amd phenom x6 1055T extremely high temperature - Page 3

post #21 of 79
Don't worry I forgot, Phenoms don't have an internal northbridge.

Northbridge is the chipset on the top left of the board near VRMs with heatsink on its own, it controls how fast data is sent across the bus. For Phenoms this gives a very nice boost. Basically before overclocking post here if you are unsure on anything and we will explain whats what and what affects thing and all the safe voltages to get you started.

In terms of a cooler, the EVO is probably the best low priced cooler, it may not cool amazingly as you are hoping but over the stock cooler it'll help by a lot. Your chip is 125W so it will get toasty.

Dual fans do help as long as you have the right airflow. Provided you have exhaust at the rear and top and a good fan in the front it'll be fine.

The trick is to get as much cool air in from the front for your CPU fans to drag it through and exhaust it out its rear. You will need to get another fan unfortunately frown.gif those there are the cheap but noisy but powerful options, or the PWM or quiet expensive options.

Heres a couple you could look at which are fairly cheap:
Arctic Cooling F12 PWM (74CFM quiet)
Xigmatek XAF series (90CFM, note you won't be able to use this on the EVO though)
Coolermaster Sickleflow (69CFM loud unless you have fan controller)
Coolermaster Blade master (decent fan)
Scythe Slipstream (loud at full speed but amazing)


Also the MX-2 is a good TIM, I have it and it does the job smile.gif remember theres only 1-2C difference between all paste, I only recommend the MX-2 because it contains no conductive material that could otherwise damage the CPU. Also its so easy to use, not thick and works instantly (most have a set in time, so you'd have to wait until many uses before you see a temperature change).

So MX-2 is my choice purely because of those reasons.

Okay, the only fan on your list the shop im ordering from has, is the Sickie Flow. I dont have any fan controller. I would prefer to order from this shop because it has free shipment and its cheaper or same price as other.

Do I attach the fan on the cooler?

Also, do I need to buy more cords for the fans?

Hang on better question, does your board support fan Xpert? Look in your ASUS manual to see if it controls 3-pin fans and the maximum ampage of each header.

The reason I am mentioning this is because you may be able to buy two fans with a cable splitter and them off one header to control the fans. If you don't know what I mean I can post a picture of my setup smile.gif

So then you can run the fans at the lowest RPM and then control it so it ramps up when the CPU hits a certain temperature.

My case has 7 fans and only one 4-pin PWM, so my front two are controlled off one 3-pin header and the top two are run off another. My CPU fans are 4-pin PWM controlled so that has no problem.

If you board supports that its a nice way of having an onboard fan controller without needing to get all 4-pin PWM fans or a manual fan controller.

Even with a high flow case,my 1090T still touches 48-50C under load.
Yes it also disabled the function to see the CPu temp
only Cpu socket temp can be read , and im not sure if it increases in temp that much.

Im stil clocking it as a x4 after im satisfied with my clock i wil see what i can do as a x6

I have no idea what you are talking about mike, But I have no fan controll yet on any of my current fans.

I dont think I have the manual here but I can check

The 212 has a 3-4 pin adapter, does that mean I can use both?

I just stole a 120 fan from the school, and it used the last 3 pin slot I had. Beside that I have another 4 pin left, and that's all. I also have a lot of places with many pins which I don't use.

I have 4 fans in my case now, but place enough for 2 more. Can I get power for them some way?

Also, are you absolutely sure I will have place for the evo in my case? It seems quite big

EDIT: I think I have 3 fans blowing out, and only one sucking in. Is that a problem? I beleive the fan at the top blow air into the case, but I dont feel much from it at all when I hold my hand over it.

EDIT2: A tube with thermal pasta is included with the cooler, do I need another one? 10 USD for artic

You could try it out, so one of your fans is powered by 3-pin header which you insert onto your motherboard yeah? Go into the BIOS and navigate to "Power" and you will see Chassis Fan Xpert. Enable it and make sure its on "Silent mode".

If you fans spins lower on reboot you'll know that your motherboard can control your 3-pin fan without needing any adapter or fan controller.

Basically what I am getting at is that some ASUS boards will allow you to control the fans speed even if the fan is only a 3-pin version, thus eliminating the need for an adapter or any fan control.

Try this first, because if this is the case you'll be able to use whatever fan you want on it for controlling it (aka less noise, then ramp up the speed when things get toasty).

