Voltages vs Temps - Page 2

post #11 of 16
42C at full load 1.5v seems too low for that chip/HSF IMO. That 73C reported by temp3 seems more realistic =/

Nah the 73 is constant, no matter what (one of those weird speedfan temps). I used coretemp and hwmonitor and they both say the core temp is up to 45 degrees max when under load. This isn't too bad, as the default VCore for this chip is 1.4v so i've only overvolted it by 0.1v.

45C isn't a bad temp at all. here's my reasoning though..

I'm using a low power chip at 65nm with a comparable cooler. At 1.5v I get ~53C load. 90nm chips run hotter in general, but then there's another >.1v going through it. Somehow those temps seem impossibly low. Is there something that I'm missing?

I don't think so. But my case has very good ventilation and my ambient room temperature is generally quite cold (maybe something like 24 degrees, sometimes colder I guess). I also have Arctic Silver which I guess could make a difference. I've tried several programs but they all give the same core temp readout. At the moment I have it overclocked to 2530 MHz and it idles at 32 degrees C. Load gets up to 45 and I have my RAM overclocked to 460 MHz DDR.

I also have good ventilation+AS5+low ambients, so there's no difference there. I guess you just have an good chip

Even a value line DDR can take 2.8v safely, but there won't be a great deal of return on it. If you can read the IC on the RAM, know what they are will help us better help you. Some Value RAM has good IC that can OC. For now use the divider to keep the RAM at a stable speed.
