With air cooling the case air flow is very important or it is just blowing hot air around inside the case. That case looks to be very restrictive.

Uhmm.

Who are you replying to?
Its better to use the quote thingy.

If you are talking about Stufi:
That case is actually pretty good IMO.


No we are talking about it, Stufi:
Can you show a picture of the fan you have blowing over the socket? Did you mod the case? The side panel on the rear side of the board is solid, right?

I took the fan from my previous CPU cooler, the 212 EVO, and yes the side panel is solid and I havent done any modifications to it so it could be better. About the CPU cooler; the first time I installed it last summer, i used too much thermal paste so I reinstalled it a bit later and used Arctic Silver and it cooled much better. I don't know if there is something wrong with it or my chip is just not the best for overclocking. Back when I bought the 212 Evo, I couldn't overclock it because it became unstable as soon as I put it to 4300MHz and adding more volts made it too hot. Something to note though is that the case is a bit dusty at the moment. I will clean it very soon once I get my new merchandise so I can move my hard drives to the 5.25 bay and remove the bottom hard drive cage to get better airflow. I will also add a two Noctua redux coolers to the front and move the current front Noctua to the back as exhaust. There is also a fan on the bottom.

This is the latest on stability front with 1.25v CPU/NB and 1.45v Vcore:


E: Oh, and back when I said the temp reached 68 degrees I was talking about socket temp. I dont usually look at core because its not a "real" temperature. It was also quite warm in the room, probably from all that testing biggrin.gif

The pictures of Stufi's case that I saw show the intake fans blowing against the hard drive cages, which are turned sideways. No airflow there. I didn't see a bottom fan. It looks like the case exhaust fan is doing all the work which means there is not much air flow and the flow is going from the bottom front to the top rear. That means that video card heat is also going there. Maybe that is why the socket is so hot.

Did you see my profile picture? It's old'ish but thats pretty much the way it is now.

Core is "real". Where did you get that information?
True, on idle the core temp is way of but on load it is actually pretty accurate. At least as far as software monitoring is accurate at all.

Did you try to set the ram manual? Freq. and timings?

Seems like you are gaining something.

Haha, there he is again: the goold ol' 212 cooler.
Surprised you even got to 4.3 with that one.

Well. You could Always try and do a re-mount to see if you get slightly better temps.
Although you are probably better of to compare your temps with someone with the same chip and cooler.

But, after all.
If you manage to cool the socket down some more with a mod to the side panel you will probably be able to take the chip to at least 1.475v with that cooler.

Your airflow setup looks okay IMO.

I meant core doesn't have a sensor so I do keep an eye on it but socket is always higher and it's reported by a sensor so I usually use that as reference to how much overclocking headroom I have.

Yes... And no. I have manually set the RAM frequency and I set DRAM voltage to 1.65v. I looked at the timings and it was just an overwhelming list of settings and I have no idea what they are so I left them at auto. I'll try to look for what values I should set them to. Haven't experienced any black screens or overclocking failed messages anymore though, it ended once I set NB/CPU volts back to 1.2 and the problem didnt return once raised it again to 1.25v.

I don't get the relation with Stufi's post and your reply...

Adviced him earlier to manually set the ram freq and timings.
He doesn't know what to do and said he will search for the proper data, which I adviced before also.

Good link, that's for sure.
But in his case it would be better to have a link with the proper timings of his ram set.

Normal IBT is a bit hotter than AVX IBT on my 8320e. Everyone is saying it's more strenuous, but is it really?
