I tried a shroud and I tried p/p. not at the same time but separately. Honestly I didn't see much of a difference at all. I did see my NB temp go up a little bit because it blocked the air flow from my side panel fans onto the NB.

I'm back to one fan and happy with it. Your mileage may vary.

using i7 930 batch A826 I am stable at (200x20) 4.0GHz @ 1.312v while I barely changed any voltage of the motherboard...just one step higher for all other voltages. ASrock x58 extreme3 I guess does not need too much voltage for overclocking. and its stable at 4GHz until I hit 90C and I stop the test.

the only problems is heat! using Corsair H70 with a single fan, my temps at idle are like 43-37-44-36 but as soon as I run prime in less than 5 seconds the cores jump to 77-75-76-75 and after some minutes it up to 90. and I can feel the radiator is hot. I am sure I have installed the block correctly.

is there any chance that my H70 is defunct? or should I add the other fan also?

The H70 comes with two fans are you sure that you don't mean the H50?

If you are using the H50 you should definitely get/have two matched fans for push/pull. Recommended fans from many here are Yate Loon high speed/medium speed or Scythe GentleTyphoon AP-15 fans. The yates are are louder but cheap and work great for what you spend on them the GT's are more expensive but very quiet.

Thanks for reply.

Well yeah thats a H70 I got but due to noise I just use one fan, and not the default fan. I am using Noiseblocker M12-P that comes with PWM.

The mysteri is my temps just jump from 40 idle to 80 in few seconds and hits 90 in a matter of minutes.

I wonder if someone has tried H70 with a single fan?
post #13245 of 28303
The H70 radiator is about twice as thick as the H50. It takes a lot of pressure to push the air through the radiator, so I would think your problem is that your 1 fan just can't push enough air through it to take away the heat, so it is building up really quickly. You've GOT to put another (matched) fan on that radiator! If the noise is too much, use the included adaptors that limit the fan speed.

This PII X6 1090T is scary awesome. Just installed it and got some prelim temps before overclocking... Reference clocks Turbo enabled here's where my setup sits

Ambient temp 23.5C, temperature topped out at 31-32C across all cores @ stock clocks.

Coretemp is no good for AMD, you should use HWmonitor or PC Probe from Asus is great since you have an Asus mobo.

Yeah, that's why I had everest up too (which isn't great either). (I know it'll be like +10C with the "real" temp)I'm in the process of DLing probe even though I've never cared for it, darn Asus website has always been so slow Would have used Overdrive but it's not compatible with my chipset. I mean, I always assume with AMD procs that it's understating my temps, but it's still very solid

New temps. Only raising the multiplier (Bios voltage 1.425v software monitor 1.34v) @ 3.8Ghz with a 24C ambient I'm hitting 40C core temps (Everest) and 52C CPU temp (PC Probe). Not too bad, I'll see how it handles a FSB boost vs a multiplier bump later.
