I have the CPU at 4.0 GHz (250x16)
Vcore at 1.48V,
Nb at ~2500 MHz @ 1.15V,
HT at 2000 MHz,
RAM at 1667 MHz @ 1.65V
Everything runs stable using Prime95 but under load it hits a max of 60 degrees celcius which I've read is not recommended. Is there a way to decrease the temperature but keep the 4.0GHz? Or will I have to overclock it less?
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2GHz
Motherboard: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
RAM: 4GBx2 G.Skill Ripjaws 1600MHz
Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
EDIT: I lowered RAM voltage to 1.5V and it's currently hovering at 59C
Remember that in Coretemp your frequency is in Mhz, while in the BIOS its Ghz. So the different numbers will still mean the same thing.
Also that your frequency will fluctuate at idle or light usage, the processor downclocks itself when not in use to save power (unless you force a constant frequency).
After the above (under Prime95 and have converted it to Ghz), is it a large difference? I find that Coretemp is a few Mhz off. I would trust the BIOS.
