Yeah, that is weird. Gary, btw, 72 degrees is a little on the warm side for your OC. I'm at 4.5 with a 1.32volt and I dont get out of the 60's for a 24hr run of Prime95.

I think IBT wrings it out a lot harder and this is a temporary, smaller cooler. I run lower with Prime as well.

The ridiculous reading lasted only a few seconds and went to normal, 55-65 range.
No wonder your temps are high.

So, I decided to run mine.
System Idle up-time; approximately 1 hour
Ambient Temp; approx 25.5 degrees Celsius




Gary, you are 100% correct. You taught me something today. I did not know that IBT ran the CPU hotter.

Steve showed me a coupla months ago. As there documentation says, It will bring any CPU to its knees. If you can pass IBT at least at standard you are likely stable. If you want to fry some burgers, try Maximum, I get up to 82 once.

Having said that, both tests are valid, they stress the CPU in different ways, Prime of course is doing equations. IBT does too but many more thousands per second, I think.

@Kellymac, good one there.

If we just wanted a "PC" - then we would go out and buy a pre-built.

Load temps increase ~10c from 4.5 to 4.8GHz so I've gone back to 4.5GHz for daily use
