    Did I OC safetly?


    Last night I decided to OC my 4100, the stock speeds are 3.6ghz and I OC'd to 4.5ghz. The only thing I changed was the core clock speed, I didn't change anything else, I ran prime95 for about an hour an all seemed fine. But I can't find a program which can see the temps of my 4100 so I decided to go back to stock speeds, does anyone know any programs which can monitor the AMD FX 4100 3.6ghz please.

    Thanks in advance~

    Try this first. You can use the temperature monitoring software used here for Prime95 too.

    Thanks, I get about 20-25 degrees idle and about 50 degrees using prime95's stress test.

    That's pretty good. ... . now run a standard test using IntelBurnTest and report temps. They should go higher.

    I think I might be doing something wrong, I ran the stress test using intel stress, CPU-Z shows my CPU core clock speed at 4.5ghz, but that other program called "HWiNFO64" says 2 cores are running at 4.5ghz, one at 2.5ghz and one at 3.9gh. Have I done something wrong?

    My temps went up to about 50 degrees by the way

    No, thats fine. HWINFO is just measuring actual speed of the 2 cores. Everything is OK.

    i found that with AMD, the ONLY temps that are reliable are the ones that come from your mobo programs. so i would DL and install your mobos apps to see the temps. for AMD, dont go over 62C in prime.

    Seems odd that all four of his cores aren't reading the same speed...

    AMD CPUs will start throttling back at around 55C-60C to run cooler and not burn up. It sounds normal. the maximum operating temp for the FX-4100 is 70C.
    AMD FX-Series FX-4100 - FD4100WMW4KGU / FD4100WMGUSBX

    Intel Burn test can cause overheating with AMD CPUs.

    This is true Intel Burn test puts wicked strain on a AMD CPU

    When running prime off a AMD machines the temps are more moderate
