Phenom II 560BE at 2.8 ghz x2 or 2.2 ghz x4? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I have the same CPU and even at quad, overclocked to 3.4 GHz, on stock cooling, I only just started pushing 61 C at full load. Dual at 3.6 GHz doesn't even come close, topping out at 52 C at full load.

I started out with this cheapo case and power supply, which got my build going. I should have a 212 in about a week, at which time I will do some cable management. I keep it at 2.6 x3 right now with 1.10v to keep it RIGHT AT 62c under load. It is ridiculous.

It seems to have decent airflow though. It has a fan in the side, and a fan in the back. I think the mobo is mounted a little too close to the case IMO. I tried the fans all different ways, and both exhausting is the coolest way I can run this thing, which seemed weird to me. I had the side fan in and the rear fan out, but it ran hotter. Both in, ran even hotter. Both out, drastically cooler.

I don't know, I can't even run it at stock speeds, it will peg 70c QUICK in p95. I was getting BSOD's and hardware health shutdowns (when set to 75c!) all the time when anyone else was using it. It is starting to tick me off, and I want to get it sorted out quick so I can sell my laptop and use it to buy a nice case for it.
