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?

Thanks mate

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

Also guys

I remember when the 8150 was released there was some sort of windows 7 hotfix, does this also apply to Piledriver or was it just for Bulldozer?
No, :)

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.

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 :p

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 :D

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 :fear:
