Ummmm..no. Voltage is fine for for 5.2GHz. You obviously aren't in the 5GHz club
post #6092 of 8112
Morning all,
Got my 8120 over the weekend, previous system was getting mega old because I was using work PCs so yeah I had a watercooled core 2 duo with 8800 GTX.

Anyway, was recommended the freezer 7 pro rev 2 heatsink and fan (since I was a bit out of touch with what's about) but I'm finding really bad load temperatures. I had to modify the heatsink a bit to fit with my memory but my idle is anything from 18 to 35 degrees c, but as soon as I hit prime 95 its 60 straight away, then slow climb past 70...when I stop it.

I didn't want my first post to be asking for help so sorry for that. I just need to know of the heatsink is suitable, it is getting warm/hot) to start with as I'm not sure whether to try putting some arctic silver on, or to put stock cooler on....or upgrade.

I set voltage to 1.3v as I thought that might be it.

This is what needed doing to the freezer pro.....I don't think they'll take it back somehow, thankfully it was cheaaaap!

It's a shame my waterblock won't fit it, well I haven't looked yet actually.

It won't fit at all..
The heatsync isn't really suitable I don't think. Well not for overclocking.. It should be okay for stock though am I correct?
Also nice mod-job tongue.gif
Surely you could have cut out less though?

I think I can go higher

Nice to see the Phanteks going to good use! What kind of temps does it bring?

Yeah I was about 99% on it not fitting, but I hadn't even thought about it till I was on the train this morning.

Cheers for the mod comment, yeah I could have cut less off but I wanted a decent amount of clearance for getting my ram in and out without going at an angle.

Hope someone can verify whether or not this heatsink is not enough for this CPU. Is the stock one really bad? I'm don't particularly want to keep swapping but maybe if I compare it with the stock it'll help.

I have a hard time believing 5ghz is stable on air. What is the prime95 temp after even an hour?

I am on another forum with FX 6100. Validation is just showdown. Stable OC is real deal.

well that fan on it looks weak. I would suggest add a fan to each side. Some decent flow 120mm fans will help cut the temps. Otherwise go with a well known heatsink, Cooler master 212 is a decent budget choice. Otherwise refer to the link below to help you choose a new heatsink/fan combo.

The Fx processors are toasty esp when you overvolt and overclock. It takes some serious cooling to keep them in respectable ranges when overclocking. Honestly with other processors you can slap on a decent heatsink and get the most outta it via overclock. With the Fx you can slap a decent heatsink on and still be limited via overclock due to thermals. Under a niffty watercooling setup is what it takes to get your full potential overclock.

I will be under full water here soon, with a 540 radiator, gpu blocks, and water block. When ever pile-driver comes out. Im done with air cooling. (im currently under water for cpu only antec 920)

cheers duncan,
yeah I am not pleased with that heatsink to say the least, I haven't even started overclocking yet!!!

I've just stuck the stock heatsink and fan on and am getting 43 degrees C with prime95 under stock settings....albeit with an earache!!

I think I am going to look into getting a waterblock for this, it seems silly that I have some nice watercooling gear that is now sitting in a box gathering dust!

Will going into the late 70 degrees have damaged my cpu? I hope not!!

Thanks again Duncan, let the waterblock shopping begin biggrin.gif

yes the late 70c is too much your more in the very low 60c area
