Fuh real, a lot of effort goes in to stuffing something like that into the R4!

It's all about point of view and priorities.

Car enthusiasts drool over Lambos and ****, even though their potential can't really be used under normal driving conditions on public roads.
Some people will say the extra hp and the associated fuel consumption is sheer waste of money, considering all you want is to get from point A to point B.

Food for thoughts.

I say thumb.gif for well executed setup.

Just a small update to my rig smile.gif I added red and black thumbscrews, carbon fiber to the psu and a red hdd activity led instead of the power led. I had planned on having all red thumbscrews but 3 out of the 7 I ordered weren't made correctly and didn't fit :/ so I went with red and black

I'm still having trouble getting decent pictures with the not so great camera I have but this is the best I could do tongue.gif

lol cry me a river.

lol wasted? I had nothing there to begin with. and believe me, its not even enough. the 400 made a 40 C degree diffrence. + the 280 15- 25 C diffrence. and yet I can pull temps 75-80 on really high voltage. easy. Besides it wasnt even expensive concidering the preformance/price gain/ vs h100i( for the price of two of h100i I can get way better preformance, more quiet, and can expaned it easy).. and about the gpu, it def need a block. thinking I might save for a better card.

the temp drops way faster too, so basicly its very quiet so the fans doesnt have to create alot of noise.

Overkill on OCN, is that even possible here? tongue.gif

Easy there killer, nobody's crying about anything.

I'm confused about how much those rads are cooling your chip though. Reading on Xtreme suggests a lot of chip to chip variance in temps and responsiveness to voltage adjustment, but are you saying that WITH the two rads you still get 75-80C at over 5.0?

(Just noticed that that was a 400mm rad... Which makes it even more amazing that an FX can get that hot.)

Is the contact between the processor and the base of the heatsink good? Poor seating / uneven surfaces can cause pretty high temperatures. I had to re-seat my H100i 5-6 times to get dramatically lower temperatures.

ahh good smile.gif

Yeah, chip variance is what I am thinking too. I keep reading folks who get 1.45V for 5ghz with the fx 8350. sure one can start the computer with it, but stable no way in my case. I need atleast 1.58V to get it stable. 5.2 about 1.65(for gaming and normal use 1.61), even higher if one needs it bulletproof stable. and yeah the temp are crazy high. I am starting to wonder if I got a bad batch. I followed the vishera overclocking guide on this site to get temp/volt down. but I still need such high voltage to keep it going. Would love to get my hands on a intel 3870x and do some clocking, seems like a gold chip that one with good overclocking abilities. read somewhere that fx 8350 needs like 500watt when clocked at 5ghz, the extreme heat would be explained by that. its 8 cores I guess they need alot of energy. Although I might be extremly wrong here, so dont take my word for it.

hmm, made a huge reply and I misunderstood. I cant say i had any problems with it. but im def gonna look into it. Im sure its fine, but wouldnt hurt to test some more. rather safe then sorry biggrin.gif

Yeah I only asked cause I kept getting poor temperatures, and every time I took off the heatsink and inspected how good or poor TIM distribution was (to see where contact was bad), it was very uneven, and contact was quite poor. I tried a rice grain in the center, two rice grains, tried spreading evenly and very thinly, tried applying more and spreading out. In my case, I think something needs lapping, because applying more actually helped a LOT, so there's an unevennes in the heatsink surface somewhere. If your temps are in line with what others are seeing at your voltage, then ok.
