CPU core @ 1.275v
QPI/vram @ 1.30v
Memory @ 1.64v
Turbo and speedstep off
Bus @ 190mhz
QPI link @ 3420mhz
VGA 40c @ idle
Cpu @ idle around 30c
Cpu @ 100% load 65c average on the hottest core, 67c max on same core.
All other cores are 2-4c cooler
It's been running prime 95 fully stable for about an hour.
Is all of this ok? Should I back off a bit and lower the temperatures and voltages? Playing games is the most intensive thing I do, don't do any number crunching aside from testing on prime 95, and I leave it on maybe 12-16 hours a day. Thanks for any responses.
Should be no need to turn off Turbo and speedstep at 3.8 Ghz ....my son's 920 (also R2E) runs at 3.78 at temps of 55-58 under P95 with both on and Vcore at 1.1125. If ya wanna leave that BIOS setup as is (w/ Speed Step and Turbo turned off), I'd save it as a "gaming profile" and not load it up unless needed. For 24/7/365 usage boot to an alternate profile where you're not making the CPU work at 143% of its rating 24/7.
The BIOS features in the tools section of the BIOS allow you to save various profiles which you might wanna keep. here's my sons:
CPU Level Up (3.33)
Extreme Gaming (4.2)
if you feel this is enough for speed no problem, but if you want a higher speedsteep must be disabled.
Speedstep is the intel setting for power optimization. With it disabled, your cpu will run at it's minimum rated speed, and never higher.
