Windows 7: Post Your Overclock!

I love the H50. I have the Corsair 800D case as well. I have 5 x 120mm fans (3 on top pulling hot air out, and 2 on the H50 rad for push/pull setup. It pulls cooler outside air into the case) and 2 x 140mm Fans (one on the hot swap tray and 1 in bottom section). The thing I love the most about the H50 is the lack of worry of a sealed unit plus the quite operation of the H50. It is a great setup. Very happy with corsair over these products! Fan for life now.

Well so far I have a minor OC.
What I have is the C2Q Q9450 (stock 2.6Ghz) running at 3.2Ghz
Kingston HyperX 1066Mhz running at stock with a FSBRAM of 3:4. Timings set at 5-5-5-15
Everything is stable, temps are fine :-)
My next goal is to tighten the RAM timings a bit, then maybe OC the video card a little bit just to see what it is capable of.

Decided to see how far I could go without bumping the voltage. Looks like I may have topped out here...

Surely 1.344v isn't stock voltage.

Haha, good point. I meant without me going in and changing any voltages manually. If the voltages were raised, then it did it on it's own. Best OC I've gotten so far, although temps are a little high. Idle is around 50c, load is between 75 and 80.

If you manually set the voltage you may find you can lower temps and maintain your OC at considerably lower VID.

Yeah, I was looking at that in my BIOS, but it was pretty confusing. I've never messed with voltages when OCing before, so I don't want to go in and blow out my CPU because I made a dumb little error.

I was thinking about trying to raise the bclk and lower the multiplier instead. Not sure how that effects voltages though.

Not likely you will damage the chip by lowering the voltage. Changing the bclk and multiplier won't have any impact on the auto VID if the same clock speed is the result. The bios always over-compensates VID when OCing at "Auto" VID settings.

For instance, if I leave VID set to Auto, the bios runs voltage up to 1.375 to OC @ 4.0, yet if I set it manually it only requires 1.250 to achieve the same result 24/7 prime stable with a 12 degree reduction in temps.

I don't suggest you do anything you're not 100% comfortable with. Yet there's no reason to accept higher temps and excessive voltage that's not necessary to achieve the same result.
