25c idle and 50c load OCCT 30mins
Not bad at all.
Need a water cooler
This is the hotfix that I was talking about
Should I install it?
you can won't hurt anything. I have them installed
but look for another link instead of that one
Did you see a performance boost? Seeing online about a 10% increase.
Also which link should I be using?
a little but not much
After clicking both says "This update is not applicable to your computer"
Guess I can't do it, thanks away.
Wrong place to be advertsing
you might already have them as they were include in a recent windows update
damn i ordered that noctua nth1 and it was out of stock so chose the chillfactor3 its one below the noctua!
i cant find that indigo extreme which is about 1*c better than the rest.
sunday night ill probably try a session of overclocking again, really want that stable 4.8 again grr!!
the sweetspot for me is 4.6GHz as any higher and i get my own personal heater
yea i overclock at night, windows wide open. ambient temps of about 5*c
keeps temps low with this xigmatek aegir, even vrms stay cool until about 1.5v
im not planning on a 24/7 4.8ghz+ but somwthing good enough for a decent bench test.
so as long as im prime stable for about 30mins i should be ok.
24/7 i want 4.6 stable and then ill switch power savers back on
My 8350 on a H100 was 4.85Ghz on 1.488v stable 24/7 (sabertooth and V Formula Mobos).
Generic MX5 Paste used.
This is on air CM Hyper 212+ Temps at idle average 28-35c depending on ambient temp.
Running OCCT for 30 min. averages temps around 50-55c max.
Volts will actually frop down to the 1.26 range under a load.
im planning on getting a h100, but is the h100i worth the extra? and whats the difference?
i got my stuff to finish my sleeving. so the mods back on the go..... tbh im getting impatient i just want to overclock and bench.
changed thermal pastes on the 7950 as well, prior testing temps are lower and it hasnt even cured yet!
When my H80 broke i was about to get a H100i, then i noticed the temp differences on both and opted for the cheaper H100, Many factors taken into account, theres is a mere few degrees difference. I then spent that spare money on better fans for the WHOLE system.
Luckily i got the H100 while it had a 30% offer on Ebuyer.
aww wicked. i did look at i think its the swiftek and the double rad kraken.
but ive got 6 corsair fans ready and waiting so will use them. may even buy some other performance for push pulls. and one 140 af for the graphics card.
this build price is starting to run away with itself tho lol and havent even got my 1080 monitor
In hindsight I would have bought a Kraken, I am, after all, using an NZXT case(Which allows you to use 2 x 200mm as the Pull fans).
mines becoming a friggin corsair case lol
My case did have a H80 with both Corsair SP 120 performance fans, and that handles an 8350 at 4.8Ghz no problem. H100 is just for that extra stability. I gave my brother my second 8350 and my V Formula MoBo, and he's running it at 4.7ghz on a H80i, and he hasnt had any problems.
Never understood why, but both 8350's clocked better on the Sabertooth.
With the Swiftech you can add in another 120mm radiator in the loop and get even more cooling potential w/o breaking your warranty
Other than the small premium on the price... what's not to like about that, a 3 yr warranty, and the 6 or 8 way PWM fan module thingy it comes with
im totally new to watercooling.... im old and think water and electric nnaaaaaaatttttt!!!
but that sounds interesting however a 120mm on top of a 240? overkill? hmm i like.
i may just put a list together for a custom loop and buy bits at a time, least i can keep the parts and transfer it between builds.
but i dont know where to start lol
