It could say "Amount of idiots that buy this product" and i`d be all over it if it is a high number. lol
Lol, the UK fans packaging is all Japanese (or Chinese ).

It takes balls (or a deaf guy) to run his fans max all the time. Haha.

One Japanese word I do know though is KAZE. It means wind or cold so quite a good name for a fan, especially if it is an ultra kaze. :-)

100% Japanese if it is using the word "kaze" in the name

A Chinese fan would last 4 minutes and then need replacing.

Only the CPU is cooled in this loop but I am wondering if my EK CPU block is mounted correctly or it needs to be on tighter. I dont want to damage the PCB of the mobo by making it too tight you see.
I disagree with most posts in this thread (don't take it personal). Your temps are realistic
I have a i7 950 @4,34 ghz, and 1,47 vcore. Anything lower and the pc won't run stable 24/7. Don't forget no to chips are identical in terms of oc. I can't get 4,4 like you can without extreme amounts of vcore and heat. If I run prime95 for an hour, my hottest core is 84 degrees celsius. I think that's ok considering that not even under folding will your temps ever go that high.

I read through this thread and said "Wait. What?" Several times. There are alot of people positing speculation up top and honestly most of them were wrong.

This is honestly the best post of the thread.


My stability log:
170x24=4.089 vcore=1.28750 qpi/dramV=1.20625 Temps=57°C
180x23=4.140 vcore=1.30000 qpi/dramV=1.20625 Temps=59°C
190x23=4.380 vcore=1.40625 qpi/dramV=1.25000 Temps=66°C
195x23=4.492 vcore=1.48125 qpi/dramV=1.31875 Temps=74°C
200x23=4.610 vcore=1.55000+ qpi/dramV=1.31875 Temps=77°C (*1.55+ means I needed more vcore than the absolute max so I stopped. This wasn't stable)

Please note that my temps are with the following setup:

XSPC RX360 Rad with 8xYate Loon Mediums--->XSPC Rasa CPU Block---> MCP355 Pump with XSPC Res Top---> Repeat


The new loop has a 5870 block after the CPU block, but these temps were recorded without the 5870 in the loop.


The temps are slightly high, but I would check to make sure you are using only a rice sized piece of tim in the center. Crank down the pressure all the way that you can go without using power tools. (screwdrivers/allenwrenches are fine)


The whole BS about your vcore being too high is garbage. Most people can't hit 4.4ghz let alone use the vcore it requires due to temps. Ignore them. Honestly, you're in the right range. 1.55v is the absolute maximum and you aren't even above 1.5v yet.

Absolute Max for 45nm Core i7=1.55v
Absolute Max for 45nm Core 2=1.45v (The guy with the q9550 comment is irrelivant anyway)

Also temps wise, you are realistically fine but I would like you to still try to get them lower just for a better overclock. For me, my personal limit is 90°C sustained but you won't throttle (read as you throttle before you do damage) until 100°C.

This is something I like about this forum. There are disagreements, but no flaming. Its refreshing and encourages experimentation.

At the moment Ive decided to scale back to 4.2GHz because of the lower temps. Im going to put my GTX470 under water tomorrow so want the extra thermal capacity for that. Will try and get my CPU back up to 4.41 once the GPU is stable.
