Looks like fixed.
Is there any tool that will record multi over long lime so I can put Prime95 for 12h and check after that did multi dropped at any point?

Glad you got it sorted out! Number 1 are chokes, 2 (under the heatsink) are mosfets, all part of VRM.

There is a stress test called OCCT that will do similar tests, but you can log EVERYTHING. If you use the AVX compatible linpacks you should produce about the same heat/stress as P95. Check it out here OCCT

edit: read this post if you want a brief over of VRM thanks wickedout

@spoonium
Thanks for info about RealTemp. Will use

@inedenimadam
Thanks for the link, good to know. Will try OCCT.

Also I found these in my stash. Was thinking about sticking these small heat sinks to chokes.

I got 8 of them. Will probably stick a line of them on chokes and then rest of them just add where there is space.
I will test as well maybe one of them is hotter than other in which case will stick 2 heat sink on hottest chokes.
Is that good idea?

And here just want to share the fan on top of VRM, will probably secure it somehow.
The only problem is that now it runs on 12V and is quite loud. So I hope that after I put heat sinks I can put the fan on 5V and make it less noisy.


/e: One more idea. Will set all setting to default and run Prime95 (as i know it does overheat), will try to see if it happened on stock speed as well.

Those will do some good, in tandem with a fan they will work wonders. I don't suppose your ram would allow you to rotate your heat sink?

I was able to fiddle an old 60mm AMD stock fan between my CPU cooler and the VRM modules, it now sits directly on top of the heatspreader. I've fixed it with zip ties to the heat pipes of my Macho cooler, and it fits surprisingly well there. It must be a slim fan though, a regular 25mm thick one wouldn't have fit.
I also had to volt mod it to 7V because it was so loud, and I would've even preferred 5V, but that wasn't providing enough cooling anymore, so I had to settle for 7.

I've now ordered a Xilence slim fan, which had pretty good reviews and only cost around 2.50€, but haven't come around installing it yet, as I would need to remove the cooler from my CPU for that and so far I've simply been too lazy to do that (again). rolleyes.gif
Should work better and quieter though.

Your solution with extra heat spreaders on the chokes might work very well too, but I think they wouldn't fit under my fan.

If you open up RealTemp and right mouse click on it, a menu will pop up where you can select the Set Log File Location option. You will be able to choose whatever directory you want to save the log file to, including a directory on a network.

I don't really want to put fan on the side as a heatsink on MOSFET's has ribs that are parallel with air flow now. On the side it wont do any good.
I will open my PC tomorrow and test heat on chokes. Will figure out best way to stick those sinks.
I do have stock Intel fan from CPU but its kinda big. But will try anyway.

Really good ideas guys.... Thanks

Is it possible that coz my High Performance power scheme my idle is bit higher than .950V?
Should I really set power scheme to balanced? Is there any other reason apart from saving electricity?

@spoonium
Thanks for tip, I actually have Z68 not Z77 but it does make sense.
Where do I find VRM heatspreader? What is that?

/e: VRM must be nr 2?

You should set it to balanced, theres really no reason to run it 4.5 24/7 unless your folding

Thanks for advice. I actually did earlier today. Have it on balanced now and it looks ok.
I was scared that I might loose some performance coz I like my PC at full potential but after bit of research and testing with RealTemp log in games and apps I noticed its not necessary.
The only thing that concerns me is that even with multi 16 my vcore is still 1.016V.
It probably doesn't make any difference but I bought mine CPU March 2012. Can there be any difference in how high they run based on edition?
I will try tomorrow with the offset you said before, but I will need some help please.

An idle vcore of 1.016 is ok its not going to cause harm but your able to test lower idle vcores by decreasing the offset
