Hi, my name is Gabriel and I´m from Argentina.
Since the moment i´ve bought my E4500 M0 Stepping i was surprised cause it seems to be really cool using Intel Cooler with Artic Silver 5. I´ve overclocked it and i put the voltage at 1.368V Full Load (Prime 95 Small FFTs) what makes the Realtemp to show only 62º.
I was really happy and then i noticed that most E4xxx Had higher temps than mine, so i started to search in forums and some people told me that if my E4500 shows a TJmax of 85ºC in programs i have to add 15ºC to the temperature showed in programs. Or, what is the same, to adjust the TJmax to 100ºC. At the moment i was really scared, so i went to the bios in order to reduce the voltage and the OC too...
Days ago i decided to test a little things in my processor. And one thing was to set 1.5V at Bios to see if my E4500 reached up the TJmax and started trottling. Realtemp showed me 74º, and if we add 15º Plus to this temp the conclussion is that at that moment my E4500 was at 89º what´s supossed to be 4º Above de TJmax.. 22 Minutes passed and Prime95 was still running at 1.5V voltage without and error, BSOD, or lower frecuencies in the Processor.
I´m really confused cause i don´t know what to think about it..
I ´ve attached a screenshot of Cpu-Z and Realtemp showing my Processor at Idle.
P.D: I have tested the temp of the heatsink and it was about 42º with my E4500 showing 62º at 1.368V. Excuse me if my english is bad, my foreign language is spanish
