i7 950@4.41 - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Try lowering your vcore!! That is a pretty high vcore I'm sure you ll be able to run at 4.4 ghz stable with lower vcore.

I think I will drop down the overclock to 4.2 and then reduce teh vcore and the QPI voltages and see what that does for the temps. I cant keep 4.41 and reduce the vcore though as I cant get the machine stable when running the Intel Burn tests with a lower VCORE.
Your best bet is to back it down to 4.2-4.3 It is not worth it with the amount of Vcore you are putting through it.

18 Hours of prime95 last night @ 4.21GHz with HT on and I never passed 59C. Must be something wrong with your PC man.

isnt your rad bigger tho? he is also pushing almost 1.5v into the cpu also.


Edit: why not reseat your WB and see if that might help instead of just tightening it first.

Well yeah, I've got one extra fan, there's no reason to push almost 1.5v into a CPU that's 45nm. I want my PC to run like it does now 5 years from now.

What EK block do you have, if you installed the block correctly and installed the standoffs as well than you can tighten it all the way down, that's how I have mine, no motherboard flex here.

So I reduced the overclock to 4.2 and reduced my vcore to 1.328v under load. It has passed the Intel Burn test (18 passes) with the temps not exceeding 71 degrees (core 1=71, core 2=69,Core 3=67,core 4=67). I think this proves 2 things
  1. My water block is connected properly
  2. The limit of my particular CPU is around 4.41GHz as it is taking so much voltage to keep it stable at that frequency

@dcshoejake I have an EK block with the standoffs installed so it is good advice about tightening the springs. That being said I normally replace most of my PC every 18 months so if I kill the CPU with too much voltage it is not the end of the world and a good excuse to my girlfriend as to why I am buying a new CPU.

Obviously I dont want to destroy the parts unnecessarily though so i appreciate everyones help.

This water cooling stuff is quite interesting and addictive. Im thinking of adding a 240 rad to the front of my case and putting my GTX470 under water as well.

you guys inspire me :-)

What kind of fans are you running? I may be cheating with my Ultra Kaze 3K fans

EDIT: Its addicting, I'm ordering a chipset block from another member and I'm thinking about adding 2 140mm rads, like I need them

More sexy tubing

I`m running SAN ACE 120mm 2400RPM forced down to 1000RPM with my fan controller to reduce noise. I have three of them connected in a pull config on my rad. I dont know much of the details of the fans because I live in Japan and so picking the stuff is often arbitrary. I dont read Japanese and so just pick the ones with the highest numbers. It could say "Amount of idiots that buy this product" and i`d be all over it if it is a high number. lol
