Fun with Phenom X3 720: Undervolting

Cut to the chase:

8hr OCCT + prime95 stable, 3DMark06 stable (two runs)

Temperatures are taken at ~12PM, no air-con.

Idle temperatures - top Core is CPU temp, bottom Core is 8600GT with a Zalman VF700-Al - not as cooling as I thought it was.


Temperatures after an hour of OCCT's LINPACK.

Hot? What hot?

The fan is pretty noisy though at >4000rpm even after undervolting.

libavcodec - the default codec that is used in FFDShow, highly single-threaded
ffdshow-mt - the multithreaded codec in FFDShow
CoreAVC - don't need to explain

Nutritional supplement store salespersons eat a lot of supplements

Every time I go and buy something, the salesperson is always using it. Obviously that strategy doesn't work in the above scenario.
