Where to go from here? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I've replaced the fan on my HS with a 5000 rpm thermal take 80mm. That reduced my cpu temps a lot but it's not getting me far with a chintsy aluminum HS. I have my CPU auto shutdown at 60C. A ~70 shutoff is something you ought to look into and back off the OC until you get some decent cooling.

Here are pictures of my cooling, and I've been told I don't have enough. How does yours compare?

80mm's

92mm

80mm HSF - 5000rpm

Well it ran for 8.5 hours on prime95 stress test last night without 1 hiccup, @ 3.33ghz and the temp was 74c this morning after running all night. I know you guys say that's high, but this thing seems to handle it - will get fan today and see what temps the CPU gets then..will perhaps replace the hdd fan with one of those dual ones too for some air flow,

RAM timing is down to 2.5-7-4-4 and stable, will push for more, I just really really cbf'ed resetting it all again if it wont boot

I dont understand the power shut off, I dont have the option set in the bios or in any application within windows..which is why I am thinking power supply, also considering my x800 is running a molex cable too and must be draining some power..

Don't worry... Those 5XX and 6XX run very hot under stock cooling. You may want to get a Big Typoon (Best aircooling) or water cooling.

is big typhoon the best cooling, I thought the blue orb was?? okay, anyway I think as long as I get a decent after market fan it should make a bit difference... im not worried about the heat really, just want to see how far i can take it for now (i've realised i've saved $160 already in parts, lol)

Hey guys quick update - I bought a Zalman 7700 fan/hs for the CPU, it's sweet and excellent news is that now clocked @ 3.4 ghz, the temps are only 58 max after loading it for about an hour, 50c when straight to load then a slow crawl..

Npw I have 2 problems remaining -

the FSBRAM - I dont know how to modify this, I've tried to search around but had no luck, is this an option in the BIOS? The only way I can overclock my CPU is to do it linearly with the RAM speed, you cant do them individually (stupid I know..I have latest BIOS version).

The power will shut off around 3.45ghz once it's booted into windows, during the system tray icon loadups..nothing special, do you think I need a new PS? I just had a look and think that's the problem, it's 350w - have I solved my own problem, lol....ok should I buy a 500 or 600 watt?

im getting close to 3.66 .. thanks guys

Usually they have a choice for you somewhere that says one a a few things but they are all the same thing:

1:1 cpu:dram ratio... move this down the next step down.

400mhz dram frequency ... this is the equivilent of 1:1... move it down to 333 or whatever the next lowest step is and overclock from there.

It's typically in the "chipset" or "advanced BIOS settings" sections.

It sounds like your system is running on it's edge. Most likely from your RAM being the weakest link... loosen the timings and/or reduce the ratio as I said above.
