You said that you guess its over 100C, did you have any temp monitoring running- or is that literally a guess? If you are adjusting settings and working to OC your computer, download a temp monitor. YOull really be able to keep an eye on your temps easily with it in your system tray. Itll come in handy if you start stress testing as well. Coretemp, Realtemp, both work very well. What Im getting at is that without knowing what temp you were at, you dont really know that temp is what caused your PC to shutdown- its just a guess. You could literally guess that it was anything, that doesnt mean thats what caused the crash. See what you come up with after manually setting your voltages, and watch your temps.
4.0/4.2 is quite an overclock on your CPU though. Even if you had to settle at 3.5, thats still quite an increase over stock. I think temp is going to be your biggest issue. On my i7 920, I couldnt get to 4ghz with my Freezer 7 Pro, temps were just getting out of hand before making it there. Even with this H60, Im getting 71C (hyperthreading off) at 4ghz. Youve got to keep in mind you are taking a 2.66ghz CPU and trying to run it at 4ghz, thats a pretty massive OC. Temps will be quite a bit higher.Edited by RX7-2nr - 7/6/12 at 11:10pm
