i7 950 overclock temps help please

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I haven't messed with my overclock in awhile but i did recently. I can't recall temps in my old case.


Currently my case has two top mounted exhaust fans, a rear exhaust

front 140mm fan and a fan in my hard drive bay tilted towards gpu's.


the heatsink doesn't receieve much air aside from the air the noiseblocker XLP pulls in.


the idle temps are
0 - 46
1 - 45
2 - 44
3 - 45


under load they rise to about 75c-81c but i mean, when I play games it never goes above 70c.

This is with a 1.27 vcore 175 x 23 frequency.


Are these temps safe or should I adjust my cooling? I know they are a little high for idle but in all honesty the intel stock cooler would be the same temps or even higher.. but in games it does not go above 70c, bf3 is like 65c

these temps are fine... the i7 950 is a very warm chip to be begin with, even with water it was hard to tame. what cooler are you currently using?

you can find ultra 120's, megatrons and the venomous x here in the market place for around 40 bucks give or take.
strap a nice 38mm fan to it and you'll be in business.

Hyper 212+ I used to get better temps for CPU in my cm 690 II case, probably due to all the mesh. Switch has little front mesh for cool Air to get intake.

I want a new cooler but can't decide.. I like silver arrow archon but it seems massive, h100 is loud on full blast, sb+e is huge and d14 is ugly. The phanteks nicenter too.

I think I'd go with archon but not sure.. if these temp look safe I'm keeping the hyper for a month or so
