just make sure the rest of the components are cooled as well. can't see the rest of your rig. pls. fill out the rig builder.

what is your mobo/ram?

Maybe it's the heat. My temps don't go over 46*C ever with all the tests I've ever tried so maybe that helps.

and as rdr09 says, link your mobo =) useful for us to know. I had to get tiny heatsinks to keep my VRM cooled better than nothing lol

Looking at your rig I'm guessing it HAS to be this one by ASRock
Like mine you will be advised to put heatsinks here -> 595 on the VRM part which regulate the voltages (right? yes, voltage regulator module). Heatsinks like these Zalman VGA heatsinks that have a sticky bit under them will do. When you do buy/install them follow what rdr09 said to me about them:

just be careful putting them on. do not let it touch any exposed solders and might short out the board. line them up nice and neat.

-get the heatsinks ready with the adhesives on them.

-run your motherboard first to warm it up, then shut it down completely

-ground yourself (touch the case), then install.

it will help to lay your pc on its side when installing. then, run your pc again to make sure the adhesive do its job (i mean stick to the vrms).

User Name: sjn456
CPU: AMD 4x 960T
24/7 OC: 3.6 GHZ (18x Multiplier @ 1.4 V CPU voltage)
Max OC: 3.6 GHZ
Unlockable: 6 Cores
OS: Win7 Professional 64bit
RAM: 4 Gig DDR2 1066 Mhz
Motherboard: ASUS M4N72-E (Board is a couple years old but supports AM3. Does not support AM3+. Is an SLI board. No longer use SLI, but kind of expensive board at the time.)


I entered the overclock settings recommeded by Tom's hardware when 6 are unlocked. They said they could run stable at 3.6 GHz and 1.4 CPU voltage. I've done the same as recommended and computer is very stable. No problems what so ever with unlocking the 960T to 6 cores.

But, I was not successful in the past in unlocking a AMD 445 3 core to 4 cores. Computer would boot but crash after a few minutes when running 4 cores. I was hesitant to buy the AMD 960T because of my history with unlocking. I almost bought the 1045T for $20.00 more, which wasn't a black edition. I lucked out this time since I'm overclocking the 960T black edition and running 6 cores, which is about the eqiv to a AMD 1100T

That bit ^^ to me it looks cooled well and coupled with the H50. I have my doubts on liquid cooling since I've seen just as good performance from chunky air coolers at lower prices. Granted my case has 2 intake and 1 exhaust fan and one of those specialized high airflow Noctua fans on the Scythe Mugen 2.
You say you get ~60*C when you use Intel Burn Test? I'm sure the H50 should do better than the Mugen

Mikey,

Were you not able to unlock the 960T to 6 cores? I can't tell by your last two posts. I was not able to unlock an AMD 445 in the past from 3 to 4 cores. It would unlock okay but computer would crash after a few minutes. The 3 core was so cheap cost wise at the time I didn't care. This must have been a 4 core that didn't pass QA and made a 3 core. I was surpised I was able to run stable with the 960T unlocked to 6 cores, but it runs great even overclocked a bit.

Its possible your 960T may be a 1100T or some other 6 core that didn't pass QA and AMD made it to a 4 core.

i wish i could figure out what my true cpu temps are. everything reads them differently. i don't get it. i have core temp, Everest but the temp is off from what i see in the bios. i hate to setup core temp to what the bios says and have it be wrong and cook something. what should i do?
post #609 of 2790
Fryer,

I use hw monitor and speed fan. Try them. Now, unlock the core temps cannot be read.

__________________

just want to add. when our chips are locked the core temps are always reading a few degrees lower than the cpu temp you will notice. so, if your cpu temp is 55C loaded, for example, the core temps might read around 40 - 43 C. add 10C (yes, i add 10 on mine not sure about others), then they go up to 50 - 53C, which are still lower than the cpu temp. in other words, if the cpu temp do not go any higher than 62C, then you are not going to burn anything. however, there are other temps we still have to account for like the motherboard temp. mine stays around 40C.

i dont know what my "core temps" are, due to the monitors i use not recognizing them-anyone know what will?
but my cpu temp is at 48c after prime.
i have been running this 24/7 for 2 weeks so as of now this is what i will keep.
i have just set the bios to default and see what i can get on a quad core. since it is all at default (i did turn off c&q and such) i can read the core temps-18c right now and the fans on my rad are at 1/2 speed
ambient temp is 63f.
-dimwit-
lol, i just went to close everything to start my oc and i forgot prime was running, so the 18c was with prime running for 30 minutes-not bad, that is ambient temp

dim,

core temp readings become disabled on any amd chip that unlocks. i've experienced this with a sempron, 2 tri-cores and my current one. just go by the cpu temp. check the difference between the cpu and core temps when the extra cores are locked (stock and overclocked) - use those as your reference.

for me 50C max is safe for winter.
