    Default OC'ing Core i7-975 with Coolit Boreas

    Hi all. I currently have a Core i7-975 that I can get up to 3.8GHz while staying perfectly stable and within acceptable temperature limits under full load for an entire day. I am using the Corsair H50 right now but I'd like to go to 4GHz or higher without a full blown water cooling setup or phase change system. Does anyone here have experience with Coolit Boreas and a Core i7-975? If so, what kind of overclocking might I expect? Thank you.

    Current System:

    Motherboard: Asus P6X58D Premium
    CPU: Core i7-975 Extreme
    RAM: 6 GB's, G-Skill Trident DDR-2000
    PSU: PC Power & Cooling 1200W Turbo Cool
    HDD: Two Patriot Torqx in RAID 0, Three 160GB Velociraptors in RAID 0
    CPU Cooler: Corsair H50

    The Doc and I both use a Boreas, and one or two other guys here as well.

    Put your system specs into your Control Panel so we can all see them, it'll help.

    But with your setup....4.0GHz won't be a problem at all running 24/7 on a Boreas. Depends how hard you want to push your chip and whether it'll be 24/7 or for benching, but a Boreas can go far beyond 4.0, no worries.

    Thanks Skyguy - I appreciate the quick answer. I'd like to run at 4GHz all the time - provided the temp is well below the maximum limit of my CPU so that I won't be shortening its life too much. Also, at what point does condensation become an issue - have you observed any of that? One last thing...what do you mean by putting my specs in the Control Panel? I know that I did put them in my profile here when I signed up. Anyway - thanks again.

    The MTEC control panel can automatically adjust the fan speed and TEC power in order to achieve a specific temperature or limit. This means that you can keep 4.0GHz, for example, at very low temperatures, or at ambient temperatures. It's up to you. Even without the TECs physically touching, condensation isn't an issue because the control center can adjust for optimal temps.

    I have run the Boreas utterly full tilt on a dual core and got it down to the single digit temperatures at idle. No condensation problems there either. But your 975 @ 4.0GHz+ won't be that chilly, so no worries.

    Awesome. You've addressed all my concerns - I'm going to buy this next week - as long as it is still in stock (some etailer had 1 in stock this morning so I'll have to wait and see). Now I can't wait!

    Thanks for the pics and can't wait to see the picks of the new setup when complete!

    For image hosting you may want to try Photobucket. I have found them to be far superior to imageshack...

    I just found a Boreas online for $518 with 2 HDD coolers and case. Hope it's still in stock on payday!

    That's a great deal...if it falls thru I would buy from Coolit direct. They will work you a deal.

    Completely agree Rick.

    Pyackel, send a PM to Doctor Death and tell him you want a Boreas. We work directly with CoolIT, he might be able to help you out.
