  3. Go to the 1st page, you can find it there. Says "Stable OC table"

  4. This weekend I'm going for a stable 4.2Ghz. Let you know what happens.

  5. The worst that can happen is kill your CPU, your mobo, your RAM, or all those..... :lol:

    Ouch! .....I ran prime95 at 4.2ghz and it ran for 2 hours fine. The problem is that my temps shot up to 71c under load. Ran Prime95 again at 4.0ghz for 2 hours and it stayed at 56c under load.. Anything above 60 worries me. Do I need a better water cooler? I have the Corsair H50. 4.2 ghz seems to be a hot zone huh?

  7. The h50 isn't a real water cooler, it's just a closed loop, real water cooling would do much better XD. Anyway, the H50 in dual config is good, have you tried that.

  8. ^Agreed I had a h50 and switched to a custom lcs after i wanted to get my overclock higher. H50 only does so much on a higher oc

    The H50 is a closed loop, at least it better be or I will be wondering where the fluid goes! lol I see its not the best thing out there. I do like the fact that there is less of a chance in leakage since there are only two componants. Air cooling with towers very limited due to the case size. Yes I do have 2 fans on the Radiator. I get a little over 10c cooler overall and much better OCing. You get what you pay for and more with it. I just didnt want to complicate things and save a buck too. I have a very very small Cube case, check it out "Sunbeam UFO" I use the 120mm next to the CPU to pump in with push and pull plus I have an exhaust blower on the open slot next to the Vid card. Seems to be ok tho I would like more exhaust. The Vid side get intake from the other 120mm intake and theres one open Slot for pressure exhaust plus the card has some exhaust out of the back. My ambient is about 27c and motherboard is 30c on Idle. Al in all its warmer then some and this is why I bought the H50. Keep in mind the ATI 5850 is huge and basically blocks circulation from one side to the other. One more thing is I have the top and side panels slightly open, one for the H50 hoses to run in and out the top and the other due to the PCI connectors, they stick out about 1/2 inch. Thank God acrylic bends!!

    Hey bro what are your temps including Ambient at 4.16?

    Ambient here is San Diego is like 20c With my H50 (when I had it @4.1 was running at like 67+) So I switched to a lcs. If you want to run your higher oc I would suggest you run a test like rubic suggested. Running your cpu at higher will shorten your cpu life eventually. That's what I did when I decided to switch over. I had my H50 in a push/pull pulling cool air in. I experimented with pulling air out of the case and my temps were 3-5c higher.

  12. If you want keep your H50, you need install at least two decent Scythe GentleTyphoon or above in your radiator.

    Yes I have the stock 1600 rpm running with my lighted 1200 rpm in push pull intake. It seems to be running good at 4080ghz and very stable. Played MW2 for 1 hour and it never went over 51c. Idles at 38c. I will get some matching 120mm fans that give me more pressure but for now its cool and stable. I will keep your fans in mind. Thx

    Im gonna stay at 4.1 ghz, I dont need to go higher. I'm dont want to kill it or test how high it can go, I just want to squeeze what I can out of it safely. Ran prime95 torture and I nver went higher then 54c. Idles at 38c. I feel those are safe numbers. I am gonna get some better fans for the push pull set up and yes it must be an intake. I'm thinking about keeping the radiator competely external, have to think this out better because I hate the thought of pumping hot air into my rig.

    You have to keep in mind my case is so small your cooler wouldnt fit at all. I will up some pics of my rig later so you can see what I'm working with. Check out this link http://www.legitreviews.com/article/498/1/ read the last page on the review. Dont ask me why...but I love the case and its been fun to get this rig running right! Keep in mind under my MB I have 2 harddrives on raid 0 with the power 650wt PSU there too. They produce alot of heat on the acrylic panel above and thats where the board is sitting on. I'll get the pics and explain the setup later. This is not your regular air circulating rig though, not even close. I have 3 separate circulating sections in my case. Keep an eye tomorrow and I will post pics if i can. I'm not sure how to yet on this forum.

    #4 only show until "Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file" above that is the FALTA ERROR code that I need.

    And yeah, that means that you aren't stable since prime95 stop for an error and not for user interaction.

    1- Did you build your rig? or is a DEL, HP or Gateway rig.
    2- Do you use the stock cooler?
    3- What case do you have?
    4- Which are you ambient temps?
