fx8120 from a d14 to H80

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
today i decided to go with a h80 setup instead of my d14 and seem to have better results with my h80 on day 1. cpu idles lower and doesn't hit as high with the temps.

this is a little over 2 hour test on Y-Cruncher which seems to make any system i have crash within 30 minutes of a bad overclock and get my cpu hotter than prime95 anyway i use both this was just to show you my voltages and temps. I had someone say my chip is golden cause i have it stable at 1.332 at 4.4ghz. I am very happy with my gaming performance and this chip thus far. The temps were frustarting for a while, the chip is very sensative to heat.

Nice overclock. Your NB freq could be causing stability problems for you though. Stock is 2200.

the core temp is what that rate there cpu's at so not sure why cpu socket temp matters. anyway 62c is about where it was at socket is usually 10-12c higher the core.

In my experience with these two coolers, The D14 has always been better. Bought a couple H80's only to sell them later.

The H100 now is better.

yes that is what reviews say, but even so there are min. temp differneces. I also believe case flow matter as well as freeing up a lot of space inside my tower. all play factors

editing this post, i decided to switch back to the d14 one last time with a new combo. heres what i did

-i used the nactua thermal paste over as5 because reviews/performance show much better results with nactua's thermal paste
-i used the 2600rpm fans that came with my corsair h80 since that have more cfm and static pressure than the stock noctua fans(but corsair fans are insanely loud)
-i tested both coolers at the same frequencty using the same corsair fans on both for 2 hours running y-cruncher
-the winner was nactua d14 at 43c max load temp for 2 hours on y-cruncher
-the corsair h80 after 2 hours on y-cruncher hit 50c max load temp

7c cooler is a big difffernce i must have a really bad mount the first time or improperly applied the thermal paste.

besides the noise it looks much better with the corsair fans on it and than i added a cougar pwm 140mm fan for my exhaust where the corsair used to be mounted,
