Anyways, I ran a test program and set (I can actually set a manual and a offset at the same time. My manual setting was 1.140v and my offset is +.2, this was reading at 1.304v while running Intel Burn Test.
OC after delid:I run at 4.7 Ghz(4.5 for test)
CPU-Z validation of max OC:1.304v for the 4.5 Ghz test
My highest temperature readings were thus:
Core 0 = 76 degrees celsius
Core 1 = 85 degrees celsius
Core 2 = 83 degrees celsius
Core 3 = 78 degrees celsius
I have lapped my heatspreader on both sides using a lapping kit from FrozenCPU, which consisted of varying grits of paper up to 2500. I however did not lap the surface of my Corsair H100i waterblock surface. I just removed the paste and connected it using CLU inside and out.
Here is the picture of my delidded cpu again, now I know the criticism is spot on that it isn't the best application of clu, well, I actually broke my motherboard switching the chip, the cpu pins got bent, so after i took this picture, it sat on my shelf for a good two weeks before I got to install it. So I don't know if that's exactly how it looked before putting it together.
You can notice if you look around the CLU on the heatspreader you can see the copper coming through where it was lapped inside.
Only thing left is as someone on here suggested I'm going to someday get a power cable extension to get that cable so it can loop around behind. But I'm not gonna take it apart and do that until I get new fans for the inside. I'm trying to figure out what is the best route to take. I want to buy one 120 mm Delta fan so I can hook it up at low power and see how loud it is and it it's worth putting in and then I'll buy more if I like it, but I don't know what 120 mm's to replace. The exhaust fan on the back of the case is extremely weak, so that's a candidate, but then with that much power I should probably turn it around so it brings air in for the radiator above it. Then I'm thinking two delta fans to replace the native fans to the Corsair H100i, which brings me the fans on the Corsair H100i. I bought Corsair SP 120 performance edition fans for on top, I was told the H100i's come with fans were Corsair SP 120's, but the ones that came with the H100i can go extremely low, and much higher than the sp 120's I bought, the native fans go 1000-2500, and the SP 120's go about 2000, and they're on top, if they were the same the 120's on top should be going faster. What fans come with the H100i? I can't find this out.
And OMG, I should stick a Delta fan 120 mm above the 80 mm fan on my side panel. So 4 delta 120's at 40 bucks a piece. Only 160 for fans. Damn, this is not gonna happen for quite some time lol.
But I will buy one pretty soon so I can see if I like it. Any comments? What a Delta 120 sounds like on low power? I like when fans are loud, just not when I don't want them to be.
