What should I push for when the NH-D14 comes in?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Right now, I've got my 950 stable at 4 ghz at 1.232 volts. I'm swapping out my crappy Arctic freezer pro for a Noctua NH-D14, and switching thermal compounds, from the MX-2 Pad to arctic silver 5. What should I push for as a stable, 24/7 overclock?

Well if the Noctua is a better cooler, obviously something higher.

You have a feel around and keep pushing until you find something that's higher but also as stable as what your running now! Or you could even underclock it *hairs stand on end* to a lower speed from you current 4Ghz and enjoy the lower temps, then overclock to a higher speed to enjoy the performance for gaming etc. Or you could go all out and have it running at 4.3-4.4Ghz.

I can get mine up to 4.3/4.4Ghz running great, so that might be a place to start.

what sort of voltage is going into your chip?

At those clocks? 1.35 if I remember correctly. I downclocked it to just 4 so I don't have to worry about temps while folding, I'm a bit paranoid. lol

AS5 takes a couple of weeks to set properly, according to the company's own website. Other than than, you should expect a shocking improvement over your FP7. I did.

not sure about the oc but switch to mx-4, as5 really sucks compared to alot of other pastes as its conductive and needs to cure, not to mention mx-4 spreads way easier than as5

Well, I have my Vcore at 1.24375, not talking vdroop here, and I'm comfortable running this system in the low to mid 70s, so perhaps 4.2, maybe 4.4 if my chip doesn't need above 1.35 volts to get there (which I understand is unlikely)

Why do you want to use AS5? The TIM that noctua provides with all their heatsinks (NT-H1) is just as good (or maybe better) as it...... using it on my i7 920, the outside (cpu sensor that isnt in the cores) of my CPU idles at room temperature while the actual cores idle less than 18C above room temp. (current room temp 18C, cores ~35C)

My i7: 3.8GHz 191x20 ~1.25v, EIST and halt-state enabled

I think my instability was RAM related, which I'm taking care of soon, but I think an OC like mine would be pretty stable, at least it was for 24/7 folding. You can probably push it higher than 4.2 but be sure to do stress testing to make sure it's relatively stable and then play around with it if some instability shows up
