Coolermaster geminII S524

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ordered this cooler for an itx rig:

GeminII S524

I know its far from the the best, but I have two questions:

About how far can I overclock an average i5 2500k on it? Case airflow is quite good, ambient temps 20c. My old silver arrow can push it to 4.8GHz and not break 70c.

It pushes air down, which I guess might help cool the mobo. But how does that air escape the case? I have one 230mm front panel fan intake, one 120mm fan above the mobo as intake, and one 140mm fan at the rear (just about inline with where the cpu coolers fan will be) as exhaust. I can't quite picture how the warm air is going to escape...

Thanks thumb.gif

Should add the mobo is horizontal, like on a test bench. It's in a bitfenix prodigy case.

alot of people pick this style cooler for smaller case's/sff. i will give you alot more cooling over a stock cooler with more oc headroom. in a itx case i doubt your going to see 4.8,maybe 4.5. but that depends on voltage and case airflow. which case do you have?

Bitfenix prodigy case. I'd be more than happy if it could reach 4.5 on it, I chose coolermaster ic tc. The case can fit taller coolers, just chose this one because it was available, cheap and apparently very quiet.
