So a little new fun fact I found, I'm not using an evo 212, I'm using the coolmaster tx-4, they look identical but have a slightly different mounting setup.
it came with the case some other hardware that was found in the trash.
gotta go into rig builder and fix that lol
I can do 4.6 with 1.425v but in prime when all cores are at 4.6 it gets to 62c so I haven't pushed it further, it should be fine when playing games for long periods, they don't get up to what prime does.
I was wondering would it be worth getting a cooler? if so which would yeild better cooling then what I have now? if so how much? I have a decent fan setup, it almost goes down to freezing if its idle and my fans are on high, not kidding either.
should I try for 4.7? I mean the ONLY time I touch anything like prime is to test my oc, so if its temps I'm worried about would it be better to test an intensive game for a few hours if the oc is stable otherwise?
I posted before what temps I get from games and its rarely above 50c after a good while, my gaming temps are about 10c less then what my prime temps are, so I'm not sure, I'm pretty happy with the OC so far, I wasn't expecting almost a full ghz without moving it off of 1.375v and I'm not even using up to the 1.44v the turbo boost settings used to boot up to 4.0. but I'm at 4.6 now with the heat wall and so much more voltage headroom~ Edited by Sadmoto - 12/26/13 at 11:31am
