4.5Ghz @ 1.3v (board reports it at 1.264 though), 88C Max Core on Load, LLC3 (1 is strongest, and 5 is off). This is an offset OC, so it's actually a Turbo OC, +.066v. Also I could not get the RAM to OC stably during WoW, so I have dropped it back to stock 1600.
Overall I am still very happy with my XB.
Prime95 stress test on my 3570k at 4.8GHz and 1.31v temps avg 80C and never went above 82C with my Corsair H50 with Corsair SP120 PEs in push/pull, though man did they spin up
Also XB seemed to drop my Vapor-X 7950 temps by ~2 degrees on core and VRMs during Heaven 4.0 loop.
All in all a very happy camper with my new case. Can't wait to start modding it! You've all officially got me wanting to go full water cooling ... well, at least CPU and GPU. Only problem is with the Vapor-X ... it's so long that it limits my rad potential for the front panel ... I'm either going to have to go with a 35mm rad and some thin fans on the inside, or a 25mm rad and regular 25mm fans.
If I have good 25mm fans on the outside, then a 35mm rad on the inside and some 12mm fans after it, will I get enough flow through the rad to make it worthwhile or should I look into a thinner rad and better fans? So far the only rads I've found that might work for me are the Swiftech H220 AIO and then expand it to GPU, or the Black Ice Pro II. I really want to go with the XSPC Raystorm starter kit, but it would mean using 12mm-15mm fans on the pull side. I literally only have about 52mm to work with on the inside of the case, so I'm trying to figure out the best bang for the buck. The plan is to go 240 rad front, 120 rad back ... would say, 2 of these
give me enough pull to make it work on the front if I use the Corsair SP120 PEs on the 120mm rad on the back?Edited by spaniardunited - 6/16/13 at 1:43pm
