We are a bit off topic here, but now I can read your screenshot, so ... that version of OCCT may be outdated, check update [HERE] ... why I say that is ...

1) your running in DX10, should be DX11
2) 110+ million errors? OCCT should crash/lockup with that many?
3) Although your CPU temps are about right, your CPU usage/loads should be higher 30% not 14%?
4) CPU should also be engaging your OC @4.2GHz not stock 3.3 clocks or at least be boosting to 3.7-3.8GHz clocks ... Oppps forgot, if your still doing OC Genie thing that could be the problem? You can double check this in 3DMark11 especially your "Physics" scores smile.gif

5) MSI Afterburner ... your using a newer version than I (2.2.4 vs 2.1.0) along with more recent Nvidia drivers (306.97 vs 296.10) BUT your "Shader Clock" is not showing as synched with your "Core Clock" and your core voltage seems low for a "reference" card, 975mV vs 988mV for mine, could be what make/brand card your using??? BUT your temps seem to be excellent ... you have tons of "headroom" to bump the voltage if you wish, where you will see the biggest gains from OC'ing the core clocks/volts ... overclocking the memory beyond 2000 is pretty finicky with the 570 and I'd actually back it down to stock 1900 until I found my max core clocks/volts, then fool with the memory if you like, but the memory won't give you as big a performance boost and can make things more unstable and hard to track down in "real world" stressloads redface.gif

Along with 3DMark you may also like this program for "real world" GPU stressing, it's one of my favorites ... Unigen Heaven [HERE]

That should keep you busy for awhile ... time to ditch OC Genie? redface.gif take care T

Very impressive for an H60, especially with those Hot-runnin Phenoms! Care to share your setup?

my mobo only had 1 CPU_FAN header. Ill give it a shot splitting the 2 fan and plug it in the CPU_FAN header and the pump in CHA_FAN. thumb.gif
*Edit : Ive split the 2 fan and plug it in CPU_FAN and the pump at CHA_FAN. not much different, hope the fan ran at same speed. lol. tongue.gif

Doesn't it just SUCK that Windows 8 is doing away with widgets?

Well from now on I will only post highly relevant pics lol smile.gif Yeah? I really have no idea what my temps should look like, had really big problems before with my GPU reaching to about 85C while in bf3. So thats about all I have to compare to, I still think 60C is abit high. Im not on stock fans either, those corsair wich came in the box are more suitable for torture or maybe as afterburners for a jet.
I will dive into this manual overclocking as soon as my new PSU arrives smile.gif thx for your answer!

A month or so ago I was having some driver issues with my HD69XX cards. During the course of the problems I was having, I was using my system and noticed it seemed quieter than usual. I was running GW2. I checked my GPU temps, and they were running over 100c. I couldn't believe it.

The fault was Afterburner. While I was screwing around with the drivers, something happened to afterburner and it stopped controlling the fans on my cards. I have it set up for a custom ramp, so they are noisy but cooler than stock. For some reason, it just stopped controlling the fans and I couldn't get it to work until I removed AB and reinstalled it.

My GPUs can hit 80c when I smack them around with Furmark (76c for the bottom card and 80c for the top card), but usually when I'm gaming they stay under 70.

I want two of these:

Push/Pull configuration with 2x 120mm Cooler Master R4 Red LED Fans set to Intake on rear exhaust. Top 200MM Megaflow set to exhaust. Bottom Front Megaflow set to intake. All those fans are on a Lamptron FC6 Fan controller. Ambient is about 75*F. Have to run a window AC Unit in the room I have my rig in. Otherwise it gets too hot. Top Megaflow is cranking out 100* heat 24/7. And thats just my rig. Wifes Phenom II X4 is also folding 20/7 and theere is no telling how hot that room would get without the AC.

But I can't afford them for a while.mad.gif

"The fault was Afterburner". ... LoL - Surely you jest? wink.gif ... Oh how Afterburner has made our lives so much easier/richer! I learned the lesson of reinstalling VGA tweak programs after a VGA (Nvidia) driver tweak/change way back in the days of "Coolbits" and "Rivatuner" from "Unwinder" a Guru3D moderator whom I believe wrote the "Afterburner" program for MSI? ... But your not alone, I still have made the same mistake a few x's because after a driver change Afterburner can look like it made the update without touching it, not always true redface.gif ... oops, starting to ramble again ...

Now Merg, I know you posted the Accelero Hybrid Graphics Card Cooler link just to fire up the All-in-One vs Custom Loop discussion again? ... Hmmm maybe not? wink.gif ... but seriously if your running SLI your way better off going with a custom loop figuring in the cost of 2 Accelero's @$140 ($169 Newegg) a pop +ship / moddifying room for 2 more less efficient 120mm rads / and occupying 6 slots total of motherboard real estate redface.gif Hmmm ... but then the cost of potentially replacing the VGA blocks every time you upgrade with a custom loop? Yikes $$$! I like the Dwood solution below for $$$/performance biggrin.gif

Especially for a single card ... About 6 mos ago an OCN member, Dwood came up with a custom plate to adapt an H50/H70 etc to a video card (NO more Zip ties!) .. LordXeb brought it up again just a few pages ago and would save anyone with some skills big $$$ even if you don't have an old H50/H70 lying around, I thought you mentioned you had an old H70 somewhere? Even if a friend snagged it, a used H50 $20-$25 (eBay) and H70 $50 (eBay) $75 new / the Dwood custom Logo bracket $20 / your choice of custom fans $$$??? ... you'd probably replace the Accelero 120mm fan or add to it for push/pull? ... AND I don't trust the Accelero "Sone" measurement for sound and would bet that little 80mm memory/VRM fan would get quite loud under load ... All-in-ALL you could save as much as 50% depending on the pump/fans you use (or match the Accelero X-3 air cooler) ... or even MUCH MORE if you already had a pump/fans and we all have extra fans lying around, I think rolleyes.gif

I am out of curiosity in thoughts of ordering a few new fans for my H80, after reading some of the pages in this thread it seems pretty clear that Scythe Gentle.T is the general choice for performance. I looked around a little on other pages, and somehow got stuck on the Silverstone Air Penetrators, but on the other hand noone has said anything about them? Or have I just missed it?

With my excelllent skills in paint I have illustrated why I think the Air Penetrators "should?" do a good job. But then again, since I cant see anyone mentioning them anywhere I just wanted an opinion on them.

I might be wrong, but by putting my hand in front of my exhaust I can feel the air flow spreading out. In my noobopinion the penetrators should do a much better job cooling the radiator, or am I missing something?

Although you and I have had many conversations wink.gif ... I certainly don't want to be alone in commenting, so jump in guys! smile.gif ....

BUT I totally disagree in your assessment that you will see "any" real-world performance gains by replacing your excellent Noctua NF-P12 fans with Silverstone Air Penatrators (I actually own one) or any other fan for that matter, with possibly one exception, your stock H80 Corair fans.

As I remember your running push/pull, and acording to your very nice "Paint" pic above for airflow, your 2nd fan in the "Pull" position is there to allleviate the very airflow problems you describe above. Now if you want to go back to a single fan in the "Push" position you may see some improvement in your "airflow" characteristics, but I highly doubt it would translate into signifigantly lower temps if any at all redface.gif

Here's a little tip that I do to all my cases for the rear exhaust/intake 120/140mm fan position and others. It will translate to a 1-3c (sometimes more?) degree improvement depending on the original type of fan grill removed and fans used. Take your Dremmel (or jigsaw) and remove the grill thumb.gif
