just to make sure, is core temp unreliable? it says that the temp of the CPU was at 30 degrees when i turned it off, but when i checked the BIOS, it said that my CPU was at 59 degrees? has something gone wrong here?
Yeah it is in the BIOS under vcore or something along those lines. I ask because my mobo had my CPU on auto vcore and thus made it run way too hot, once lowering the vcore I could overclock.
ah i see, how much should i decrease the vcore by for each time i increase the clock speed by (a general estimate. otherwise i'll just decrease it by too little/ too much without knowing what the hell i'm doing)
I'm at 3.2 ghz stable on all six cores with the factory cooler. Temps max at 55C and usually sit around 53C. I'm not saying keeping the stock cooler is a great idea, but it's do-able. Upgrading mine this weekend
Is this an OEM computer like mine (see my sig). I was under the impression that the 1045t was made only for OEM computers like my HPE 410y. If that is the case and it is a OEM computer like an HP, Dell or Acer with a stock OEM motherboard then you are not going to be able to overclock the CPU. Big box computer companies lock their BIOS so they can't be overclocked. If you have the 1045T in an aftermarket motherboard then it can be overclocked but because it is not a Black Edition CPU it wont ovetclock more than a few hundred MHz. It runs stock at 2.7 GHz and you might get it to somewhere between 2.9 and 3.0/3.1 but thats probably just about it. You arent going to get it to some crazy overclock like 3.9 or 4.5 GHz.
My brothers 1055t is happy to be sitting at 3.5 Ghz with the hyper txt3 (212 required mobo removal, and I was lazy ) running at less than 55c with prime95 nuking all cores.
So a 1045 should get to 3.2/3.3 np. As far as stock cooling goes, if you have the better of the two heat-pipe coolers amd ships, I would say you can get to 3 ghz easy, especially if you lower voltage by 0.025v
