sorry for the late answer, i'm very busy doing the last couple of days.

It's CPU temps (CPUTIN)

hello,
is the cooler in push and pull please?
if not, try disabling a module and it should drop by about 10c, then overclock.

You mean disabling a core?

yes, best game coding I have seen so far has only six threads, so turning off a module of two threads will not impact game play, just improve temperature .

Disabling cores can't be my solution for this problem. Maybe it will work but i want to know where the problem comes from. So, as far as i can tell i did everything i can when it comes to software, im bout to get into the hardware now.

Oh, there is one more confusing thing: Since i applied the new paste the temps peak is about 55°C doing Prime95 but at about 70°C in Far Cry 3, shouldnt that tell me something went completely wrong?

Battlefield 3 is the wedding ring to a Bulldozer, as it's usage of cores is extremely nice but i didnt see that in Far Cry yet. So, if Far Cry uses 4 cores, how can it get those temperatures? (w/o OC)

Same problem here with my 8350. Running Prime95 will just shut the whole thing down (thermal protection or whatever) if the reported voltage is greater than 1,320. All @4,2 Ghz.

this could be due to the cpu-nb voltage which has been talked about in the forum. people state that the cpu-nb voltage is 1.45v, which with cpu voltage would make it very hot indeed.

Ok this whole thing is gettin weird.

I am now on my own system. I'm running a 8150 @4.2GHz on an ASRock 970 extreme4 with the same cooler as my mate (Scythe Mugen 3 PCGH). I always had decent temperatures but now i figured this out -on stock settings!

If i use AMD OverDrive for temperatures i am laughing because it stays at 48°C, no matter what i do.
If i use HWmonitor it's on a very cool idle but over 60°C as i start Prime
If i use Core temp, which has the best reviews of these 3 apps, it's on decent temperatures (with oc too)

For my mate it's this: Aida, Asus app, HWMonitor, all show the same temperature except for Core temp.

Can it be possible Core temp is the only one program out of 4 which show the most accurate (not completely inaccurate) temps on two completely different systems?



Now, if you dont have a solution let me at least know this: Do i have the right to say this is a ******* joke because our setups are worth more than 3000 dollar, those Gunnar glasses, physX, eyefinity and racing wheels make this whole thing become real but my ****** **** motherboard cant tell me what temperature it has?





*edit

alright, i mistook core temp, it actually is the core temp and not the socket temp. So it is: Every program shows the same for socket and core except for AMD OverDrive which stucks on the socket temp.
