I do 3D custom equipment design, using Solidworks for equipment design, simulation and rendering. The equipment Layout assemblies are huge (10 000 to 50 000 components opened during rendering). Unfortunately I need to take the computer to clients often, so just now I bought the fastest laptop I could find. This Clevo X7200 based luggable has a Xeon X5690 and a Nvidia Quadro 5010M crammed inside ! I will not complaint that this rocket runs hot (consumption Xeon = 130W, and nVidia = 100W). I need its turbo power when modeling for many long days, because then it uses only one core. The potential problem arrises when a project is finished and I start to render. When I bought it, I knew I could not run it full throttle for many hours like on my big (and slow) desktop workstation. During initial Full load test drives the hottest Core reached 97° C within 10 minutes (distance to TjMax shown as 4°C), and from that point on the CPU Clock multiplier started to be controlled in an alternating pattern. Once every minute the Clock Multiplier was dropped from its default 26x 133.32 MHz down to 12x for about 4 seconds. As far as I can see that seems to be enough to drop the core temp down to 80° C right at the end of such 4 second modulation. Naturally the core temp races back up within seconds to about a degree under its prior temp, and after maybe 15 sec to about the same temp again. But it did slow down the climbing rate though ! After 15 min of full load the fan noise picked up distinctively (around 98°C). It hit 99° C a couple of times (around 25 minutes), but after that kept running max 98° up to the finish in 45 minutes. Strange enough on another 80 minute full load test, the system managed to stay at 91° without any multiplier modulation. this was achieved by running the Airco full throttle and pointing it at the laptop (caught a cold in the process, but hey it worked). I guess the system can work close to full load for many hours after all (and it needs to be able to do that unattended). HOWEVER : I do not want to run it so close to Tj Max before the modulation of intel (or is it Clevo) kicks in. I only want to use that safety as a last resort safety option (this speed monster is too expensive to risk for a few minutes gain). UNFORTUNATELY I DO NEED TO RUN MOST OF MY 3D MODELLING WORK ON ONE CORE USING ITS TURBO BOOST MULTIPLIER. The clock modulation feature of your excellent Real Temp 3.60 seems to be ON full time. Can you recommend a similar executable to be activated by your Alarm EXE function ? ( It would be nice if it could reset itself after a given time ) P.s. real Temp only shows the temperature of 3 of the 6 cores ! Does the alarm react to the other 3 cores ?
