The Thermalright Venomous X is a solid cooler, matching low end AIO's and is pretty close to the D14 if I remember correctly.

Set all other voltages to "normal" as specified in the bios, this includes PLL which should be 1.8v at stock.

I'd also recommend keeping temps at or around 70c max for 24/7 use, a bit higher is OK if you see big performance gains with a different combination of settings.

@Ferro10 That's a great ram kit. When were those made?

Tomorrow we get the Noctua NH-D15S so the problem of temperature we solved it
with 1.35 Vcore surely 4.4ghz are not stable I try to 4.3ghz
Then I lower the QPI / DRAM 1.30 and see if the system keeps

That is a pretty good kit. may be able to run them faster, or tighten timings a bit at a little lower speed to get them to run at less than 1.65v's

Ram voltage is a huge temperature overhead on the X58. Newer Intel chipsets have had the ram voltage moved out of the die, for the board to take care of. I was all about finding some 1.35 - 1.5 volt ram kits. When i switched over, and left every setting exactly the same. just was able to run much lower ram voltage. That dropped my temps by 5-7 degrees under load.

You sure the ambient temps were the same?

I have that 1.35v Crucial kit. It's decent but some of the secondary timings are noticeable when playing UT4

Damn,wasn't aware of this.This is the ram i'm using.

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226185

You think if i go for 1.5v ram i'll be able to lower qpi/vtt thus lowering much further the cpu temps,since now anything below 1.335 vtt i have to up vcore to maintain 4.3ghz?
post #7008 of 7965
the ambients may have varied a bit. but i did also go from 6 sticks to 3. that may have been a bigger contributor.

The secondary timings are quite tight, well compared to some other i have tested. Trfc is a bit high. Tfaw of 24 is great

You are good as it is.See if you can lower cpu vcore to 1.334-36v without changing anything and test.If not i would personally increase one scale qpi/vtt to 1.315v and lower a click or 2 cpu vcore just to run below Intel recommended specs.
