If you're happy to do so perform steps Four and then One in Post #22.

I'll have to do both tests tomorrow. If I'm reading the CPU and GPU temperatures from my IR thermometer, what are the MAX temps I should have before I should abort the test (in case of possible overheating?)

70C tops for your CPU, it'll be safe at that temperature for a while, and you should be looking at around 80C for your GPU.

Last night I found all the Gigabyte programs and deleted all of them, just to be sure.

Today I just finished the GPU stress test, everything went well, the GPU plateaued at 73oC. Here are the results:

Right now I'm testing the CPU.

Good to hear the Furmark run went well so the GPU looks good. Did you ever have an nVidia card in the rig at all?

No, the only card I've had/currently have is the Asus AMD Radeon R7 260X OC 2GB GDDR5

Also, I think CoreTemp is accurate for my PC, just not at idle temps (which is what I've read everywhere).

I'm running Prime95 right now, all 6 cores are 100% and running at a steady 37C. I've been running it for 35 minutes now. The CoreTemp temperature correlates with what my temperature gun is reading (I'm measuring as close as I can get up under the heatsink).

Yeah, I saw that. I'm running the latest FurMark, version 1.15.1. Maybe it couldn't figure out the driver? It seemed to fix itself though as the bottom tests used the right one.


EDIT: It seems my motherboard (GA-78LMT-USB3) has an onboard graphics chip, although it is a Radeon HD 3000 GPU not an NVidia chip. Maybe that was it???

My i5-4670k is running at 35C with only a couple of light applications open under a massive aftermarket air cooler. The ambient temperature around the area of the heatsink won't be indicative of the temperature of the CPU itself. It'll be a lot hotter than 37C.

If Prime95 is running OK though it's not really an issue.
