    Short Lived....

    Well guys. After running WCG BOINC for about 6-7Hours @ 100%.. The 2nd core of the 2nd CPU hit 70C and threw an alarm. I called the manufacturer and they said that is normal. I told them that 67C was max surface temp for an Intel Xeon 5050, and they told me they won't burn up until 80C... I said giving a max thermal temp and 13C between the Max and Nuclear isn't stupid, it stops damage before it happens. At idle my temps are 34C 33C 37C 50C. After I told him that I said it sounds like an IHS problem and he agreed, and is sending out another processer via ground. So, I won't be running BOINC for WCG until late next week. Sorry guys.

    Sorry to hear that Nightcreeper - did you try re-seating the HS on the 2nd CPU?

    WCG is pretty stressfull. With he summer approaching, if the PC cannot handle 100&#37; load 24/7, there may be a number of options:

    1) if you are using BOINC version 5.8.x, you can set the %of CPU usage in the cruncher profile on wcg website. Try 75% for a start. Boinc would then run for 3 seconds and idle for one. The effect on the temperature would be quite noticable.

    2) If the CPU is OCed, take the foot off the gas a bit. educing he Vcore a bit has a significant effect (more than the reduction of the CPU frequency).

    3) Limit the time BOINC is running to the period between 9 PM and 9 AM. Specifiy this settings in the wcg host profile as well. This avoids running in the hot hours of the day.

    Crunching at 75%, or at stock speeds or for 12 hours a day, or any combinations of these would still be of great value to the science and beets not crunching at all.

    Suggest try the above solutions in that order. In all cases, I agree with you. Keep the temps under control. The safety of the equipment is paramount.
    Dual Clovertown @ 3.2 GHz (stock Vcore), 4x1GB 667 FB-DIMMS, SM X7DAE, Silencer 610 PSU, Windows server 2K3 EE.

    i always try to do my overclocks with a higher base ambient temp (30+ degrees) so when summer comes around there are not causes for worrie and i can just work on with out any down time.

    We never get 30+ deg summers sadly

    I think DDTung will agree with me on this one

    << Long time no post.
    We had a few hot days a while back so I reset back to stock and undervolted. Then there were some cold days (you know, frost) and the temp hasn't gone up too much. (Damn this MN weather) So yes, lower the voltages wherever possible to get better temps.


    O/T: Does anyone know why XSTM's output has been so low? It's like, WTF guys?
