      • atm, my cpu cooler is sucking air from behind the graphics card and pushing it into the 200mm fan at the top of the antec 1200 case. I know it sounds daft but since i got the chasis fan it actually blows cold air onto and behind the graphics card so my cpu is sucking in cooler air :P sounds dumb now i type it out lol

    Default Newbie(ish) O/Cing my i7 950 to 4Ghz(HT enabled)

    Hey team, just a collection of little queries i would like some help with, any help is better than blundering around in the darkness that i am currently :P

    Ive got my i7 950 clocked to 3977.22Mhz atm and during prime 95 - ran for 3 hours on blend- my core #0 hit 75 degrees is that alright for air? i never know if 75-80 is a manageable temp for an i7. Seeing as i think intel say 70 or something that so im a little worried and i dont want to cook my new chip :/

    Secondly ive not tried to hit 4Ghz again, i tried before but far less methodical than im being now, and it blue screened all over the shop running prime 95. Atm my VCore voltage is at 1.26v, and im afraid to go lower and cause it probs wont be enough voltage for 4Ghz, but 1.28-1.3 will probably bring the max O/C temps to 80 which im not a fan of :/.

    Also atm im running everything on auto, apart from the vCore which is a 1.26 and the RAM which is at 1.65v. FSB(Bclck i think it is on this board) is at 189 and the multiplier is 21.

    Once again, any additional you need ill post up but im just looking for any help you guys can give me or where you think i can go from here.

    p.s. i'd like to keep on the cpu config stuff on like HT, speedstep and c1E etc, i know HT off drops my temps by 10 degrees but still i wouldnt have bought an i7 to not use the hyper threading i wouldve stuck with my Q6600 :P

    Thanks again

    Best place to start is Detons i7 4GHz club. He has bios databases and many many members have easily maximized ther overclocks easily over 4GHz.

    Your Asaka Venom may not be the best cooling solution. PM me, I tested and wrote reviews on a hanfull of coolers and have some extra if you need. PM me.

    Yeah, i had a look at that when i was starting to oc the chip, but i think i had problems with prime 95 so i clocked it back and started again from scratch :P

    So you reckon 75 is an alright temp at full load on the hottest core? I see that people turn HT off to achieve over the 4.1Ghz line to keep the temps down, how high do you reckon you can go on air with HT on?

    Wow! that things a monster!!! Thats the kind of advice i was hoping for ill have a look at em thanks!

    75 is fine but your voltage is low. You can use 1.325V and be at 75 with the coolers I listed. You can get 4.2Ghz with HT on with better cooling. Why disable HT. You bought the 950 for its horsepower.

    True, but from posts ive seen HT'd cpus get you slightly higher fps on the multicore designed games like crysis etc. So would better cooling be water? like the H50or 60? Or just fatter heatsink cpu fans?

    The self contained water coolers perform just about on par with a good air cooler.

    Yeah, thats another question i wanted to ask, the antec 1200 has a 200mm exhaust fan at the top and two 120mm exhast fans at the back. If i put it in the corsair h50, for example, would the loss of one of the exhaust fans have a meaningful effect on cooling?

    not in the case of using a liquid cooler you would mount it to the rear of the chassis and turn it into a intake fan so the cooler gets fresh air from the outside of the chassis.

    So would the exhaust be facing into the case if you were using it in a push pull effort? eg the pulling fan, pulling hot air off the reservoir and into the case? and the one facing the outside blowing air onto the reservoir

    essentially you would need to flip the fan on the rad and mount it to the chassis after removing the 120mm fan that is already there, if you want to run in a push pull configuration then you take the original fan from the chassis and mount it to the other side of the rad. That is the only change you would need to make in the system the top fan will suck the hot air being pushed into the case out.

      • atm, my cpu cooler is sucking air from behind the graphics card and pushing it into the 200mm fan at the top of the antec 1200 case. I know it sounds daft but since i got the chasis fan it actually blows cold air onto and behind the graphics card so my cpu is sucking in cooler air :P sounds dumb now i type it out lol
    Thanks

    no problem, custom water can get very expensive your looking at 300-500 to start off, unless you go with some kind of kit.

    Most perform slightly better in push/pull config.

    you can push it to 80 put those temps are a bit high for aftermarket air like mentioned. Your on the right track. If you want to do it inexpensive, PM me. The most expensive cooler I have I will let go for $70 shipped. This Susanoo is as good if not better than the D-14 that I am reviewing as we speak.

    at 1.28 volts it runs 70... at 1.325V it runs 75 and that should get you close to 4.2Ghz.
