Unusual RealTemp results

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
In advance, thanks for any replies.

As the subject suggests, I have had rather strange test results.
When I had excessive NorthBridge temps with my Asus Rampage II Gene board, I ran RealTemp
355

As you can see, the CPU Load goes down as the test goes.

But, now I using my new board, Asus Maximus IV GENE-Z/GEN3 board my test result looked like this.
420

As you see, the CPU load stays at 100% through most of the test. Maybe a background program was running causing this. So I did a format & reinstall of windows7 64bit, updated all drivers, did all the windows updates & that was how I left it. NO programs were installed.

This is the test result. Again, 100% CPU load through most of the test
400

Can anyone shed some of their thoughts on the test results?
I have tried to contact the RealTemp author regarding this & am waiting to hear back from him.

I am wanting to overclock this board, but am not to keen on starting untill I can find out if the test results are problem, or a sign of something wrong.
Does anyone else have any thoughts?

RealTemp used to scale down by percentages for me correctly as well and then at some point, it stayed at 100% through the entire tests, just as it did with you. I never could figure out why, but I'd love to know the answer.

 

My temperatures did scale down appropriately and so did my clock frequencies throughout the test, so the actual purpose of the test was fulfilled correctly. I still got the annoying % output "frozen" at 100% though.

 

I don't know if it's BIOS related or if it's something else. I wouldn't worry too much about it, so long as your core frequencies and temperatures decrease with each step of the cool-down test, it doesn't really matter that it displays oddly.

here is your answer mate:

from Kevin the Author of ReaTemp via PM Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Think of it as 100% load but while using a reduced multiplier. When using Intel's second generation CPUs, the multiplier gets lower and lower during that test.

Your results are normal for your CPU. In future versions of RealTemp, I will try to show a percentage based on the present CPU multiplier compared to the default multiplier. This might better show what the new CPUs are doing during this test.

No worries. Everything is OK.

Quote:
RealTemp uses the Intel Clock Modulation feature of the CPU to vary the load during the CPU Sensor Test. With the newer CPUs like your 2700K, Intel made a change so the CPU speed is varied by reducing the multiplier.

The original clock modulation method would slow the CPU down internally so you would see the CPU Load %, as reported by RealTemp, step down as this was happening.

Now when you run this test, you should see the CPU multiplier drop down. With the next version of RealTemp maybe I will include a multiplier column in this table so it will make more sense. Old CPUs, the multiplier would be at or near the maximum during this test but with new CPUs, it should drop down with each test until it can not drop any lower and then after that, the CPU percentage should start to drop down just like it did in the old days.

There is the answers for you, straight from the author

Thanks! That's fairly close to what I assumed it was, but didn't verify it with the author. Thanks for the information!
