Guess i'm gonna flip the psu and see what happens. I think my theory is right cuz it did change temps once i swamped psu.

I know alot about oc'ing the quads in 775 socket era lol.

Tips can be appreciated and bios are a little hugely different than i expected. I don't wanna screw things up but yea i'd love to go 4ghz or 3.4
blck is the base clock , my bios is set up like so .. 22x177 + turbo = 24x177 = 4.248Ghz @ 1.408v .

22x175 = 3.8Ghz , 22x170 = 3.7Ghz , 22x165 = 3.6Ghz , 22x160=3.5Ghz , 22x155=3.4Ghz ( turbo on , will give you 24x multi )

20x200 = 4.0Ghz , 20x190 = 3.8Ghz , 20x180 = 3.6Ghz , 20x170 = 3.4Ghz

Depending on what ram you have i would set it on quite low while you get your overclock sorted , once thats done put the ram multi so its sitting close to stock freq or just a tad overclocked ..usually if left on auto it will sort out the best frq for your ram at the speeds u selected .

Then you will need to work out your voltages to run your overclock , anything 4Ghz and lower i would leave all the voltages on auto and just set the vcore to whatever your overclock is stable at .

If you need a hand with anything let me know , i5 760 is similar to my i7 870 just no hyperthreading so you will have lower temps to start with .. U shuld hit similar clocks to me since u got a h70 now dont be afraid to get more out of ur cpu.

PSU's can be mounted either way without harm. It is not suggested to run a psu with the fan facing a wall or the case floor unless there is a hole in it for the psu to breathe. It needs to be able to pull sufficient amounts of air through it to cool it properly. You would damage/overheat it faster with the fan facing the floor than you would with the fan facing the top.

Not saying to turn it over - saying air goes out the BACK whatever way up it is.

Yeah he's a bit unclear in his posts(to me anyways) but he may have the psu fan facing up already so you are right not to turn it over and face the fan towards the floor.

I had issues with my psu cables not being long enough when I mounted it with the fan facing up so I had to mount mine with the fan facing the floor and my case didn't have the hole for it either. I had a big drill bit laying around and just made a bunch of holes right in front of where the psu fan sits. I made a filter for it too so it doesn't suck up all the dirt and dust.

My psu sits at the bottom in the antec 1200 , the fan sucks in and blows out the back ? whats the issues with that ? its not really effecting anything ..If anything it helps get the warm air out of ur case , but since its at the bottom its just chewing up all the cool air im blowing in =p along with my gfx card.

if your psu is blowing air into your case , id open it up and switch the fan around to intake and exhaust out the case . Dont physically flip over the psu that would be bad ..Never heard of a psu exhausting into the case :s that would suck

Exactly, i think i will be fine. The psu has a lot of vent on the back so likely it'll stay cool anyways. I shouldn't be worried but i am totally gonna invest another psu with side fan exhausts. I'm picky and yes i rather have proper airflow for my gpu and case.

I appreciate the tips how to overclock the processor. I'm a little frighten to try because i never overclocked a i5 before. I know so much about overclocking quads and 775 socket bios.

This one is way a little different.

Tempted to go 4ghz but maybe 3.8? Dunno how far this processor can go and dunno what would be the safe temps. I don't really ever use Prime 95 plus i used to always use the Intel test burn. For now i'd rather learn more about it before i even ATTEMPT to try lol.

Switching the fan around? That's a brillant idea..i should have thought of that!!

I did flip it though.. call me crazy but i think i might be ok. Xristo said he did his and works fine ever since? I would love to see a thread debate about this issue.

I could dremel the bottom of the case but i don't own a tool and i don't even think i'd wanna try cuz i might mess something up but i'd don't mind lol. I'd be more concerned if the dust on the bottom rises in the bottom of the case? lol.




Thoughts? My psu is currently flipped and i saw a HUGE difference in temps like the way i had with my old psu. Now flipping the fan is a good idea but i will void this psu's warranty if i do.. This is bought from a member in forums so i have no idea if the warranty is till intact.


(EDIT) What if i flipped the fan and then flipped the psu? hmmm....

your welcome , i wouldnt be afraid u cant physically damage a cpu from overclocking ..new mobo's will have dual bios so if u did exceed the limits of the cpu it will reboot back to default settings rather than clear the cmos like u used to have to..

You are using a h70 , if you have it in push pull i would alomost gurantee your cpu would run nicely at 4Ghz and never have a problem ..but as u said if ur not comfortable overclocking yet than read abit more about it .

So you cant open the psu to turn the fan over ? find out if its still under warrenty ? or harden up and open it up n switch it around =D its good to learn , u will also learn that if u are careful nothing can go wrong . Its just 4 screws to to open up the top casing of the psu , switch the fan over and bobs ur uncle =) psu's are a dime a dozen these days anyway unless its 1000w+ i paid $60 AUD for a 665w

I was thinking of taking out my psu fan and swapping it for one with blue leds , wuld like nice .
