i7 930 Limits

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Just got the XSPC rasa kit, running good and no leaks. Currently stressing with LinX size 22000. Have it at 4.38Ghz with 1.32v

So far no errors, should I try and push it a bit higher or how long should I run LinX for to make sure it is stable?

oh, temps are average 68C.

Any suggestions/opinions would be awesome, Cheers

well depends on how far you want to go..but i am seeing good numbers already..do a 6-8 hrs marathon with linx..or do a prime95 8hrs test..

id like to clear that are you averaging 68c??whats the max temp??i'm a bit confused..well with a WC setup and those voltages you should max around 65c..

Average across all the cores is 68c. To be specific 70 68 67 66

So your recommending probably shouldnt go too much higher? or see what I can get stable at the current voltage?

those sure are hot for a WC setup..well YES just go further without raising the voltage..for sure it(raising the vcore) will add up to the heat..either way your clocks are good..i'd also suggest if you can fine tune your current settings so you can see the temps go down as well..

Mine is close to yours in volts and my temps are max 78c with 1.43v at 4.51 ghz but I'm using a rx480 and a koolance 240 rads with 2 gtx 580's in my loop.

I would just go for the 4.4 and see if your happy with the temps but I like to go for everything it has and 78c isn't too bad for the clocks I have and they don't go up there normally just when torture testing.

you're on a HEXA core..i7 970..seeing your temps go that way is a picture of a good loop not to mention you have your cards in the loop..he is just or maybe just Water cooling the CPU and for that temps..something might be wrong..

@OP try reseating your block..if it helps shave off a few degrees then its good..AFAIK you should be just topping out 60c with a RASA240 kit..

Bump it to 1.45v and try for 4.6.

Should try prime test each area of the pc to troubleshoot to make sure it's fully stable.

My 970 had some issues and I got newegg to give me a refund even though they said they don't do that so I changed my sig back to what it was when you told me that and I'm waiting for the new CPU's to come out

you are such a ninja..well given the same chip..with your VGA cards on loop and topping 78c for 4.5ghz on 1.43v its a bit hot..

My chip seems a bit toasty compared to others and I had an rs360 before on a cpu only loop and remounted a few times with IC diamond, ac5, mx2 ,mx3 and there is no air left in my loop so i'm pretty sure this 930 just runs a little hot. This is also the best temps I have had from all the stuff I used and this room is usually about 75f sometimes a bit hotter so that is one reason
