post #11591 of 13131
I dont have a fan mounted behind the cpu at the moment but that would probably help. It idles in mid 40s on stock settings which seems high to me but may not be a huge deal. I just dont like seeing them bothersome. The rad is at the top of the Elysium but I dont its making that much much difference as they were the same before I switch over approx

I run one of these in my Elysium http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185137&Tpk=35-185-137 behind the mobo. It dropped my NB a couple degrees and also has to help VRMs too! I don't recall if there's a full cover block for the Extreme or not. Might be something to investigate.

How's your rad mounted? Mine is top exhaust w/filter removed on my Formula. NB maxs in low 40c's under load (idles 32-34c). If you have it mounted as intake perhaps it's not cool enough air blowing onto NB HS?

I was looking for a couple skinnier 120mm fans for the back of my CIVE MB. My Antec Lanboy Air case has the mounts built into the removable panels, buy there just isn't enough room for the thicker 25mm fans on that side. These 12mm fans will fit nicely. I did a little snooping, and found the same fan with 2000 RPM spindles, so ordered 2 of them instead.

Thanks for the link thumb.gif

Hey guys, I have a quick question. I just got my Thuban 1035t (2.6 native) OCed to 4.004 (yay!). Anyway, I'm still a bit new to this. I have it running stable, no BSOD, passing prime95 tests, but I think I may have an issue with my temps. CPUID's Hardware Monitor App (which is what I'm using instead of cpuz) says that my CPU temp maxes at 68c, however my core temps max at 52c... Is this safe? The CPU temp is under the main board area, not the CPU area of the app. The core temp is under the CPU area. Which one should I trust? Thanks

Core Temp! Here's a real good read on this topic http://www.overclock.net/t/1128821/amd-temp-information-and-guide

Thanks Sandman. Okay, so my coretemp maxes at 52c. I guess thats good! My vcore is offset +0.15, and my cpu/nb is offset by 0.0625. Is this cpu/nb offset necessary? I added it because it showed that my cpu/np frequency was increasing so I figured it would be better safe than sorry. What do you think? Also, what other tweaks should I perform now that my CPU oc is stable? Faster CPU/NB? Faster NB? Faster HT? And how would I do these? Thanks man

Keep the HT Link Speed at 2000MHz +/- 200MHz
Raise the NB Freq as high as possible (2800-3000MHz) adjust CPU/NB Voltage as Prime95 fails with a "Worker Has failed" error. Do this just like a CPU in stages, test and make adjustments and retest till stable

After that you could see how your Dram fairs with an OC.

You really should fill in your system specs so others might gain some help that have similar systems, plus makes it easier for those that help you.

Almost got it lol.
Look under "My Profile" at the top of this page and fill in specs for your rig sig than it will be part of your signature for each post you make.

Good luck and post back if you have any more questions!

How does one go about testing a CPU for bottlenecking

Thanks
