2. How high is a high CPU temperatures. Is 70c at 100% load normal?
Thanks.

Probably 4GHz on stock volts.

& 70c is fine. Keep it under 80C for 24/7 purposes.

AI TWEAKER

By all Cores : 45
Internal PLL Overvolt: Dissabled
mem freq : 1600
Dram: auto
CPU offset : +
CPU : (1.270) .105 (first red setting!)
dram: (1.5) Auto
Vccio: (1.050) Auto
PCH : (1.050) Auto
Load Line Calibration: Auto
CPU Spread Spectrum: dissabled
This gives me 1.336v max with prime 95, 1.360v max with Boinc and certain games. Noctua D-14 keeps it around 58-63c under full load.
I've had it to 4.7 but it takes far more than 1.4v
4.6 hits as high as 1.4v under load so I stay at 4.5Ghz.
Suits me

^ this one works the best #edited the post to my settings

I get about ~ 1.35 not bad. <- under 100+% load

I bought an Arctic 7 Freezer Pro Rev 2 heatsink for the p8z68-v LX, and I'm finding that the heatsink's fan which if I'm not mistaken should be installed facing the memory chips, won't fit in the motherboard because the fan hits the two chip/dimm memory slots closest to the heatsink. I need to use all four memory slots (ie. 4 x 4 GB).

What do you guys use as heatsinks for the p8z68-v LX?

you can take off the heat spreaders on the ram btw. I had to do that to my 2 closest slots to my cpu

@Kyismaster

I was able to overclock successfully to 4.4 Ghz. Odd thing though is that for the first couple of hours the temperature at its highest was at 71 c at full load. However, after I installed 3DMark06 and ran it twice, closed the case, and did the test on IntelBurnTest again the temperature of my CPU shotup to 101 c momentarily. As you can imagine, I quickly stopped the test. Fortunately, it looks like the CPU survived that hot flash.

I took a close look at my memory sticks. There's no way I'm going to be able to remove the heat spreaders without using brute force and risk destroying the memory chips. There are no screws (unlike the old OCZ dimms I had), and it looks like the nice looking heat spreaders are glued on to the dimm sticks.

What do you use for your heatsink? What kind of dimms are you using? Thanks.

Thermal take frio.

Corsair Vengeance tall.

its easy to take off the spreaders, it just takes patience and voiding warranties tongue.gif

I only suggest to do this on 1600mhz < and below

its not worth it taking off 1833 > mhz above rams, because 1600mhz doesn't really need a heat spreader since the speed is almost native,

while 1833> maybe standard clock, its overclocked in a sense.

Where does your fan on the Thermaltake Frio heatsink face to in the motherboard? The Arctic Freezer fan manual show the fan facing the dimm chips. There's no way it'll fit that way and I'd rather not remove the warranty by removing the heat spreaders on those dimm chips (yet).

Would it make a difference if I installed the heatsink with the fan pointed some other direction instead of towards the dimm chips? Thanks.

I've overclocked successfully using the settings suggested in this thread. It works except that I'm having heat issues if I overclock over 4 Ghz.

In reviewing the MB manual, I note that the MB has a TPU switch and an XMP setting in the BIOS. Should I enable the TPU switch and select the XMP setting in the BIOS? The TPU switch reads like it only affects the onboard video (is that what they meant when they say GPU, ie. Graphics Processing Unit). My dimms are XMP ready. Should I select that setting in the BIOS?

If you are having heat issues over 4GHz then it can be 1 of 3 things:

1) Your CPU cooler is not seated correctly
2) Your CPU cooler isn't sufficient.
3) You are using way too much voltage. (Check CPU-Z while under load for a voltage measurement)

1. CPU cooler is seated correctly
2. Seems ok for 4.0 Ghz.
3. Running IntelBurnTest "Core Voltage" per CPU-Z is 1.368

Am I using the correct measure? Is 1.368 too high?

I have an Arctic 7 Freezer heatsink but I'm still trying to figure out how to best place it or even if I should use it. The dimms obstructs the heatsink's fan if I placed it according to the heatsink's manual which leaves me with 3 options:

1. move the fan higher on the heatsink.
2. face the fan and heatsink away from the dimm sockets
3. remove the heat spreaders on the dimms.

In option 1, the fan's cooling power won't be fully utilized on the heatsink. Is this ok? Kinda defeats the purpose of the fan/heatsink design, wouldn't you think so? In option 2, I don't know how this will affect the air flow in the case. Option 3 will void the warranty on the dimms. I'm leaning towards Option 2. That is rotate the fan/heatsink 180 degrees so that the fan will now face towards the rear of the case instead of facing the dimm sockets but I don't know if doing that means overheating the dimms. I'm wondering if rotating it 90 degrees instead will be better.
