Sorry for the bother bro I just want to compare my ugly Car Engine Motor Noctua so that people here understands the difference compared to something entirely at stock(original fans & TIM).. vs an H50 with 2 shrouds, 2 good fans & pretty certain you have a good TIM as well.

I am entirely certain your ambients are better than mines(my area is 90f 24/7, in my room with AC ON hitting directly the Computer I'd guess roughly mid 25-27c)... now I want you to run the same test as me LinX just 20 passes with the button "All" pressed.. as well use the same temp monitoring program CoreTemp

Here is mines 4.1Ghz 1.5v 2800NB 1.35v

I know you said 4Ghz 1.5125... but I want you to use it again on my same LinX test... since we both pretty much have similar set up as in... 8gb ram, 2 GFX, 965 C3, 850w PSU

You have a pretty decent H50 set up... so it sounds like a perfect VS test with the Noctua NH-D14 stock... I don't believe you got 55c I honestly think it was lower than that... unless your ambients weren't that good when you did your testing before... that is why i want you to re-test.

Problem with that is CoreTemp does not work with my motherboard for CPU temps at all. The only thing that works with my motherboard is OverclockingCenter to monitor my CPU temps. I even posted some pics of a program and what I get with every other program other than OverclockingCenter.



At the bottom you can see my CPU temps 0C showing for all temps the same with every program I have tried.

Crazy... i get 4.0ghz on my c3 with only 1.475v. Must be lucky.
I have my NB at 2400mhz though, as it seemed the sweet spot. Any higher and i actually lost performance.

is this the program? "MSI overclocking center"

well since I have MSI.. I'm going to download it.. to see if it monitors the same temps as coretemp ... and if it does I'd guess you can do the re-test... I'll post back in a bit

2600 mhz is the recommended min for 3.8 to 4.0 ghz. Try 1.325 Volts on the NB Vid and is should be stable no problem. There is a clear link between NB and CPU performance. 2400 is just too low for the setting you have on the CPU. Temp only went up a bit in my case at 2600 mhz.

Yes you have a "lucky" CPU.

In tried LinX 0.6.4 but it hardly seemed to stress my CPU and temps hardly increased. May I suggest you try Prime 95 blended test or IntelBurn test so we can compare temps? I use CPU HWMonitor for my temps which seems to work really well.

You have to Right click - Run As Adminstrator .. its BURNS 5-8c above Prime95 on blend

burns same as intel's burn test.. linX is much more reliable than IBT

HWmonitor, Everest, CoreTemp for me gives me the same exact temps - so its 100% Accurate my temps

i want someone to test exactly the same as I did.. I am not saying mine is better.. I just want someone to test exactly the same thing

another note you can't compare to mines, you have only 4gb of ram - its a different result while testing with LinX compared to 8gb ram which will stress higher than on your setup

while I am curious I'm not going to run a 2+ hour test, I can tell you that your temps are really good though. On Intel Burn Test at 21 C ambient with 1.5 volts feeding my 4.020 Ghz overclock I get 54 C. Add on a degree to this figure for each degree of ambient over 21 C and you get a better comparison. This also corresponds to what I have seen in reviews for the H70 where the H50 dual fan configuration is mentioned along with the NH D-14 (which I almost bought by the way before I bought the H50). The H70 in these reviews just edges out the NH D-14 which beats the H50 by a few degrees.

Yes you have a "lucky" CPU.
been there, done that... as i said, the performance is better at 2400 than 2600 for some reason.
I'll try it again and run benchmarks to confirm, but that was certainly the case last time.

that is kind of odd 2600 is a fact better than 2400... unless for some reason on yours its acting kind of nuts
