What the...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
A couple of months ago I had the following;

Multiplier: 31
Base clock: 133
Vcore: 1.275
QPI: 1.2
temp: mid 60's
Memory: stock

...and I was stable in Prime95 for 12 hours, and I could game all I want with no problems.

So I thought, lets take bclk to 160 to help overclock memory. I ran 12 hours of Prime95 error free with;

Multiplier: 12
Base clock: 160
Vcore: Auto
QPI: 1.2
temp: mid 60's
Memory: stock

So I changed it to the following;

Multiplier: 25
Base clock: 160
Vcore: 1.275
QPI: 1.2
temp: up to 99
Memory: stock

13 minutes in I had to stop Prime95 'cos one of the cores was @ 99C. What the hell is up with the 30C+ difference in temperature? The temperature outside cannot be higher than 10C from winter to spring.

99C?!?

Are you sure the pump on your cooler is still working?

(Bump)

Just tried it again with the same settings and again, 99C after 13 minutes. Can nobody help me then?

perhaps its a bug? Do you have any other way of monitoring temps?

Do you experience throttling at those temps?

Its not a bug. If I leave it to hit 100C I can see the Mhz go down in CPU-Z. Cooler is seated well, I have made sure of that.

Did you make any changes hardware-wise while making these adjustments? Base clock overclocking has always been on the lower side of temps for me versus using a large multiplier. I'd also look at the voltage going to your cpu via LLC. A large spike in voltage due to overcompensation could easily cause these kinds of crazy temperatures.
