I did have a look at other sandybridge threads and I think I got myself a really good chip
So what do you guys think, anything I should do differently or any volts that I shouldn't be changing or are the volts too high?
Man you got some great temps, i dunno why but my Core i7 2600k @ 5GHz with 1.44 Vcore runs really hot when I open up Prime95. I hit about 78 and the rest are 73-75 range. When I play games I don't get above 50C, what are your temps when playing games?
I can't see why I am getting such high temps while your getting under 70's. Keep in mind my W/C setup is similar to yours.
XSPC Rasa CPU Block
XSPC RX360 Radiator
XSPC Res/Pump X20 750
I know that the pump is not the best in this setup but I should still be getting over 1GPM with just cooling the CPU. Anyone know why I might be getting such high temps?
I should also mention I used Shin-Etsu X23-7783D, put a pea sized drop right in the middle of the CPU, I've tightened all the screws as tight as I could but one of the springs does not work properly so basically one screw might not be tightened down all the way. I have 3 fans (the ones that came stock) pushing air through the radiator in a push configuration.Edited by blazarcher - 4/3/11 at 1:44pm
