AMD Phenom II X3 700 Series OC Club - Page 558

post #5571 of 6432
Folks, I need some elp - my x3 720BE (stock... please, don't throw things at me) seem to be running very hot. ~50C, even higher when loaded. That's with stock cooling. And since i want to OC it a bit (nothing serious, maybe up to 3.1ghz) I'll go with an after-market cooler.

However, most of the tower coolers I like are too big, and not a single store has a tryout. I have a relatively thin Centurion 534 case - official specs say it's 21cm wide, but that's at the widest "ridge" part - the main tower is about 19,5-20cm. When you add the motherboard it leaves probably about 17-18cm free space. What's the best (and relatively cheap) cooler for the x3 720BE I can fit in there?

I've set my sights on several somewhat affordable and powerfull coolers, like the Akasa Nero (Nero S and Nero V2), Scythe Kama Cross and similar. Would anyone be kind enough to tell if I could fit them in such a thin case, and what would be the best solution, cooling-wise?

PS. I've searched through reviews, but none seem to address the problem with the thin case...

Change the case fans, not the cooler imho. They are the heavy workers for my experience.
I had centurion 5 and zalman 9500cnps + 8+12cm cooler master case fans. Now I use the stock cpu fan + akasa apache 12cm + amber 8cm case fans. I saw a big difference, zalman only helped to accumulate temperature.

have you tried to reseat your cpu cooler? sounds like its not installed correctly or no tim is applied....
have you tried if the temperatures drop if you let the case open? if that doesnt change the temperatures a lot you should reseat that cooler.

17-18 cm should be enough for most coolers, even a "Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme True Copper" is 132x64x161mm (LxBxH) and would fit in that case...
for a 3.1ghz oc every cooler should do since you can probably reduce the Vcore:O

50C loaded with 720's is nothing to be worried, should be kept under 60 imo for these chips now. 55C was limit for the 939 and am2 chips - for the longest, but these am3's can take a lil more.

and i said to myself (just neva posted) - that, that 2800nb is just impossible to be at stock. either the guy has the most rigged mothboard chipset/componments+ a golden chip, no way that thing is able to do 2.8nb@stock.

Hey guys, atm my CPU is at 3.4GHz stable with 1.375v, my goal is around 3.5 or 3.6GHz, but theres is only one thing stopping me, the VRM's on my Motherboard. My Mobo has only 4+1 Phase VRMs and it has no VRM cooling at all, which is why I haven't risked cranking up the volgate anymore, while running Prime, they are quite warm, no where near hot enough to burn my fingers or anything, just warm. Should I make the next bump to 1.400v?

i dont see the reason not to. 1.425 is still the safe stock voltage on these chips. dont worry about the vrm's. youd be surprised at just how much heat these things can take. i have a dual core clocked at 3.6 on a economic board like that. nothing big. go for it!

Yeah, but I figured that because I'm using a quad, it would output much more heat on the VRMs, for example, with my CPU at 3.6Ghz and 1.42v (X3), the VRMs are cooler to the touch than my CPU at 3.4GHz and 1.375v (X4).
