    Prime95.

    I had never really used this, nor any other kind of stress test/benchmarking program. But, I had wanted to see how hot CPU would get during prime95.
    Well..... http://puu.sh/aS9IW/94ddf516e8.png


    LOLWUT? I have OC'd it to 4.2 and during normal use/gaming for a few hours when shit is at max settings, still doesn't even push past 70, mostly stays at 60. So what the fuck? How did prime95 fuck it that hard?

    its stressing out each core,unlike any "real world" application to test how stable it is & your temps

    i personally would have stopped your experiment at 80C because anything over 80C on the CPU makes my soul rip apart
    i wonder why your h100i didnt keep up but yea

    I didn't really have the chance, honestly. To top it at 80C that is. It was up to 100 within 30 seconds of me running it. Also the fact that I can't run push/pull in this system is a big fuck you, as well as me putting it together while I was half asleep, 'cause one of the fans on the rad is pulling, while other is pushing lolol.

    I might have to reseat it, honestly. I never applied any third party paste, just used the one that was pre-applied as I had never had any problems with their previous versions on older builds.


    I just don't really understand it. I pushed the clock to 4.8, temps still same as the 4.2 clock speed. But only Prime95 fucked me that hard, and I can not fathom how and why it did.

    Prime95 is designed to heat your CPU up. Completely normal.

    I know it is, but I didn't think it should have been going into the 90-100's

    I always assumed that prime would stress test it, not over heat it as much as possible. That's a terrible temp to test your cooling, I'm honestly surprised that the Haswell protection didn't shut my shit off lolol

    ohgod. 130 is one thing, but 130 in a fucking laptop. fuck me. When I had the first gen i7s, if my cpu ever hit 100 it would auto shutdown. :<

    My laptop is manufactured for war joking, but I was telling the truth when I said this laptop I use hit 130ºC on a benchmarking and didnt shutdown.
    Thing is this is weird cuz it gave temps of 100-110ºC during games sometimes and even on MS Word or Pdfs files this guy ran at 70ºC.
    I sent it to warranty and they morons said they tested it and it was all fine (fine my ass) and if it persisted it might be software corruption.

    Wtf... oh and btw my laptop is a Acer Aspire V3-571G

    Why? for me acer's have been tank PCs they run most shit, even if its not on best settings, but they survive.
    For example, Toshibas suck, everyone I had had at least one problem... disks got scratched with little hit. Run slow. Overheat and crash.
    Not for acer, they run high as fuck. At least based on my experiences.

    Samsung and Sony are nice but i only have one Samsung, its for my dad and its work only, even though is top of the line.
    Sony is generally overpriced but never had a single issue running whatever you put inside.
