Is this normal in prime95?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
As you can see from the screenshot I have attatched, I am doing a general stress test on my system.

I am using Large FFT's at the moment to test my overclock and the furmark to make one of my cards work so the chipset is stressed.

My question is as follows:


Is it normal for one of the cores to be trailing behind like this? Core 2 also reports a lower temp than the rest as you cans see in core temp?

The core that isn't working as hard is probably giving power to your graphics card so that it can run Furmark. This same sort of thing happens to Folders when they run both an SMP client and a GPU client. 3 cores are dedicated to CPU folding, the final core gives itself to power the gfx card.

Ok, its has caught up and is about level now anyway lol.

The card which is being stressed by furmark is hitting 72 degrees... I think this is safe for an 8800GTX but its because I haven't got a fan blowing cold air onto the cards cooler. This will be sorted out soon.

That's fine for a GTX. I think the thermal rating is somewhere up near 90C, so it should be fine. If nothing else, load up gpu-z and set the fan to 100%.

The fans are hard set to 100% (I cut the fan speed cables )

Don't worry, I know why the temp is at 72 fully loaded.... Because I havent got my intake fan near it like I used to
