I had cause to put the 550 setup back together (testing a Palit GTX 460
and a SATA3 card), so here's all the info...
Within Windows, Vcore in CPU-Z is shown as 1.44V idle, 1.424V under load.
CoreTemp shows CPU idle temps are 11/22C idle (yeah right, something
weird there), 54/58C max (15 mins Prime95). Loads of headroom to boost
further, but not on this board (doesn't like really high bclks).
RealTemp shows the same max-temp info.
BIOS data (Asrock P55 Deluxe; CPU temp shown as 28C, with room ambient 20C):
Spread Spectrum: OFF
CPU Mult: 24
DRAM: 784 (DDR3/1568)
VDroop Mode: Without VDroop
Enhanced Halt State: OFF
Intel Virtualisation: OFF
LAN 1: ON
LAN 2: OFF
Link Power Management: OFF
Btw, here's a 3DMark06 run:
and a 3DMark11 run:
Both done with a single Palit GTX 460 1GB Sonic Platinum.
NB: my tests-jj.txt
page has a section entitled, "TOMS CPU TESTS" -
these tests are exactly the same as those employed by tomshardware.com
for their CPU reviews such as the 3960X
(they were kind enough to send
me copies of the test suites), and I run them in the same way, ie.
using an SSD to hold the test data so that storage factors are excluded.
Thus, my data can be directly compared to toms' CPU reviews; how my oc'd
550 performs for single-threaded
tasks is particularly interesting in
this context (shows just how good an oc'd Clarkdale can be for use as
a general-purpose system).
Hope this helps!
