    Noctua NH-U12S with 1 fan

    I use gigabyte z270 gaming k3 with the latest bios update
    case dukase v2 with the top hdd rack removed
    4 case fans 2 in front and 2 in the back
    and a reference blower rx 480

    4.5 GHz is the built in turbo speed.

    Your temps seem alright. You've got a lot of headroom thermal wise and voltage wise.

    thank you for your answer sir
  5. Np. You can try 4.8 at 1.28 volts or 4.9 at 1.32 and see if those work.

    If either one does and the temp stays below 80c you should be good and you can try stepping down the voltage by 0.005 and testing until it's unstable and then go back up.

    I tried 4.9 at around 1.31~2 and was stable but the temp was around 82 in full load and i went back i think i will go for dual fan on my noctua cooler and see if it does something
  7. Dual fan will help a little. More than likely it will put you at 80. If it sits at or below 80 at peak you're running optimal and great! For now 4.8 should do well.

    I was a little tense because i had an Amd APU before going for the kabby and it was running at lower temps but i think the termal margin was also lower on the APU

    Thank you again for the tips :D

  9. It's quite alright. The kaby lakes are known for their high temps.
