Asus P8P67 Revised B3 Higher CPU temps ? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
That's fine,

Download Coretemp and run that to monitor temps. But I think you're ok to start overclocking.

Hey I got coretemp downloaded but i'm having trouble starting prime 95, i'm not familiar with it. On the first test i did without coretemp i stopped the test fairly quickly when i got that warning, which only took a few seconds. I should have told you that. But i'm having trouble running a new test. Hence why i'm taking forever to respond! sorry !

Coretemp is your best friend.
Download coretemp from here http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
Choose the installer
Download the windows 7 add on for it from here http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/addons.html

Install both, then open up the application and go to Options > Overheat protection
Then Enable it, and set it to a certain temperature (70C for me) and then enable the shut down after around 5 seconds.

As for prime95, either go to Test > Continue or to start new go to Options > Torture Test and select Blend.

If you are at STOCK everything in bios, then run it for an hour. Your temps SHOULD NOT go past 60C with stock voltages and everything.

Hey, sorry, finally figured out prime 95. Anyhow, did the stress test and according to coretemp one of my cores was hitting 67 max on "Test 4" of the stress test and the rest of the cores were in the low 60s.

That's fine,

Have you set the number of cores to use to 4.

Also, there will be around 5c or so between cores, it's nothing to worry about.

Hey, you are talking about using 4 "workers" in Prime 95 right ? The answer is yes to that. All four workers were running during the stress test. So you are saying there's nothing wrong ?

Yes,

Running 4 workers. But you should be able to select the amount of cores to use in the configuration page for test to run

Yea where I select the blend option (which i did not change, it was standard) the blank that says Number of torture test threads to run is set to 4, I would assume that corresponds to using all four cores.

That's right,

in that case you're stressing your processor. All you need to do is run it again when you overclock your processor for stability testing.
