Check you BIOS temps, the CPU will cool down quickly so it is just an indication of the temps.

Also use Core Temp and Speed Fan to check against Real Temp.
It's not unusual to have different readings but, they should be fairly close.

I wouldn't recommend going past 78°C on any test, you should find out why the temps are so high.
If they are due to OC or CPU cooler problems.

I'll take a look at your thread.

^^^ hey can i setup one of these temp monitor programs to run in the background while the CPU stress test runs so that if it overheats it shuts down the computer / saves the hardware from any damage? really dont want to sit next to my PC for 6 hours if at all possible :~)

Hello Kaizer,

I don't know of any programs that will do that off the top of my head, but in reality, you only need to watch the program for the first 5 or 10 minutes. After that time, your system will be just about as hot as it's going to get, so you can walk away for the rest of the time.

Otherwise you won't know if one of your cores has failed etc

(And I personally prefer Realtemp over Speedfan, but that's just my opinion)
Hello if I am testing a single core processor can I leave 'Round off checking' alone?

It's the temps that are more important than the icons.

I'm assuming you're on stock cooling?

Yes, No Overclocks, etc, I did change the fan speeds and core speeds in SpeedFan, but then immediately reset them.

And I haven't opened the case at all so no upgrades.
