CnQ can cause problems while testing stability. I always disable it until I know the rig is stable

Yes 60c 100% i'm very sure yes. Every chip is different, maybe you'll get a better chip than mine. you have to disable almost everything related to power saving feature for the cpu and CnQ of course if you want to see it stable. Idle temp is irrelevant here it will depend on the ambient temps and how good is your airflow as well.

hey got a question. what temp monitor program do you use? im getting conflicting reports from speedfan/core temp/asrock extreme tuner. speedfan and asrock only show cpu temp which idles at 25C. core temp shows individual temps as 18C idle(which could be possible as its 12C in my room right now) with a max temp of 26c. i really dont think core temp is right(as much as i want it to be).

Max temp while gaming is 34C. nothing i have done has stressed this CPU at all lol.

For comparision, my q9550 at stock hit 60c easy while gaming.

I use HWMonitor, and i keep a close eye on the core temps and not the Cpu temps. Core temp readings are good enough for AMD. Mine is idling @ 36c and the ambient is 28c and that is the CPU temps the Core tmeps are 16c Idle right now and this is what i care about it when i look at AMD temps just the Core.

at stock my cpu V is sitting at 1.382-1.40 is that high for stock?
post #4227 of 8112
There is no need to disable QnQ becouse on full load its automaticly disabled, and it will not interfere with stress testing. I have lots of experience with overclocking Athlon, Phenom and now im overclocking FX. QnQ is on allways.

well yeah i have a good airflow... 5 fans on intake and 2 outtake... my mobo temps NEVER pass the 32°C mark... not even at high voltages and stuff...

another question... will my ram sticks be automatically on 1866 as soon as i pop th bd in??

real temp
post #4230 of 8112
can anyone explain why turbo actually lowers the clock rate and makes it run like a celeron? i mean jeeze its an 8 core and im not even talking about running tests when its slow, i just had ventrilo open. thats the only thing...

also what are you guys getting GFlops? im only getting 27 and my old Q9400 got around 31?

and im not huge on AMD chips so could someone suggest a HS thats around $60-$100?
