There are a couple of ways to attach a fan to cool VRM/Mofets.

You can ziptie it to the rear fan using the screw holes on both fans.

or if you water cooled zip tie them to the water line.

or double sided tape, any way you can, i have set them on my gpu, wedged them in

Hi guys,
I recently overclocked my FX 8350 to 4.8 GHZ at 1.493750 volts to the CPU. I just stressed tested it for 13 hours and the max got to 64 degrees Celsius! But it didn't seem to stay there too long because when I woke up it was at 52 Degrees Celsius. Is this an OK temperature? Should I downclock the CPU at all so I can achieve a cooler max? Thanks!

if that's the max core temp, then the recommended temp to keep within is 62C

However, the recommended temp to keep within for the socket is 72C

Personally, that's a bit warm for my liking. I don't like either temps getting over 60C

What kind of cooling are you using?

I am using a Corsair h100i watercooling. I am getting Noctua fans for it soon so that my lower temps.
post #2257 of 4095
was that temp the core or socket?

were the fans at max?

what is your ambient case temp?

You're sitting pretty, good sir. Assuming you've tested the volts (by the way, how are you getting that precise on the measurements?) to lowest stable I'd say you have a solid OC. For some more head room lap the 8350 if you haven't - I saw almost 10*C improvement on my (now replaced with custom) H100i at that clock by doing it from the improved mating

As long as you aren't BOINC/Fold/Mining with it those momentary spikes IME only come up during stressing. I take the 62*C as sacred but I bet it was just a split second spike and if no workers failed - job done!

Oops I meant to say thats the manual voltage I set in the BIOS. How should I test the volts? What software should I use? (Sorry I'm a noob and this my first time overclocking). Also what does improved mating mean? Ya I think you're probably right that it was a momenatary heat spike. Thanks!

Try HWInfo64 to monitor your volts. The reality is that it won't be accurate - nor will what you set voltage to on your motherboard. You need a high end multimeter to actually tell what voltage your CPU is getting. That said - the measurements you get from HWInfo64 at least are consistent so even if they aren't exactly true (same with all software monitoring) they are at least repeatable

About lapping ... The Integrated Heat Sink (the zinc-plated metal cover you see on top of the die of the CPU when you look at your chip) (IHS) on the 8350 is dome shaped. You won't get proper seating of the cooler to the CPU without making the top of the 8350 flat - this should be apparent by looking at the build-up of Thermal Interface Material (aka thermal paste) (TIM) on your chip when you remove your cooler - ideally it should be almost entirely pushed away from the mating surfaces. You lap your CPU by sanding it flat on a flat surface - post mid-century glass works fine as a surface to do this on. Start with 400 grit sand paper and you will see that the middle of the IHS is the first to sand through the zinc into the underlying copper. You use the 400 until the whole IHS is copper, then step up to higher grit papers like 800, 1200 and 2000. Eventually the IHS will be flat and you'll be able to see your reflection in it.


(what you see on the chip is a reflection of a white wall with a painting on it)
