Also have you tried mounting your heatsink to were it blows up?.
What he should do is switch the fans around so they are either both intake or exhaust and not fighting with each other for air. Front-> rear airflow setup is usually better, rear -> front can work as well. It seems a rear -> front setup may work well consideirng the nearby top exhaust fan in a good location.

Well due to temps, I changed from X19 to X18. This brings me back to a 3.6GHz. With that I hold stable at 54.5c during Prime 95 testing. Ran it for 2 hours last night and she held there.

At X19 she would climb into 62c very fast and keep going. I tried taking voltage from 1.400v to 1.375 but I was not stable during the 3.8Ghz OC. I'm going to try for a X18.5 with 1.375v today when I get off work, and see if that can get me into 3.7ghz with acceptable temps. Still need to work on reducing those temps during prime 95 testing.

I might just be one of those unlucky ones Mobe, I read it's hit or miss sometimes. So Guess mine just heats up bad. I did change the fan to both be pushing towards the rear exhaust fan.

Question,

My top exhaust fan was plug into the 3 prong on my mobo located near the CPU. I put the extra fan into that slot and moved the plug into another 3 prong at the bottom of the mobo. However it does not work, am I missing something? Cause my front inlet fan is hooked upto a 3 prong directly next to it and it works like a champ. This has me rather frustrated and confused.

Where is the smart fan control located normally?
post #137 of 145

Found it, I turned it off, Did not find a option to increase fan speed. Is it normally there if smart fan is there? I seen all the current speeds. But was unable to tweak any of it.

Hello again, what settings do i need for the Vdroop to stop in Nvidia Core Calibration?

These are the options it allows.
"Auto" "Off" "All Cores" and "Per Core"

when i select "All cores or Per Core" i get an option list with percentages that range from -12% to +12%. I tried toying with them setting it to -12% first but no change occurred, still 0.04v drop then i changed it to +12% and still the Vdroop.

I turned it off and the same thing happened

I found the connector I need. I'll be buying that tomorrow so I can have all my fans working. I'll also try and find zip ties! Cause Electrical tape will only last so long >_> Plus it ruins my good looking case I worked so hard to make clean.
