Unlocked 555be Temps??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Working on my brother's Setup and just unlocked the extra cores on the 555be..Everything went smooth just as expected and then started prime small test and within 5min on 1.39v the temps were at 71c using everest . It idle's at 34c and in texas the temps in his house are really worm..I have a similar setup with a h50 with max temps around 53c at 4.1ghz. He is using the stock cooler at the moment untill his h70 comes in the mail. So was just wondering if this is what people are talking about the faulty chips or just the crappy stock heatsink..thanks

I know for a fact that unlocked chips can give you some weird readings. My old 550BE unlocked to a tri core never gave inaccurate readings. What I did was I got a couple of CPU temp programs together and calculated the average between them on idle and under load. Also if you have a thermal shutdown option in the bios, set that so when it gets to hot, PC kicks off. Best things I could think of.

Used hwmonitor and everest with same results..10min and hit 74c then stopped the workers..cpu fan is at 100%..So how are people claiming 3.8-4.0 with stock coolers??

The CPU would have shut down the computer automatically if it went past 60*c, your temp readings must be inaccurate.

use hwmonitor
lock up the cores, compare the socket temp with the cores under load
then add the difference between cores and socket when the cores are unlocked

socket is normally around 5c below the core temps

The high temps are because he is using the stock heatsink, which was designed for a dual core (i'm sure u held it, it's pretty crappy) now as it's unlocked it's going to be going from 80w TDP to a 125w TDP (give or take a few) the stock heatsink just can't keep up, i would say lock the cores back and wait till his H-70 comes, atleast u know now that the cores unlock.

When the H-70 come just check for the unlocked core stability you can do this by:

1) Run a stress test (i recommend LinX run it for atleast 2hrs)
2) Run some games (make sure no stuttering is talking place i.e. sky shuttering and everything else is fine)
3) Encode some video (if the system does not freeze, this is a pass)
4) Finally do some folding (ultimate test in my opinion)

Optional

1) If you have a linux partition, try compiling some code
2) For some real number crunching, download a password cracker and password protect a word doc for example then run a brute force or a very large dictionary file to crack the password.
