<div style="font-style:italic">Hi again guys.<br />
I just noticed that I encounter cpu throttling when using dual prime95.<br />
I don't get it. why does it happen? My temps are great! <br />
48c on full load!</div>
</div>In your BIOS, you're EIST or Thermal Monitoring or Enhanced C1 may be set to an incorrect value. I thinnnnk that if Thermal Monitoring is set to TM2, then the CPU throttles earlier... could be wrong though.
I'm afraid I haven't got anything like what you mentioned in the bios<br />
EDIT: Besides, I got the new freezer cooling today. Until today I was using stock cooling and went up to 60c on full load! No Thermal throttling then. I was running at 3.5ghz with stock cooling, and I'm running 3.8ghz now. However, like I said temps were 12c higher!
