My System Specs

Default

well-- both speedfan and the nvidea monitor both show 100% load when I'm running orthos or TAT. The difference is that TAT gets it hotter (it's not just TAT that says its hotter as the temps read the same on both coretemp and TAT.) The forum post that I found said that running 80% on TAT compares to the load that two instances of Orthos puts on the cores. (please don't ask me to try to find that post again--hehe). So if this is true then orthos obviously isn't running the cores full blast. The question is-- Will other everyday applications ever push it to the 100% load that TAT can do, or is TAT just really good at roasting those cores?
