Thermal question & memory

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Evening,

I just got my rig put together and ran prim 95 for about 40 minutes i reached a maximum of 61 C and it fluctuated between that and 57 C. Is this good for my cooler? Or do i need to reapply my thermal paste? (pea method)

2nd question, my ram is supposed to work at 1866 Mhz and should be supported by my MOBO. I have tried quite a few things to get it to clock properly, the auto overclock (which it will set the ram at 17XX something but will fail at least one core in prime95 ( cpu is clocked to 4.3) I have inputted the timings manually and it still is unstable, any ideas?

(with the cpu at stock clocks ram is stable @ 1600mhz)

The options in the bios of this MOBO are crazy i have never had so many things able to change, its pretty intimidating.

Apologies I am pretty fresh to overclocking.

You want to set the Mobo bios options to Manual - then you can input the stock settings for you CPU and start to overclock from there. You're probably getting more voltage than needed at present, and ASUS boards usually set their LLC to extreme when the BIOS is set to Auto. I'd download HWinfo64 - as this will show you your CPU & CPU/NB VIDs which is their stock voltage. Here: www.hwinfo.com/download.php

Once you've set the voltage to stock manually. Your temps will most likely lower also.
