New cooler, think I'm in love

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
So tonight I was toying with my OC and getting pissed that my SpinQ was only cooling so much, So I said screw it, I knew the local computer shop had 1 last APsallus90 Watercooler on the shelf as of a couple days ago. So I jump onto my motorcycle and tear off down to the shop.

Bought the last one he had "He forgot he still had it" I'm partly to blame cause I hid it..hehe So Return home, fuss over the poorly writen instructions in japanese (Still not amazing at japanese) and finally solved the riddle. Powered on...23c...Yummy my normal on SpinQ was 38c on boot. So this was welcomed.

Well, into the testing, a 3.9Ghz @ 1.44v. So far I'm getting 57c tops, let me make a correction, it just hit 59c, so I'm now going to apply now going to shutdown, clean the CPU apply more artic silver, and reseat the cooler as I think it did not have enough. Brb!

P.S. I think this is like the Corsair H90...Just about the same..Just...Japanese..haha

You want the absolute least amount of TIM possible. It's only intended to fill the micro scratches in the surfaces of the CPU and heatsink. More TIM is definitely bad as TIM is an insulator compared to metal-to-metal contact, which is the best.

Oh really? That might be my issue..haha I was always told a pea size amount in the middie. Always thought I had to much just kinda in there..lol

Think I got it just about perfect this time, 6th round of prime95 and still only bounced into 55c for a second, and back to 53-54c average.

I'm going back to my computer store tomorrow and picking up a Fan controller and a higher quality and faster 90mm fan.

Ok so I have it at 4.0Ghz again, I'm having stability issues though.

What I'm currently trying

I drop the multi to X19.5

Increase FSB to 206 giving me a 4.03Ghz

Set LLC to extreme

Increase core volts to 1.45v
Increase NB volts to 1.2v


What I don't see is a Volt for FSB, from what I read it shares with the CPU is that correct?

I was thinking of increasing the NB from the stock 2000mhz upto say 2300mhz. Would this help stabilize the OC?

Bump for professional advice.

Well, think I've just about got it.

Worked with the LLC and current managment, got her to stay at 1.46v and a 4.0Ghz OC is now holding nicely at 56c and spiked to 58c but that's not stuck around. Heck only core 1 and 4 hit 58c so that's not half bad.

I think once I get a better 90mm fan on it I can increase the cooling a good deal, atleast 2-5c. Will also add a new exhaust fan. Since my waterblock is hooked onto my exhaust panel in a push/pull format..haha

You're looking at the core temperature? I used to use Core Temp, but after some reading I found out that you don't look at the core temperature, only the CPU temperature. So in HWmonitor and in Speed Fan I looked at the "Temp 1" part, which is the CPU temperature. Looking at that I found out that I have a lot more overclocking head room in terms of heat.

Laugh at my "paint" magic. But it gets my point across...So watch the temp I circled?

So what's the difference? CPU temp VS core temp? I thought they would be the same. So higher core temp is ok, as long as the CPU temp stays within the 60c Max?
