Intel Burn Test

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Im a noob and starting to overclock my i7-950 and when I run prime its always on 100% load but when im running Intel Burn Test on Maximum it moves from 20-60 mostly and maybe a 100% for a few seconds..Is this right?I thought this would be better then Prime.

ok just seemed weird because it hard to tell what my true temps will be at 100% load like prime does

Your temps will be higher with IBT.

Use P95 to find a steady load temp tho.

This.

I heard somewhere online that IBT for 8 minutes is equal to like 40 hours of Prime95 because it simply puts more stress than P95 alone.

Do you tend to turn HT off?Those are some nice temps.I have just moved the BLK to 155 and left everything on auto.It runs fine at 3.565 but I know I can move the core voltage down a bit because its sitting at 1.256

HT is on. Volts are 1.272v. My temps might be nice because of my NH-D14.
