my 2nd OC.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hello, i just finished overclocking my computer. i havnt run any tests yet but it seems to be stable so far. i will do prime95 and check cpu temp and all that after i post.

here is my cpuz reportz. please check it and see if i can make changes. i think my system is running too hot, so what would be another option to make it cooler, but still fast. MBM is saying 44C on CPU right now in idle... which sounds like HOT to me. i am using a stock fan and the case is open. i have a buttload of 80mm fans but i am thiinkng of how i can rig them to cool this cpu a lil more.

For cooling I'd change from your stock. 44 Idle is pretty hot, it'll get 50-60 range on load. I mean you could try lapping your stock heat sink but thats not going to do much I don't think and you'll probably find it to be a waste of your time and fingers .

I'd invest in any deacent aftermarket cooler and lap it and use some as5 with it.

$$ is sort of a problem for me right now. I have About 15 80mm fans i cut out from old PSUs while i was at work. I can probably rig them up on a different power (not main PCs power) and some how make a wall of fans. and use that as a case door instead of a regular case door. You think that would decrease temp? or would it be better to change stock fan with a high load 80mm. right now im running prime95 and mbm5. i seem to be stabled out. i droped down the multiplier again because prime95 froze up. so im at 52C on cpu and 39C case.
