Warm Scthuff!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Now, coming from a CPU with a lot less, umph, where max temps where 30 odd degrees to this CPU - Phenom 1100T.

I've spent the majority of this morning tweaking and getting it as stable as possible, (prior to now, I'd just used the convenience "auto tuning" facaility, which was giving me to many BSODs for my own comfort.

However, these day's, I believe I have my CPU running stable, enough http://i989.photobucket.com/albums/a...g?t=1303220547 but temps, whilst using a H70, reach the upper limits of 40 degrees and lower 50s, is this usual, though it keeps my room nice and toasty, high numbers is bad!

Load at lower 50's and idle at 40's is pretty good, depending on your ambient temps. But that seems to be normal for what you are running. You could run lower volts though.

Probably more than fine temps. That's lower than my 2600K overclocked with an H50 in push/pull. At 4.3ghz I get about 32c idle and 65-70c load at 25-26c room temperature, but of course that's overclocked, and Intel's TJmax is ~98-100c, where as AMD recommends 62c I believe as the max temperature. Either way, you're fine though.

I nearly went for the i7 2600k with a Sabertooth, but thought the price vs' performance difference wasn't worth it my TJ max is 95

Sorry, your TJMax is 62c

http://products.amd.com/en-us/Deskto...il.aspx?id=726

Max Temps (C): 62c

I would have gone with 2500k and the P8P67 pro if price were a concern, it's a helluva deal, but I guess that's a decision that you researched and found the best choice for yourself. I wanted to go AMD, but just couldn't justify it considering the gaming and low-threaded performance difference where the Sandy Bridge offer better price/performance than the AMD chips.

Actually it sounds like it's around 67c, but TJ max is apparently better applied to intel CPUs, and AMD CPUs are better measured by other temperature measures, and hence programs like Real Temp do not work for them. Either way, AMD CPUs do not share the same temperature tolerance or way of temperature measurement as Intel, so don't go by Intel's 100c TJmax idea.

Actually, couldn't agree less with you as the chip I bought was around £100 less than the 2600k and the motherboard, was the same price

That's why I recommended the 2500k, since it's $100usd cheaper, and the mobo is about another $50usd cheaper. Maybe prices are very different in UK than here, but the extra performance for the extra 40 quid (I used amazon.co.uk for prices) would be worth it to me for gaming. If you are doing folding, it's another matter I hear (though there is no bench other than folding numbers, which I don't know anything about).
