Sandy Bridge owners, take note - Page 9

post #81 of 185
Check out my post here.

I did get an answer to the voltage rise using offset w/ LLC (duh) but I was able to lower my manual cpu voltage from 1.275 down to 1.26 after I dropped CPU PLL to 1.55v and hadn't changed anything else. Temps remained the same, however.

Thoughts?

Hehe, just saw this . I would never hang that POS D14 off my mobo. You guys get all offended because the h50 and h70 exist. All the guys claiming the D14 beats an h70 refer to some review where they used a test bench. Of course the D14 beats the h70 on a test bench, it's not suffocating in its' own exhaust. Put each of them inside a case and then see what happens. You act as if you're some sort of BMOC with your D14, but as others have said, everybody here with custom watercooling stomps a mud hole in your crappy air cooler, and mine to for that matter. Ditch the cockiness - it's so pointless. Nobody here wishes they had your D14.

The d-14 is pretty new, so what would have been the better option the Megahalem? vs the h50 they trade blows only a C or two between them.

Do you feel better cause your d-14 is better? because for a little more there is the rasa kit, there is always a step up I'm just trying to understand what the hate is about.
Thanks

I couldn't be happier with my temps. 56-62-65-62 load 2hr prime. I would recommend this rx360 kit to EVERYONE... it's so cheap and the results are very impressive. I did upgrade the pump, but I wanted to make sure flow was good for cpu and gpu in loop.

The kit is good but i'll say to build your own water cooling loop. It might be a little more expensive but if you do it right you won't have to upgrade. RX360 rad is one of the best out there and the water block too, but pump (and reservoid) would have to be replace. You could always disable the pump from the reservoir but it won't give you a clean look. Cheap fan and tubing, might aswell get 3 gentle typhoon for good air flow and super silent.

If you want a nice looking water cooling solution also get some tubins and compression fitting. Don't use crappy aftermarket liquid cooling, just buy distilled water and pt nuke for your loop.

You actually get a RS240 or RS360 rad i believe, the kit is fairly mid range all around but the value of all the components together are unmatched all separate would cost you much more. The pump is more than enough for the loop.

That said these are not parts i would pick outright besides the block. You have to look at the value of things tho the block is ~$60 the pump/res ~$70 that's $130 right there plus you get a rad fittings fans no matter how mediocre it's just value.

PT nuke and distilled is the way to go but compressions meh there purely cosmetic cause 7/16" over half inch barbs isn't going anywhere.

no, now rasa is selling its 360 kit with a RX360 too. i saw it for $199 in crazypc i know it can be had for lower price. This is actually a better buy than the swiftech 220 which cause a little more

I'd go with an RX360 kit from Jab-tech.

240 is more than enough for a cpu only loop.

The 360 is slightly better, not much though, but would perform even better if you added a graphics card in there later on like I did.

I already have my t line in place, later this year when it warms up if I grab another gtx 470 + block I'll be getting a 480 rad anyways and possibly a new pump if the res/pump can't handle it I'll just t-line to save a buck (like $20-$60 bucks).

i ordered a rx240 kit from jabtech recently... gonna use some slightly smaller ID primochill tubing and run it with stock pump for the time being... I cant fit a 360 internally in my case so i figured when I upgrade i will likely be moving to a bigger case...

I couldnt rationalize dropping almost 500 dollars for a custom loop and gpu blocks.

Actually had to RMA one of the 460s today so ill likely just run them til they drop


On another note: Anyone hear of any 2500k/2600k's dying yet ? Like because of voltage and not user error/defects ?

Im tempted to push for 5.0 when the watercooling gets installed, but Im hesitant to push 1.45+ volts into this thing. Im not gonna bother trying to get another one... If its out of reach 4.8 will have to do.

Nobody on OCN - even those of us running 1.5v or more have had our chips die or require more voltage for the same clocks.

I am setting up some lower clocks though and saving them to a usb drive.

Did 4.2 and 4.4 so far, working on 4.6, which sadly need 1.35v
