Why does saving CPU-Z validation put max load on the CPU?


Recommended Posts

I've been painfully aware that saving CPU-Z validation (F7) often causes a lockup when you're borderline stable but never really noticed why until I was chasing 5 GHz on my SR-2. I could SuperPi 1M with all cores and HT enabled at 4.85 GHz but saving validation resulted in hard locks, restarts, and even validations sub 3 GHz.


I (accidentally) noticed that when saving the validation the temperature readout on the motherboard would shoot to 99 almost instantly. Software reported a maximum temperature of around 120'c, and saving validation always resulted in thermal throttling.


Why is this?
