q9550 + Xigmatek S1283 - what should my idle temps be? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Orthos was meant for dual cores, it only runs 2 instances of stress testing. You could run 2 of them to get all 4 cores running, but OCCT and Prime95 is what everyone usually uses. You wanna see some real heat on your cpu, run Intel Burn Test.

Hah. Now I'm even more confused. I read in the stickied superthread (http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...ring-more.html) to use Real Temp 3.00 to check the temps on a 45nm chip. So I got that.

Here is the strange thing... OCCT @ 12min in, cores read: 51 / 45 / 45 / 45 on OCCT, and on CPU Temp.

Real Temp reads 41 / 35 / 35 / 35.

I read about why this happens a while ago. However, now I'm thinking to myself... which one should I be going by. Haha.
