Yes it is high indeed but it does gain some extra points in gaming tho.

Ah i thought so, well i am running my h100i in push/pull now with the corsair sp120's there are not many fans that has the same static pressure as those fans, and yes they are utterly loud at full blast, i say blast because when i have them to the max they sound like yet engines LOL

And what do you mean bigger reservoir to the aio?

I will take a look at a fat 240 rad because i cannot fit 360 in my Obsidian 650D, also the air flow is very bad in this case because when i am gaming i need to remove the side panel and that gives me some 4c difference, i need better 200mm fan in the front to suck more air in the case and i had Cooler Master megaflow blue led mounted on the front but it performs less than the standard corsair that is mounted at stock.

Seems there is something wrong with the fan because it hase more CF/M than the Corsair does but when i put them next to each other i feel a lot more air from the Corsair than from the Cooler master so have to return the Cooler master and get another one.

I think you can improve the AIO a lot with a bigger reservoir. There is some example on this site, too?

Hm okay well the pump is not that strong so i will not temper with the aio wit this.

Also i am going to buy BitFenix Spectre PRO 200mm Fan Blue LED - Black i heard they are a lot better than my standard Corsair 200mm fan, hopes this is getting my temps little down and do not have to open my side window to get descent airflow in the case.

I constantly hitting blue screens and i am pretty sure it is the RAM that hold me back, and i am getting irritated by that.

So if someone can help me i would be appreciated much thumb.gif

I originally had rip-jaws in mine, (2X2) it was 1600 rated and of course on first run-ups was "thank-you-GB-BIOS", "defaulting" to 1333.
THE BEST I COULD get out of it was 1600, but that was, of course before I flashed the BIOS to FC. However, for what it's worth, in all attempts to get over the 1600 barrier, it never BSOD'd. It just post-failed and gave me that "boot-fail-overclocking-enter-BIOS" screen.
By the time I Flashed it I already had the CsVengeance in so.....

And i heard a lot here that said AOD is not that great, i am not saying that u are wrong tho because it works for you but it didn't work for me so that is why i am doing it in the bios.

Yuno.... I'm sure some of the "out-side-bios" OC'ing SW has improved since I last tried any of them, (several years) but it was just so bad the first couple things I did play with, I've been a strictly-direct-to-BIOS guy ever since and doing it that was has never given me any reason to look back.

Okay guys,

I have managed to set my RAM to 2400mhz now and i am stable here for 2 hours.

I just set the RAM profile to 2400 and it gets to 1.655 volts automatically and my timings are 11-11-11-33 same as the 2400 RAM that u can buy so that pretty much raps it up about buying 1866 and OC them to 2400 because it is the same ram as the 2400, u can see it in this site:

http://en.gskill.com/en/product/f3-17000cl8d-4gbxmd-

So the RAM is basically 1333 RAM at 1.5 volts and it is clocked higher due to 1.65 volts and tighten the timings a bit, this will not say that ANY RAM can do this because i tried it and it was not stable but i am at 2400 now so i am happy with it for now.

Also i have my NB set to 2570 and the HT link at 2826 and i am pretty stable and very fast at the moment so i hope it will be stable for now.

I was playing farcry3 for almost 2 hours and was getting 61c so that is pretty good if u ask me for this cooler with 1.6 volts biggrin.gif

oooh kaaay.... I couldn't really follow a lot of that but I'll respond to the parts I think I was clear on... "bios cannot do much for you" FOR ME BIOS does everything I need it to in terms of OC'ing. Or were you getting at something else? Then I think you were saying BIOS is merely the "same predefined values in the cmos" I suspect that's at least partially true, but at the same time I think (JMO) that much of what's in and controled by the BIOS is independent of the CMOS, but EITHER WAY (as ssume) you're talking about STOCK values (I guess), to wit, ....so? BIOS gets some of it's stock values from the CMOS, yeah... and then we tweak them to OC. or were you going somewhere else with that? "The most interesting thing happens in the chipset driver" Really lost me on that one. Personally I've never been "in the" chipset driver or attempted to edit one. I'm pretty sure we got crossed signals on THAT ONE. "do you think all this software OC is using bios to overclock" THAT's actually an interesting question. I don't know. But if I had to guess I'd go with NOT. Since they are Operating-System based applications they'd doing what ever they do, after Windows (or whatever) is fully loaded, the Bios-post-up long past and in theory anyway, inalterable at that point. BUT THEN some are likely "saving your choices" and then attempting to "write to the BIOS" after you restart, (hence "you must restart your computer for the changes to take effect") I just know that whatever it was that (the one's I last messed with) they're doing they did it very unsucessfully. But Like I Said, that was some years ago and (granted) they probably have made some advances since then, but, further, I personally remain happy to do all my OC-tweaking in the BIOS directly. or... did I not understand you correctly?
Then you jumped over to VRM issue. OZZ is the go-2-guy on that one! But if your box is self-stopping, "under heavy load",
I would assume you've pushed your OC to far (duh) on one or more components, (1) and 2.) Very slim chance (IMHO) that the power supply (would have) had anything to do with it. Since you already upgraded and it's happened with the new PS it's fairly moot. ....if I understood you correctly....eh-smiley.gif

you've inspired me. I was done with the RAM, I'm at 1959 which a full 2 up from the rated-stock. But now I think I'll go for another tick, WHEN I get back from NY, I'll have ona them VRM HS's and I'll install that along with my Cooler Master Hyper 212+ and we shall see how high I can go. Of course by then the AMBIENT will have begun to rise too so..... The REAL hard-core push may have to wait untill fall....

Thnx that was what i try to do thumb.gif

never give up biggrin.gif

But seriously buying 2133 RAM when u have 1866 or even 1600 would be useless if u can oc it yourself at those speeds too and can save a couple of dollars/euro's thumb.gif

The thing is tho that NOT every RAM will get that speed i guess , they tested the RAM there so u are always sure that it will run 2133 or 2400, also i heard FX chips do not support native 2133 or 2400
i am not sure if that is right because i never tested it.

What i did was set the RAM profile to 2400 and get the same timings as they sell for 2400 and prestooo! it works.
At first i was done too because i could not be stable at any speed until now.

Also when i set it to 2400 my FSB gets to 257 so that can be that my chip likes that FSB more than the 251 i was running before OR my RAM likes this speed better.
