Sounds totally fine to me noober, nothing to worry about there

For moving air there is going to be some noise. I think the Noctua fans will do well balancing noise with a lot of CFMs. Another is the Corsair SP series and the Cougar Vortex PWM fans.

welp, after all that, i finally settled for my original 4.2GHz. i just dont like the temps im getting at 4.5 GHz.

anyway, here are my results playing BF4 on full 64 player seige of shanghi with 5 mins of playing time for each test:

_________________________________

4.2GHZ

Max Temp Prime: 65C
Max Temp BF4: 58c
Max FPS: 124
Min FPS: 54
AVG FPS: 72.857


4.5GHZ

Max Temp Prime: 76c
Max Temp BF4: 66C
Max FPS: 150
Min FPS: 55
AVG FPS: 76.430

so what do you guys think? stick with 4.2 and forget about it, or switch to 4.5 and forget about it?

Min FPS is only 1 FPS lower and 8 degrees cooler while gaming, I'd stick with the 4.2 GHz unless it causes a noticeable difference in gameplay.

How is the CPU stability at 4.5 GHz?

thats what i was thinking... average is about 4 fps more... but i think that is because of the max fps being 26fps more... its 100% stable at that speed @ 1.224 playing games and 1.208 prime

The new Noctua industrial fans are assume, 4mm/h2o, up to 2k rpm. Not beat about with a ugly stick.

Do you have a link? Newegg has no Noctua industrial fans listed.
