Edit: Getting to 4.2 Ghz stable - Page 3

post #21 of 59
Excellent! You should always investigate the simplest possible causes first.

As for fans, the Gentle Typhoons are a favorite, but almost impossible to find right now. I really like the S-FLEX series. They are fairly quiet and have great static pressure. Which one do you have? The G is a 1900 RPM fan. I have also seen other members recommending the Yate Loons and the NB Noiseblockers.

You need to read this great fan review by ehume...

I know, but in the heat of the moment I kept thinking it was everything but a failed fan. i definitely felt like a jackass when I found out.

Thank for the link to that great guide. The thing that sucks is I can't mount 120x33mm fan because the limited room on my motherboard so I have to find the best possible 120x25mm for the megahalems, and I'm also going to change my exhaust fan. I'm thinking about going with a Yate Loon D12SH-12 for the heatsink. What do you think I'm willing to go a lil louder than my old fan (Scythe SY1225SL12SH).

Don't worry about it. We've all been there.

I don't have any experience with the Yate Loon's, but I hear that they seem to be the best value for that type of performance. And, of course, I have some more links for ya...

Thanks for the help B-Con. I'm gonna go to SVC in the next 30 minutes to pick something up so I'm reading that guide like a madman. I see a lot of positive stuff on the Yate Loon because of their performance and value, but what do you recommend if the price doesn't matter, I just want to find the best fan possible regardless of the price, it's not like I buy heatsink fans everyday.

Also do you think a Scythe SY-1225SL12SH would be a good exhaust fan, I can't do push/pull so this fan would be exhausting from the back of my pc, right next to the heatsink.

Edit: http://www.svc.com/d12sh-124ub.html

I think I'm about to pick these up, they're the D12SH-12 model but with blue led's. Not sure about exhaust fan yet

SVC seems to have just about everything when it comes to fans. Since the GT's are out of stock, you can't go wrong with the Yate Loons. Personally, I only have experience with the S-Flex's, which I like very much for heatsinks. Just remember, you want high static pressure in a heatsink fan.

The Slipstream you mentioned is a good case fan. I would try to choose the highest CFM with the lowest dB level when choosing the case fan.

In my opinion, I would stick to manufactures like Yate Loon, Scythe, NB Noiseblocker, Cooler Master, Noctua, or Delta.

Hopefully, someone working there, will be able to guide you better than I can.

Hey thanks again for all your help I'm on my way out to pick up the fans. I decided to get the Scythe SY-1225SL12SH for exhaust 110.31 CFM/37 dBA and the Yate Loon D12SH-124UB for the Megahalems.

Turn off hyper threading and you'll get better temps.

If you can recall your BSOD code, your BSOD was most likely caused because your overclock is unstable. Here's a BSOD code list to help you determine what you need to do to get your OC stable.
0x101 = increase vcore
0x124 = increase/decrease QPI/VTT first, if not increase/decrease vcore...have to test to see which one it is
0x0A = unstable RAM/IMC, increase QPI first, if that doesn't work increase vcore
0x1A = Memory management error. It usually means a bad stick of Ram. Test with Memtest or whatever you prefer. Try raising your Ram voltage
0x1E = increase vcore
0x3B = increase vcore
0x3D = increase vcore
0xD1 = QPI/VTT, increase/decrease as necessary, can also be unstable Ram, raise Ram voltage
0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x
0x109 = Not enough or too Much memory voltage
0x116 = Low IOH (NB) voltage, GPU issue (most common when running multi-GPU/overclocking GPU)
0x7E = Corrupted OS file, possibly from overclocking. Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r

If you need some GT's, I have a few extras, as I just redid my setup, and got some 38mm Deltas to replace a few GT's I had. They're just bare wire, but I'm sure you could figure out how to wire them PM me if you're interested. They've kept my i7 @4.4 at ~65C under load, so I can honestly say they're nothing short of amazing

Thanks for the offer, but I just got back from SVC with some fans. Appreciate the help, I'll probably start overclocking in a lil bit, well as soon as my pc is back on. I wanna try to get it to 4.2 ghz this time but make sure it's stable.

I forget, what was the max vcore I can use without lowering the lifespan of the cpu.

Back up and running. My idle temps are around 44c, is that too hot? My room is really small so it might have something to do with it. I haven't overclocked yet, gonna start that tomorrow.
