AH, thanks, I see your point. Running IBT maximum used to report 93C tctl, now it reports 10C less or 83C tctl and 63 tdie.
I can see if it will now not shut down in IBT at 4ghz, but it still is silly even if this works because I think the REAL temp is probably
73C during IBT Maximum, so the offset just fakes it 10C lower. I would think faking it 20C lower would be ideal and real, but then
again who knows, I could be burning up my chip if it is really at 93C, but having a corsair h100i and using 1.4v or so everyone
is around 73C stress testing, 63C would be way too good for that cooler and 93C is way to bad for it. The REAL temp has to be somewhere
between 73C and 93C, but just arbitrarily setting it to say 83C is not reality or useful I really would just like to know what my real temperature
is. When I had the 1700 overclocked to 3.9ghz with the same voltage and Wraith cooler, I could feel the bottom of the heatsink
and it was very hot to touch but not burning, so I knew the temperature reported was real. Well you can't touch a waterblock AIO
and tell anything unfortunately. So everyone is just guessing at what their 1800X temperature is? I find that hard to believe. Doesn't @chew or @elmor
know the proper offset to get the REAL temperature, or is what I am doing with 280 instead of 272 and getting 10C lower the REAL temperature?
P.S. I assume even if I change skew and see my cpu as 83C, but in reality it is 93C or 103C, the cpu will shut down and protect itself regardless of what I set skew at and see in Hwinfo, right? I'm not gonna burn up the chip by doing this as long as I don't go over 1.45v right?Edited by hotstocks - 4/26/17 at 8:00pm
