Safe temps for 2600k for 24/7 Folding@Home?

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I recently got an i7 2600k.

So far I have 2 OC's:

1. 4.6Ghz HT ON 1.3v - 65-68ºC while Folding
2. 4.8Ghz HT ON 1.34v - 67-72ºC while Folding

First of all, keep in mind my temps could be few degrees better, but my GTX460 is also doing 24/7 Folding@Home, therefor, it's giving all it's heat into my Noctua NH-D14.

Now, I heard Intel's max recommended is 72ºC...

As of now, I let it at 4.6Ghz until i hear more notice.

Should I keep it at 4.8Ghz for Folding@Home 20 hours a day at around 70-72ºC? Is it safe?

or should I keep it at 4.6Ghz for Folding@Home 20 hours a day at around 65-68ºC?

That extra 200mhz probably doesn't make a huge difference in PPD, so I would just keep it at 4.6ghz for the better/safer temps.

Here's my current OC:

I was able to lower the offset voltage to +0.50 so that makes it 1.28v-1.288v.

Looks like this will be my 24/7 OC for Folding@Home and anything else basically, max temps:

64ºC
57ºC
58ºC
54ºC

I feel happy now devil-smiley-019.gif

Not really a solution:

- Can't find that kit in Germany
- Don't have money right now, I spend it all on my SSD, my GTX460 for Physx, my 2600k, my motherboard, my case... etc tongue.gif

Although I'm really looking forward to buy one those in future.

WEll, I'm really looking forward to WatarCooling, but with my new beautiful case, not sure if it has a nice place for a WC Loop tongue.gif

Plus I'm happy with my Noctua NH-D14, I think I will be staying on air biggrin.gif

Have you placed the D14 vertically? if so, can't you just remove the memory cooler-fins and place it horizonally so it won't pick up the heat from your gpu?

Here's how I have it:

It's not literally picking the air from my GPU's, but I bet some heat/air from my GTX460 and my HD5970 are going into the Noctua tongue.gif

But I don't mind, my temps are good enough tongue.gif
