    Yes!! ChimPowerUp needs our help~

    I have three i7's folding for them (us) right now... but we are really struggling as far as ranking:(
    But that doesn't matter it is all for a great cause:toast:

    Lower your ambients a bit and see how you stand :toast:
    We do have to consider we are going against some really heavy teams when it comes to folding. Regardless like you said it's for a good cause, and it's fun :)

    Finally got round to playing around with my i7 today. Seems to be a good overclocker but temps are a little scary:

    Crunching away:

    That's about a 6-7C increase over stock speed temps. My ambient temp is pretty high though, according to a thermometer I left on the desk 38C:eek:

    How safe you recon?

    That does seem like a nice clocking i7 :toast:

    i7's run really hot, to me, if you are benching stay under 90ºc on quick runs, anything else 80ºc or less. your temps are fine, you can't push much much more though.

    Good to know. I can go 4.2 on 1.3V (BIOS) but the temps were around 80C crunching which I think is too high. I'll see how it copes in summer but I might either get some water cooling set-up (first time) or clock down a bit.

    yeah, I'd just keep it at where it was at as per above screenshot. What cooling setup you have cooling it now?

    Yep, think that's the sensible idea too :toast:

    Got Megahalems with a 1850rpm Gentle Typhoon posted on Your PC ATM Sexy Close-Up. My TRUE's backplate fused with the motherboard, so couldn't use that.. stayed on the Q9550. Moved the Corsair H50 to the Q8400 because temps were not so good inside the HAF. Air coolers just work better for me inside them.

    Hmmm, the Mega should get you a little higher. My 4.1 GHz, 1.19v setup max temps crunching is about 62ºc, however my setup is on a tech station too!

    my AMD955 is now at 80%
    the stock cooler sucks, Will fix next pay day.
    the 1055t, I just don't trust the temps(too low), Will try overclock soon.

    Try to run at 3.8 GHz with a 1.23 volt. 3.8 GHz has been the sweetspot for all of my i7's and keeps the temps down in the low 60's or high 50's.
    You won't be sacraficing many points (if any at all) by going down to 3.8:)

    What about the time that guy cracked one of those super leet high leakage AMD quad cores when he tried removing the tube after it had just been under ln2?

    this just gets stranger and stranger.
    last update fixed half of the problem but still four work units waiting to run.
    temps went to 76c but I don't think that would kill anything.

    simple view shows 8 work units.
    task manger shows 8 threads.
    must be a glitch but still I almost had a hissy fit.

    Might do. Going to go for a dual fan setup on the Megahalems, see if that helps because temps overnight reached 83C. I can do 3.8GHz on stock volts but the temperature difference is just 4-6C. Ambients are high that's the prob.

    What's she flaunting?

    Try restarting the manager and runningn the CPU benchmark again. Find that tends so solve most stuff. Worth a try if you haven't already

    @KieX running the bench worked.
    thanks!
    I thought i killed something.
    Trying to quit smoking and having rig problems just don't mesh.

    What tube was he trying to remove? :confused:

    Thank you sir :toast: Heck yeah we missed you, where have you been? Welcome back BTW :toast:

    Now we just need a upskirt :roll:

    Glad to see everything is fine. As far as temps, I like to keep my i7's under 80ºc for crunching. Low 70's is ideal, or lower of course :)
