Interesting. So, you just changed that option in the initial BIOS screen and your CPU is running 4.4Ghz? Cool. I never really messed with that screen, myself. Did you then check in the Advanced BIOS to see if it did indeed change your Turbo or CPU Ratio? I would also wonder what it's doing with your Vcore Offset and ATV.
Either way, you're system does seem to be overclocked (according to CPU-Z). Whether you should mess with it from there is up to you, but I'm gonna go ahead and figure you could manage to find a better setting yourself manually than most any "Auto-OC" system. It may even be pushing the BCLK, which is rather limited with the way it affects everything else. If nothing else, you may be able to run stable with a lower Vcore @ 4.4Ghz, giving you lower temps.
On the CM 212+, I had read that one fan pulling is better than one pushing. I had saw it said a few times, so I just went with it. That, and the Blade Master that came with my CM 212+ was already fitted with the clips on the side of the fan that air flows from. I then figured it was what CoolerMaster had in mind, too. The fan that came with the 212+ exhausts air on the side with the silver sticker, but a Blade Master purchased seperately has that sticker on the intake side.
My only wonder there is whether the pushing fan would then be able to force air through the heatsink low enough to be most
effective. After all, the bottom of the heatsink would get the hottest, right? Just speculating.
Oh, almost forgot. You should really cross-reference temp readings between a few different programs IMO. I'd suggest checking HWMonitor and
RealTemp at a minimum, but you should ignore what are obviously unreal readings (i.e. Speedfan shows down to 10c for me! LOL). At first, I noticed Probe had a relatively lower temp than my cores on average of 5-10c with other programs. I did finally
realize that it actually was merely showing my coolest core's temp, which is always core 1 for me.Edited by Rezard - 3/31/11 at 12:18pm
