My System Specs


I have to buy a water cooler if I want to run at 5gigs.I am running mine right now at 4.625gigs at 1.288v, idles at 27c to 29c and prime95 it does 62c to 58c but I just ran it about a hour. AT 5gigs at 1.375v it idles 39c to 37c and Prime95 80c to 79c I just ran it around 30 minutes,it started getting hotter then I wanted. This is with a 212 EVO on air .I learn the hard way not to set it to auto on the voltage .The ASRock Exetreme 4 don't have stap settings it is done automaticaly when setting the BCLK. I had the exetreme tuner install at set it to 125 and rebooted it and had the voltage on Auto and it was set at 42x and I did'nt pay attention that the BCLK was set at 125 .It did boot up in to windows but I seen my temps reading 49c at idle and I ran CPU-z and it was running at 5250 I called it 5.3g but my voltage was at 1.57v I started running prime 95 but it hit 88c quick and I quickly rebooted it. and then I set my voltages way down because I knew it would do 4.3g at 1.23v .that little $34 cooler does a great job plus I think I got a really good chip.But before I run it at 5gigs I want a CPU water cooler but I don't know which one is the best to go with.The way I understand the spec's you should'nt go over 66.8c and 1.35v .But I think as long as I keep my tempertures down 1.375v should be fine.These review sites has some crazy core voltages IMO.
