I know the sound levels are bogus but my ChillControl doesn't have anything but a green bar, no db or any of that stuff. Did something not install right?

You might get some better numbers with tweaking. Are you using good thermal compound? What's your fan ramp start/max values? I top about 59C on an i7-2600K/4.4GHz folding in Linux with 8 cores enabled, about 26C ambient.

I was guessing when you hold the Kuhler with the logo towards you and the barbs / tubes facing bottom, the tube on the left is the intake / in?

Is yours running? You can benchmark it and just hold a tube when its on and you'll feel the temperature difference on which is the out and which is the in. Not positive on which is which, I'm in class. Why do you need to know?

Running the stock compound. I was getting much lower temps earlier in the day the radiator in my room was blazing out hot air not far from the PC. Also my VCCIO was too high which creates more heat. Lowering that should bring me back down. Usually in the high 50's low 60's when stress testing.

I have my ramp temp at 35C and Max at 55 I think. Will have to check though.

Thinking once I have the overclock stable of lapping the CPU and the 920 as well as adding new thermal compound. But is the 2/4C drop worth loosing the chip warrenty??

I've not lapped anything. The stock compound is not bad at all, but once you pull it off you'll have to reapply something, might as well use the best you can get.

The way I approached the fan speed graph was to play with the settings until I found an RPM where I just start to hear the fans - about 1600rpm for my setup. Then I tweak the max number in the control panel until, at 100% load (I prefer real-world tests of things I actually do, like Folding@Home), the fan RPM settles near that speed. Then I check my temps and evaluate if the numbers are to my liking. In my config, that results in 59/60C, 35C water temp at 26C ambient. I like it very much. Remember that the numbers that ChillControl is giving you in the fan ramp control are for the water temp, not CPU temp.

When gaming, the GPU puts off some heat and the fans pick up the pace a little, but the GPU makes far more noise and I don't notice the Kuhler at all.

Thanks for the tips. I set mine up when using prime so I guess I really want to set everything to trigger a few degree's lower than when using prime since it stresses the PC more than most applications ever would.

As said though, very happy with it. I had a 1st gen Antec with my E8400 and it wasn't that great cooling wise but was really good quality. This seems to have both covered!

@mardon

  Yeah, I'm personally using Antec Formula 6 Nano Diamond, cause I could find it local, and it was cheaper than having AS5 shipped, and it's a 40g Tube, as opposed to AS5's 9g tube. Staples, $9.99thumb.gif That, and the temps I posted were at Idle, with my room at a ambient 35F... No heater in my room.

Using 1.7v i was able to hit 3.9GHz on all 4 cores. The temp didnt go past 44celcius. ( the actual cpu temp, i have no idea of what the cores are)

Ambient temprature was -11 celcius.... Norway,hehe. I just had to try it biggrin.gif

A question: Anyone who could recomend 2 fans to`get to the 620?
post #1479 of 6068
So overclock tweaked and stable. Room was around 23C, While gaming max temp using 920 was 52C and benchingn 67C. Happy with that biggrin.gif

4.8Ghz 1.4Vcore
