Might have a golden 975 Chip, but I'm having heat troubles when I shouldn't - Page 4

post #31 of 43
In regards to previous post about AS5 there is absolutely nothing wrong with it at all. Its still a great TIM and probably always will be. Unless your into the metal based/solder like ones the difference between them is minimal. So sick of people bashing it on here because they don't know how to apply it. I strictly use it or shin etsu x23 both of which came out in the late 80s I'm not mistaken. And are still excellent TIM materials. Mounting pressure and application make the difference.

As for the Xiggy. Are you using the original clip? I use a 1283 and got a custom bracket made and sold through a user here on OCN that makes the heatsink mount vertical instead of horizontal. The hard mount bracket probably gets better clamping pressure and better pressure should help heat transfer better.

Also what fans are you using on there? for awhile I used 2x Slipsteams 1900rpms. Using push/pull I've noticed issues with extra noise on the pull fan. Currently using a Coolermaster R4 fan with a fan shroud in between and let the case fan do the pull work. Been thinking of looking for a high static pressure fan like the gentle typhoon 1400/1800 to mess with.

Usually have a low ambient though (keep the house at 65F) but the room is much cooler than that.

I've done both, it doesn't seem to matter which way I go about it as far as voltages go. The same clockspeed, same volts. Highest I can get the motherboard is around 240 FSB stable.

I am using the original clip, and I'm a little underwhelmed overall, but I don't know if that's the cause. At 1.425v (1.488v full load due to mobo), I peak at around 58~ celcius. Apparently I have a high leakage chip, because I used to run my old 940 at 3.6 and 1.52v, and it'd top out at 1.58 full load, around 60 celcius, same cooler setup.

I'm using the stock fan that came with the xiggy along with the same xiggy fan bought on the side. I don't know their specifications.

I've unfortunately a high ambient temperature, around 78 farenheit at all times at the least. I'm in an old victorian house with radiator heat, and we aren't able to control it so it's ungodly hot. Good thing heat's free: I have windows open most of the time, and the average outside temperature this time of year has got to be about 20 farenheit.

You have a good chip there for sure. I don't wanna steal your thunder or anything but with some cold outside air I got mine to boot at 4.7Ghz couple nights ago. I was able to do SuperPi runs at 4.6Ghz :-)

I would love to see this chip under water. At 4.5ghz with 1.52v, its no doubt temp limited. Get the temps under control and I would venture to say 4.6-4.7 could be ran with < 1.6v.

5ghz suicide run maybe? tongue.gif

That's amazing. I really think the higher the stock speed with these phenoms, the higher they'll overclock.

I managed to get 4.31 ghz at 1.475v prime95 stable for at least 2 hours. With the windows open, my full load temp was about 59 celcius. If they were closed I imagine it would be around 64. So, I just won't run prime95 and I'll keep these settings. No game will push it past 55 celcius anyway.

I set my ram to 1066 5 5 5 15 instead of 800 4 4 4 12, and my 3dmark11 score went up from about P6700 (at 4.3 ghz I might add) to like P6850. What do you guys think, is that a good score for my system? I'm currently running ram stress tests to make sure it's stable.

Yeah I'm going to do some more testing either tonight or tomorrow night if its cool outside again and see what else I can come up with. Only spent about 20 minutes with it last time.

And on your RAM, are you using DDR2? 1066 5-5-5-15 is DDR2 speed.

Yes, I've got 6 gigs of DDR2 OCZ ram. Apparently DDR3/DDR2 doesn't really matter in games, so I hear.

very impressive overclocking. DDR2 vs DDR3 doesn't change much on Deneb for gaming.

It doesn't affect your gaming much, no but you're still losing overal system performance. I recommend grabbing some low latency DDR3 like mine. Back when DDR3 first hit you could actually grab 1600Mhz and 1866Mhz CL6 DDR3, now that stuff is really really hard to find. My OCZ Reapers are 1333Mhz CL6-6-6-18 and with a little voltage increase they do 1500Mhz CL6-7-6-20.

unfortnunately his board is DDR2, which means in order to switch he would have to dump his board and ram. depending on his money situation it might not be doable
