Give up on the 945 and get the 965, it's available and under $200.
I can't bear to see you suffer like this!
LOL- It all good!
"Good things come to those whom wait" my Friend.
I thought about it, but the 945 C3 is a 95w now! There's also a 95w C2 version of the 945. but I think we all know what to expect out of the C3's.
Plus, I don't mind cranking the HT Bus up to hit 4Ghz. Shoot I got my 810 up to THIS
The 95w CPU's idle temps are like 17-19*C on my 120 x 120mm Rad. (In push/pull) water system...
I could crank the Volts up to 1.625+ and still only run at about 48-52*c Full Load temps. BUT, I don't like my level of comfort at that point.
Oh BTW, My ram has built in Water Cooling Jacket that keep them literaly Cool to the touch while cranking the volts. That's not to say that IF kept at higher volts thermalmigration wouldn't affect them, just because they're cool... IDK...
Well the Wife, my daughter and myself are off to pick out a nice Spruce for the front room. So I'll be back on here later this evening, at the latest.
I'm starting my "OCventure" over again. Got her Blending right now at this and I'm going to work my up again. I've fiddling around with settings way to much lately. So will let her get uses to some stress tests andI'll keep her moving upward. Hoefully I can get some stability back.
244Mhz x 13 3172Mhz CPU @ 1.355v (CPUZ= 1.336v not quite a .02Vdroop)
1952MHz HTL @ 1.2v (stock)
2440 CPU-NB @ 1.25v
1626Mhz Ram @ 1.9v
NB Chipset @ 1.25v
SB Chipset @ 1.25v (Running a 30GbOCZVertSSD + a New WD "Green" 32mb 500Gb HD. And I must say that it a nice one.
My Last 8Mb 250Gb WD HD Ran @ 50-54*C.
This one Runs right at about 23*C and it uses a good amount less power AND it's Super Quiet. I could always hear my old one Spin up/down and shut of. I can't hear this one at all.Edited by Mastiffman - 12/5/09 at 11:40am
