What do YOU use to test "load temps" for the X6? - Page 2

post #11 of 31
It is not worth upgrading to a higher end air cooler or even a hybrid water cooler as the price/performance simply isn't worth it.

You have two options.

A) Get better thermal paste. MX-4 is highly regarded as one of the best thermal pastes. I personally use it and for my old air cooler it lowered load temps by 5c compared to artic silver 5.

B) Get a water cooling loop. I have the following setup with my 1090T and my load temps reach a high of 50C on IBT, and barely over 40C on prime95 @ 1.62v.

Very good for price/performance.

That 1.43V Vcore is at full load or is set in BIOS?
CPU/NB seems high.
You can drop your CPU (socket) temp. , cooling the backside of your mobo --> CPU area. MY CPU temp dropped 6'C (using a 70mm fan).

All the socket temp says it that there is poor airflow behind the MB. The one to watch is the core temp. AMD has stated that the reading are spot on when at 45*c so even thought they go below ambient that is because the temp sensor is calibrated to be accurate @ 45*c which gives a better view of actual temps in then norm range.

BTW truth be told you do not have to worry about the chip being hurt until you get up to around 90*c this is the point where problems can arise. The only thing going over the 62* core temp will do is lower the life expectancy which is 10+ years @ 62*c so......... You can take it from there


Also if you got some better fans on the FRIO you would also see an improvement 1450 RPM fans are nothing really.

Well your temps are up there-so you realy need to figure out how to lower them, but if your at 1.384 in bios-that may be why its rebooting too-i need no less than 1.39 in bios to stablise my 4.0, but need 1.40 in bios to acheive the 4.0 plus 3000 nb and my higher ram settings.

Have you tried knocking your ram timings down to 8-8-8-24-2t and set your nb @ 2800 just to see if it will stable out and not restart.

The CPU voltage is at 1.43V at full load reported by CPU-Z and PC Probe II. It is roughly 1.38 in the BIOS. I know actively cooling the back of the socket will lower your CPU socket temp but its not REALLY lowering your CPU temp.

I guess my biggest question is, I know ALOT of people run 4.0 ghz 1090t with roughly the same vcore on lots of decent aftermarket coolers. And according to what I am seeing the FRIO is pretty much as good as it gets unless you go for a NH-D14.

Honestly, you shouldn't be worrying. 55C is perfectly fine, hell even 60C is fine. Basically, unless you want more than 4GHz you shouldn't be worrying about temp control because yours aren't in the bad range. Just don't go over 60C, and most people perfer to stay in the 55- range.

If I was able to cure the restart with more CPU voltage wouldn't that pretty much mean that was my issue? Especially since my LARGE FFT test was what was causing the restart @ 1.4v and not the blend test which is really working the cpu/nb

CPU temp is crap. Has nothing to do with the real CPU temp . I dont trust it at all. I lowered the CPU temp because at a certain value, some thermal protection will kick in, ruining my overclocks

Does anyone here have specific experience mounting the frio to a amd chip and mb? Mounting this massive thing is quite interesting and I don't see how but I am wondering if the TIM just isn't spreading well when it gets mounted.

Well- iwill say only this again, try resetting your heat sink and tint both first, than try lowering the settings i brought up earlyer, get it stable first than worry about ocing everything-one step at a time. your not going to fry your cpu, and as far as changeing coolers-water block yes if you want to go that rout-other wise-get the antec 620 or even the 920-best bang for your buck right now.
