Aiming to get my 980x to 4.0GHz + - Page 11

I'll run memtest tonight when I get home from work, once I find a stable setup I might go back to stock until I replace my waterblock.

Here is my plan for later.

Run memtest and p95 for a few hours on blend, and see what happens, if it passes those ok, ill assume its stable, then I will try and tweak, ill lower the QPI/VTT until its unstable and go from there.

Sound like a sensible plan of action?

Correct once you run memtest and establish that your memory is stable then prime should be easy to tweak to pass. Just remember sometimes one cpu needs more or less QPI/VTT than others I myself use 24/7 @ 1.435 for 4.5GHz I have seen others higher. Now the lower uncore freq you use the less QPI/VTT you should need and able to overclock better = higher clocks.

Now I'm off for some much needed sleep......

Looks like it worked then

Yeah it worked :-)

Rad is 360, loop goes as follows-

I always like to go straight from Pump - CPU - you have max pressure in waterblock. Becuase you are going pump - rad - you are going to have a small pressure drop across it.

So my system goes Pump - CPU - GPU - Rad - Res - Pump. Probably makes little difference but thats the way I always thought of it.

The temps are what keeps confusing me, I keep reading about people having lower temps than me, on air! But so long as it isn't dangerous, ill just make do until I can afford/be bothered to but a new waterblock

The way you have your loop setup is good because you want the coolest water hitting the block pressure really has nothing to do with having the pump-CPU because there you aren't getting the coolest water you are getting basically water cycled from the pump which has heat from pump. Having it come from rad to cpu to res to pump back to res then cpu is good way of doing it. I think I just confused myself lol but the way you are doing it is good.

I know you don't want to reseat your water block but it might be good to make sure that you put enough thermal or not too much (just a rice grain) and make sure you clean off old thermal. Either way from testing there is only a 2c-3c difference in how you set up loop so no biggie

The only reason I don't wanna reseat it, it cause I have doubts about it going back on again, the threads are already partly stripped, which is what make me think that's what's causing my slightly high temps
