Cooling the sandy babe and more.

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
hey peeps. just got my 2500k to 5Ghz Stable (2 Hrs of Prime), but two things, well, three. My Vcore is at 1.52v, ive heard that this is the MAX stable 24/7 usage voltage, im not 100% happy as i'd like to be reassured stability and dergation wise, is there a setting to help compensate or am i stuck with this? (only voltage that would make it past 17 minutes of prime). secondly, my VCCIO is at 1.80000, is this a good frequency for a high overclock like mine, or should i put it down a touch? I know it should be between 1.10 and 1.20, so i opted for higher as im virtually pushing the chip too its limits. thirdly, Im running a coolermaster hyper 212 plus with dual fans at about 1700 rpm average, getting an idle temp off 33 degrees and at load 64-67 MAX, so basically i was considering getting a thermaltake 850i ProWater as a liquid cooling solution valued at 200 aussie dollars, Is it worth the switch? I know i ask alot cheers guys.

Download IBT and coretemp, do 20 runs of max memory on IBT and can you throw up a screen shot. I'm surprised you got those temps on that cooler tbh.

Same here...unless you're ambient temperature is incredibly low.

Yeah, I don't see how you are getting those temps on that cooler at those voltages... even with a golden chip it's unlikely...

Also, you're pushing through 1.52v I've seen people throwing 1.47 through for 5.1ghz on a water loop and they are getting 69c....

can you take some screen prints please for us
