I know it isn't made with the same vrms quality as the extreme6 and up are.

My case is a HAF932 with good airflow and my heatsink is a Noctua D14. Normally 2 hours of gaming nightly is all it will see with the occasional long Saturday if my wife takes our kids somewhere but thats rare.

In case noone can see over the wall smile.gif I asked a question earlier

Ok, got my Extreme4 and 3570K installed. At 4Ghz vcore goes to like 1.288. All I changed was the multiplier. There is a fixed and offset voltage. Also I've heard lowering PLL a little will make it run cooler. I'd like to get 4.5Ghz out of it. I came from an ASrock board with Phenom II @ 4Ghz which ran great for two years so I have no experience with Intel. The only thing I have going for me is I know my way around the ASrock BIOS basic features but the CPU is all different. I also loaded the XMP profile 1 for 1866 which matches my 1866 Ares timing. Used internet update to go to BIOS 2.50.

What are the basic settings to control voltage? On my AMD I set it to 1.xx and it stayed there with some increase under load from LLC. I can't seem to lock this one at say 1.75 and make it not go over 1.80 for instance. When I set it to a fixed voltage of 1.75 it never drops to 1.10 or anything according to CPUz. Is this normal?

If in Offset mode and you use it for gaming a couple hours a week (or a day), then its no problem.
If its Fixed mode, then I wouldn't recommend going above 1.4v for 24/7 (even if you have good airflow). And honestly, such a question can't be answered as straight forward as you might think, since there are sooo many variables between each user/mobo.
To have a piece of mind. You can check VRM & MOSFET temps using a cheap thermal gun, if they are below 70c, then all is good thumb.gif

@ Yankee495
You need to set vcore to Offset mode, set that value to +0.02v (or close to it) and test for stability with Prime95.
Vcore will drop when idling at around 1.0v and go up under load to 1.26v-1.30v.
Never let vcore go above 1.5v unless you have Phase or LN2 cooling

im taking one of the clc's i posted with 2 pumps/ removing one , cooling the gpu with the one that is left and adding a chipset block in the loop.
this card can use the included gpu bracket to mount the clc.
Sorry for the confusion.

My vcore hit 1.31 and I have that under control.

I'm at 4.3 with offset -0.040, PLL 1.726.

Hits 65-68c at 1.256 under prime. Bumped to 4.5 at these settings for test...no go. Is a bit cool in here. Temps will run 70c when I warm up. I used to be able to judge room temp by my AMD idle temp. Room temp goes up 5F so will CPU. It is about 64f in here now.

Someone said lower CPU PLL to 1.709 or lower to reduce temp. I have a fat sink on it.

Running like a dream. Would like to wiggle in between 4.5 and 70c with 1.95 vcore. Is that possible? I know that is a dumb question, but is it common I mean.

The sink is a Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer 120mm mounted with a Xigmatek ACK-U01 Crossbar Bracket and TX-2 TIM. The sink in the picture is new and used for fitting & pictures. The one in the computer does not have the plastic still on it.

Computer is also naked. Temps will not rise much put together because it has two top 140's blowing up, two front 140's blowing in, and a back 120 blowing out. Ventilated like a school bus going down the hi-way with the windows open!

To have a piece of mind. You can check VRM & MOSFET temps using a cheap thermal gun, if they are below 70c, then all is good thumb.gif

Just shooting the heatsink is ok and the hottest part below 70? I did that after 30 minutes of small ffts with the side fan off the hottest part of any of the heatsinks got up to 80 degrees C with the coolest parts getting up to about 40. I don't think it would ever hit that temp in a gaming situation right?
