price range is good.

or anyone have any suggestions?
Those sticks are good, but I like to suggest buying 1600 RAM with CAS7 timings (something like 7-7-7-21 timings). It's not much of an improvement over those sticks, but if you're trying to squeeze for the best performance CAS6 or 7 1600mhz RAM is best.

Better timings, a possibly cheaper price if you get your rebate, and free shipping. Not to mention that this is low-profile, so they won't block any HSFs (the Ripjaws can block fans if your HSF is in a horizontal setup).

I think you need to run a 20 pass of LINX,just to see how stable your system really is at those settings,
What's LINX? Is it the same as OCCT's Linpack? I tried running 7-7-7-18-25 in OCCT's Linpack, but they failed after the second pass, just like you predicted.

I changed my settings again and I'm now running:

CPU @ 3.8ghz (200x19) with 1.4v
NB-CPU @ 2600mhz (200x13) with 1.15v and my NB is at 1.15v as well (I'm surprised at how low these voltages are)
RAM @ 1600mhz with 1.95v (rated voltage) and 7-7-7-20-27 (rated timings)
HT-Link @ 2000mhz with auto voltage (for some reason I can OC to 3ghz with voltage still set on auto)

Temps:

CPU @ idle 31-33°C
CPU @ load 40-45°C (normal load vs Prime95)
NB @ idle 39°C
NB @ load 40-44°C (normal load vs OCCT/Prime95)

I still struggle using a NB-CPU multiplier of 14x with low voltages, so I have to crank it up to NB-CPU 1.45v-1.5v+ or I get no cold boot. I'd have to use my previous method of using a lower multiplier while using a higher HTT/FSB to get a 2.8-3ghz OC on my NB.

I run my NB/SB/HT link voltages all @1.26v,this is plenty,i run my CPU-NB/IMC voltage @1.36v for 2600-2800mhz frequency.You gain very little having your HT-link speed over stock,ie 2000,thats my opinion anyway,some may dissagree with this,lol!!!!

can i use just the two blue ram slots or do i have to use the black ones when using only 2 sticks. just curious because my push fan isn't centered on my megahalem because the ram is in the way.

Yes you can use the blue slots,in fact i and many others on here use them as default.

Guys

Im using 965 at 4.0Ghz with 2800Nb and 2600Ht @ v1.42 my idle is 40c-44c and my load is around 47c-55c i think, at the moment im using a Xigmatek S1283 push 'n' pull method, i still think my temps are alittle high.

Should i move to Corsair H50-1 for the CPU (water), i think the reason im seeing high temps is that my case is fully loaded.

infront of the heatsink i have 6 hdd with 2 fans pushing air from front to back, my xigmatek is sucking air from bottom to top.

What do you all think ?
post #5127 of 9641
First off I'd spend money replacing that case. That would solve a bunch of airflow trouble. Then you could truly see if that S1283 is still not cutting the mustard.

Ok,

Tell me a case that holds 7-8 hdd, 2 x dvdrws, 1 aerocool temp display, 1 fan controller, must be able to fit a 4870x2 or 5970.

I couldnt find anything out there. Basically i need 8 x 3.5" internal and 6 x 5.1/4" ext only thing big enough are the Cheiftec

The new Cheiftec do all this but the air flow is wrong

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Chieftec-Mesh-...item2c51079919

At the moment im using the Chieftec matrix which is made any more, one of the best cases ive had, excellent design.

What do you all think ?
Thats the problem with these massive HSF's they make these days,they do a good job of cooling the cpu,but they also interupt good airflow through the case.You do seem to have a lot of hardware in your case,all adding to the heat problem,and yes,your temps are a bit on the high side.

You could go with the H50-1,or get a bigger case,do you really need 5 HDD's,lol!!!
