just make sure you have the
push/pull config on your H50!
Hmm I'd love to get to 3.8, especially on 1.4 volts. I am using a push-pull config, with the stock rear exhaust case fan and the fan that came with the H50. And I don't think the crashes are caused my temperature. I just ran 210*17.5 (3.675ghz) at 1.425 volts and it was holding under 50 degrees. I left it alone for about 2 hours and when I came back my computer had restarted. I know it didn't overheat because i have CoreTemp set to Sleep the computer if it hits 55.
@K10: I'd lower the reference clock like you say, but then I'd be slowing down my ram and it doesn't like to hold 7-8-7-24 at the full 1600mhz it's rated for, so I was wanting to keep it at 1400 with the 210 reference clock and keep the 7-8-7-24 timings.
And I don't think I did a very good job with the heatsink. Still being at home for break, all I had to clean off the old stuff was 70% rubbing alcohol, q-tips, and a coffee filter. Will see if I can get some acetone and some arctic silver when I get back to school.Edited by purduepilot - 1/7/10 at 10:46pm
