37 idle is fine, what are your load temps? Have you started testing it yet?

What is your fan setup on your H50? We have almost identical systems, but my idle temp at 4 GHz is about 29-30C.

ok so i am now running IBT and i crash after 11 passes on standard. since i am such a noob. what should i be running IBT at and what are some stable results?

also if i keep crashing then i just need to start bumping CPU Voltage" and/or "QPI/DRAM Core Voltage" incrementally one minimum bump at a time? do i do both or is one preferred over the other?

THANK YOU THANK YOU

i am currently running the corsair stock fan till me 2 x gentle typhoon ap15's get here. I have it place in the front drive bays strapped up the unused 3.25 floppy frame. I should post pics of my mod! It is set to intake and I have a 90angle curved 5 inch exhaust vent pointing up the the top exhaust.

well, first thanks for the input. I tried to reset the heat sink a few more times with different case fan configuration to improve the air flow. Nothing seems to work still idling around 40-44c; load 75-80.
I'm about to give up on this. I did notice that the megahalem contact plate has thin line separation between the heat pipe and the plate. Maybe i got a defective coolers? although highly unlikely.

Anything else I can try?

I did notice my chip set is generating a lot of heat, after I turn off the system most of heat i feel is coming from the Mobo. I have the p6x58d Premium board.

Yeah, its okay, considering you are using a single stock fan. Once you get those GT's installed you should see that drop down some as well. What were your load temps like when you ran the stress test? You may have to wait until you get better fans put on before you start doing some heavy stressing. That single stock fan is probably struggling to keep the chip cool.

If you are trying to tune it with the most accuracy, you'll probably want to adjust one at a time. BTW, Did you have HT on or off? You may want to start out with HT off for now, until you get your better fans installed. Or, you may not even need HT at all. (depends on what you use the computer for). It would also help drop your temps a bit.

Very strange. Your case is supposedly pretty good at cooling. The Premium board (as opposed to the E version) has better heat pipe transfer from the chipsets too, which gets pushed to that heatsink near the back IO ports. Maybe you need to install a fan on or near that to suck/pull the hot air from that area? I believe Asus includes a small fan in the box for this, but, you may want to look at getting a beefier fan for that area? Otherwise, I'm kind of at a loss at the moment.

If it helps at all, my load temps are around 75C with push/pull GT's exhausting out the back. I've tried AS5 and IC7, AS5 winning so far - I'm probably going to put some Shin Etsu on later and reseat it maybe to hopefully get better temps.

Hey guys,

I'm starting to look for an X58 motherboard and the P6X58D-E looked like a good choice.

So I need you guys to raise as many points as to why I should purchase the P6X58D-E as opposed to the GA-X58A-UD3R or the ASROCK X58 Extreme3.

Thanks.

Well that'll teach me to buy a cheap PSU! My Corsair TX850 arrived today and I'm now running rock solid at xmisery's 3.6GHz settings with the 9800GTX+ card.... Idle temps are about 27 rising to 60 max using prime95 small FFT test. No more random restarts It's quite amazing just how much the PSU affects not just stability but temperatures as well, everything was MUCH hotter with the GTX+ and the old PSU.

Luckily a mate of mine with an old Athlon setup has just had his 400W PSU go pop, so hopefully my old 700W job will do him just fine.

Thanks for all the help guy's. I'm happy with 3.6GHz at the moment but might try for 4 when I feel I "need some more". Those H50 coolers are something else though!

Cheers,

Rory
