Hi, I just joined this forum because of this thread.
I just built my first PC for about 5 years with a 550BE, Asus M4A785TD-V EVO and Kingston HyperX-DDR1600. I did overclock a bit on my last computer but am now very much a beginner with my new rig.
I have unlocked the other 2 cores and they seem stable at stock speeds but they create a lot of heat, I have sent off for an Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 but I think I am still gonna struggle with temps if I try to overclock the 4 cores.
I have experimented a little with the 2 cores but am held back until my new cooler arrives and have found a weird anomaly I think....I am passing 100 runs of LinX at 18x200 with 1.375 vcore, 1.21875 vddnb but 17x200 won't pass at the same settings, I find this weird! lol
As far as coolers go, should I have got the Hyper 212 Plus? I was concerned that it wouldn't fit in my CM 335 Elite but after more research it seems it would...only just. Can anyone confirm this please?
