After a suggestion from rge (who was involved with RealTemp), I decided I would try a number of variations on the tests. The results however are all the same as my earlier tests.
I ran tests with a number of variations: with OCCT, both the CPU test (which is basically Prime95) and Linpack (which is similar to Intel's Burn Test). If you have only 4 GB's and use just a fraction of the memory the test will cycle quickly. However, I have 8 GB's and used 90% of the memory so the cycle time is about seven minutes. I ran Prime95 itself both with large and small FFT's. I also ran i7 Turbo logger at the same time. Some of these screenshots are rather large. My desktop is 1920 x 1080 and I used most of it in the later screenshots to capture everything. Again, just click on the pictures to view them full size. I also included the data from the i7 Turbo log. It shows the data, time, three clock multipliers and the percent CPU load.
Everything here is normal. The i7 Turbo data agrees with the screenshot.
Here we have throttling with OCCT Linpack. The multipliers have dropped to the minimum value even though we have 100% CPU load.
Likewise at 3:46:44pm which is 3 minutes 38 seconds into the test, everything shows the same thing: throttling at 100% load.
Thermal throttling with Prime95 running large FFT.
Some people seem to prefer small FFT; here is Prime95 with small FFT.
And, everything shows throttling.
And, in the last screenshot everything including the i7 Turbo data agrees: we have thermal throttling.
