The Burn

I must say, I love watching a temp monitor during a CPU burn in. I ran Prime95 for a while on its CPU torture test to get all the AMD goop good and set. Sure, I would've used AS3 for thermal goop, but I didn't have any on hand and didn't think to order any. AMD goop isn't too awful anyway.

Anyhow, the test was fun. The CPU topped out at 48* C, that's pretty warm for a San Diego, being that its core voltage is only 1.35v. But then, even at 100% use, the temp began to fall until it settled at 41* C. I stopped the burn in and watched as it settled back down to 36*. My case temp is to blame when it comes to these higher temps. Hmmm.
