The stock air cooler should be able to handle the voltage just fine, just watch the temps and create a custom fan curve.

Thanks, since it has 2 6 pin connectors, is the max power draw 225 watts or so?

Hey Vellinious
I pulled off the H100i block and cleaned it and the CPU with a qtip and 91% isopropyl alcohol and reapplied thermal paste. So far, so good. 4.5GHz at 1.119V @ 65C 100% load. Figured I'd try again since I was getting 62C max at 4,4GHz. Gonna stress test for another 10 minutes, though, its been running 10 minutes already. What do you think?

Yeah, that sounds about right. With 1 6-pin and 1 8-pin max power draw is 300W

By spec, when the 6 pin power connector only has 5 wires coming from the PSU, they'll only pull 75 watts each. However, most PSU manufacturers went away from using true 6 pin connections a long time ago, and instead use a 6 pin connector with all 6 wires, effectively making them the exact same thing as an 8 pin power connector, with 2 less wires....thus, they can pull up to 150 watts.

It works...trust me. = )

Maybe you just had a bad mount. Temps seem ok to me. What are you using to stress test? OCCT? AIDA64?
post #22706 of 26262
Alright thanks Vellinious, i'm in the middle of a League game so when i'm done I will give it a shot and report back.
post #22707 of 26262
AIDA64 and alcohol bathe :/ Had to drop to 1.117 to stay below 66C. Just hit the 10 minute mark and still 65C @ 100% load and BSOD....TODAY, lmao

Example time

This is what a true 6 pin looks like. 2 power wires, 3 grounds.



However, making 2 different power connections seems pretty foolish, so to cut costs and standardize the manufacturing process, most PSU manufacturers make what equates to a 6 + 2 pin...some are just 6 pins, but if there are 6 wires there, it's the same thing. They look like this. 8 pin / 6 + 2 / 6 pin.

my evga ftw+ 970's in sli.

i had 390's in crossfire but returned them for a refund after one of the cards vrm's melted.

so had my 970's for a bit and so far love them. run a lot cooler that's for sure and performance is near identical except stronger tessellation performance. they're great boosters too. boost to 1.48ghz all on their own. voltage holds them back from higher according to gpu-z.

Thanks for the explanation,

So if my 6 pins both support 150 Watts, does that mean that if I use one of them with the 2 extra pins plugged in it would be able to support more than the traditional 8 pin rating of 150?
