Proc temperature

Post by mallet » Sun Aug 30, 2015 5:29 am

Hi,

R Drive Image gets an AMD FX-4100 Quad-Core Processor up to 167 °F (75°C) :shock: . Is it normal ?

Since last version, I get an temperature alarm bip, which I didn't get with older versions.

When R Drive is closed, temperature comes back to 77°F...

For the test purposes, can you ran R-Drive Image with almost no compression for the images? The only task R-Drive Image uses full CPU power for is compression.

Thanks.

Processor's temp is cooler with less compression, that's true.

But since I use DI (2 years), I always use the higher comp to gain room on my external HDD, and never I have seen such temperature with former versions !

My comp was beeping without end, and I had to stop imaging !

Good day.

I forgot :

I made an image with Paragon HDM Pro 15 to compare, with highest compression too : temperature was not getting as it did with DI's latest version.

Can you please estimate the processor load when R-Drive Image creates images without compression, using Resource Monitor?
