    Default Hi@ll, noob questions

    Hi@ll,

    I've managed to OC my Core-I7 920 (lga 1366) bloomfield 2.66 to 4.0Ghz (Thank you very much for your guide Deton, it's EPIC!). Now the eternal problem: the temperature increase.

    I'm currently using a Noctua U12S (I think, i'm not sure what exact model I have right now) and my case is a Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Thermaltake - U.S.A. - Overseer RX-I - VN700M1W2N with 1 frontal 20cm front fan, 1 top 20 cm top fan and 1 rear 12cm. rear fan.

    before overclocking it, I was between 32șC (idle) and 45șC (full) and now i'm about 50șC (idle) and 80șC (full) or more. I can't run occt test (heavy) for much more than 3 mins without getting it cancelled for excessive temperature.

    So, the question: It's worth to buy a liquid cooling solution? I think yes (the lower the temperature the better) but, wich one?

    requisites:

    - must be silent
    - about 100$-150$
    - preferably a preassembled kit
    - Good cooling performace (obviuosly!)

    I have found these ones:

    - Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H80i => Hydro Series? H80i High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler - Hydro Series - Cooling
    - Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H110 => Hydro Series? H100i Extreme Performance CPU Cooler - Hydro Series - Cooling
    - Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme => Thermaltake - U.S.A. - Water 2.0 Extreme - CLW0217

    The thermaltake is quieter than corsair ones (about 10dBa) but, does it have a good performance?

    I would like to get about 55șC max temperature (at full use).

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Well, first off could you please fill out your system specs by going to "User CP>Edit PC System Specs" at the top left corner so we can know your exact hardware. I, myself have an i7 920 that I just recently got to 4GHz. I don't think you'll be able to stay 55C and below at 4GHz without custom watercooling. How have you overclocked? Just increase the Multiplier and BCLK? Have you manually set any voltages? If not, I suggest you try to find a low stable voltage which in turn will lower your temperatures and give you more headroom. What you should do is enable Load Line Calibration in the BIOS so that your voltage can fluctuate depending on the task at hand. For the cooler, the H80i is great, but if you have the room you may want to look at the H100i.

    Hey Moon, Welcome to Pure OC ! The top 3 AIO coolers are as follows: NZXT Kraken X60, Corsair H110, and the new Swiftect H220, The X60 runs a little loud due to it's 2000 RPM 140mm fans, Corsair chose to go with 1500 RPM 140mm fans so their cooler would run quiet. The Swiftech H220 comes with two 120mm fans that I believe run at 1800 RPM, I'd had to check my post where I tested 11 AIO coolers to be sure. The problem here is that I'm not sure if your TT case is set up to accept a AIO system with a 280 Rad, which both the X60 and H110 use, the H220 uses a 240 Rad, you would have to check the specs for your TT case. If you have any questions, you can always send me a PM or just post them here.

    Thanks

    hi,

    thnx for the quick answer chris (I have filled out my computer specs). Also, later on I will post my exact overclocking parameters (i'm not at home right now).

    I have found this video:



    At the moment, Thermaltake kit is leading the race ...

    Not a problem! It will be well worth it to take the time and tweak your OC.

    It's allmost the same denton posted but with a few differences (lower cpu voltage and different X.M.P. profile)

    P.D. I'm measuring the free space inside my case and it has to be this one:

    - Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H80i => Hydro Series? H80i High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler - Hydro Series - Cooling

    t
    he two others doesn't fit inside the case =(

    Perfect! That CPU voltage is rather high.. especially since you have a D0 920 (according to your specs). Try lowering it to 1.26V and go from there. My C0 920 @ 4GHz is at 1.3V with HT enabled, so you should be able to run a lot lower.

    Lower your PLL to 1.80V.
    Lower your QPI/DRAM Core voltage to 1.20V.
    Lower your DRAM Bus Voltage to 1.5V.
    Disable SpeedStep and Turbo Mode.

    Everything else looks fine.

    thank you for your quick responses criss,

    can't lower the voltage values (windows shows a BSOD event before reaching the desktop)

    and the 1.66V of the RAM hasn't been increased (when it wasn't overclocked they were working with that value)

    According to the OOCT screenie, you're running at 4.2GHz (forgot to mention the ratio auto setting). Change your CPU Ratio setting to 21 and your BCLK to 191. There is no gain going from 4GHz to 4.2GHz execpt more heat. Once you do that, then try 1.28V on the CPU voltage, each time it crashes up the voltage an increment until windows loads up.

    Hi criss,

    I have been trying different values for BCLK (from 191 to 195) and cpu voltages (from 1.28 to 1.31) and the temperature decrease is about 1șC only. Seems that I can't lower the cpu voltage under 1.35V.

    So I think the better solution to lower my cpu temp is change my Noctua with the Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H80i => Hydro Series? H80i High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler - Hydro Series - Cooling kit (the H100/H110/thermaltake doesn't fit inside my case =( ).

    If anyone knows a better liquid cooling kit I'm open to recomendations.

    Thank you again for your great help criss and Doctor_Death for his recomendations about the kits!!!

    Not all chips are the same, some can OC with lower voltages, some can't, you just happen to have a chip that needs more v-core. Take my 3930K, I have to have it set at 1.45v to hit a stable 4-5 - 4.8GHz, where as both of the 3960X chips I had could hit the same OCs at 1.38v on one chip and 1.4v on the other.

    I just find it funny because he has a D0 and they're supposed to take less voltage than the C0, meanwhile I can hit 4GHz, HT on with just 1.28V.

    As I use to say: Computers (or opinions) are like asses: everybody has one of them and thinks the other ones stinks :P

    Although theory says, every system is different, no matter the exact model of components, it will behave as it wants to.

    Again, THANK YOU very much for your help, I couldn't OC my computer without your knowledge =)
