instead of using prime use intel burn test,

IntelBurnTest v2.3 download from Guru3D.com

just select the max amount of ram and do 8 threads and start it. be prepared to watch temps skyrocket. expect temps in the 70's for this. that's normal

Ok, so, I put the 4600 MB of ram. Here's the output.


Time (s)
285.774

Speed (GFlops)
32.2331

Results
3.853899e+006


I have no idea what they mean.

My CPU Temp went up to 54C.

CPU Core #1: 62
^This was the highest, the other #2,#3,#4 core stayed below this.

The VREG went up to about 54C.

System was always about 28C.


Thanks


EDIT: For reference, my CPU idols at 28C. My CPU Cores idle (I think...) at 45C. VREG idols at 47C.
