Custom loop high temps.... Need some help... - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
I will post once I get the new fans,

one last question are fan controllers necessary? or just a good idea?
post #12 of 19
I think you are just clocked and volted too high man. I don't think those fans are going to make as much as a difference as dropping down to 4.4 or 4.2 and lowering your voltage and you aren't de-lidded so the combination of the silicon lottery and no de-lid could just mean you can't get 4.6 at 1.29v at good temps?

So today I installed 2 Typhoon AP15's on my rad.. OC'd using the Asus AI suite III to 4.6 again and then ran an Intel burn test for 10 minutes at max.
Highetst temp reached on cores 0 & 1 94 degrees, core 2 91 and core 3 89....

Will these be ok? as i have heard that the burn test is one of the more stressful benchmarks..... i wont be running full load 24/7 and my gaming is 2-4 hours a night max... Battlefield 3 and Skyrim...

Last question is there a major differnance speed wise between a 4.2 - 4.6? would it be better to just roll back to a 4.2 ?

Thanks

While I use Burn Test as a quicker way of testing stability I use Prime95 small FFT to give me an idea of max temps. After saying that the only time I hit the same temps as those generated by Prime95 is when I'm rendering and then only for brief spells of time. Gaming max temps are normally way under the Prime95 temps. What temps do you hit with Prime95?

I'd also now start looking at overclocking in the EFI/BIOS and seeing if you can reduce voltages. You're unlikely to notice a difference between 4.6 and 4.2 in the real world.

So i chose the FFT in prime and so far my temps havent peaked over 80 degrees. Why are they so much higher in the Burn Test???

The little I know about it is that Intel uses the same technology for their own testing particularly on x64 systems. I also know that I can do 50 passes successfully yet have the same settings fail in minutes when rendering using Adobe Premiere Elements so it's not a 100% reliable method of testing stability but usually picks up errors quicker than Prime95.

Cool didnt know that.

So far after almost 1.5 hours temps no higher then 80
I think i need to find a guide to do bios overclocking on Asus maximus VI bios.... so much info in there lol
maybe i can drop my volts etc and stay at the 4.6ghz
post #18 of 19
why do you need such a high clock for day to day use I don't get it?

Because I want it lol....

Actually my end game is to make a hackintosh again... so I want it as stable as possible because i will be doing encoding in Final cut X as well as some other processor intensive applications.... if at the end of the day i have to scale it back then so be it... But if I can get it stable... why not?
