Will a Phenom 2 x6 1055T throttle if it starts to overheat?

The reason I ask is because of how low the "safe temp" for the chip is.
62c is incredibly low, and I actually hit 62c running intel burn test.
Core temp is around 50c in intel burn test, but cpu temp hits ~62c.

  1. Try stressing with Prime95.
    Most of today's CPUs will shut themselves down at 100 C

    62C is the thermal limit for the X6. What cooler are you using?


    Using the stock cooler and HSF, but with a case that has bad airflow.
    I put a tiny house fan on the side to blow in, but I was really short on cash for a case this year.

    If you're going to try and overclock just open the side of the case and have a fan blow into it. What voltages and speeds are you using?


    I'm not ocing.
    Something weird though - when I was running intel burn test, the cpu hit 65c (bios threshold is 60c), but it didn't start to throttle down.
    Would this mean that it was an incorrect temperature reading, or that the cpu won't throttle down?

    Wow 65C on stock volts? Go into the bios and pull down the Vcore to 1.35 and run it again and monitor temps with hwmonitor


    thanks a ton!
    I dropped volts from 1.552 (which it was set to by default for some reason) to 1.35 and it capped out at 53c with intel burn test :D

    Sponge,

    You can probably get away with 1.285-1.300 as well.


    Thanks a ton! I'll keep it at 1.35 right now, and probably drop it to 1.30 depending on how hot it gets this summer.

    Do you think I might have possibly damaged the cpu by running it at 65c? I don't think so, since it is running fine now, and it was only for about 10-15 sec at a time that it was over 62c for about 2 mins total.
  6. Anyone know how to stop the 1055t from throttling it self down during priming?

    Its throttles down from 4ghz to 2.1ghz when the CPU hits 57c or 55c... the cores sit at 43c

    The Vcore max is 1.47

    Mobo is M4A78TD-V EVO

    Im using the H50 with a antec tricool at 2000rpm

    Ive searched the bios and have already turned off cool and quiet and AMD turbo


    Thanks
  7. I find it weird that the PII x6's thermal threshold is only 62'C, whereas i7s are fine well into the high 70s'C and low-mid 80s'C...

    mine seems to be 57c :(
  9. =(

    Weird, why are AMD thermal limits so low?
  10. I dont know but im only hitting that temp with a 4ghz overclock from a 2.8... so i guess it sort of makes sense.

    I have the Asus M4A87TD EVO motherboard, and I noticed mine did that also soon as it hit 57c during the prime95 test. I ended up backing down the speed a little bit and lowered the volts some.

    I had thought it must be because my board doesn't have any heatsinks on the mosfets. But since yours does it also, and I think your board does have heatsinks on the mosfets, so maybe that isn't the reason.
  12. Actualy that just tells me how much my Heatsinks suck... because the mosfet is the problem.... I've touched the heatsink during priming and almost burnt my finger.

    So what I did was rest a 120mm fan on the top of my video card so it was blowing upward right on the heatsink then out my top fan... and I was able to hit 62c b4 throttling
