Hi. I just downloaded and ran Cinebench R20 and have attached a quick screen grab I took during the render pass. With all cores running at 5gHz my temps spiked up to 77 degrees but quickly came down to average around 73 which is similar to what I get doing an offline bounce of a busy pro tools mix session. Considering how quiet my machine runs normally cinebencz really made my fans spin up In terms of score I am a long way behind the 48 core machine!Thanks for the detailed reply. It took me a while because I wanted to deepen.
Although I hardly changed anything on the BIOS, I had cloned the XMP settings from the previous version, so first I went to put them back in Auto, but nothing has changed in the behavior of the readings and temperatures above all.
Then I also tried to do as you suggested, mostly for scruple, because there was no more settings than the basic ones that you also mentioned, but despite the passage nothing has changed in behavior.
So I went to windows again and did all the correspondence checks and everything remained the same there too.
All I had to do was go back to the BIOS I had before and so I did, but surprise: the problem remained there with the version that used to work fine for me so I got worried.
I got an excellent quality thermal paste (not that the previous one was bad) and I replaced the thermal paste, even if it hadn't been in place for long and in fact it was practically perfect.
With this new thermal paste the values at rest are back to being as they were before, even with the latest BIOS, and I have gained quite a few degrees under maximum load with Cinebench R20, but this is thanks to this paste which in fact is renowned for performing well and earning several degrees.
In any case, my temperatures under full load are far from what I had before, in which at most I reached 71 degrees and I don't know why, since not even a return to the previous BIOS has changed anything.
The fact is that I still believe that the temperatures indicated are not the real ones because the radiator does not overheat in any case (and if the water that circulates goes close to the temperatures it says, it should), and the behavior, in terms of speed of temperature change is exactly what I had described earlier.
So now for sure everything is working colder by several degrees (and that's good), but I don't have the exact pulse of the situation.
Also because it has always been the video card to be the fastest one to warm up when it works and to go higher in degrees, but now it seems to have become the quiet one.
I wanted to report because I would not have alarmed anyone with these findings on the new BIOS and since the problem remained with me even returning to the old one, obviously there are two things, or something has changed with the update which then remained unchanged (but I see it highly unlikely) or something is happening to my Motherboard and I will see developments shortly, unfortunately.
I would ask you and I would be very grateful, when you return to your computer to try at least once to launch Cinebench R20 and let me know what it detects, especially in terms of temperatures, so at least I will have a reference on an app that stresses the processor in the same way , although the cooler and processor are different, but in theory they should have been designed to run at more or less similar temperatures under full load.
In the meantime and later I hope that others will also check and let me know, so at least I will have a clear idea that my motherboard is abandoning me ...
