Now I'm trying out a different approach. Using the 125 strap and then dropping the BCLK down to ~114 MHz. So far looking good at 4.8 and 1.344V on load (1.385 in BIOS) with medium LLC.
Not an original idea I know, I saw JediJaxrf using it during the folding challenge. Seems to be alot more stable or maybe it's just my particular chip likes it.

I'm considering replacing XSPC Rasa with Apogee HD cpu block. Also i read about superior mounting mechanism of Apogee HD block. You tried Raystorm and Apogee HD. What are your experiences on this issue?

I'm still undecided to be honest. The flow of the Raystorm is amazing, I actually had my pump undervolted to about 3300RPM when using this block as the water was literally swirling so fast in my tube res that it didn't look right (as if there were too much flow, if there is such a thing). What I don't like about the the Raystorm was the acrylic holddown plate and the guesswork involved with mounting pressure.

The Apogee HD solves all of the mounting issues, I too read what Martin wrote about it and bought it just for that reason. That said, the flow is noticeably lower and I'm running my pump at full speed again.

Now, here's the best part. I see no difference in temperatures between the two blocks. mad.gif I was expecting to see an improvement since the mounting system was so much better than the Raystorm. I saw no noticeable difference whatsoever.

I'm probably the last person who should be writing reviews on water cooling, I'm a novice and will just throw money at the problem until it's solved. That is why I have some Indigo Extreme coming in the mail. biggrin.gif

It's probably just operator error at this point, and I'm actually going to be posting a new thread on the liquid cooling forum here asking for some help. I suspect maybe my loop isn't completely bled.

if you dont like the raystorm acrylic holddown plate there is a aluminium one for it http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/xsrainalbr.html

I am new to Watercooling and just finished setting up my Loops. I use the Raystorm with the Alum. that is quoted above. I have just begun testing and am at a 4.7 with 1.384v on the core. Temps have not gone above 60 on any in the last 2 hours. During the first hour, one core hit 63c and another hit 62c, I then lowered the pump speed (I had it full blast, setting 5 on my Variable pump) to 3 or "in the middle" and during the last 2 hours no core ever went past 60c again. Right now the average is around 57c across all 6 cores and am on hour 4 of prime95 testing.

How is the ambient temperature important for the overclock stability the best shows another example. At 26.5 - 27 C for 5 ghz priming i reduced cpu vcore on load to 1.448 - 1.456 V ( in BIOS 1.46 V, LLC high ) with maximum core temp at 77 C and CPU at 60 C. Here is the picture:

That is some awesome cooling you have there. Any pics of the loop setup ?
