Worth it to upgrade from the Hyper212+ to the Silver Arrow?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
What kind of temp drop under load should I be expecting?

Right now I'm sitting at a cool 80C under load from Prime95. Gets up to 90C under Intelburn.

I have my i7 950 OCed to 4370MHz HT off.

Should I decrease the OC to decrease temps further or is 80C fine?

I know Intel CPUs can run hot but I'm not sure what degradation effect 80C under Prime95 would do? It never even goes above 65C in real life usage.

Your temps are fine. I wouldn't upgrade, but everyone has their own opinion on just how much overclock they need.

Hell, if it were me, I'd back off to 4.1-4.2 and enjoy. Why spend another 70-80 dollars to essentially do what you're already doing?

I couldnt get above 4.0 1.25v without peaking above 81c with the hyper 212+

Ended up going with the H70 and temps dropped to 66c with the same settings.

60dB constant would make me

I'm not sure how loud the CM Blademaster fan (included with the Hyper212+) is but it's annoying at full speed after an hour.

I'm thinking of getting some San Aces 1011 and calling it a day but a pair of San Aces is already $40+ at that price I might as well spring for a Silver Arrow.

I replaced my Hyper 212 Plus with a Silver Arrow and I'm very happy with the results. I'm unlucky in the fact that my i7 920 D0 is a wattage whore. It would run stable with 1.2675volts @4.0Ghz, but Linx would raise temps to 92°C I'm only @75°C full load with the Silver Arrow @ 27°C ambient. I'm like you, loud fans are not an option.

If I read your post right you went from 92ºC to 75ºC while running Linx after making the switch?

Those temps are not fine.

I'd say upgrade
