Finnaly hit 4.2GHz but now I what to go higher

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I have been an AMD user for a long long time now, since Socket 754 and I finally jumped ship. Here are results from just a days worth of playing around. This is my first attempt foray into Intel overclocking, other than my brief stint with C2Q and the good ole FSB.



But Now I want to higher, and I will probably need a good cooler?

I would love a Hydro Cooler like this Crosair http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181015

but my rear fan output is cut for an 80mm, and I cannot find a Hydro that will fit.

Any recommendations on a good air cooler that could possibly let me hit 4.6GHz? I am guessing the 5GHz territory is best left for water cooling?

What case do you have? Chances are if it's only a 80mm rear exhaust it's older and may not fit some of the better air coolers.

Looking into the hyper 212+ evo though, should get you to 4.4-4.6ghz without too much trouble - or so I've seen.

Its a pretty old school Lian Li PC-6070A (revived this case from a pretty bad MOD job done 6-7 years ago)




see how the rear exhaust fan is only an 80mm, the mounting holes and rear grill are only fit for 80mm

makes me sad as I wanted to go into water.

You can grab those mounting kits to convert your 80mm to 120mm, just make sure your fan is of good quality and seal off any leakage of airflow and you should be golden

then maybe mount your exhaust fan on the outside to mitigate and loss of exhaust flow

I have always found niche items from Xoxide lol, Im sure there are more legit items for that solution but this is just for the general concept.

Mount fans on both sides, but for the 80mm fan use some longer bolts, just make sure you have proper clearance to avoid puncturing your radiator or fan

You will need THIS COOLER or THIS COOLER. Both of them outperform an H100. There isn't any air coolers out there better than these. A Hyper 212 may get you to go a bit higher than where youre at, but then thats it and then you'll want o go higher. Your choices are basically buy either of the two coolers I mentioned or build a custom water loop.

Also, take a look at these two threads. You dont need a rear fan.

Do you have any 120mm fans laying around. I had an old koolance wcing case which is just a modded lian-li. On my old case a 120mm fan will fit between the i/o and side of case where the original 80mm fan was so I modded it by making a cutout there for a 120mm.

Check if a 120mm will fit.

Jesus Christ those are some massive heatsinks. They really preform better than the Hydro series? because that mounting bracket that was linked looks like it will work, so I take it the H60, and even the H100 is not enough to go to 5.0GHz.

What if I delid?

CPU's are not created equally tongue.gif

Lots of coolers perform better than the Hydro Series, the main selling point of the hydro series was the good cooling for it being a low profile cooler
