THG Stress Test Temps ?

I captured a pic of the second Intel crash to post in a thread on some forums yesterday a few hours after the crash for discussion as the temperature stated 76 degrees as max for the prescott after that crash, however, right now I'm looking at the live intel graphs and it shows it's never been higher then 61.5 degrees...


WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!??


here's the pic:

Note the high 70+Degree Celsius temperatures in the graph...



TOTALLY Confused... is it Big Brother? Communism? wtf?
 
That graph only shows data from 4AM(ish) to 8PM(ish), not the entire test.

^^which is indeed 75 degrees celsius after the crash, like we saw yesterday.


But explain to me why here: http://www.tomshardware.com/stresstest/intel.html
(and I repeat again:) in the 5 day weekly graph the max. temps stated are 62 degrees, and NOT 76 like we saw yesterday.



Is it being censored or are the graphs being adjusted or something??

"They even mention it on the main stress page: Wednesday, Dec. 22, 2004: After we had replaced the failed Tagan power supply through an Antec device, we noticed yet another problem. The temperature of the Intel system increased from 65 degrees Celsius to a concerning 75 degrees celsius (analysis of the temperature diode of the CPU). At the same time, the fan speed slowed from 4000 to 3500 rpm. What happened? During the exchange of the power supply, the cooler's position on the CPU moved by a shade and reduced its contact pressure. As a result, thermal resistance increased, while cooling performance was decreased. Since there is an additional temperature sensor on the CPU's cooler that notices a decrease in temperature, the motherboard automatically reduced the fan speed. To put it simple, The sensor of the cooler reacted to reduced heat flow"

The current weekly & daily graphs are not correct for omiting the high cpu temps!

please explain why

The graphs may have been edited, as the temps were due to human error.

Are'nt all hardware failures caused by human error ?

Bumping a heatsink while servicing an internal component is something that everyone who deal with computer's guts on a regular basis did or is bound to do, that sensivity to human error should be duly noted.

Big heatsinks + complex anchoring mechanisms + human errors = screw-ups.

i like thier one litlte line where they said they had little to say about the amd system. oh of course, a system that has zero problems gets less coverage lol.

i never thought this test was worth much, but its funny to see them having problem after problem on the intel system and thats all you hear about, but the amd system jsut sits there and chugs along.
 
funny, and true.


Go AMD!

according to the site, AMD has rebooted once.

I can't find any comments from THG about it.

Anyone know why?
