Quick question.. When looking at Speedfan.. am i looking at the Cores temps?? or the CPU temp?? because my CPU temp is always about 36/40 at idle and at load about 60C... But my Cores are the high temps sometimes hitting about 80 under load

I just wondering what am i suppose to be looking at >.<

Edit*

Btw i oced my video card to 800 mhz/1600 mhz shader and 2033 memory I now get about 4900 low and 2900 High.. Not much of a overclock on my GPU either and I have room to play.. Also my ram is still running at 667 mhz.. which it should be 1333/1600 I just havent messed with volts/timing yet.. I think I still have some power to unleash :P

My best advice is don't use speedfan.

you're using DDR, so your speed is actually 667 * 2

Or 1334. If you're capable of 1600, get movin' and get it there :P

I have that too.. But i still fail to see which one to go by... CPUTIN?? Or the cores?? my CPUTIN is still 35C but cores idle at 50C

and ya on wednesday my day off work im going to call Mobo company to see what i need to raise to raise my Voltage for ram.. its at 1.5 and needs to be at 1.65 for 1600mhz.. but i just dont know which voltage to raise... i tried once and couldnt boot so i left it alone lol

I'm not sure what the purpose is of the Corsair proc. only water coolers. It's much more convenient to just get a good aftermarket air cooler. GPU is where watercooling works wonders, so it just seems silly to have a the effort of watercooling in your PC, but not to extend it to the gpu. Even then an aftermarket air cooler is usually more than adequate. Watercooling is excessive in most applications, I think.

That is normal, 1333 is the data transfer rate not the Mhz.

If you are using a CPU on an LGA 1156 socket do NOT go above 1.55v on your memory. Also be careful with Vtt voltage. 1.15v is the max for Lynfield and even that is not recommended (I don't know about the newer 35nm chips but if I had to guess the safe maximum limits are probably even lower).

Running your voltages at the edge of absolute maximum won't immediately kill your CPU but it will shorten it's lifespan.

Thinking about the Corsair H50... Or something similiar.. guy at best buy said they had a self maintence liquid cooler.. might look in to that unless its silly overpriced lol


Just some info on the H50, as I actually bought it myself :P

Pro's:
Much more efficient job than the stock cooler
Extremely quiet
Easy to install
Can add a second fan for a push pull setup for additional cooling

Con's
Not as efficient as other liquid cooling options
Not as efficient as other high end air cooling


Personal experience, dropped my idle temps from 39C (stock headsink) to 31C, and load temps from 66C (stock heatsink) to 48C when not OC'ed. I was able to OC from 2.66ghz to 3.2ghz on my I5 750, though I could probably push it a little further. Comes with a great thermal paste already on it, so you don't have to worry about applying your own, or the usual burn in period. If you watch Newegg, the H50 goes on sale somewhat often, I was able to pick mine up for $62 which isn't to bad.

I'm sure I'm leaving stuff out, as I've been at work now for just over 15 hours straight, and my head just isn't working right anymore, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask, and I'll respond after I've gotten some sleep lol.

My cpu socket is 1366 not the 1156. im not raising the vcore voltage i dont believe? I think its the QPI/DRAM voltage or something.. I dont know there are so many different voltages in the bios...

Frostytech rated the Hyper 212 86% overall, which is better than the Xigmatek, but what do I know.

You should look at more than one review when researching PC hardware (or anything) in order to get a better overall picture.

Please post a link to an unfavorable professional review of the CM 212 instead of just saying that any cooler under $40 is garbage.

FYI, the 212 is now $50 on Newegg due to its 10/10 ranking from Maximum PC.
