Edit: I think I found the answer to why the stability test is running at low clock speeds - something to do with demanding tasks drawing more power, and so it downclocks to obey power limits.
Hi everyone! This program looks pretty sweet. I've just done my first stability test (on the trial version), mainly to troubleshoot CPU overheating and throttling (which is a problem in my gaming laptop).
I noticed that throughout the test, my CPU clock speeds were around the 2500mhz mark (give or take 300mhz), but my CPU turbo goes up to 4100mhz. I was surprised at that - I thought a stress test would crank the CPU to it's highest clock rate. Why does it only run it at a moderate speed?
Secondly, is there a place where I can see aa report on the stability test? Like the average clock speed, average temp, average throttling etc.? I looked at the 'statistics' tab, but the average values keep diminishing after I stop the test, as though it is displaying the average value since I started the program, not just during the test.
First time posting to the forum, indeed it is my first time viewing the forum. Ive been using the Engineer version of Aida64 (registered) for about 3 months now, and overall Im impressed with the software. Its nice to just throw together a few different benchmarks and have them run how and when I want in the order I want. I was doing all this with macros before
Ive recently gotten back into building PCs, took a long hiatus back in the late 90s my last system having been assembled was a 440BX based chipset on an Abit motherboard, both of which no longer exist at least in a meaningful way lol. I was an OC neophyte back then, as I am now, although I do enjoy the hobby/sport(?)
I decided to wade into the dark and murky waters of RAM OCing, and went down that rabbit hole for a few weeks. Long story short, I bought 2 x 16GB sticks of G.Skill 3600mhz XMP mem. Stock timings sucked at 19-20-20-40-500 but I didnt know or care much about timings at the point I bought and assembled the system and so didnt realize their huge impact (relatively speaking) on ram performance.
I was able to get them to post at 4000mhz 17-22-22-36-485 and ran that for a few months, then last night got the idea to try and tweak them some more, thinking maybe all these on off cycles might have trained them to do better (i dont know if that logic is incorrect or not in regards to training, but its how I justified another sweaty night of swearing out loud and smashing keys to my wife)
Im now resting at 4000mhz 16-22-22-40-500 but I can feel they have more to give in the timings department. Frankly, im already amazed at how well these Hynix CJR chips are doing on the OC. My question is basically, Aida shows me as being first place in Latency, and near top tier in every memory bench, with only quad channel or server boards (mostly) beating me. Are these results typical for these chips and my rig? What can I do to push it further if anybody has any recommendations? And am I correct in feeling a sense of accomplishment at being in the top spot for latency, or is my joy tragically misplaced?
Thanks a lot guys, and to the Devs, great product and I will continue to use and support you!
Relevant Screens attached.
It is my first post in the forum and I want to ask about something that bothers me, thanks for the help in advance.
Specs, to begin with:
Case: Corsair 100R
Mobo: MSI B450M Bazooka AM4
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600X
CPU Cooler: Xigmatek Windpower 1266 (pretty sure it's not common in the global market atm)
GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ 8GB
RAM: Adata XPG 2X8GB 3000 mHz
The thing is that when I'm performing the stress test, CPU (always on stock values) hovers around 75 - 80 celsius which I think is ok considering it is under 100% load while MOBO temps go as far as 80-81 degrees and that kinda bothers me as I think it should not reach that far.
Idle temps are not that bad but still higher than CPU at all times, current temps on regular desktop browsing are as attached.
Do you think it's fine, or should I start looking for a more decent mobo e.g. something like B450 Tomahawk?
