:toast: looks like ".." will have some pie tonight! :D

If temps go up too much on that cooler you can switch to a push-pull setup and probably get them down an extra 3-5C.... even if you just added one of those 1200rpm fans you have you should see a drop temps by a couple degrees C
.. hopefully will :D
Although, at this point, I've only had about 1,000pts worth of WUs validated from the 2700k. I figure within ~4 days points should start leveling off, but I'm not getting much yet. I guess we'll see.

My goal is to keep temps below about 75c. I let my laptop consistently run at that, but I don't like much hotter. I have a pair of relatively high-speed 120mm fans, but I'll have to steal one of them off of the Antec cooler on the 860 (not an issue, temps are ~60c so I can afford to lose a fan). I'm not sure I'll end up pushing the 2700k much more, it's pretty much silent and putting out very little heat ATM. I'll have to see how much of an impact the GTX470 has, even though it exhausts externally I figure it will still raise case temperatures a good bit.
KieX said he got up to 4.7GHz on the 2700k, so I may go for that...but I don't want to go much higher, IMO longevity is more important than an extra 100 or 200MHz.

That is a terrible picture :p
Is the 965BE going to run caseless, or will it go back in the Raidmax?

It looks fine to me, crystal clear in fact :rolleyes:... maybe your studies are messing with your eyes :p :roll:

It's going into the Cougar Solution case I got a few weeks ago

Is this pic any better (extreme close up)?

Beautiful :toast:
Given that's a BE chip and you have a Gaia atop it, do you plan to OC it once it's reassembled?

I plan on a significant OC. 4.0+ if I can keep everything cool :D


This cooler's not a Gaia it's a Xig Venus (mine is a review sample- don't think it ever went retail in the USA)

Snazzy! From the mounting it looked like the Gaia :eek:

4GHz+ might be a bit optimistic for even a C3 BE chip...I had a 955BE C2 that would refuse to do past about 3.7GHz, but it was also on a $55 Gigabyte 785G board. GL! :toast:

It's looking like I won't be able to do push/pull on the Gaia unless I get some new fans..the ones I have won't work with the Xigmatek rubber mounting system. Not really a huge issue, as I need more fans anyways. Any suggestions on what would work best?

Hello guys,

Sorry I haven't been around much but I'm one busy person lately. Seems like everybody needs me for something :laugh: Not only that but i spend more time at my moms now after her health issues got worse and take care of more errands for her and stuff so little by little my days keep getting shorter.

Anyhow, I'm alive and well and just wanted to check in and see how everything was since I've missed a bit lately :(

Also, since my fresh install of W7, I haven't had any more BSOD's. Guess it wasn't hardware related. You'll know what that means heh? :rockout:

Glad that your issues are solved :toast:

I noticed that your i7-950 doesn't seem to be running--did something happen to it? :ohwell:

I got my 2700k/mobo from KieX and I have it OCed to 4.3GHz right now @ ~65C, and I'm hoping for a bit over 6k PPD. We'll see exactly, but it should be a pretty great boost. :toast:

Norton is reconfiguring some of his systems.

I'm really sorry to hear about your mom. I wish her the best and I hope she gets better soon! :cry: :toast:

Already had it up to 3.8 and crunching on the ASUS 970 board with an original Xig Dark Knight so we'll see ;)

4 well placed rubber bands should mount any fan on that cooler but I haven't tried it yet.(loop one around as vibration isolator and the other around the fan... repeat for other side)

For fans on that cooler I would look for:
- 60+ cfm
- high pitch blades (i.e. for high static pressure)
- 1800-2200 rpm
A 2nd stock Xig fan may do the trick but I don't remember the specs?

It's been running. I don't have Free DC bookmarked so I haven't checked my stats in a few since the fresh install of Windows. I'll check it now, but it's been fine all along.

Just checked the i7-950. Nothing pending, all reported. Results are not erroring out, don't know what to say. :(

OK, I was just looking under your hosts on Free-DC and I thought I saw that it wasn't turning back anything. Perhaps you have multiple installs and I saw one of the old ones :ohwell:

For sure I do but still, I have had that rig running for over a week for sure on the new install, no reason why I should not be making any points. I'll keep a close eye on it. Thanks for the heads up! :toast:

Both of the dual-core systems I had left over at home are both sold. Glad to finally have them gone, and another $280. Easily enough for an AMD FX-8xx0 or an i7. I'm probably not going to buy anything right away, but it's nice to know I can splurge for another system. I have a PSU, HDD, and GPU that I can get when I head home for break in two weeks.

It's Alive!!!! again.... :eek:

The cooler is tight in this case. It clears the top fans by about 1/2" and the side panel by a couple of mm! :twitch:

Why, I do believe I recognize that GPU, do I not? ;)

Also, that PSU looks really similar to the Antec TPN-650w I have :toast:

As far as clearance goes, I think (although I'm not certain) the tips of the heatpipes on the Gaia are running into the side panel on the S210.

and you would be correct :toast:

The PSU is an HCG 620 and it has Seasonic internals... really nice unit:rockout:

The Gaia was close to the side panel on mine but it cleared it ... barely :twitch:

Anyone want to do me a favor and see if they can find a HP Slimline case on their local Craigslist? Having a hard time finding one here. Even though my G530 setup is small, I really need it in a case and out the way for 24/7 running.

I really can't wait to get my i7 under water. Since we've been getting a good amount of rain and the temps dropped nicely. I shut the ac off and my crunchers are in the living rm next to the ac. It use to sit around 47c but with no ac running its getting up to 80c+ and thats under a Tt frio ock. I hope I can see some decent temps under water cause my rig has been doing something where I can't access it through teamviewer. I just hit the reset and its connected again but don't know what happens as I don't have a screen on it yet to monitor. So no telling if its thermal shutdown, bsod'ing or what.

Any thoughts on temps for this chip. HT is on so it went from 2.93 - 4.08. Not sure whats some reasonable temps for the chip.

Is that the only kind of case that will work or will any slim case do the job?

Any way you can downclock it a bit? 4GHz+ is already an awful lot for a Lynnfield chip, particularly when it isn't under water. I know you might lose some points, but if you can take it down to ~3.8Ghz I'd say it should run a good bit cooler and be more stable (3.8GHz seems to be the sweet spot for the i7-8x0s). Alternatively, can you move it to the room with the monitor and watch it for a bit?

I'd say much above 80c is too hot. I'm entirely content with 75c for 24/7 daily operation, but much above that and I start to get uncomfortable. If you're getting up to, say, 85c, that's the point where I'd feel a need to do something to bring things down :toast:

A little OC on the 965BE (3.88Ghz (210x18.5) @1.42v, 1890HT, 2100NB)

seems to be running well crunching 100% on Windows 8 at these settings (3 hrs so far) :)



Will try at these settings for a few days and then tweak it a bit from there....

:rockout:

According to CPUID HWMonitor, your X4 is currently pulling 30w more (on the CPU alone) at 3.88GHz than my i7 is @ 4.3GHz :eek:

HWMonitor doesn't really read actual power usage and that i7 (2700k?) is a 95w chip vs a 965BE (125w)... safe to say we're both over the stock ratings on our chips ;)
