Will do on the stress testing. Planning on doing it tonight.
So, rated for 62C on the chip.
At least it only goes over 63C when stress testing. everything else I do (even when rendering a picture in a 3D modeling program) tends to keep the temp below the 62C mark.
I Also noticed with my original settings that the whole system crashed on the CPU Test in 3DMark Vantage and I upped the VCore from 1.31V to 1.32V and that has fixed the stability problem. Temps are staying low with this voltage, so its all good.
I ran prime again after the change and it was stable, and I ran 3DMark Vantage again and was all stable there too.
I just love this 4.08GHz speed.
I ran a VM of Windows XP MCE 2005 and when I boot it up, it was in the desktop in less than 5.72 seconds!
IT was so fast! I had never seen Windows XP boot so fast on my own machine.
After last night (Since I ran prime 95 while i was sleeping) It seems my PC may have had a bluescreen because prime was not open, speedfan was not open, and my startup programs were open. I know it wasnt a shut down from overheating because the computer was still on when I woke up. I guess this shows that its not quite stable. And i'd have to bump up the voltage further. Which at this point, will not work because its hot enough as-is. Edited by jtc10512 - 12/15/11 at 5:59am
