1055t 129.6W TDP.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So, according to HWmonitor my TDP is 129.6w (at stock clock) when the CPU itself should be 125w.

Is this common or only for me?

Just wondering because I want everything to be straight with my CPU because I'm having issues with it and therefore wanna find the problem, so I'm asking this question.

What is HWmonitor showing your TDP as?

I have no idea how TDP works so pardon me if my question is stupid.

You should be fine, ive found software monitoring to never be 100% accurate.

What are these "issues" you speak of?

That my CPU can handle 4ghz at 1.35vcore but if I raise the vcore it will just reboot/restart under stress test. It's rather wierd. (These chips should be able to handle up to 1.55v I think)

Also I do have a scratch/notch on my CPU that I didn't cause so finding any other problem and doing an RMA if possible would please me.

As mentioned above it's a software reading and a calculation based on a number of variables from sensors that are far from accurate.

You're well within spec.

How deep is the scratch/notch? if you feel it affects the ability of it to dissapate heat you might be able to rma it.

Well it's big enough to notice it and you can feel it being sharp with your finger and you can see its a notch by how deep it is.

The question is: How can I proove I didnt cause the damage? Because I didn't lol.

That's if you can prove it was defective before you got it. They may see the notch as a way of voiding your warranty.

Yea but how can I prove that?

First of all, I didn't take any pictures of the CPU when I bought it (no reason do that really). Second, I tried to take a picture of it now and show the notch but my camera is so bad it gets all blurry lol.


I noticed the damage when I was going to change thermal paste.

Well, that's the thing - You really can't. You'd have to be very lucky in terms of a technician who overlooks the defect or a customer service representative that disregards protocol (or whatever) to override the warranty nullification.

True and that I do understand.

Stupid of me to notice it now several months after I bought it. I wouldn't believe someone if they told the same story as I did lol. But let's hope I'm lucky and they can help me with it .
