That damn Core 2...
Failed at 4.7 @ ~1.4 so I dropped down to 46 x 101.1 = 4.65 ish sitting about 1.4-1.408
youre temps are to high for that oc anyways, concave ihs or not,
disabled igpu or not..
didnt say it was THE reason, thats why i asked hokies about his remark elsewhere,
its not confirmed by others see..
also, theres no "proof" that lapping ihs is gonna make the cores more even temp wise..
i did not lap mine, i did not disable igpu, the difference between my cores was 10-15C
before delid, when i got it all perfect, the difference was about 6C,
so prolly you will have some difference whatever you do..
didnt see anyone yet, that had all cores the same temps..
1 core is sometimes called, the "sleepy core",
another core takes on the lower loads(1-3% load), or little work,
before the others wake up to help, that could be another reason
that one core is always a bit hotter then the others
and i always wondered about the bios auto setting on the cores,
arent they like, 37-38-38-39 multiplier?
is that a hard setting from factory?
could that mean, even if you use 1 multi for all cores,
theres always the hardware setting from factory, that keeps this difference?
heres a 24H prime @ 4.8ghz,
69-76-76-71C core temperature
see, even with a higher oc, my temps are lower then yours,
thats why i thought, its something else that makes yours run so hot..
come to think of it, and looking at the layout, could it be because 1 core is next to the IMC controller?
thats one thing that always works, or is busy..
another thing is, ive said this before, is that little black square on the pcb,
no problem before delid, the adhesive is higher then that, after delid tho,
and putting it all back together, its different, then that little black square is like the mount everest..lol
if you let the ihs slide to much on that, it will lift it a bit, making the core close to it, having less contact..Edited by VonDutch - 11/13/12 at 11:09pm
