Yes, Intel Burn Test does that to your temps. In contradiction to what Intel says, let the 10 passes do their thing. I easily get temps of high 80's on my E8500 @ 4265.9MHz 1.448v while running the test. Intel Burn Test was made to use everything in your processor and push it 100%, therefore giving higher temps, and a more reliable outcome than any other stability test.
Hmm.. your vcore reads 1.376v. Did you enable LLC?
edit: to quote Psychlone on Guru3D forum:
"I don't trust a system to be completely stable unless it will pass a 24 hour run of Orthos Stressprime "Blend" at priority10, but if you just want to see how hot your system can possibly get, Linpack (IBT or Intel Burn Test) is the best. It will heat your system up faster than anything else, and it has a better chance of creating higher temps than anything else.
Only issue I have with IBT is that it only runs for roughly 600 seconds (depending on your CPU speed), and I refuse to trust a stability application that is limited in that way - even though it runs your rig hotter and faster than anything else, I've seen rigs fail a simple Prime95 in 20 hours where it passed 5 consecutive runs of IBT.
No matter what program you use, ensure you're paying very close attention to your full-load temps of the cores of your CPU, not the 'CPU' temp...there's a difference. The core temps are the actual temperatures of the cores on the CPU, and what most monitoring apps call 'CPU' is actually the socket itself, not the CPU. The socket can easily be 10*C lower than the actual cores - so it's the cores that you need to be paying attention to.
Foxconn's own monitoring software does a decent enough job, but you should back that up with CoreTemp as well as Everest Ultimate just to ensure you've got correct readings from your sensors.
DO NOT RUN ANY STABILITY PROGRAM WITHOUT MONITORING SOFTWARE RUNNING!"Edited by DChat - 3/6/11 at 2:51pm
