Why does my CPU Multiplier Keep going down? - Page 3

post #21 of 36
Buy some RAM heatsinks and use them to cool the mosfets and you should be fine.

And OP I see that your vcore dropped from 1.3 to 1.225v. I still think MOSFETs are getting hot.

Take a look here.. I know that thread isn't well developed but it is someone with a Thuban having similar issues on a board that HAS MOSFET cooling.
So I should try making my H50 a exhaust fan, because if that would help I can do that. Based on what everyone is saying it's most likely the MOSFET's getting hot, I could probably go to a local BestBuy and buy that adjustable fan and point it directly at them. Would that help?

It wouldn't hurt to try cooling them.
Very true!

Was power management set for balanced or high performance?

Cool and quiet turns off @ 3.8GHz for some reason. When I was clocked @ 4.2GHz I used AMD overdrive for the cool and quiet features (I live with hippies). Just by running the AMD software it turned it back on and screwed with my power settings.

If all else fails try making your own power profile.

Yes to an extant but these will be a hell of alot better if you stuck them on with thermal pads or compund.

Yeah I have it on High and adjusted it to the best settings i could. Would something like this be OK to cool off the MOSFET's? http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Antec+-+...Fan&cp=1&lp=12

I wouldn't think a Spotcool would be sufficient enough. Given that you need to cool 10 MOSFETs that will get nice and toasty.

But yeah. Try to keep as much hot air out of your case as possible. As an experiment have the PC run Prime with the H50 the way it is, blowing hot air into your case and put your hand behind the fan. It should be very warm.

Now think about how much cooler all your components will be if that fan is blowing the hot air OUT of the case.

Not really efficient, you need a heatsink too for those MOSFETs(that will increase the cooling surface area)

Would it be best if I got those Copper Heatsinks and the SpotCool blowing Directly on them?

That would be a start.

I can't really attest to the performance of that fan though. Do you have any fans on the side panel? I would rather find a way to use a 120mm to cool them as the spotcool can only move 22CFM at full RPM.
