Does this OC look alright? temps kinda high ?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Okay so i finally got her stable at 4ghz 200x20 but i needed a voltage of 1.336vcore and QPI/Dram to 1.35v ran 3 separate linX tests using only 2gb of ram each run (20 passes each time) and not 1 error or Bsod! but my Core#0 hit 80c. would this be bad for 24/7 use? i normally use this computer for encoding and gaming and i haven't notice it get anywhere near that, only while stress testing with Linx. If i have to i dont mind buying a better cooler (not water) if needed. i currently using the Corsair h50 with 2 akasa apaches for push/pull configuration.

anyway my main questions are...

1: do these settings / numbers look alright to you guys?
2: should i upgrade my cooling or will this suffice? if so what do you recommend that's better than my current cooler, my budget can be upto 100$ if its significantly better

PS - i have included some pictures, let me know what you guys think or have any suggestions.

That is quite high actually.

I would drop your Vcore down to 1.28 at least, I get 3.8Ghz on 1.22vcore...

What's on your AUX fan in? It's only running at 600 RPM

EDIT* i think thats my panel door fan. i will try to go for a lower voltage but i think thats about the lowest i can go to keep it stable. ill mess around with it now and report back.

Okay i knocked the Vcore down 1 notch instead of 1.33750(1.336 according to cpuZ) i did 1.33175 (1.328 according to cpu-Z) and my computer froze before the first pass couldnt even finish, no bsod or error reports from LinX... it just froze. reading around on forums i see that normal voltages for 4.0ghz is anywhere 1.32 - 1.35. Is there anything else in bios i could change to improve stability?

I would say drop it down to 3.8 then and drop the vcore. I personally would prefer to have a cooler running chip than the extra 200Mhz that i'm not going to notice.

What does your cpu temps look like with the h50 @ 3.8?

I top out at about 68c Check your mounting of the H50, I'd make sure you have the fan sucking air in from outside and also make sure that the screws are quite tight, dont' be afraid

nice, i dropped down to my previous OC 3.8 19x200 @ 1.248v until i get a better cooler or figure out a way to get it stable at a lower voltage. im thinking about ordering the thermalrite silver arrow... thing looks massive!
