Increase STOCK cooling on Dual-Core

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Just did something interesting...I noticed the STOCK cooler fan ran at 1200 to 1400...but my case fans ran at 2700...so I unscrewed the STOCK fan and replaced it with an 80 MM case fan.....got 8 degrees C more cooling...went from 46 fully loaded to 38 fully loaded running OCCT....thot this might help some of the OC'ers that have STOCK coolers...TY

Yes this is one of the odd things about stockness. Why would a company sell you somthing that sucks just so you'll replace it and void the warrany? But good job on the temp decrease!

MFG. made stock fan just for normal use. they're not making for OC purposes and the stock fan RPM so low, did blow that good as a aftermarket one
post #5 of 19
i maybe wrong here but how did you get OCCT to 100% cpu usage with dual core? i spent ages and couldnt get it to work, would only put 100% on 1 core and only 50% overall usage??
Can you get it to work? as i must admit i do prefer OCCT over Prime95 as it gives more details at the end? if you aint done any thing to it you may want to run 2 Prime 95s to get your proper load temps im sure they will be considerably more

Yeah that's the downside to OCCT. I tried switching the stock fan with my 80mm but It was too large, I could only screw one side in. How did you put yours on Smitty?

OCCT does only do 1 core but it was an example of the added cooling effect I got.....as for putting it on...I unscrewed the stock fan and the holes matched up exactly...if you check you might have been trying to put a 90 mm fan on it.....the 80 mm fan fits perfectly on it...hope this helps...TY

no its all i ment was if your CPU is at 46, well was at 46c at 50% usage it think when it got to 100% that would be dangerously hot?

but as you put the new fan on that seems ok

I use the stock heatsink that came with my SD, but I did replace the fan on it with an 80mm SilverStone 94cfm fan. I had to zip tie it to the heatsink since it was bigger. Good job on the temp decrease! lol.

well I now run 42 to 44 fully loaded...that's both cores loaded to the max....and I'm at 2.7 Ghz right now...completely stable...Idles at 30 to 32.....was idleing at 38 before the fan change...so I think for 500 Mhz over stock that's pretty good...
