What CPU?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Building a rig soon with a more powerful phase unit for 24/7 use ( NL11F + quiet fans )

Problem I'm having is what CPU to run under it, the whole point is for enhanced overclocks, the kind of overs you just can't run on water.

Running a 2500k currently at 5.5Ghz with 1.53v and EVAP loads at -30c during Intel Burn Test.

No point in running Ivt Bridge as the heat transfer is rubbish and I'm bored with Sany bridge.

I can't afford a 2011 system so that leaves me with a few options..

1. A Phenom 2, overclocked my old 1075T to 4.8Ghz daily on a my first ever unit ( 220w max rated and was a bit naff ) and would love another bash.
2. An FX chip, could hit 6Ghz+ on these daily nuder phase but power consumption will be pure evil at that clock
3. An older Intel CPU, a socket 1336 or 1156 CPU, how's x58 on phase?

Want something with a bit of ooomph and a fun factor thumb.gif

An i3 540 can be very fun to OC, specially because they got 2 cores:D

A 970,980x,990x under phase should be great. As for IVY you should get some great clocks under cold,

But you need to lap it and de lid to to really achieve anything

Not under phase.

De-lidding Ivy for Phase is suicide, unless you get 100% air tight seal around the IHS you'll kill the chip very quickly.

Thinking that x58 is the way to go.

Yes it is. Make sure to get a RIIIE or a x58-OC.
