Got it... Guys, check this out, yet another mest up twist in the mysteries of the e4400...
What I want you to notice here is the Nvidia CPU monitoring software. Notice the graph. See where it drops? Thats what the average temp was for about 2 hrs, 50-51-52-53-54-55c.
55c is what you see before the drop, then suddenly, (when I randomly got on to check up on orthos) it drops to 46-47-48c. This is shown in the pic. I couldnt save in ms paint forever, I tried it like 8-9 times.
Then the temps got back up to 54-55-56 full load on orthos and I was able to properly use mspaint.
Any guesses as to what caused this wierd temp change? It lasted for about 10 minutes and orthos kept running all through it.
what do you guys think of this oc? I know it is a bit hot, but I will be using C1E and other heat safety precautions enabled in BIOS. THis is the absolute lowest vcore I could run. One notch lower and it craps out after 7hrs of orthos.
So what do you guys think about it?
Also, what should I do to overclock my RAM?
Here it is now...
ooohh, 56-57c, thats a bit toasty... NOOOOO I don't want to back down from 3.0!!!!
Is there ANYthing else I can do to lower temps? (besides get a/c)
