Finally up and running

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I finished the rig on my signature, and I am pretty happy. I am at about 28-30 degrees under regular usage and 37-39 at load.

My question to everyone is what else you may suggest to make this better? I am on the way to start my research and OC, but I want to make sure the temperatures I am at right now are relatively normal.

The maximum board has been tempting me on the bios to auto tune it to 4.2 with the click of a button, but I am not sure I want to do that so readily. I need a game to test this bad boy, but besides the Witcher I can't really find anything that suits my fancy and can push my system to the limits.

Ha ha, thanks for the encouragement. I love enthusiasm. I think I might.

Run prime95 or IBT for an hour or two. Also configure the "auto shutoff" feature of your temp reader (coretemp has it). And set it at what you think is really high (tjmax is 98, so I put my personal max to 70)

Also I would read up on how to OC, the auto tune stuff usually over volts, which isn't a good thing.
