Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've got a question. I've got an AMD x2 4200+, I've had good luck OCing' with a Celeron 346 from 3.06 to 3.8+, on stock vcore.( I'm also waiting on a PD 805 by UPS, today?) So I was seriously thinking about OCing' the AMD x2 4200+. The first thing I was told was to get the temperatures of the chip at idle and load. My ambient room temp is 20c right now, a little too cool for me. Here's my question: with Everest the chip is 24 c to 25 c, with SpeedFan it's 24 c to 25 c, with MBM it's 24 c to 25 c, but with Core Temp software it's core#1=22 c and core#2=30. I'm afraid to OC because I can't tell what the accurate temps are. Should I go with hardware temp sensors? Is my core screwed up? Are the sensors in my board screwed up? Which is right? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! I'm totally confused!!

It seems to be that Everest, Speedfan, and MBM are not set up for dual-cores, and so are taking the average of the two cores. I would probably trust the Core Temp software, simply because it recognizes both of your cores.

Yeah, the average thing did come to my mind. How do you set up these programs for a dual core? Is it like I had to set up Prime95 for this dual core ? These questions may sound dumb, but this is the first dual core cpu I've ever had. I've had several Intels and AMDs, but they were all single core chips. I upgraded from an AMD64 3000+ to an AMD64 x2 4200+ on this machine and I'm going to upgrade from a Intel Celeron 346 to a Pentium D 805, in the next day or so, on another machine. Dual cores seem to be the way to go, Seeing I'm so poor I can't even afford to pay attention, I can't afford a Conroe yet. (I'd like to have a E6600) Thx for the speedy reply.
