My System Specs


Here's what I've come up with WRT my impression of the IC7 peaking at max temp vrs MX2 staying fairly consistent.....

The graph at the top is the IC7 and the one on the bottom is the MX2. Don't get caught up with the actual posted temps, as these are coretemp temps, and I'm not even sure if these MX2 readings are the actual ones from the run that ended up being recorded... I only know from the time frame that they are MX2.

If you look at the temps on the top graph (IC7) you'll see that the lower "load" temp is fairly consistant, while the max "load" temps are temporary spikes rather than the norm.

Looking at the temps in the lower graph (MX2) you'll see that the trend is just the opposite. On this graph the higher "load" temp (max) is fairly consistant, while the temporary spikes tend towards the lower temps.

Based on this, I'm pretty sure that the IC7 "average" temps over the whole 1 hour time frame would be at least 1c better (probably more) than the max/min peak readings would indicate.

Does that make sense folks or am I looking at this the wrong way?
