**The Official Prolimatech Club**(UPDATED 1/11) - Page 93

post #921 of 1212
Well, sign me up for the club. Check out this build. I now have a San Ace 9G1212P4G03 PWM controlled 120x25mm fan on it. According to the specs, it goes from 1000 to 4100 RPM under PWM control, with a max noise of 51 dBA.

With Hot Rod running at stock in an ambient of 18c, the i7 860 idles at 14 - 16c, reported by Real Temp and Speed Fan. Even the BIOS reported a similar temp! Less than ambient, eh? I think Intel's warning that the further you get from Tj max the less accurate the sensor is should be taken seriously.

The TIM is the paste that came with the cooler, laid in a centered row in an east-west direction (the heatsink is set for air to go south to north). The case was upright, with sides closed.

On PWM the fan ran 1534 to 3870 rpm. On voltage regulation, it ran 875 to 3970 up to 4000MHz, where it ran 3994 rpm. Noise was 71.5 dBA at 10cm, which puts it at 51.5 dBA at 1m, in a basement that runs between 35 and 40 dBA.

I tested the machine at BCLK 133 (default), 150, 166 and 200 MHz. CPU ratio was 21x, except for BCLK=200, where I set it to 20x just to make sure it would be stable. Dropped the memory multiplier to 8x for BCLK over default. And I turned off Turbo Boost. No other changes.

Highest temps running default LinX, according to Real Temp and approximately confirmed by Speedfan 4.40:

BCLK 133 core0 max = 45c
BCLK 150 core0 max = 52c
BCLK 166 core3 max = 65c
BCLK 200 core3 max = 81c

Temp3 (Speedfan)/CPU temp (Gigabyte ET6) is probably Tcase. It got up to 68c at 4002MHz. Design temp is 72c, so I did not exceed Intel's spec.

These runs were one-off's, to test the system. A front fan was installed, but in a preliminary test with the heatsink fan at max, the open space beside the front intake fan (right panel removed) was drawing in air. As was the REAR grill, normally inhabited by an exhaust fan. The air blowing out the top vents was as much as many fans make, and it had come up through a Megahalems and the top grills. And this fan is only rated at 130 cfm. It's not one of the monsters.

This was my second seating with the Megahalems. The first one got me max temps in the high 60's at BCLK = 133. I had tried to put just the thinnest layer of TIM on it. When I pulled it off, it was essentially metal-to metal. The TIM was there, but not as much as I had thought. Clearly, there is a minimum amount needed.

Absolutely lovely.

BTW - if you are considering using a 140mm fan with a Megahalems, forget about it: the mounting screws get in the way, big time. I know. I just tried it. Very disappointing.

That Ram should OC just fine.But with a Q6600 i would think that your ram would pretty much max a O6600.But then im not sure how the bios is setup on the EVGA 790i FTW what dividers and multipliers it has
