Your temps are right. I notice you are at a very low VCore (around .86) which is really going to contribute to low temps. Looks like you're running at stock clock too (3.2-3.3ish). If you decide to overclock that chip, you'll see your temps come up.

Ambient ended up being around 18.5c, not 20c, so it was screwing with my head, and despite running stock idling at just above ambient is awesome with air cooling. Water cooling should be finished tomorrow.

Managed to get 4 GHz at those same temps. My respect for the Noctua actually went up, and it was high to begin with.

While your Noctua is good, I'm thinking this has way more to do with the quality of your CPU...you know, being Intel's top of the line...

post #2395 of 2630
Hey guys just bought myself a i7 920. Don't know what to choose for a board but im really liking the evga color schemes! This board would probably be in my budget. How is this board for reliability and what not?

the evga boards are nice and most important rock solid for the majority of times. If 210 is your budget then i would advise to get that board, i m personally still debating between a lower budget board or a rampage 3 formula. just for the ocing i would prefer the formula as its got a tad more potential, but its also 90 bucks more

Yeah i would say that's pretty much my budget. Being 16 it's tough being able to afford a nice system but im trying my hardest. I need to buy new also just for warranty purposes cause it's not like i have the cash i can fork out for a new board if i buy used and it dies in a month.

Im hoping to pair this up with my 920 and OC to 4.0+ pretty easily.

4.0 if its a 920 D0 is fairly easy, most boards start running into fine tuning steps and heat related issues at and around 4.2+ ghz, the 3xsli is a good mid budget board in my personal opinion and well worth the cash.

It's a great board, but I'm not sure if it's board or just my board but it has a few downsides: 1) Voltages are preset and there is no fine-tuning (2) It tends to overvolt and underclock the BCLK.

If you're looking to hit 4.0-4.2 get it, but if you want to hit 4.3+ I would look for something more high-end.
