Never had any lockups to speak of. just the sound-video always works too.


if I turn the amp on and off (where the HDMI goes) it will eventually work (usually 1-3 times max)

Either the power supply is adequate, or it isn't. It's not as though, for a given CPU / GPU combination, more watts = more performance.

This has been true since the dawn of personal computing. The Altair 8080 itself suffered from an inadequate power supply, which sufficed to satisfy the base configuration but fell well short of providing for the needs of a fully expanded system with 8k of RAM and interface cards to support a monitor, tape drive and keyboard.

Hard to beat the 212. Upgrade the fan and see even better results. I went all out and got the Scythe Ultra Kaze fans. Sounds like a r/c copter when maxed, but it moves some serious air. It can also cut some serious flesh. Chopped about 1/4" off of one of my fingertips one day poking where I shouldn't have. The rest of the case also has 4 more Kaze fans, moving 133cfm each. Front to rear flow, with another fan directly in line of the 212 pulling air out the back of the case, and one more or less in line pushing in the front of the case. I have a nice front controller though, so I can tune them down a bit, though I always have a box fan blowing anyway, so the ambient noise doesn't bother.

At 48 degrees at full blast i wont even waste my time on upgrading the fan. We shall see what the temp shows when i push it up to 4.5gz. Currently i'm at 4.1gz so we'll see.

pretty damn decent for aircooled imo... im pushing 4.8Ghz FX-8350 on water and I get a max of 70c, however I think my voltages are set a bit too high, need to fine tune a bit more.

I might need to do that polishing the heat spreader, i cant believe that slipped my mind when I polished my water block.

48C under load? If so that is really good. At stock speed, I think I was getting around 54C, and after upping to 4.6Ghz it went to around 66C. I was getting a little instability at 4.6Ghz so I dropped to 4.5Ghz and it was better. It may have been my pretty aggressive memory timing and overclock making the somewhat low barrier that I couldn't cross. I bet it could have gone farther had I left my FSB alone and just upped the multiplier. But I pushed the FSB pretty far for the memory speed.

Sadly, my upgrade from my Phenom II X4 965 to the FX-8350 was not beneficial to processing times. I had the overclock at 4.2Ghz, vs 4.5Ghz on the FX-8350, yet using benchmarks and other testing software, my times actually suffered. That was a let down. Temps were about the same on both.

What memory was it? I can reprogram ddr1s and 2s but we dont have a ddr 3 ramcheck yet.

Yes 62 at full load before, now with the cooler + lapping job i'm at 48c. I didnt waste my time testing the cooler before/after the lapping job though. People that have done tests say 4-5C from a lapping job. IMO thats quote a big drop especially since all it takes was 20 minutes for the cooler and about 35-40 mins for the cpu (softer touch on the cpu since its fragile) Also yes the cpu was quite warped.

You can see the semi complete pic. Mid is cleared, the corners are barely starting to clear while the area between the middle and the corners took the longest time.



Also see this.

DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaw 1600, slightly overclocked. 16Gb worth, in 4GB modules. Hmm, I might need to do a lap job (lol) on mine as well. The pipes on my 212 have never been completely flat and even with each other. I'm probably overdue for a good cleaning too. The front of the case has foam filters, and I know they are probably blocked. I don't do much gaming or anything strenuous anymore though, so it never gets a workout like it used to.

62C is hot! 62C is the max temp for my 1100t. I'm running the old 212+ and have no problems keeping it under 45C at load. I'm not really overclocked though (3.7ghz).

Is the purpose of lapping the CPU and heatsink to make them flatter or to polish them?

I've always heard that as long as the surface was flat the finish didn't matter.

Flatter. The surfaces might look pretty flat, but being as they aren't exactly flexible, even a few thousandths of an inch would matter. The less thermal compound, the better.

I'm running an a10-6800k, max rated temp of 75c but at 62c theres more room. Still though the cooler dropping it down to 48c is quite nice. Currently running at 4.5 ghz. So yeah stuff gets hot.

62 isnt too hot though, most video cards run at 70-80c

pfft Haswell intels can comfortably sit at 75c, because by nature they run hot as ****.


after about 5 hours, I finally adjusted my voltage to a more finer tune, so now im maxing at 65c on a massive 4.7Ghz 8 cores without BSoD

Side note: the radiators turn into a nice leg warmer at this clock.



Still need to lap, but I might get myself to do it when I swap out the coolant this month.

What mobo again? I upgraded to a 990FX from a 990X. I was able to OC to 5Ghz on the 990x due to the bottle neck in transfer rate; but when I OCed to the same clock at the same settings on the new board it went kaput. Then on OC.net I learned about the threadspeed bottle neck difference. I had the sads.

Damn it. You guys are making me have to get my machine back in shape. I forgot a few months ago one of my fans started making noise, and in a fit of rage at not being able to tell which one, I unplugged them all. Need to sort that mess out now and get them all hooked back up to the controller, and clean the filters and try to tweak some setting again.
