AeroCool DCC-C1200

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm looking for some advices regarding my air cooler. I have an aerocool DCC-C1200 which you can fin here : http://www.overclockingstation.de/lu...dcc-c1200.html

And I wanted to know if with it I can really OC the Q8200 to 3.2 GHz
or even to 3.0GHz.

What I do Actually is 3dsmax and Vray Rendering .. I'm not really so attached to games but just for rendering process.

Actually I OC the CPU to 2.8 with 400Mhz FSB and its always the same temperature even in render still always between 45 and 52 and 68 and before I put the aerocool DCC I was using the stock cooler and it doesn't really support intensive OC.

The Q8200 is a 71C° max so I wanted to know if with my Aerocooler DCC-C1200 I can pump it up to 3.0 Ghz and higher without being afraid from damaging the MB or the cpu itself.

(and by the way I know how to deal with the Bios and the System)
The problem is that I did never use a cpu in OC before so I had no experience with the (temps clock etc... can things blow UP ? :s) LOL

If anyone used it or tested it before please help me with an answer.

Thank you in ADVANCE
Regard.

just overclock it and watch the temps of CPU.
use hwmonitor for monitoring CPU and MOFSET temp of MB and LINX or OCCT to stress your CPU

find out (on web) what is max voltage to your CPU so you will not go over this while OCing CPU.

Thank you for replying.

My cpu temp max is about 71.4°C

http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=36547

and when I over OCCit to 2.8 Ghz when it loads it is simply 45/52 temp
when I open 3dsmax or Photoshop and work with standard things no remarkable changes get surfaces unless I do an intensive glass Vray rendering for e.g then it goes up to 65/68 C° ... nothing more and it doesn't touch the 70 or 71 .. is it okay do you think if I keep it like that all the time or do I have to switch to normal Clocking when no need to OC ?

I dont do games just rendering when needed means I don't need OC when modeling 2.33 * 4 it's okay for me

Thank you
