OC, temps, H50 cooling and more questions.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

I've had an i7 2600k for a long time, so yesterday I decided to break the warranty and OC it a little to 4.0 ghz. Only changing multiplier and turbo wattage.

Some of my specs:
i7 2600k @ 4.0 ghz
P67 motherboard
H50 cooler, with stock fan.

I have some questions though.
1) My multiplier used to drop when stressed, I changed the turbo wattage to 115 long term,. 130 short term, and it seems to have fixed the problem, but with increased temps.
Am I supposed to be required to do this?

2) My temps are 72 degrees Celsius when stressed maximum (Intel burn test, 10 rounds)
Are this normal with a H50 cooler and 2600K?

3) I've been thinking about "upgrading" my cooler with MX-4 thermal, and push/pull with 3000 RPM or 1850 RPM typhoons...
Do you guys think 3000 RPM would be too loud?
Would changing the thermal compound decrease the temps (and if so by how much)
Would replacing the fan decrease the temps? (If so by how much)
When I order the fans, what should I order besides them (Cables, screws etc.)

4) My long term plans are to OC it to 4.5 ghz.
Am I ready to do this, with current setup (and temps)?
How much hotter is it going to be, e.g. at 1.3 volts?
Do I need to change anything besides: Multiplier, wattage, and volts?

Thanks in advance, more questions are probably going to follow later on.

Thermal paste max can drop drop.temps maybe 2c, push pull maybe another 2c, auto may be giving you more voltage than you need. As for 4.5 it will depend on voltage needed for that id say with your current cooler you will not be hitting 4.5 safely temp.wise. multiplier and voltage should be enough for 4.5 without changing much else except maybe llc

What about with thermal change and push/pull?
Do you have any tips for lowering the temps?
What about the other questions?

Thanks for replying though ;-)

If I wanna get a new cooler then.

A: I would probably buy the best of the following: H60, H70, H80i because they almost cost the same in my country. And the H80i is the best right?

B: I would not buy the typhoons then.

How much cooler would a H80 be than a H50 with push/pull typhoon?

Quite a bit.
