Im new here and im running prime95 right now, and pc wizard tells me that the temperatures for my hardware monitoring, the CPUT is 75 celcius and MBTP is 190.67 celcius (i think its a bug). And my processor is AMD Athlon II X4 645, overclocked today to 3.56GHZ and the core temperatures is 66-69 celcius.
Is the temperatures safe or not?
"Safe" temperatures is anything below the TjMax, which is where the CPU will start to throttle its performance to avoid burning out. Usually its something like 100c, but I know some of the Phenom II chips were ~60c, so might want to check.
Though good luck finding it, I did a quick Google search and came up with nothing.
70c under Prime95 is a decent enough temperature, not great but not bad. Are you using aftermarket cooling or the stock AMD cooler?
**and i've got 2 aftermarket cooling and 1 stock cooler on my processor **
Picture please? because the set up you describe is not normally possible
You are overclocking but I suspect with little knowledge, can you post a Cpu-z screenshot as well as the Heatsink picture please?
MBTP is a false reading, your Pc would have shut down or exploded if it were accurate
Cpu-z screenshot, Heatsink picture and please read This thoroughly before continuing your clocking adventures
Motopsychojdn, i googled first aftermarket cooling and it told me fans that have been buyed from a store... well.. i've got 2 fans on my computer and 1 fan on my processor.. im kinda a big noob right now when it comes to english computer names
No problem man, thats why I wanted a picture,
we can most likely identify the cooler used quickly and figure out if it is a decent one for you or not,
and yes, if you can keep the temp below 65'C for now that would be great,
Although This says Max temp is 71'C you don't want to be too close to it
so you want a picture on my processor fan, right?... well thats going to be hard beacuse im running prime95 (pc torture program) and i will not shut off my computer only for that... but i will try to find on google the pic u want
Ok yes, you are running the stock cooler there with 1.4v, now you really want to buy a good aftermarket cooler as well as see if you can lower the voltage used to run the chip, lower voltage means lower temperatures, but obviously the chip requires a certain voltage to run stably so increased voltage means increased heat, which is where the better cooling Heatsinks come into play,
I would halt any clocking experiments for now until you get a decent Hs and couple of fans on it
