Got my 7700 @ 4.7GHZ at 1.22 volts. Max temps with prime95 stress test Top out at about 70C with intel aftermarket TS15a cooler. My chip is able to hit 5GHZ at 1.3, but temps get to high for my liking.
Ive recently just started using asio on my TiHD and noticed the same effect. WASAPI seems much warmer. (realistic)Im in exclusive mode right now in foobar for the first time and from what I can tell it's blows WASAPI "shared mode" and both asio4all away.WASAPI "exclusive mode" via foobar for me.
Thanks guys! All set and running now. Ended up going with a Raid 1 with my 2 500GB hardrives (music), and used the ssd fo my boot/game drive.
RST tech will obviously report if my drives have any issues regarding S.M.A.R.T. right?
