Is there any real way to know what temps are when unlocked?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I tested my CPU under prime 95 for 1 hour and max load was 32C with the fan at 45% but I keep hearing of people cooking their CPU's to death when unlocked and that worries me is there any way to know what my temps are when unlocked? I do have an AUXTIN and CPUTIN and both say 39-43C full load depending on my room temps, but i read that those are not actual temp sensors. I don't see any socket temp readings in any monitoring programs so i assume my MoBo doesn't have one.

Just go by CPU temp. All amd chps that unlock will not register the core temps. CPU > core temp always by a few degrees. Check the difference between the two when locked and that difference should be the same when locked. Your chip is freezing.

Yep. The CPU socket temp read by the motherboard sensor is the only way to do it when unlocked. It will almost always be higher than actual core temp so as long as it stays under the redline, you'll be fine.

A CPU shouldn't fry anyway. They'll throttle down if they get passed a certain point but its usually way up there so you don't want to test it really if you don't have to.

i dont have a temp called CPU. with the core locked down my CPU is idling at 15C because its freezing here.

my MoBo doesn't have a socket temp.

just go by cputin (this is the cpu temp also known as socket temp) and keep it under 62C. nothing to be concerned about if it is only showing 43C max. actually if both cputin and auxtin are below 62C - it is all good. auxtin i believe is mainboard or north bridge temp. check out mine . . .

483

i believe my System temp is actually my Mainboard temp.

i was just looking at the cpu support list for your mobo and it includes the 125W thuban. actually your mobo supports up to 140W cpu.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=AOD790GX/128M

you just need this little heat sinks to protect the mosfets.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708012

i am pretty sure that mobo will support the 960T with the P1.90 bios version. just a thought.thumb.gif

oh i know it does but i spent all my money getting the MoBo and the 4870. but my next CPU will be a 1045T or 1100T.
