    Default Maximus Extreme Pics

    Here are the differences between the Extreme version and SE.
    Extreme version was released after couple months I purchased the SE. Damn Asus. However, the Extreme version only support DDR3


    Fusion block and SB heatsink pipes was upgraded, also a ROG backlit logo added to the heat sink. As you can see here in the dark.



    Heatsinks are all copper, no alumimum mixture. They also added 2 external SATA connections (red) at the back.


    Fusion block and SB crosslink heatsink is connected in one piece system, if you want to upgrade aftermarket NB block. Then you have to replace the SB heatsink as well.

    However, you can still reuse the MOSFET heatsinks if you like. It only connected to Fusion block by couple screws.

    MOBO's temp do get hot when it under load just like another compoments, but hotter that NB?

    Solution:
    tidy up those messy cables (if there're any)
    install extra case intake fans

    Default Maximus Temp Report

    Use this template when you post your temp along with OC specs (include voltage, case model and number of fan and RPM), so the other members can do comparison. Hopefully it will give them some idea how to improve their temp if they need too.

    Post temp in this fashion - idle/load (idle temp first then load). Please use Celsius figures


    Q6600 @ 3.6Ghz (9x400) 1.425v
    CASE: TJ09
    FAN INTAKE: 1x120 (speed controled by temp sensor, mostly on low)
    FAN EXHAUST: 1x120 rear (low), 2x120 top (radiator's fan - low)
    ROOM AMBIENT: 21
    MB: 38/41
    CPU: 27/36 (water cooled)
    Core 1: 42/66
    Core 2: 40/66
    Core 3: 36/62
    Core 4: 37/62
    NB: 41/47 @ 1.39v (water cooled - stock water block, un-upgrade)
    SB: 40/46 @ 1.05v (chipset fan installed)

    Temperature Improvement:



    if you want to improve the temp for the NB chipset, you have to 2 options as follow:
    1. Remount the ROG cooling (all versions) with high quality thermal paste
    2. Replace the ROG block (SE & Extreme versions) with aftermarket chipset waterblock
    You'll propably reclaim up to 10c on load temp.
    e.g: my NB 47c/load now, if I remove it and re-apply with S5. I will have the temp drop to 37c.
    ***beware: ROG heatsink/block is very hard to remove. Asus used some kind of adhesive thermal paste, if you pull it too hard the chipset will come off as well ***

    How to Remove Asus Maximus Formula Heatpipe Guide New

    Download Temp Monitor Software: (updated)
    CoreTemp 0.98v Vista 64bit support- The title said it all
    SpeedFan 4.34v - Temp monitor and fan controller by software
    Everest Home Edition 2.20 Vista 64bit support - Hardware ultility software
    RealTemp 2.5v Vista 64bit support - RealTemp is a temperature monitoring program designed for all Intel single Core, dual Core and quad Core processors. Each core on these processors has a digital thermal sensor (DTS) that reports temperature data relative to TjMax which is the safe maximum operating core temperature for the CPU. As your CPU heats up, your Distance to TjMax will decrease. If it reaches zero your processor will start to throttle or slow down so obviously maximizing your distance away from TjMax will help your computer to run at full speed and more reliably too.

    i'm fairly new to OC'ing - those temps were reported by Everest (not sure how accurate they are)

    i've only stability tested (and passed) with OCCT so far...

    vCore is @ 1.37

    1.37v @ 3.6Ghz and stabled? That's good.
    How long did you run OCCT?
    Stablize test should run at least 8hrs straight, also you can use Prime95 to do this as well. It will stress all 4 cores.

    Everest is pretty good program. It reports the same result as CoreTemp and Probe II.
    This is how I do the reading;
    Step 1: I take the readings while the stress running after 1 hours for load reading.
    Step 2: STOP the test and let it idling for about 30mins later and take the reading.

    Post Benching Results

    Let have some fun with the benching, shall we?
    You can use SiSoft Sandra XII 2008 and conduct your own test then post the results.

    I compared to the following processors references:
    I selected QX9770 (3.2GHz), QX6800 (2.93GHz), Q6600 (2.4GHz) and AMD Phenom 9900 (QUAD CORE 2.6GHz) all for OS 32bit

    Just use Processor Arithmetic and Multi-Media benching and select the CPU class that are close to your overclocked CPU

    Thanks for the suggestions.
    I've only ran OCCT at 30min intervals (maybe 4 times).
    I'm planning on adding a fan to the northbridge heatsink and a case intake fan, after that i'll try more (and lengthier) stability tests
