My System Specs

Default

Well I found Prime95 and put my CPU to a Torture Test - after three hours I shut it down, nothing should be tortured that long right? Anyway it passed 99 tests in that time,failed none, no warnings issued, the CPU temp rose to 60° C. Not sure how hot is too hot for a CPU or GPU (they stayed in the 30 - 40°C range and the MB was mid 30° range. Seems only the CPU was being tested.

I also found that while I can set the system to 44x in BIOS and boot to Win8, Win7 has issues with the CPU set to 44x and shut down a few times. Works OK at 43 so I guess I'll just leave it there. 43x vs 44x don't expect that much of a difference. I can take it to 46x in AI Suite if I want to in Win8, Win7 likes 43x as max unless I'm prepared for sudden shut down.

I'll have to go back to FRAPS and see what I can see in the real world.
