Wire management.... WOW... How do these numbers look? *@4GHz now*

post #1 of 13

*See most recent reply for 4GHz numbers*****

So my case doesn't support much wire management, so I didn't bother at first thinking I'd deal with it after I got it OC'd. Well I ran into an overheating problem.

I'm currently running at 3.9GHz and testing prime, my temps are changing between 47-48C according to real temp. I tried these settings before and my temps went up to 53 and I had to shut off the test for fear burning up my cpu. So by moving the wires to the outside of the case and away from all the fans I dropped my temps ~5C!!

CPU-Z is showing my Core Voltage(I guess thats vcore?) at 1.184
Core Speed is 3917.2

Everest is showing Chipset at 35C and PWM at 34C

Prime been running for 35 minutes

Everest shows CPU Core at 1.18V

Still to early to say it's stable, but I thought the vcore for an e8400 was 1.36max? I'm still pretty far off from that and 4GHz was my goal...

Maybe I'm not looking at vcore tho.

cou z will show vcore. but nice temp drop btw

You know 55c isn't really that high. Once you hit the 70's you should lay off a bit.

My friends Q6600 is running 62c on max load without a hitch.

And improving airflow in the rocketfish (already a problem with limited fans) is crucial especially when you overclock.

Nice! Getting all of those nasty cables away from air flow really helps! Grats

50C aint gonna burn any CPU.

Well... when i got rid of the wires on top of my vid card temps dropped by so much .

So is core voltage on cpu-z vcore, I didn't expect to have it semi-stable at this low of vcore.

Thanks I was really shocked by how much moving wires improved my temps!

Yes the max for that chip is 1.36vcore.To be safe seen this chip don't like high vcore. You can bump up the nb too. It will help stable your oc. You are ok just try not to pass 60c to be on the safe side. The thermal specs for the e8400 is 72.4°C

So I reached 4GHz, prime 95 has only run for 45 minutes so far.
Real Temp showing
49/49 with a max of 50/50

CPU-Z showing
1.216 Core Voltage
Core Speed 4005.5 MHz
Multiplier x9.0
Bus Speed 445.0
Rated FSB 1780

Chipset 36C (Everest)
PWM 32C (Everrest)

RAM
5-5-5-15 2T
DRAM Frequency 445 MHz Guess that means its speed is 890?
FSB: DRAM 1:1

Thats all the useful info I can think of

Questions:
1) On prime 95 what is the best option for tortue testing? (Small FFT's, In-place large FFTs, Blend)
2) How long of test should I use on prime 95? (1hr, 2hr, 3hr, 4hr, more?)
3)Should I be concerned with my temps? (I'm using an ocz vendetta 2 atm, however my TRUE with a scythe ultra 2000 rpm will be here in a few days that I could install)
4) My goal was 4GHz, should I stick with 4GHz or try to push it a little bit farther?
5) Should I try to improve my RAM clocks/timing? I'm using 2.2V atm to make it stable.

6) Thanks OCN! Hopefully I can contribute now that I've (almost)finished an OC.

real temp showing 54/54 now.... Should I now be worried for 24/7 use?
