2600k: Anything above H70 overkill? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
God. CPUs clock so high this days.

And thinking that when I managed to get 4.2GHz stable on my bought-the-launch-day 1055T it was da shiz...

I bet a high end cooler, kinda like Silver Arrow + 2x Scythe GTs and decent airflow on the case will make that i7 be cool enough.

Water might be the perfect stuff for it, EK Supreme HF + 240 rad with an EX 4.0 pump... And that's all :-p


But a Silver Arrow will definitely be able to cool the beast down.

I think that 72.6C is the max TCASE_MAX Case temperature.

I found this interesting: Calculated Tj (assuming TjMax = 99C).
Under the fan profiles.

Here is all the thermal specifications: http://download.intel.com/design/pro...nex/324644.pdf

I wish Intel would just layout the specifications in an easier to read format.


IMO anything over the H70 (which is pushing it) is overkill with these new chips. These CPU's seem to hit a wall at ~4.6 - 4.8Ghz and start to need a lot more voltage to go higher. Even if you are able to overclock it to 5.5Ghz, and nice and chilly at 45C with a custom water loop it wont matter when you are running 1.65v through it.

I really always watercooled, but the person I am building the Sandy Bridge for just isn't capable of maintaing it.

I think the reason I choose the H70 over megahalems was the noise the ease of use as mentioned by previous posters. And it looks better IMO.

Edit: IDK y, but 1366 always seemed to overclock better for me at lower temps given the same voltage, but I do not believe this is the case with SB.

I would have to say yes, ideal temps for overclocking this chip are 15-20C. overclockability actually degrades when temps lower beyond the ones I posted.

say you can do 5ghz at 0C, maybe only 4.9ghz at -20C

I've got my H70 up and running on my 2600k...

2600k @ 4.4GHz @ 1.3v:

Load temps: 57,62,63,61 steady for 2+ hours on prime95.

I'm going to push it up 4.6 tomorrow, hopefully all I need is 1.35v

The H70 is definitely worth it!
