Should I risk OCing this 955? - Page 6

post #51 of 54
62 C* is the Highest Safe temp, meaning dont go above or it will burn you chip. And i would invest into a Hyper 212+ as its similiar to that heatsink but has more heat-pipes and is a good bit better. In my case i idle around 31-32 and max load is 48 C* With My OC, so something is wrong if that is at stock settings.

BTW, my voltage is jsut for stability it runs perfectly fine at 1.425 but i like to make sure everything runs stable so i put it to 1.475.

Did you read the bit where I said it's been getting to 35C consistently here?

It's 7:30AM and outside temp is 26C. I am buying a VenX. Not a Hyper212+

Yes I did read that, but still, Air-Conditioner. JK.

But a VenX is similiar to a Hyper 212+ in design so my point still stands, and since you are getting it thats taken care of.

The most i would go for until you get the VenX or it gets cooler is around 3.4 or so, as long as you are under 60 C under load.

I tried 3.4, but it was unstable with NB at 2.2, and the NB was unstable at 2.4, wouldn't boot at 2.6. I'll see what I can do when I have more time.

It was a little cooler today so here's hoping
