From this this post on Expreview Forums, we learn that some users wrote to Thermalright because VRM (voltage regulator module) temperature is too high when using FurMark… and the HR-03 GTX bundled VRM heatsink is useless. Thermalright reply said that FurMark is not a normal application and they recommend ATITool (thanks Jeff for your help in the translation!). I published in this post a comment from Thermalright lab tests.
And from this news Thermalright seems to claim that FurMark’s temperatures are wrong… and blabla and re-blabla!
The next version of FurMark will have an improved GPU temperature reading system so this last affirmation will be definitively wrong. Currently I have a lot to do with my main demoniacWare so you have to wait a little bit for the next version of FurMark.
Ok so now, the anti-FurMark league (pressure group is better…) has two members: AMD/ATI and Thermalright 😀
I like this kind of funny stories we can find over the Net 😉
