Overclocking with Z68 Fatal1ty - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Those temps were the max I got.

Im sure the fan is screwed in a tight as possible.

Method of applying thermal paste, well lets see, basically I added a pea size, pushed the heatsink down and check to see if there was enough, it seemed like there wasnt so I added bit more, but after I had screwed in the d14 (but realised had the brackets upside down) took off the d14 off and it seemed i had put too much paste so i started to remove it redface.gif So its quite possible that the thermal paste is causing inconsistency with temps rolleyes.gif

I seem to have it stable at max 67C on the hottest core at 4.5Ghz.

I plan to get the 7970 in a few weeks time, i'll do all the checks and reseat the d14 alternatively I'll try the Khuler 920 which I bought aswell as it was on sale.

It very easily could be inconsistency in thickness of the paste. @4.5 Ghz I'm getting 70 max on my cores when running ibt (I do this only to check temps not stability) 67 is pretty good for that oc, not sure what your voltage is.

Sorry I didn't have a chance to upload bios settings last night, I will when I have a chance or I will pm them directly to you.

Clean off the thermal paste and re-apply.

I used the dual-line method. Temps are hitting 69@4.8

So do you put the paste on the cooler or cpu. I put it on the cpu.

And the thermal paste i got with the noctua d14 was very thick and wouldnt budge too easily.

I place my paste on the CPU.

In my personal experience the thermal paste included with the noctua is rubbish. I used it for a couple days and then switched to MX-4. Afterward my temps went down by 5-7 degrees. Now there are likely multiple factors that contributed to the decrease(breaking in the compound, ambient temp, lower pll voltage) but you could easily get a few degrees off using a different paste as other users have had similar experiences.

A major factor when looking at temps is your ambient room temp. Without knowing your and the people's ambient with whom you are comparing, the comparison needs to be taken with a significant margin of error. For reference my ambient room temp is about 22.2C. So if you were to compare your temps at 4.5 to mine, test your ambient temp, and then stress test using IBT standard. thumb.gif

My ambient temperature is around 20C usually.

I have some arctic cooling ( i think) paste from 5 years ago lying around, still in original packaging. I've ordered MX-2 but MX-4 (i checked after I paid for mx-2) is the same price.

I'll see how the MX-2 goes and maybe i'll get a gentle typhoon fan to add to the d14.

But back to the original question. Is it wise to use presets. I used the 4.8ghz preset, the temps were pretty high temps but stable. Also cpu voltage was on auto. So is this safe, to have cpu voltage at auto?

I would advise against it. It will give your cpu more voltage than it needs, thus creating those temps. By doing this you run the risk of decreasing component life span.

CPU-z, as I mention in original post, reports 1.44v but in actual fact its higher right?

So whats the absolute max I should be going for. I'd like 4.8 but doesnt seem to work out.

I'll add some new thermal paste and put the first fan on the d14 full, and get to overclocking.
