Tjunction values for various CPUs
« on: October 24, 2017, 04:09:04 am »
I replaced a Q6600 (2.4ghz socket 775) with a Xeon X5470  (3.33ghz socket 771) and the displayed temps were almost 15deg higher than actual.  Looking around, I found this list of Tj Max values for various Intel CPUs:
X54xx was 85 deg and when I put that value into TThrottle's tjunction setting the displayed temperatures dropped to where they matched AIDA64 and SpeedFan.

There might be a better list somewhere else, but the change from 100 to 85 allowed all BOINC tasks on my MS-7380 motherboard to run at full speed.

HTH someone!
