what do you guys think ? should i keep pushing? - Page 2

Especially with the tower cooling, be sure to add VRM cooling before attempting any processor OC.

This might also help with CPU temps - since VRM heat cannot radiate at all with no heatsinks & airflow, it'll spread along the motherboard towards the CPU socket and heat the CPU up more.

Hi guys I already have 650w thermaltake install ha.. I know that my 400w wasn't sufficient .. Thanks for the heads up but what the other guy said is that this power supply sucks... And for 105 dollars I think it's too much if it ain't that good..
Ehh..

max temp load 60c

idle temp 34c

didnt mess with the cpu/nb so thats next to overclock.

And for the ram I left it at 1333 timings 6-7-6-19.

can this cpu hit the big 4.0 on air cooling ? I think this cpu is bottlenecking my video card i recently purchased. Asus 560Ti..

any help or pointers very appreciated
AMD cpu with an air cooler is not to recommend to go to high or you will burn it btw you can try with a cpu cooling water and it will lower the temperature like 50% less
