When is a !00% not...........

...........a 100%. Been doing a bit of checking the computer today after giving it a clean of all the dust inside, I thought it would be good to check temperatures ect so I put the CPU under load using Intel's own diagnostic program. I run my i5 2500K at 4.3GHZ and running the test which loads the CPU 4 cores to 100% the temp never went above 60deg, however it's a different story when I run FSX the temp goes up to 71deg which also loads the 4 coresd to 100%. I'm not to bothered about the difference as the the temps are well within the limits, just curious as to why there's difference. :think:

Cheers
Rich

Aye the weathers changing, much cooler at night now, I don't mind the cold it's the rain that get me :twisted: . Funny thing about metric measurements is I use, Pounds and Ounces, Feet and Inches or sometime metric or both at the same time (3mts of 2"X2") but when it comes to Temp I can only think Celsius.

Cheers
Rich Going metric inch by inch
