14C in Houston -> E6400 @ 4.0ghz on air (only 4 BNCH)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
we had a fat fat blue norther come thru.

so i opened my window and did some tinkering with my typical 24/7 3.6ghz rig ... was surprised that i hit a wall at 4.0-ish ...

temps were fine ... but for some reason i couldn't get it past 4.1 or so ... just cycled endless reboots; played with memory timings as i figured this was the culprit but ran out of time (wanted to play CS:S for at least an hour before crashing!). fun though ... took about two seconds off my superPI 1meg time:
....



so if i went to water or phase ... how would i best solve this bottleneck at 4.0 ghz?

probably the memory settings? maybe something related to northbridge or southbridge (which are at their default auto settings)?

++also ... look at the crazy cpu-z reading of 1.2 volts! funny. i've got it set at like 1.67 or so in the bios; asus tools shows the most accurate.

Might fiddle with some RAM timings and load some more voltage to your Northbridge. Same with your VDimm depending on how much you're putting to them.

Nice time there, i hope those 12v readings are in acurate because 9.30 v is very bad and will kill your stuff

So you sleep with window open?! I live in Houston too! and i know how cold it gets lol. 32 degree will definitely give boost to your overclock ability.

I'm waiting for January or February when we get those 20f-30f degrees nights and I'll be taking my rig outside and do some high OC'ing and benching.

The temps on my 660 @ 4.50ghz were 19c idle and 33c fully loaded on a 29f day. For you guys outside the U.S., that's 3 degress below freezing.

So will the lower temperatures allow the CPU to go farther on the same vcore? Or will it only help keep the temp down as the vcore is raised?

Well Mikey, last time I checked after I went for a #2, gold didn't come out.
It was brown but not shiny though.

Maybe next time
