Prescott Chip overclockers what is your best Air cooling temp?

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
Hello,

starting this thread because I'm about to give up on lowering the temperture of my prescott chip. Overclocked from 2.4 to 3.33ghz, vcore 1.38v, stable. BUt the temp cannot go below 45 at 100% load. Always hovering around 50-55...

This thread is all obout AIR COOLING

First I use pccooler hsf temp 50-55, than I changed to CM Vortex TX temp still the same at 100% load... waste of money..

Right now I'm still think whether should I buy another cooler..

Guys what is your BEST air cooling temp at 100% load for overclocked prescott chip?? What cooler you use? Please share thanks.

Get a Tuniq tower of a BT coupled with some AS5.

Those CPU's do run hot though. So dont worry to much.

Air cooling is very limited. Its very dependent on room temperature.
