post #1 of 3

Hi again guys.

I just noticed that I encounter cpu throttling when using dual prime95.
I don't get it. why does it happen? My temps are great!
48c on full load!

In your BIOS, you're EIST or Thermal Monitoring or Enhanced C1 may be set to an incorrect value. I thinnnnk that if Thermal Monitoring is set to TM2, then the CPU throttles earlier... could be wrong though.

I'm afraid I haven't got anything like what you mentioned in the bios

EDIT: Besides, I got the new freezer cooling today. Until today I was using stock cooling and went up to 60c on full load! No Thermal throttling then. I was running at 3.5ghz with stock cooling, and I'm running 3.8ghz now. However, like I said temps were 12c higher!
