anyway. have you tried remounting the h50? seems a bit high from what ive seen people do with SB. other than that try going full WC?
Yeah, they didn't mention what AVX does to temps in all that Sandy Bridge pre-release worship. They made it sound like you could do 5GHz w/HT On with nothing but a CM 212+ (I'm being very sarcastic by the way - just in case you couldn't tell)! Anyway, the (modded) h50 is working perfectly well. It does a superb job with everything else. It's just the nature of AVX. I'm just waiting for the first wisecrack to claim his NH-D14 handles LinX and AVX perfectly fine
. This is definately a job for custom WC only.
To Cory1234, I'm not currently running 1.3v, that's for 4.6GHz. Currently I'm running 4.8GHz @ 1.34v with HT disabled - better for FSX. But yes, your probably right either way as I've heard several other people say AVX and LinX requires more voltage. "Problem" is that at 4.8GHz, I can't even handle temps well enough to even perform stability testing. I quote problem because I don't really care seeing as how nothing I do can possibly stress my computer the way this does. I never really optimized my voltage for my 4.8GHz setting, either though.Edited by cmeeks - 2/22/11 at 7:47pm
