Well, after a lot of wasted time waiting for new boards (damn MSI!) I finally switched and got a Gigabyte 880GA-UD3H. So I've got my 1055t OC'd to 3.5 GHz and ran 10 passes of IBT on High stress level. Passed just fine w max temps of 40C on CPU.
Questions about HWMonitor:
1. My CPU VCORE shows a max of 3.31 V. Must be an error, right? My CPU would be fried if this were correct!
2. What do the TMPIN 0,1,2 read on this mobo? Temps are max of 27, 46, and 48 respectively.
Temp 0 is probably your hard drive, temp 1 or 2 is the cpu/motherboard temp most likely. 40c is real cool for 100 percent stress on the cpu, i would expect something like that at idle, especially since your overclocked.
The vcore is most likely 1.31, because you would have a fried cpu at 3.31
I guess trial and error! Some posts say for cpu temp, mobo temp, hdd temp, nb, sb, case, etc! You get the idea. I may have to try lowering the multiplier on the CPU-NB only and see if it changes any of them.
For the vcore, every other time I've run it, it's been a min of 1.38 and a max of 1.39 or 1.40. 3.31 was listed under the max.
Up to 3.71 GHz now (265X14). Passed IBT on standard setting. Want to see how high I can go on FSB without raising vcore.
I should have mentioned NOT the stock cooler. CM Hyper212+!
One last thing: My RAM is rated for 1.65v but my mobo supplies 1.5v by default. Should I raise it to 1.65v in the bios? No trouble with it so far.
Even with a good after market cooler, an overclocked 1055t shouldn't be at 40c at 100 percent load, that's way too cool. Have you run memtest or prime95 on blend. I wouldn't add voltage unless things aren't running stable. You most likely will have to enter the proper voltage for your ram, that's quite a bit less than they are rated at, but you never know.
I would try coretemp, because unless your in a freezer, it's almost impossible to have a temp of 37c on the cpu when prime loaded.
47-48 on the cpu is a bit more realistic, with core temperatures being somewhere around 5 to 7 degrees hotter. That makes sense because in a normal room temperature of 22c you should be somewhere around 55 to 60c on the cores (100%load), give or take 3 to 5 degrees for installation of your fan and the actual room temperature.
