IDK whether or not they will help get it lower. But they should help it from getting higher once both of my GPUs are under load and raising the ambient temp in the case. Right now there is only 1 installed, I'm ordering the 2nd next week, and it also isn't under load.

Yeaahh, you should probably trust RealTemp's info more. Hmmm, hopefully the additional fans can drop temps by at least 5 degrees.
Granted, high 70's in Prime isn't too bad but I kinda like prime to be below 70 lol. Once the fans come in, you can experiment with airflow of the entire case to see which gives you the best results.

The most important thing right now is having a stable OC since your temps aren't bad. If the C14 stops cutting it, you could always get a Hyper 212+ wink.gif

I assume this would be considered stable? It's actually ran for ~17.5 hours, I reset Realtemp about an hour into it to get rid of my idle temps.

attachment.php?attachmentid=223138&stc=1&d=1312571979

I do like that all temps seem to be close together unlike a lot of 2600's I've seen. But now I need to work on getting the temps down.

For one, I got my replacement fan from Noctua yesterday and I need to switch out my old one (It was causing vibrations at full speed so my C14 fans are actually only spinning at 750 rpm instead of 1250). So that alone might lower my temps a bit. Plus I intend to add an 8th and 9th fan to my case. 1 in the bottom and 1 at the end of my gpus.

Then I might look into ways to reduce my core voltage without losing stability.

Core 3 seems to be smoking some really bad stuff but aside that, those temps look fine for the C14 (Though there are better air coolers out there). I'm fairly confident now that you might be able to knock off a considerable amount of heat once you install the working fan. Idk how much the case fans will help without knowing how the overall airflow in the case is tongue.gif lol. But If done right, you should see considerable drops in ambient case temps which should affect CPU temps.

it still sucks that you need 1.320v for 4.5 though frown.gif Since you know the OC is stable, you could see just how low you can drop the vcore is you raise LLC, etc.

Best of luck mate!

There aren't any better C style air coolers available. I chose the C style specifically for this mobo. However, it's also only running at 750 rpm instead of 1250 rpm. Once I get it back to 1250 that "should" knock off at least 5 degrees from what I've heard in the Noctua thread.

Thanks!

I think I can get the vcore down some. If not, oh well. Worst case I'll bolt a box fan in place of my side panel if I don't like my temps. biggrin.gif

But I don't think it will come to that.

I think I'm back in business. biggrin.gif

All I did was replace my C14 fan and throttle the rpms back up to 1250. I wasn't expecting a 10 degree difference! I'm not even going to mess with the volts now. These temps are fine with me. I'll let it run 12 hours or so and post it up in the sandy stable thread.

Just in case anyone was curious about the new temps since I throttled my C14 back to full speed, here is what I got after a 12 hour stress on my C14:

I am very impressed with the temps. Especially considering I see some 2600k rigs on water cooling with similar clocks/volts running at the same temps or hotter!

The C14 has proven itself to me. biggrin.gif
