Find an Antec 920 for cheap somewhere or pick up a Corsair H80. If it's really only a few degrees off a H100 then I think you will find it quite pleasing. I know I love my H100. Shaved 4-6c off my NH-D14.




Don't use a game for testing overclocks. Use Intel Burn Test. Much more stress on the CPU and RAM.

For example. My setup shows high temp of 71c in IBT on Max burn but in games shows only 55c. Now you said you saw 90c+ playing GTA4 so add at least 10c for the IBT runs.

Look into using IBT to test your overclock. You won't need to guess if it's stable anymore, it will just crash instead.
thx for the suggestion but no go on the 902. love my p183

but ya, i'll look into the h80. hopefully it's better than the d14 or silver arrow.

correction for everyone, at stock running prime it hit max 68C.

i think 78C was with 1.35V at 4.0? don't remember now...

is 68C prime load good?

Quite excellent, actually! It looks like dropping your voltage back a ton did the trick. I was about to suggest the same thing, but it looks like 3 pages of consensus have already done the trick. And is that on Blend?

maybe i wasn't clear. it's 68C running prime on stock. not at 4.0 @ 1.35 T__T

and yes, i'm running blend on stock. ><

wondering if my stock was a good temp or if i needed to reapply.

Oh. I see how that clarifies what you're saying now. That seems about typical for full load temps; I was playing with an i5-760 yesterday, and it was hitting around 70C across the cores with a dose of LinX. A stock hyperthreading 860 shouldn't be much further off than that. 78C at load while overclocked seems about right as well. I run with a slightly lower voltage (1.3125V) and with liquid cooling, but my ambient temperatures are fairly high, leaving me with a full load temp of high 70s, low 80s, depending on the time of day.

what's your ambient? i just noticed that you have the same cpu. any suggestions on how to OC this thing?

i'm a total klutz with this and i want to hit 4.0 on it

Your temps do seem kind of high. What TIM are you using?

the stuff that came with the hyper 212+

i couldn't justify spending $10+ on a different TIM when I could use that money to buy a better cooler.
