3930k First Time Overclock - Does this look OK? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Mine is way different because i'm running a custom water loop @ 4.5Ghrz. I'm using 1.32V @ 39.3c @ 70 degree Ambient Room Temp with a 30% load. 100% load is 44c 45c.
My Motherboard has so many defining controls available that you get really dialed in with the Current to the processor.
Asus Rampage 4 Extreme
I would voltage step the processor until you have a stable OC at the least amount of Volts as possible. Which will lead to lower temps and longer CPU life.
Here is a Video of my current setup so you can see my hardware.

Also i think your temps are a bit high but acceptable.
Try to reinstall the cooler and let it run on stock for 12 hours then let it run on a 100% load for 12hours and then do a OC to the CPU so the cooler seats properly.

I'll try your suggestions and I do appreciate it. Tomorrow I'm going to switch the rad fans to intake then go from there. What I have now is solid, but even at 4.4 GHz 1.35 vcore couldn't keep it stable so I'm not sure how much I can get it down. First thing I'm going to attempt is getting the temps down though for sure.

Applied IC7 and reseated... here's the temps are 5 minutes of prime.

Nice drop in temps. A few questions.
What TIM were you using before?
How did you clean the old stuff off?
How much of the new TIM did you use
and what method to spread it.

Sorry for all the questions but your results look really good and I'm going to re TIM and seat my cooler (Noctua NH-D14)
soon.

Thanks, Shawn

Thanks! Now my temps are staying the same and I've got the CPU up at 4.5ghz (from 4.3) with a lower voltage! I also realized I didn't use my PSU's supplied power cord which is a much thicker gauge the one i was using so I definitely had some power issues.

I was using arctic silver 5 and switched to IC Diamond 7. I took a microfiber cloth and put some alcohol on it (rung out so it's not dripping everywhere) and gently cleaned the CPU and heatsink until the as5 was completely removed. Then I used what IC recommends which is basically a pea sized dot on the center of the CPU. I'd say I used a little bit more than that to be safe because these are big CPUs and then let it spread naturally when I put the heatsink down. Get the heatsink on their nicely and secure two screws with just a turn or two and then you screw it on using a cross method slowly. I didn't go more than a turn at a time and let the heatsink really do the work of compressing the CPU evenly. Once the screws were bottomed out (specific to an H220, check your heatsink) I push down on it very slightly... maybe 5 pounds of pressure max.

Seems to have worked well so far and I'm really happy with the results.

Just a question do you think it was the different thermal paste or how you applied the block the first time which caused the higher temps ??
