Extremely disappointed 1055t, 215 max FSB - Page 3

post #21 of 37
MOSFETs are to the left of the CPU socket. Those 5 gray squares are what needs to be heatsinked. Not sure if it would work well but newegg sells tiny copper heatsinks I think. Those might help.http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=572&name=Memory-Chipset-Cooling&Page=2

Substantially incorrect. Those are the inductors (chokes) they do NOT need heatsinked, their function is to clean the power i.e. stabilize fluctuations in current/voltage

It is the MOSFETs that need cooled, as they are converting DC current. As MOSFETs get hotter, their electrical output becomes more and more unstable-and the are prone to thermal runaway.

OP, see what I have highlighted in the attached image. I do not believe the chips in line with those circled need cooled-however I'm not sure how this VRM is designed-regardless the cylindrical caps and the squares (inductors) labeled "1R2" are NOT what need cooled.

Thank you.

So should I be buying passive heatsinks for them then?

The RAM I backed down to 1.6v for now well see how stable it runs, then tommorow with my Hyper 212 - I will back it down again.

Is there any timings I can screw around with, lower the 9-9-9 settings? Is there a how-to guide for RAM?

The problem is your generic/1333 CL9 RAM and the Hyper 101A CPU heatsink.
Both will hold back your overclock

I have generic RAM that I OC the timings on to 8-8-8-21. But even memory at stock I can hit 4.0 on my 790FX.
post #25 of 37
My bad on implying your bios wasn't up to date, I did miss the usb3 feature.

Only because I don't see where it's been mentioned, have you tried moving your memory to different slots ? I don't see it in your mb manual, but several m4a manuals will suggest if your using 1600 or want to oc, you should populate the "blue slots". I know my board is picky, I need my two sticks to be in the blue slots to push my 1333. Just a thought..

Yes, one grain of rice, and a nice and easy mount when you get your 212+. Don't push her too hard as others have explained w/out some cooling on those MOSFETs.

Now I got another problem. So I put on the Hyper 212+, with very little thermal grease. Under load (prime95 64), Vcore is about 1.24-1.25 @ 3500mhz and not crashing, but temps are around 51-52*.

As soon as they hit those though, the processor goes to 7.5 multiplier, and back to 1800 mhz. Then just goes back and forth. I have all that stupid C1E and CnQ disabled, so I don't know what is going on.

Is 51*C still too hot for 1.25v @ 3500mhz? I don't know what is going on, my god.
post #27 of 37
The chip hitting its thermal limit and throttling down. What is the ambient temp where you are? And did you take the plastic off the heatsink before mounting it?

I think it's your board. I wouldn't stick a 6core on that thing, let alone overclock it.

lol, Yes I took the plastic off. I built the computer myself I am not that duh.

The board in big letters says 140w CPU compatible, isn't running at such a low voltage more than likely within that limit? So I did all this and need a new Mobo....tragic. Wouldn't mosfet heatsinks do it then?

Btw, it isn't the CPU hitting thermal limit at 50*, alot of people are running mid upper 50's and like 1.5v. I don't see 50* being that bad....still some kind of anomaly or something.
post #30 of 37
Whats your NB frequency that board wont handle much of an increase from 2000.

(Im not picking on you here-stating facts)
bad case, CPU cooling, RAM and mobo all contributing to your heat issues, probably seated fine cant be certain though..........

Sounds like you have to settle on low OC, by the way any air cooler is gonna struggle with low airflow through the case, which I'm assuming is a problem with only two 120mm fans in a CM330.

Good luck
