Whats AMD C1E? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
It is an enhanced idle state.

Overclock with it off.
Then turn it back on.
If the system is still stable, you can leave it on.
Once again...

Id be super careful lapping the AMD stock coolers, apparently they are hollow and very thin. I never even used Mine, it went in the bin before I installed anything. AS5 takes a fair amount of time to cure for only 2 or 3C drop, I would go for MX3 or ICS next time if you can find it.

AS5 performs very well without being cured, anyway, cooler has been lapped already

I stopped using AS5 when I found out about ICS. Good luck with your Oc and that stock cooler. Fan speed on max.biggrin.gif

yeh biggrin.gif tbh idm a bit of noise, and its really not that bad to be honest. Ill pm you stress test prime 95 with speed at max and cpu at stock (btw im so happy i went with 8+2 power phase on the gigabyte instead of 6+2 on the asus)

Indeed, 8+2 is really needed for the 10 series, or you could end up with burnt up mosfets like the MSI boards. Its partly the reason I bought my GB board, massive power phase.

Here's an idea, before you go silly overclocking, pop off the original board heat sinks and replace the stock TIM with AS5, don't do the mosfets they have thermal pads and be careful when you remove the sink from the mosfets that you don't tear the thermal pad or you'll need new ones.

ahh good ol msy, last time I got anything from them it was super cheap DDr2 Corsair Dominator D9's.

I would go for the Noctua u12-P SE Special edition. I have one and loved it on my 955C3, they are slowly coming down in price too and come with two good noctua fans for push pull.
The key with AMD cooling it getting the right cooler that faces the right way, some will send air flowing up and out of the case while others will send it out the back.
