Re: R61 going to sleep after CPU install

Cleaned the heatsink from the dust, and now max Core temp is 70°C, MoBo - 73°C, MCH - 61°C. But what about speed control? Controlling with IBM_ECW but want it to be automatically controlled by the bios.

Re: R61 going to sleep after CPU install

Re: R61 going to sleep after CPU install

I'm measuring temperature with hwinfo32. The maximum registered temperature is 98°C before it turns off. I think, it's installed properly, because the case is heating up, which means the processor gives off heat. Why it does not throttle instead of turning off? When idle, it can temporarily stop res...
