Gigabyte GA-AX370-Gaming K7 Discussion - Page 48

post #471 of 1575
On the screenshot you saw a thermal shutdown happened a few seconds later when Tctl reached 115 C. At this point Tctl does not use an offset on my CH6, so this is the real CPU temp.

Here is another screenshot where the real CPU temp is about the same 110 - 115 C as in the last one, evident by the socket temps. But due to the "Sense Skew" function of the BIOS Tctl is reported in the 60s (ignore SIO CPU), -20 C even in the 40s! A few seconds later the CPU crashed to Code 8 instead of a thermal shutdown, because the BIOS kept it from doing said shutdown due to Tctl skewing. I made a video of that, because I knew it would happen within the next seconds (and no, I don't do precognitions wink.gif).



So as a Gigabyte owner I would thoroughly test how the BIOS messes with temp readings.

As an owner of a different board that has no idea about these Gigas nor people's cooling solution here, I would stop the placebo. Wait a bit and I'll show you no throttling past 95C.




Who among you here is brave enough to try the Auto Voltages technique?



Seems to sustain better clocks.

Keep in mind that I am writing about stock run CPUs! Overclocked is a whole different thing, because throttling is disabled then anyway. You can drive your CPU all the way up to thermal shutdown (or crash) without seeing any throttling. At least that is my current observation without in-depth tests.

Then keep in mind that on a normal situation, no stock settings will reach 115C or even 95C TCTL.

Other than your fans or pump failing maybe. tongue.gif And overclocked when throttling is disabled I would like for the BIOS not to mess with thermal shutdown, which the CH6 BIOS does by default for X CPUs. For safety you might want to check how your Gigabyte BIOS handles this.

I also find it odd that you Gigabyte users don't seem to get changing offsets and temp jumping. If this is another thing handled differently by different BIOS versions then the whole Tctl mess just got more complex.

There's definitely no TCTL temperature skewing going on with Gigabyte boards.
For now...

I find it rather odd that you are here. I remember seeing your theory getting dumped in the CH6 thread anyway. What makes you think this will be a better place? biggrin.gif

Maybe you should be a nicer person to other people who try to contribute to others? This is not a p*ss*ng contest, but users working together to get the most out of their platforms (and money spent).

Nothing got dumped in the CH6 thread and I am here trying to help making sense of Tctl readings. If results on a Gigabyte board are different then it helps get a full picture of what is going on, like knowing that motherboard BIOS programmers might be messing with this on top of the initial confusing already present.

Exchange of observations and interpretations, you know. Like talking to each other about technical intricacies instead of just showing off overclock benchmark numbers. rolleyes.gif

So how many times do you need to hear that what you are seeing does not happen here?

We don't even have skew control dude. Since you didn't know that, what gives?
post #480 of 1575
Thanks for the information, KsaRedFx, very much appreciated! If your CPU doesn't do a thermal shutdown at 115 C I wouldn't be too sure about no skew being present, though. Just keep an eye on that one.

Concerning the offset (regardless of skew): Do other Gigabyte users also not see any Tctl jumping, like during normal desktop use seeing the temp jump by +10 C just to see it gradually drop and then jump up again?
