I think I will just put the core clock back to normal until I get a cooler.
Thanks for all the help mate.

I wouldn't say you have to put the clock speed back to normal, though it IS the safest route. I remember having my 2.66 OCed to 3/3.2 before I got my CM 212. No matter what kind of cooler you have, you have to be smart about it- something I tend to NOT be. There is a lot of fiddling with voltages that needs to be done. I was going to link to an awesome guide that covers EVERYTHING (something like 10 pages long but an easy read), but for the life of me I cannot find it :/

If you have the Money then the Cosmos 2 is an excellent case.. We love our Troopers too.. It just comes down to what you are willing to spend and what you like better. thumb.gif

okay, 3 setups;
700
I'm hoping for the bottom one but I think it's maybe a little bit too complicated. Not in the least for mounting the rads but also for tubing.
The middle one is my second choice, mostly because it's easier and faster to install and it's also using the full potential of the 240mm radiators in push/pull.
And the top one is basically what I have now in my 650D except it adds the bottom 240 rad.

Thoughts?

I did it by just changing the multiplier in my BIOS to 42.
This is my first time overclocking and I was wondering if there is anything else I need to do?
I used hyper PI and coretemp to do a test on the temps and VID I got these results;
The temp sits around 33 when idle and the VID is 0.9707 when Idle.
Hyper PI Results:
1m PI Digits, normal priority on all 8 cores; took 14 seconds, VID reaches around 1.35 and the temp hit 59.
2m PI Digits, normal priority on all 8 cores; took 34 seconds, VID reaches around 1.36 and the temp hit 66
4m PI Digits, normal priority on all 8 cores; took 71 seconds, VID reaches around 1.36 and the temp hit 75
Guys is this good or bad? will I ever hit 75 degrees while playing games? or is that just because I did 4m PI Digits.
I am just using the stock CPU Cooler as I feel the case has adequate air flow through the 5 fans I have on it.
Help me guys as I am scared to play games until I know this is safe frown.gif
Do I need to change anything in the BIOS? Or was just changing the multiplier enough?
Hope someone can help me out!
Thanks in advance guys!!!!

Prime95 (I assume Hyper Pi too) will stress your CPU far more than any game.
If it's safe running a stress test overnight, it's safe for any video game.

If you want to lower temperatures some and prolong the life of your CPU, try notching down the voltage (use offset mode if you have it) slowly and seeing when you become unstable.
Bump it back up to a stable voltage and enjoy.

I was contemplating between self contained and a full water-loop.. I think I'll throw her on "Air" just to get her up and running for testing. I will eventually cross her over to a water-loop!!! Well, at least this is what I'm planing but you know how that can go. Either way, 'Congrads'. on the cross-over...
P.S.: I hear that warm-fuzzy feeling is a good feeling!!! thumb.gif

Yea, im not saying its bad, it does cool ok . but the noise, that's not too good. On the lowest setting it was quiet but i was getting 80 C plus on my q6600 at 3.5 Ghz, now im at 3.950 Ghz and its silent. the temps are much better

Oh and on the overclock,I really was hoping to get a nice round 4 Ghz out CPU but the volts are already at 1.6 and didn't want to push my luck any further.

So I just had a look a around and did a bit of research on the corsair CPU Coolers.

I have decided I am going to buy the Corsair h100 and use the push pull method.

Does anyone know if this will fit in the top of my storm trooper?

Also im buying a lot of 120mm fans so that I can put them in the side and down the bottom.

Its going to cost me about 270 AUD for 5 fans plus the h100.

Is it worth doing this?! Will I achieve a cool temperature?

I plan to have every fan pulling the air into the case, and the back and top pushing the hot air out! (Is it a bad idea to have the h100 up the top pushing outwards? should I make it pull cold air from outside of the case??)

Please help me guys!! Rep to everyone who helps smile.gif

Thanks guys!!
