1.4v load voltage on the prime blend test but will reboot on the large FFT.

Get a 124 BSOD after about an hour of prime blend with any lower voltage. As far as I have been reading though my voltage for the cpu/nb is about typical to reach 3000mhz clock