You'll need a fan splitter, look on eBay they usually have them for dirt cheap and the wire is the lowest quality which usually handles up to 5.0A which is ample for 2 fans. Don't get one yet I will take a peek to see what your board supports.

Rear and top fans should be exhaust, front and side should be intake. You want a positive airflow, meaning more intake than exhaust. If you do want to do some overclock I suggest getting good quality fans for intakes. The brands you want to look for are:
Coolermaster
Scythe
Xigmatek
Arctic Cooling
Gentle Tychoon
Yate Loon

Make sure you purchase a fan with 50CFM+, the higher the CFM the more fresh air is being sucked in.

Don't go out purchasing lots of stuff, because unfortunately overclocking requires well planned out stuff smile.gif

The thermal paste that comes with the EVO is Coolermasters own thermal compound, its decent but it won't drop your temperatures instantly. Its gloopy so if you do want to save money on thermal paste make sure you have some gloves and say a piece of card, some thermal pastes are very sticky and can get very messy.

Your case is the Coolermaster Storm Scout right? Well it says its around 200mm thick, the EVO is only 160mm tall and its exactly the same height as my current cooler. My case is only 190mm wide.

If you're concerned get some measuring tape and measure it up from the CPU chip up.

Hmm, will I need extra fans now in addition to the extra cpu fan? Also the shop don't say wether they are intake or outtake, can I change that?

Fan splitter is for using two fans on one pin thing(3pin/4pin), right?

I also think Im gonna get more RAM as I have only 4. How is RAM compitable with each other? Im quite sure I have Corsair XMS3 8GB 1600Mhz DDR3 which I can get exact same of, but cpu-z shows :
NB frequency: 2327-2329 MHz and DRAM frequency: 620-621 MHz

EDIT:: Yeah I have 1600, still wonder about the compitability though

It says that core 0 can go to 16.5x, wile the restc can go to 14. HT multiplier is max 10x and CPU NB is max 35x. Does that have anything to say? With turbo core all can go to 16.5x

This is what they look like: http://www2.multithread.co.uk/linitx.com/products/3pin_Fan_Splitter_Cable_main_product.jpg

So your fan cable can go onto the cable itself. Then you just plug the single end into the motherboard. I just checked your motherboards manual, completely fine to run two fans off one header, supports up to 2.0A.

Case fans can be installed intake or exhaust. You'll know the direction it has arrows on the fans casing. Or the side the sticks on is the direction the air is blown smile.gif

To find out what RAM you have reboot and type Del to get into the BIOS, it should tell you the information of the RAM there smile.gif

All DDR3 RAM is compatible with your board, just make sure they are the same models you purchase.

Choose whatever fan you like, just make sure it has good airflow for example >50CFM. If its under 50CFM it probably isn't strong enough.

Right just looked at your case. That front case fan is good and so is the rear, you may as well buy another 140mm fan for the top? There should be one space available. Also have you any side fans? You can install two 120mm fans there.

For your CPU cooler, you could keep the fan that comes with it and see how it does before getting another fan for it.

You don't have to get the splitter to run two off one header, the only reason I am suggesting it is so you don't have to deal with the constant high noise of the fans when they're on.

Please look at my EDIT too:: Yeah I have 1600, still wonder about the compitability though (like 1333 with 1600)

It says that core 0 can go to 16.5x, wile the restc can go to 14. HT multiplier is max 10x and CPU NB is max 35x. Does that have anything to say? With turbo core all can go to 16.5x.


the fan I just installed has 57 CFM. Its artic f12 pro. I installed it on the side, but It seem to be supposed to go only one direction because the thing I put the screws in(it called that right? screws?) is on the back.

Arctic F12. Runs at 74 CFM http://www.hardwareoverclock.com/Luefter/Arctic_F12_Pro_PWM-006.jpg
This one you are on about?: http://www.quietpc.com/images/products/ac-f12protc-large.jpg

If its the second link install that on the rear and use the rear fan for a side fan smile.gif

Also your RAM, make sure its exactly the same model, brand and CAS timings. You'll see on the RAM it should say something like 9-9-9-24 or on the stick it should say CL9 or something similar. Make sure its exactly the same model and install it in the same colour slot for dual channel configuration.

Also don't worry about the core, CPUNB and HT settings just yet, thats for overclocking smile.gif
