My sale is pending on my CPU+Cooler/Mobo/Memory.

I'm picking up a second 470, and I'm buying a new PSU.

I'm moving over to intel, and don't know if I should buy a z68 board now or wait one month and wait for deals!!!!!!!!!

BTW, someone made a post saying you can't downgrade from ASUS BIOS, is this true?

So when i get this ASUS thing to auto overclock for me, is it safe? Like is it stable and stuff like that, besides the temps? I now set the fans to 'turbo' and my CPU temps are between 55 and 65C when playing games without the aircon turned on. Safe?
Hiya

As long as it stays below 75c you should be fine, anything over that and a beefier heatsink/fan is in order.

The system has auto overclocked itself when you selected the performance option in the bios.

I have mine running at a 46x speed (4.6Ghz), with a beefed up fan/head sink.... running the processor flat out, the temps are usually between 63c and 72c depending on ambient temps.

Your system should be fine

But exceeding 75°C is still safe. 75°C is not a limit of any kind, but I think I hear what you're saying...

my sig rig is as such: i have run my mobo, cpu, and everything else i have into the ground, and everything has had a coat of paint, has been heated beyond belief, and mishandled, mistreated, lapped, fried, wired backwards, surged, watered, spit on, fallen off a desk, and declared "gay" by someone on another forum. but hey, it's Cocaine...and it renders video in 2x real time, and cleans up nicely.

Well I read somewhere you can. This is not recommended he did BIOS update and he got power loss in middle of update, when power was back on he started up PC and he got back stock BIOS.
Again I don't suggest you doing that and If you do so and mess up your board I'm not responsible.

The new question is:

Which board is right for me?

I plan on using 2-3 SSDs, 2-3 HDDs. 2 470s. i5-2500k + ivy bridge + 3.0 GPU on the future. Which mobo is best for me (which company, etc)?

Well I would suggest Asus (I am a big fan) a Z68 Chipset and a GEN3 mobo
maybe a this one http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/Inte...specifications

The temps are because you're using the Stock cooling. Fortunately, these temps are very safe. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no clue whatsoever if these temps can be considered normal for stock cooling with this automatic overclock that your motherboard has achieved. Although if I were to guess, then I would say that it sounds to me like the stock cooler is loose. So check it: if you can wobble or wiggle it, then it's way too loose. If it feels kinda like it's welded to the board, then maybe these temps are normal after all. So just check it and see what you got.



When you install the Hyper 212 Plus, you will have to apply extra Thermal Interface Material in between the heatpipes like this (that is, before you apply any more past in addition to this):

http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=5

So the idea is to fill these gaps between the pipes first. After that, you just apply paste to the CPU (or even to the heatsink - it's up to you) as normal because once you fill these gaps, it's like you have converted it into a flat-based heatsink, more or less. That means when you're done filling the gaps, you're free to continue on by applying paste to either the CPU or to the heatsink just as though it is a flat-based version.

If you don't do this, then your temps will be much higher than expected for the Hyper 212 Plus.
Yeah, i double checked it before i installed it in the case. It's stuck in there alright. Like what you said, welded in there.

Yeah, i know. Overclocking for novices, but i really don't have much time to deal this rig right now. Its not mine actually, shared by the rest of the family and they NEED it. I actually wasted 3 days of my life settling this rig. Anyway, when my sis was booting it up, she got one error msg saying overclocking failed and restarted it. So yeah, i reverted it back to the normal setting and my temps and clocks are 'normal' now.

I know about the CM Hyper 212+ and the heatpipe thing. Thanks for the reminder anyway. When i got it to start the first time on the faulty mobo, i glanced in BIOS and saw that the CPU temps was about 36C. With a dual fan config haha. Now its about, 45+ with the stock cooler? It seems pretty small for a cooler though. Too small.

Anyway, i was just wondering. Perhaps electronics in my country are expensive? My P8P67 + i5 2500k costs about USD $372 (SGD $470). Its like a shopping centre with many many shops all selling all these PC stuff. How much is it really in the US, including/excluding shipping?
