cpu hysteresis

hey everyone, how are we today?
does anyone know what cpu hysteresis temperature is? For my via hardware monitor the alarm is set at 40C, ok i can remember something from physics about hysteresis about electrons moving across a field or something, but how is it related to the cpu?
also i thought that cpu hysteresis was a bad thing but the alarm for hysteresis goes off when the cpu is below that temperature
:confused:

so has anyone got any idea what hysteresis does to your cpu cos my cpu often sits at 40 to 45 full load and i was wondering what effect it is having, thanks

i've always wondered the same thing... wtf is it?

i'm not worried anymore, though. if it made any real difference with anything at all, it would be seen around a lot more and us geeks would know about it. so, pretty much just ignore it.

I think its related to the term "electromigration"

Electromigration is when the current moves through the CPU's data channels, they get slowly worn away. Eventully they will wear out to the point where they dont work (Though that takes at least 10 years). Higher temperatures, and overclocking can accelerate electromigration.

electromigration-yes,thats right and histeresis is something else,not related with cpu and temp(well,maybe,the cpu cooler has histeresis related temp vs rpm).

goatman, if you have a via chipset, via hardware monitor should have been included on the cd that came with your board. motherboard monitor is another alternative which i prefer
