Which is making me NOT wanna OC anymore. If I cant get accurate temps than im not gonna push my system or shorten its lifetime.
Can any of you suggest a solution to getting accurate temperature controls, and why my BIOS is lying ?
As for my GPU RIVATUNER seems like a common thing used to monitor temps/increase clocks, so I did some testing today with it. I noticed no temperature increases from increasing the clocks of the card up, I ran the hardware monitor as 3dmark 05 was up, and there isnt a difference from increasing clocks, to not increasing clocks. Why!? I also got a slightly lower score, but it usually varies between 100-200 anyway.
I currently stopped at these settings CORE = 765, SHADER = 1895, MEMORY = 1125
when viewing the temps in the bios, the stress on the computer is low, e.g. no complicated calculations of either the cpu nor the gpu, in fact, your computer is resting in idle state.
when running the os, both the cpu and gpu are calculations, thus making the temp go up.
the bottom line is, that the bios isn't lying to you, it is telling you the actual temp under that exact condition. if you could have seen the temps from within the bios when the os was running, the temps would have been almost an exact match.
After searching the internet for your question, I believe the cpu temp you see in your bios is measured by the motherboard's sensor externally vs the core temp measures the temp in cpu core internally hence is higher.
sooo, guys any ideas why im not getting much better results from such a high % of OC?
Also id like to know I should OC the vidcard and the processor together and run a benchmark. I dont want to damage my CPU, but is it really neccesary to upgrade heatsink when your doin an OC of no more than 5% ?
I really only want to OC my stuff once, run a 3d mark, get my score, and put everything back to factory settings.
After pushing my CPU from 1334 to 1440 7x multiplier. and the ram from 667 to 740.
I managed to score an extra 1.1k in 3d mark 05!
The temps on the GPU dont go up much, especially when the fan is at 80%. It doenst go above 50c, the CPU however ive seen it spike in-between tests from 54c-69c and go back to 54c in the matter of 1 split second.
