intel burn test and hwinfo/speedfan

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Whenever i fire up intel burn test only real temp updates my cpu temps every second.

Hwinfo and speedfan sort of pause and updates every 20 seconds or so. Once i turn off intel burn test, speedfan and hwinfo go back to updating every second.

Anyone know the cause?

My guess is that IBT is taking a much higher priority over you monitoring apps. IBT is quite the intensive application.

RealTemp runs at a higher Windows priority level compared to most other monitoring apps. When your CPU is fully loaded, RealTemp still has access to your core temperature sensors while other monitoring apps do not. Other apps requests for temperature information are simply ignored by the CPU so it can take several seconds before they get some temperature info back from the CPU.

RealTemp being high priority, is that ok while stress testing? Will the stress test be still accurate while RT is running?

Few people notice but RealTemp puts less load on a CPU compared to any other monitoring app. I don't think the priority it runs at is going to have any impact on the accuracy of a stress test. It just runs at a slightly higher priority compared to the competition so it can read the temperature sensors in a timely manner. The whole reason behind this was so users could run LinX or IBT and be confident in the MHz and temperature data that RealTemp displays.

When stress testing, you need to know how hot your cores are getting and you need to know if your CPU is throttling the multiplier. You can choose to use RealTemp that has been specifically designed to update on a regular basis or you can choose to use another app that is only updating every 20 seconds. A lot can happen to a CPU in 20 seconds when running IBT so running RealTemp seems like a wise choice.

Oh ok, thanks!
