yea erm about that they ether have more cash than sense , or little cash and no sense. ive always had hot cpu's
intel pentium d 3.4 95w max clock 4.3
amd a10 6800k 125w ish max clock 6.3
fx 9370 cough 220w , too scared to try

Since the Pentium d socket 775 ive had issues with nb usually way way to high along with CPU, amd a10 my problems jumped back to the cpu temps only due to not being able to afford a decent nb board. With this fx 9370 i seem to have issues with this 970 chip-set keeping it cool under stock speeds so im hardly going to try and get more out of it. My 2year old h100 seems to be doing the job "just". i would probs recon from my cool temps idle of 51 deg i could get close to near 5.0ghz at them temps of 57deg (65 full load eek which is my biggest concern) if i did attempt a clock i would be wary of pushing the full load button due to the above 57 deg throttle. this CPU will be safe up until 95 deg but at them temps running it will reduce life greatly increasing stress to components and along with the throttle at 57+

the only thing i can think off is to bypass the throttle in the bios and just hope the cpu is cooled enough but thats taking away my safety net which i dont want right now as if my pump /fans fails. it will save my cpu biggrin.gif along with the auto cooling feature it produces. theres living life on the edge and then theres living life peering over edge and really im already crossing that line if i ever even think of disabling this in bios

im quietly confident chucking more £ at cooling would do wonders. i should due to throttle enabled be ok to auto clock this up to what ever it hits im hoping 5.0ghz as it will just throttle it if its struggling with the heat. would i ever disable noooooooooo not for a long time will i need to do that are you nuts. lets say i was donated one the board alone would leave me in hardship for weeks ;P let alone cpu im happy at 8x 4.4 nty
