This heatsink blocked the radiator to be placed in the correct position. But even with only two screws the radiator was firmily attached.
But I think the temps are high. My CPU is an i7 920. I used Real Temp to measure it
At 2.6 GHz: 40 on idle and 65 load.
At 3.2 GHz: 50 idle and 75 load.
I searched around, and the temps should be around 10 ~ 15 degrees lower. Anyone has suggestions to low the temps?
below is a picture of my installation:
Good evening from Greece,
Well, recently i upgraded my first PC build, going from s1156 and Core i5 760 to s2011 and Core i7 3930K, keeping some stuff from the first build.
So, my current build consists of:
Intel Core i7-3930K
G.Skill Ares 32GB @ 1866MHz (10-11-10-30)
OCZ Vertex 2 SSD 60GB
Western Digital 640GB CaviarBlack SATA3
Coolermaster Silent Pro M600
Coolermaster CM 690 Pure Black Edition
I was wondering wether the H100i would fit in my case, considering Gigabyte's UD5 motherboard layout.
I really want to go with water cooling. Right now, with V8, core voltage from 0.876V to 1.260V max (depends on load) and cpu speed @ 3.8GHz idle temperature is 30-35 degrees celsius.
Temperature under intel burn test (full load) is 68-73 degrees celsius.
Here's a some pics of my build.
