Seems like bad temps for a TR Ultra 120 Extreme - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Thread Starter 
i noticed that one of my rubber bands broke .. i think i'm gonna buy some zip-ties, but for now i just put another band on it

also, i bought an 80mm fan when i bought all my computer parts but i couldn't fit it in the case because of the thermalright ultra, so yesterday, i got an idea and i put the fan with a grill on top on the outside of the case ... i got it pointing down on the thermalright, but i'm not sure if it would be better to switch it around and have it as exhaust... what do you think?

well, i overclocking my cpu right now and so far i'm at 3.8ghz from 3.2ghz... i haven't really noticed any change in temps... the highest i have seen load is 50C which i got up to like 47C or 48C when i was at 3.2ghz..

whenever i boosted it up to 3.9ghz, orthos failed within like 2 seconds lol... i'm still at stock volts right now, should i try boosting them up a bit and see if that works?

---

also, at 3.2 running 1M on Super Pi took 42 seconds... now it only takes 35 seconds...

If you're up 600MHz from stock it's definitely time for a voltage bump.

okay, i bought some velcro zip-ties from walmart today so now i got rid of the rubber bands... i am also thinking of picking up some arctic silver 5 to see if i can get my temps a little lower....


i decided to go ahead and increase the voltage a bit, but i'm having a weird problem... if i change the voltage from auto to like 1.28v, when i save it and go back into bios it reads as like 1.24v but when i go into windows and open nvidia monitorview it shows 1.28v and cpu-z shows 1.24v unless i run orthos and then it goes down to 1.21v... what is going on here?

i tried changing from auto to 1.24v which is stock voltage and orthos fails because it reads 1.20v in bios and one time i got the BSOD... do you have to set the voltage higher than what u really want?

okay, i set it back down to auto and tested again and i noticed it does the same thing.... it reads 1.24v in bios but nvidia monitorview reads 1.3v and cpu-z go back and forth between 1.256 and 1.264v and when i run orthos it goes down to like 1.23v or so... i guess this is normal and i should set my bios setting to something higher than 1.3v to get a higher voltage than on auto...

check this out http://forums.extremeoverclocking.co...d.php?t=233029

this guy gets 4.42GHz on 1.45v with a pentium d 940 using a big typhoon...claims for it to be stable... it'd be sweet if i get that .. it doesn't saying anything about temps tho...

That's vdroop. It happens on a lot of motherboards as a precaution. You can do a pencil mod or a more permanent soldering mod to minimize or even eliminate the vdroop (difference from set values to idle values to load values) on your motherboard.

yeah, i found out about vdroop on google

I bought some Arctic Silver 5 and put it on...it doesn't seem like it did much...

I've been trying to get my overclock higher... I've been up to 4.1GHz but I can't seem to get it stable.. i tried increasing the voltage and I got as high as 1.375v bios setting but I read on some sites that it needs to go up to at least 1.4v to get stable once u get up to 4GHz... Is this safe to do? At 1.375v I idled at like 43-44C and loaded as high as 54C... I don't really wanna go too much higher on the temps, prolly as high as 58C... Should I try upping the voltage some more?
