Prime temps with 4.5 @ 1.31v max is 63c. And some of the cores don't break 60c. About to see what more I can get out of this chip.
Sounds good. Thinking if I ever want to hit 4.5 ill have to delid myself and get some more/better TIM. Just havent felt like devoting the time to it. And im still kinda leery about it, would prefer to have a back-up chip just in case but im not shelling full price out for another 3570k, lol. Dosnt look like they'll be on sale any time soon either.
Anyways decided ill probably get 3 of the bitfenix specter pro 200mm fans for top exhaust/front intake and a slew of rosewill hyperboreas for side intake/rear exhaust, might even replace the tc14pe's fans with them, since they have better flow and roughly twice(2.76mmH20) the static pressure they might actually help cool the cpu better. Have considered the B-Gears B-Blaster fans too, since they boast nearly thrice the static pressure of the stock fans at 3.5mmH20, but they are currently out of stock at my preferred retailer.
The PWM Spectre Pro 140's are nice too with pressure matching the rosewills and an extra 30CFM to boot, but they are also OOS at both retailers i usually use.
Which sucks, had intended on getting the two fans i narrowed things down to from Amazon since they do refunds no questions asked, could test them all, see what was best and send the other stuff back.Edited by Garzhad - 10/26/13 at 10:18pm
