RT 3.70... Suddenly...

Hi!

I have been away from OC'ing for a long time now. Am coming back since I am on sick leave from work for a bit and being at home is boring. I dl'ed my trusty old RT and plugged it into my system. All worked perfectly until about an hour ago and suddenly on "it's own".

My confusion is this. For a couple days now RT has been working what I considered perfectly fine. Using default settings. My cpu is the 3570K and the MB is a Sabertooth Z77. I successfully delidded my 3570K and am using Noctua's thermal paste. The tech data sheet stated it is non-conductive and since I had some around, thats what I went with. After the delidding RT reported pretty much the same temp ranges across my 4 cores until about an hour ago. Here is a sample of what I am seeing now:

This has been going on for an hour and I have since restarted my computer to see if it was a glitch. My concern would be that RT is only reading one core temp but that makes no sense since it happened while I was viewing a youtube video and listening to some music with Foobar2000 (AC/DC Hells Bells!).

I'd love to say that my cpu is an excellent chip in every respect but I know that I am not that lucky. I would also love to say I am a "delidder extraordinnaire" but nahhh.... Any thoughts? Was going to re-install RT but wanted to check with you guys first.

Thanks.

Never mind... I think I hit the "Average Temp" option... Thanks anyways! Was a good trivia I guess.

How about run 1 thread of Prime95 Small FFTs. Open up the Task Manager, go to the Details tab, find Prime95, right click on it and choose Set Affinity to move Prime95 so it runs on different cores. You should see the peak core temp move as you move Prime95 around to different cores of your CPU.

If I can re-create the issue again, I will give this a try and get back to you. Since switching from the average to the current temp (by right-clicking on the system tray readings) the temps are as they way before... between 5-8C apart.
