Default Re: HWMonitor and BIOS reporting totally different temps

It has all arrived, and after installing it all i can report great results. First off i was just impressed i set everything up right first time.. i nearly always forget to do something when building my pc

Idle temps are 29c, and when playing GTA4 temps are 44c.
Intel cooler temps were 35c idle, and around 74c on GTA4.
30c drop in load temps

Brilliant cooler. Bit of a pain to install and huge compared to what i thought it would be like, but still it works great.

You should be able to oc that 2600K into the upper 4GHz+ range. If you added a 2nd fan for a push-pull you might get close to 5GHz.

He got the 2600, not the 2600K.

For now.





Joking, i really don't care for OCing. Not sure why, just not my scene really. When a game doesn't run on stock 3.4ghz with the 2600, please let me know

Just cos it can run, doesn't mean it can't run better with an extra GHz
