Problems with i7 980x overclock - Page 3

post #21 of 64
lolwat. youre using stock cooling and ocing a 980x to 4.1? dosent matter if its doable, having 100c temps and denying you need an aftermarket cooler is just not right.

so much lulz in this thread.

get a good aftermarket cooling solution.

The 980X stock cooler is actually not half-bad but loud, as mentioned earlier. I don't have it on my 980X (it's under water) but I do have it on a 920 @ 4.0 GHz and it keeps it in the mid-70s at 100% load (folding), and with the windows open (it's winter), in the mid- to high-60s.

I'd try reapplying thermal paste and reseating the cooler. I had the hardest time trying to screw it in tightly but I've been spoiled by CPU water blocks.

Also, I'd heed the suggestions about lowering vcore to between 1.3 and 1.35 (though you shouldn't need 1.35 for 4.0GHz), and raising QPI/VTT to between 1.25 to 1.30. I have my 980X @ 4.2 GHz (168X25) w/ 1.3 vcore/1.28 qpi.

You can get a Megahalem for about $50 now some places, Just spend the extra $50 if you don't want watercooling and you'll be fine.

This.

I'm sorry but the stock 980X cooler is utter garbage as far as I'm concerned. It's better than all the other stock coolers (I'll give it that) but still nothing worthy of keeping a 980X cool on an OC let alone past 4.0...

This made me giggle a little.

However, 100C temps sounds more like you mounted the cooler incorrectly than anything.

I would suggest FIRST re mounting the cooler and try running a benchmark to test the temps at stock speeds before spending any money.

I don't think my problem is not having a cooler, i didn't change qpi/vtt settings just Vcore. I'm not even sure what the right settings are for 4.1GHz.

When i used 1.35 Vcore it was unstable.

I plan on getting a cooler but it's not like i'm trying to do anything impossible without one.
yeah some people are quite rude. what ram and bios settings are you using? i was pretty suprised at the effort intel put into that cooler, it maybe alright until you get your aftermarket one, sounds like something is not right

I have ordered a Cooler Master V10, i never said i wasn't going to get a cooler i just didnt think of it when i bought PC and I wasn't planning to overclock.

Anyways what i don't understand regardless of temperatures - why does my CPU seem to need 1.38 Vcore to maintain a stable 4.13GHz? It seems stable but i can't run 3DMark CPU tests at 1.30 - 1.35 Vcore.

And when it is 4.13GHz it's not 100c under load it's only in 60s-70s, everyone kinda missed the point, it's only one certain point in Black Ops for about a second when it goes to 100c. All other benchmarks it's 80 max.

Cancel that order, v10 is crap, buy yourself Something useful. Just because its expensive doesnt mean its good, I suggest u Learn to overclock before u got Throwing arround 1000$... get something like a Noctua ND-14...the guys here will be able to tell u ALL about them and similar products

I overclocked my Q6600 and video/ram plenty and never had a problem, the V10 is not crap i have seen the results for myself.

If you don't have anything helpful to say please don't make any suggestions/assumptions.

yeah but what are your bios settings? cant help unless we know what they are at now? and your mobo/ram/etc, it does seem like a lot

V10 is crap if you consider what you get for the amount of money you pay.

While it's not a terrible cooler, for less than $120 you can get a megahalem/venx (proven to be one of the top coolers if you go by all the tests) + 2 fans for a push/pull configuration and I guarantee you it will trump all over the V10.
