I see quite a few people reaching 4.2GHz with that unit. Look at this vid for proof:

...
I'll backup the claim that 4.2 is doable with a H50.. i'm at 4.4 currently withthe H50 P/P at 85c Prime.. Big case and plenty of flow though. but yeah if your looking for around 4.2 it won't be a problem unless your case flow is shocking.

Well, I was thinking of getting the Lancool PC-K62 case, it's a mid tower, though it should be fine, shouldn't it? Plenty of fans and it's a gaming designed case

Hey All,

I just posted what you're about to read here. Hope you like and I also want to thank you MacG32 for leading me to Aquax & everyone else that helped me with my issues with my OC'ing this chip to it's 4.2 GHz capacity:

http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...tml#post367175

Hey Guys, Just wanted to say THANKS for the help. I didn't try out your settings yet Aquax (maybe I DID miss something). I will try it out later. I'll tell you what I did do, I actually installed the Indigo Xtreme (thermal interface kit). I thought it was only going to shave off 2 to 3°C. Well... I actually shaved off 6.08°C !!!!!

I can't believe I shaved off that much by using that thermal heat exchange pad. I was simply floored !!!!! I can't wait to post this video review on that product. Now although our whole main focus is on home security and personal protection products, I'm really looking forward to posting this review. Now there are couple of guys out there that have posted their own review of this product but I actually have actual proof with the snap shots that I took before and after using RealTemp as the temperature gauge with using Arctic Silver 5 and then using the NEW Indigo Xtreme.

Here is the other major breakthrough that I've been waiting for for the last month, I finally did what you had mentioned Aquax (like I did in the past on my own), I actually typed in 200 in the BIOS and started up my Mak Hac Pro. So far everything is running great. I just hope it stays that way. The RAM is running at full capacity at 1600 MHz and the CPU is at its full 4.2 GHz !!!!! This was a very long day in the installation process of this thermal heat exchange pad; mainly because of the prepping that I had to do in order to get everything installed properly. There was a lot of disconnecting and reconnecting and more disconnecting and more reconnecting and then installing, then reconnecting, restarting, reprogramming, restarting again, etc., etc., etc... I was definitely scared as I've never done anything like this before. Heck, I never even put a PC together before so this whole thing has been a completely new experience anyway; scary, but exciting! And I'm really fired up with the results!

But I will try out your setup Aquax. Hopefully by Monday or Tuesday of next week I will be able to post the video review for all of you to watch it. Again thanks for all the help and I hope everything stays stable with this system. By the way Aquax, I will be getting in touch with you tomorrow once I try out your BIOS setup, as I noticed a couple of things that I did not write down that were not on the list of changes that you wanted me to adjust, but what I'll do is write them down and then post it here so you can help me out with some of the tweaking of how you have things set up. Later...


I'm still not out of the "woods" yet, I just froze up a moment ago and have to keep the fans running at their full capacity, but first thing tomorrow I'm going to update the firmware and also make those BIOS adjustments to see how much better things will work with this system.

For those of you that helped me, if you need something (when it comes to PC parts) please let me know and I'll see if I can help you with getting a better price. MacG32, I know that the Corsair H70 is coming out and if you have your eye on that unit (or any other PC part), let me know. Hopefully I can beat Newegg's price when it does come out... Again, thanks !!!

In the lancool, the h-50 is not as good as the prolimatech megahalem. I recommend to go with that and it will probably work out cheaper.

Recent batches of the h-50 have been pretty sub standard aswell, they have been getting higher temps than the earlier ones for some reason...

Still your choice but just giving my experience of them

Thanks Nam,

though the megahalem won't fit in there because they are 129mm long and the gap is only 103mm on the board. With me having six sticks of ram, I can't have anything else there, so I would need the Armageddon. Keep in mind that I haven't bought my case yet, so there's still plenty of time for research.

I appreciate you replying though
Jim

Ahh devastation! Pretty insane getting 12Gb of that 2000Mhz stuff!

Hopefully you will find a great cooler, maybe the venomous-x will be the right size? It is meant to be slightly better than the megahalem. (I have no experience with it personally other than having it out of the box and looking at it though...)

Well I'm going the Corsair H50, I couldn't find the H70 available yet and I didn't want to wait a month, though I now have found a UK place that sells them, ah well.

Depending on performance, I might try ducting the radiator with a 120mm fan going to 80mm then a pipe through to the top exhaust. I'll certainly be taking pics of it all when I'm done. Just have to figure out if that will increase performance of the cooler much, or in general, keep everything cooler inside because there won't be ambient air

Hey Longie:

Look, just wanted to find out, what case do you want to get, or do you already have that?

Hey PunkNugget,

I haven't purchased it yet, though I have all the other parts either at home or on the way this week (if all goes well, can't always trust shipping companies!).

I was looking at the Lancool PC-K62 case, though I've heard it may have some issues if I decide to get a 3rd card and SLI it in regards to airflow, so I'm still looking around. I think a full sized tower might be a bit overkill though.

What I'm thinking about really is airflow. Will I have enough if I decide to get a third graphics card? I doubt I'll need one, though I also don't need 12Gb RAM either, but I like to be prepared
