just because it boots don't mean it ain't gonna fry. I get that.
I'll likely end up picking up that VRM HS eventually anyway. It's cheap and a no-fuss install, (unlike the CPU cooler I a have on the way that will require pulling the mb out completely, again....)jealoussmiley.gif

You should have no problem acheiving 3.6 by just bumping up the multiplier... I doubt you'd even have to bump the CPU VCore up +.25V. I found the most stable point for my 8120 was 4.0 with only a +.50V boost to the VCore. Usually AMD processors can make a 10 percent overclock without needing a voltage bump.

I hate how hot it gets here. Prime I'm seeing 65C, in TMPIN2. TMPIN1 is 61C. Not sure which is truly CPU temp. Crysis 3 had TMPIN2 up to 58C. Might be backing off my OC some. Still no thottling though. I have a bid in on a H100 so we'll see how things go on that.

I believe TMPIN2 is the socket temp which is good up to 72 C, shouldn't be anything to worry about. I have the h100i, it gets close to 72 when running my max overclock. Core temp is more important I believe which mine also scraps 62 C which is the limit for vishera.

I found this thread that seems to be saying that the VRMs are good to 90C!

What kind of OC are you pushing? I'm using a little Antec Kuhler 620, which is about equivalent to the Corsair H60, running 4.5ghz on my 8350. The bid I have in is on a H100 not the 100i, but I figure if I get it for what I have my bid at it would be worth while.

i have the h100i with the corsair sp120 performance fans in push pull and i have an OC of 5ghz stable with 1.6 volts.

i the max temp i got was 62c and it was pretty warm in my room than, but if it is not that warm like now i get 55c max at stress testing and gaming.

the h100i would be a better choice maybe because it has slightly better performance and in my opinion it looks way better:rolleyes:

make sure u have hood static pressure fans mounted on them and have a good case airflow and u have one heck of a cooler thumb.gif

Hello Folks.. avid reader but don't post very much,,so feel free to call me a rookie,, but i was running into a slew of headaches with my 8150 and the water cooler that came with it (basically it's the Antec 920 cooler) on a UD3 board (FC bios), it seem to always be ramping up(cooler) and the core voltage was all over the place so I lowered the voltage down so that it maxes at 124, will this hurt anything as it did quieted my system down? and I did manage to get my ram to run at 1600 and I kind of like win 8. I have a chance to get the UD5 board would it be better to oc with as I've seen a lot of folks having issues with the UD3? Sorry for the questions but still learning..

Oh I agree that the H100i is the better cooler, but if I pick up the 100 for what I have bid then it would be a steal. I'm kicking the idea around of doing a full blown water setup again. I had one years ago on my old FX55.

aha oke, well the h100 is not a bad cooler and if u can get it for a very good price i should go for it thumb.gif

but make sure u get good static pressure fans on them because the pump of these coolers is not that great tho, so the cooling must be come from the fans.

some say that push is better and others says pull and some even say push pull, well in my experience it depends on how u mounted the rad and how good is your airflow in the case, i have very good airflow i think because when i added the other 2 fans to configure push pull the temp dropped 5c and maybe it is not much but under such a load at 5ghz it is pretty much.

but nothing beats a custom loop, but also it depends on what money u have to spend because when u buy an kit for 150 euro's it will simply not perform any better than the closed loop ones.

also i was looking in to the Cooler master eisberg 240Lthat performs way better than the Corsair ones i have heard also it is fully customizable thumb.gif
