i3930k Too warm? - Page 3

post #21 of 26
The H80 comes with pre applied Shin Etsu. some people were sounding a bit worried by the lack of TIM.

Hmm... the Scythe "S-FLEX™" S-FDB 120mm Quiet FAN - SFF21G seems to have quite a low cfm,no?

Yea - it did have a pre-applied decent amount of TIM on there. I imagine it'll do the same job as what I might put on manually.

I examined the H80 fan config and turns out the guy who assembled the pc had the fans pushing air away from each other. *sigh* Once I fixed that by making it proper exhaust, my cpu temp dropped by 6-7 degrees and my mobo by 2-3. Aiming to replace both fans with Gentle Typhoons 1850rpm next week and will report if that makes a further difference. I'm hoping for a cpu temp drop of another 3-5 degrees to 37-38 C with the same noise output. This is @ 4.290 ghz and 1.31v (Next Level auto oc). I hope the short story that is this thread helps at least a couple peeps out there.

Cheers.

Speed step and C1E are perfectly okay to have on.

Do not use manual voltage

Use offset voltage. Find the voltage that locks in a stable OC when under load.

Also reseat the H80. My idle temps are in the 80's F, I don't want to convert it for you right now to C.

Full load temps for me on Medium on the H80 is 135-150F so well within thermal limits. Still I am not going to convert to C right now. No time to do that.

Also I have fired my H80 now that my XSPC raystorm block and fix it kit have been ordered from FrozenCPU.

Your PLL Over voltage needs to be enabled or Offset voltage will not scale properly if at all

Unless you are shooting for higher than 4.4-4.5ghz Load Line Calibration can be left at auto on most boards.

The stock H80 fans move plenty of air. No need to upgrade the fans on the H80 honestly if you are running the correct fan configuration.

Lastly the H80 isnt beefy enough for the I7-SDB-E chips in my opinion past 4.4ghz. Maybe now because Im not running a furnace in my house and its quite chilly here in north GA during the winter.

I think you are going to need a true water block or H100 or bad ass big huge Air Cooler to OC higher with reliable temps.

Also food for thought... Corsair uses water and engine coolant mixture so 1. its deadly toxic to pets or you if you drink it. 2. Its 100% conductive so it will blow your system if it leaks. Yeah they will replace crap under warranty but why even have to do he hassle.

Since my last post I switched out the H80 fans with Gentle Typhoons and there was an immediate difference. Even leaving the fan control speeds and settings the cpu temp has dropped 3-4 degrees Celsius at idle (so 36-39 degrees Celsius oc'd to 4.29 ghz @ 1.31V). I also switched out the Corsair RAM to the low profile model in quad channel arrangement. Even with these improvements I might lower the overclock to 4.0 or so, but at any rate, all is well with the world. Thanks for everyone's prior comments and assistance. Have a great New Year peeps.
