I will run some tests today (Prime & Intel's Burn) and see how much, but by just watching Core Temp I can tell I've lowered the temp by 2*c.

I think their suppose to be #6-32 x 1.25 ( 1.25 depending on how thick your fan is). But push pull is the way to go. I have mine setup as sort of a push pull pull though. Years ago I was oppcessed with getting the PC heat out of the room, so with there being an unfinished stair well to the basement on the other side of the wall behind my desk, I ran a 4" dryer vent hose into the wall. I attach it to the rear of the PC (H60 ) via a modified exhaust vent housing from Lowes.
220 With the flaps removed of course. Ran a 12v molex plug from the PC to a fan at the exhaust end ( which runs full speed all the time because I can't hear it). Volia... push pull-pull.....thumb.gif

I even have a second 4" hose run from the exhaust end back down (in the wall) to my feet under my desk so that during the winter (now) the hotter my PC gets, the toastier my feet get....biggrin.gif

I've pondered doing this my self but never have. I commend you sir for your hard work thumb.gif


@ Jae:

I'm using xmp fine. The issue is, which I've noticed this my self or faced this issue my self rather. If you switch cpus or memory and keep a overclock profile it will screw everything up when you use that said profile.. I had to reset my BIOS to get my memory stable after inadvertently, doing this my self..

I went ahead and cleared all the old profiles out by saving a default one to all of them so it wouldn't try loading any settings it self either if I failed an overclock..


I then set my memory to 1066 and tested it stable then cranked it right back up to 1950 and tested it again, stable, haven't looked back or had any more issues since.

I'm sitting at 4.9GHz or 47 x 104.6, 1.48v~.

im a bit late to the game here, but just did some upgrading to p8z68-v gen3, with 2600k hyper212 cooler 2-fans. after being longtime overclocker with amd 1090t, im very rusty in the intel oc settings. here is what i have so far, my goal is keep temps safe, keep ht on, dont need to max chip out since im on air cooling.

cpu voltage - 1.2
vccio voltage - auto (1.8)
cpu ppl voltage - auto (1.8)
pch voltage - auto (1.062)
cpu spreadspectrum - disabled
load line calibration - auto
vrm frequency - auto
phase control - extreme
duty control - t-probe

running at low starting point here of 4.2 ghz with 42x multiplier, idle temps in realtemp are 26c-30c idle. when in run 8 thread prime im getting up to 70's. also ive disabled all powersaving features, and disabled c1e. disabled internal ppl overvoltage, disabled c3/c6

looking for any advice for these settings , any obvious changes i should make etc?
also wondering about "anti surge support" setting and if most people have this enabled or disabled, system is plugged into surge power bar already. thanks for any info

Can't fault you for getting 32GB's of RAM. RAM is at an all time low in price right now. It would be even cheaper if the Tsunami hadn't occurred. That screwed things up not only for electronics, but a lot of other neat stuff as well (cars, etc...). In fact some of the car dealers are just now starting to get in shipments of cars, but not in the quantity they're used to getting. Same goes for electronics, so as time marches on RAM will even be cheaper. Ah ha, I see why the RMA now, thanks. I think I read that a bunch went out with bad pumps on them, do you know this to be true or did you just get unlucky and get a faulty pump?

Yeah, there was a faulty batch that went out, mine is one of those. Happens with every company so I'm not too bothered to be honest. Their customer service has been excellent in dealing with it

Hi Everyone,

Hope you might be able to help me.

Unfortunately it's only after loitering on forums after purchasing parts that I've been advised that there may be a problem with some of my build.

I have ordered a NZXT Phantom 410 computer case, CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B Corsair Venceance Blue Ram, ASUS P8Z68-V-Pro Gen 3 motherboard, and an Intel 2500K processor.

I was wondering whether the above configuration would make it impossible to physically fit a Silver Arrow which I had been advised to order (and which unfortunately I have)

Will this create a problem - or am I panicking for no reason?

If so, would changing the Silver Arrow to a Frio do anything?

If neither of the above work, are there any alternatives to consider?

Thanks for your advice and help on this!

Not sure sure of the serial numbers, but is your RAM the one with the tall Vengence heat spreaders or the low profile version. I'd say the tall version may come into conflict if its used in the first slot, but should be fine in the second (and forth for the other module) slot. The Frio wouldnt cool quite as well but should fit fine. Other alternatives would be the Corsair H80 or H60.

Thanks for the quick reply Deano,

It is indeed the ones with the tall heat spreaders, hence my hitting the panic button! My further research seems to suggest it's more likely than not going to create issues.

I'm reading more into the Corsair H60 option which seems to be more elegant than having a behemoth like the Silver Arrow and I can get it +/- the same price point from Amazon France. I think I might be tempted to send them back the Silver Arrow and then order the Corsair H60. Considering I'm planning only to do moderate OC using the Asus software, I figure the Corsair option should be more than sufficient.

I've researched this build for months and can't believe I'm getting cold feet and seeing mistakes a few days after purchasing the damn thing rolleyes.gif.

You can always use a dremel tool to either cut or grind away a bit off of the heat spreaders so they will fit if returning them is not an option you want to take.

I'm in the process of trying to find the cause of my computer having random freezes. I never get a BSOD, nor are there any messages in the Event Viewer. I had a Gigabyte motherboard which had these issues, and last week I bought the Asus P8Z68 Deluxe Gen 3, swapped the Gigabyte to Asus, did a clean Win 7 install. Same issue. My system:
- Asus P8Z68 Deluxe Gen 3
- 2600K CPU (no overclock)
- Noctua NH-D14 CPU cooler
- 2 * 4 GB Gskill 1600 memory
- Pioneer DVD writer
- Crucial M4 256 Gig boot SSD (I had an Intel SSD, but I changed to this Crucial SSD last week. Did not solve problem)
- Western Black Caviar 2 TB HD
- 580GTX videocard (which I have swapped to a HD5870, but did not solve the problem)
- Corsair AX850 power supply (changed from two other types of Corsair power supplies)
- Noctua Casefans connected to Lamptron controller (so not connected to motherboard)
- Logitech Illuminated Keyboard (also tried another USB keyboard, and even a PS/2 keyboard)
- Razer Imperator 2012 mouse (also tried two other Logitech mouses)
- Auzentech Prelude swapped with Asus Essense STX, and right now onboard
- Wireless USB Stick (tried 2 different types)
- Win7 Home Premium 64bit
So basically everything has been changed one or more times except for:
- CPU
- Memory
- DVD writer
- WD Black Caviar 2TD HD (this is a secundary drive, SSD is boot)
I did run Memtest, but I guess it might not pick up all errors? Anyway, when my motherboard freezes, sometimes the power to the USB keyboard and mouse is also cut, sometimes not. The only way to get the system running again is cutting the power, and power on again. Most of the time the Q-Code stays at AA, however last time my system froze, I got the following code:
Code 02 AP initialization before mircocode loading
This code appeared after my system was working for a few hours with the AA code. I have tried to find more info on the Code 02 but I can't find it anywhere on the Asus website. Anybody can help me out a bit here?

So anybody knows what "Code 02 AP initialization before microcode loading" means? Is it a problem with the memory or the CPU?

I just did that for my 6970. My receipt went missing micro centers system.. I used my old 5870s vrm5 heat-sink which I had to dremel out a decent chunk of, and the spitfire which I didn't have to modify.

I had to modify the vrm5 to get it to be able to sit down all the way. It was hitting the mosfets. It's running cooler then ever without any fans. I put one big fan on them any way though biggrin.gif.
