My System Specs

Default BE 965 + prime 95

Hey Guys,

I was running my 965 3.8 ghz a few hours ago and within 5 mins of the test, i keep getting rounding errors. So ive searched around and it turns out my OC isnt stable. So i loaded the optimized defaults and ran the test with stock clock.

So far after 2 hrs (and counting) no errors, no BSOD, freezing, etc.

Now, ive searched the forums and came across this Are these temps Ok? and read through the post. And it seems like the temp on my 965 (when using prime) goes as high as 65C. Im using Core temp 0.99.7 + CPUID Hardware monitor to monitor temps.

My vcore (idle) is 1.07v, but full load is 1.47v. Core temp (idle) 38C, ambient temp - 23C.

I believe its high - stressing the CPU and RAM for 2+ hours. Now before i OC this rig any further, any way i can reduce the temp besides adding more fan and/or a newer case?

Im using a thermaltake V9, stock cooling fan, CoolIT push/pull configuration, stock 4890.

This is how she sits ATM:
