FX4100 and MSI 760GM-P21 - Temp over 255C

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,



I have bought this system that came overclocked to 4.0Ghz but couple of months ago I have upgraded more Ram. I had to reset to default in BIOS due to ram not being recognised to 1333Mhz.

Story now is i managed to overclock again to 4ghz but prime95 is giving very high Temp 255c.

I ran normal 3.6ghz test on prime 95 temp was always around 44 -50c but overclocking it to 4ghz increases that too high.

When temp rises to 255c pc does not shut down and it carries the prime95 test. I left it running after 5 mins I decided to shutdown pc to go to default clock speed 3.6ghz.

Is it possible that Core Temp program gives false temp reading.

Its strange that pc did not shutdown when temp reached 255c if core temp was giving correct reading.



I would like to overclock safely close to 4ghz if thats possible on stock cooler i am running. Please let me know if you need more information.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I won't be impressed until you get 300 C.
