i have overclocked the Q9300 to 3.0 ghz (400mhzx7.5).. when at stock clocks i conducted a sensor test from real temp. and at maximum load the temperature was 65 degrees max on core 1 and the other cores had less temps. well now that i have overclocked and conducted the test again it's showin a maximum temp of 75 degrees on core 1 and other cores also had 70+ temps. Are these temperatures high?? and i am using freezer pro 7 (not the revised version). Are these temps really high for a q9300.
PS, the movement shown in the sensor test window of real temp is (5,6,7,6) what does it mean? and what should i set the TJ max to in Real temp? for q9300
You can run Prime 95 to check for stability some people run it for 24Hrs. I do not believe that running it that long necessary. I run it for about 6Hrs and run Real temp at the same time to monitor core temps. I have done 24hr runs in the past and had systems pass with no issues only to have stability problems two days later. My current OC has been stable and I only tested it for 3Hrs.
