Help i need more cooling

Recommended Posts

Help, i'm a newbee. I have a new cyberpower built Extreme XT with: Coolermaster 590 centurion case, Coolermaster v8 with i7 920 and asus pt6 with 6mb -1600 ram, a 260 video card and a CP 800w PS. I am very pleased with the build so far but have not been able to achieve a mild OC of 3.2 without my temps climbing past 77-78C after a few minutes of load with prime 95. I have added three extra 120mm fans for a total of 5. One in the lower side panel, one on the top rear of the case and an extra one in the front. I have moved the fans in different configurations and they have helped but I'm afraid to go higher than 75C. I swapped the rear fan with a 70CFM and put the orginal in the front above the original. I'm trying to optimize the airflow straight through the V8. I'm not sure if these are normal temps for 3.2 OC or if my V8 is performing as it should. Do i need to remove the V8 and check the thermal paste, lap the cooler or what do i need to do to keep my temps acceptable. Any advice or tips will be greatly appreciated. Remember i am a newbee and don't assume i understand all the lingo.

No problem. Make sure that the V8 is blowing hot air to the direction that is out of your case. That should improve temperatures easily.

Did you set CPU voltage manually, I've heard that some motherboards automatically overvolt CPU when overclocked.

Also what was temperature at stock speed?

Thanks,

I Believe you are correct on the Voltages. I manually put them in and it brought my temps. down to a stable 73C for over 10 min of Prime 95. I would like them lower and i will continue to tweak. My V-8 fan is Blowing hot air directly into the rear case exhaust fan.

If anyone has an optomized 3.2 Freq, Bios setup, for an i7 920, with a ASUS p6t and 6 GHz 1600 XMP DDR3, I would appreciate your Bios Setting and Temps with a CM-V8, or other similar coolers or setups. I'm also open to more suggestions on improving my cooling.

Thanks for the reply.

You may get a better response regarding voltages, tweaks and such, on the ASUS forum, rather than here.

You may wish to post a description of your fan set-up, either here, or on the Chassis, or Mods and Overclocks section of this forum. Airflow can have a significant effect on the cooler's ability to move heat.

Be Well!
