It's getting to 100F+ here in Southern California and my room gets hot so I suspect I will have to lower all my OCs. I'll have to test one of my intensive games when it reaches 100F tomorrow.

I have had a h100i and a H110 on my UD3 8350 setup.
Currently running the H110. I took the H100i off, only because the "gadgets/fans" were not working.
The H100i is a great cooling unit (without functioning gadgets)...I was going to RMA it. Changed my mind and put it in the wife's rig.
Her rig is running a 790FXT-UD5 with a AMD 955 at 3.8ghz and it's cool as a cucumber. I then bought
the H110 with no "gadgets" for my 8350 and it works imho, equally well.

Note that both units run different pumps made by different folks. I like them both.
In no way am I "fronting" myself as an expert. I'm not. Just saying, they are simple and they work great.smile.gif

I would go for a 110 or the NZXT Kraken but sadly my Twelvehundred only supports 120mm fans not 140's

I can understand that Ozz.

I had to "mod" both of my cases. Wife's is an Antec 900 with the H100i mounted on the top.
My case, a Antec Lanboy Air, which is basically a "screen door", has the H110 mounted on top.

Both "mod" jobs were very easy to do. I wouldn't call them purty...though they are very functional.
A Dremel tool, aviation shears and zipties are your friends.

I've got alot going on at the moment, though, I do see a SaberTooth or the other uber Asus board in my immediate future.
I have learned alot from this forum. Thank You and everybody here too.

yes what u mean is that the fans did not work when u connect them to the pump?
i had some issues with the fans also but i got new ones and yes they are utterly loud but they perform very very well.

i still have the problem that wen i connect them to the pump they make a grinding noise its hard to describe really but it is annoying, there would be an update any time soon so i hope it will solve that problem.

and i an very happy with its performance, but the block can be a pain to mount because i heard some people had troubles mounting it and get way too high temps because they did not mount it properly or tightened the screws not tight enough.

but for now i am happy and hoping the next update is soon and fixes some issues thumb.gif

The last couple of weeks have just fried my mind...but at long last, things are back to normal.... turns out (thankfully) that a bad DIMM was the root of all evils with my tower... that and AMD Catalyst being a whiny since I didn't have .NET framework ver 4 on the fresh windows install...



It's looking like unless I boost the cooling up a notch that I'll have to dial it back to 3.8 or 4.0... IBT was getting it pretty warm at 4200.

Lock screen settings for my full tower, connected to a TV gaming rig. Mobile device settings, on a full blown monster PC! I'm thinking Microsoft thinks people are stupid...

maybe, or maybe they're just hoping to woo the mac crowd... just sayin'....tongue.gif

Tradesman had an interesting link in the thread to an AMD page listing their suggested configurations for their CPU's ( http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...encyguide.aspx ).

I did finally get the RAM to post at 1600 with no boot fails by manually adjusting the latency timings that were listed on the packaging. I'm sure I had tried that before and it didn't work, but maybe I didn't try it since updating to the FC version of BIOS... whatever, it's working at 1600 now anyway.

AWRite!! thumb.gif
Probably this won't and and I suspect you tried, but........
now that you got 1600 to fly have you tried 1866 again?

Hi,

I Have Gigabyte 990fxa-UD3 Revision 3
fx 8350
all is water cooling motherboard and CPU Laing pump XSPC reservoir top to pump 3x120fann in radiators.
http://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-fb-ga-amd-kit-nickel.html block to motherboard

I use Intel Q6600 my old pc.

How to overclock FX 8350 to 5Ghz In this board.What setting?
Voltage
Bus speed
and others.

Thanks

Set only the multiplier to go to 5 Ghz (x25)
Use at least 1.46-1.47 V in bios ... meaning you have to set at least +0.75 CPU vcore / +0.5 V NB Core
Leave HT and other NB settings at default.
Use XMP memory profile in bios with Auto timings.
Enable HPC Mode from advanced Frequency settings
Disable Turbo Boost / C1E / Cool&Quiet in Bios Advanced Frequency Settings
(use +/- or enter directly the values while in Bios)

I advise you to go at first for 4.8-4.9 Ghz with these settings and see if you are stable..
And of course, you have to actively cool the VRM area, it's not optional, unless you want to see a lot of CPU throttling or deliberately fry your motherboard and/or the CPU along with it.

Have fun.

Btw, I got into the 5 Ghz league by now.. wink.gif
