Windows 7: Post Your Overclock!

Nice pictures and setup.

I see you have it in a push/pull setup from rear exhaust. Is a push/pull setup from intake and change of fans still a possibility?

On paper, two fans running at the exact RPM, make and model would be ideal but in real world performance the push fan should be slightly faster than the pull fan because air being pushed slows down when passing through the rad fins.

Just make sure you get two high static pressure fans if you still plan on changing the fans, the fans mentioned in the initial post are all high static pressure low noise fans for rad setups.

Thanks for the input Nemix77 I will have a look at the fans you mentioned. I appriciate your input. Hopefully I can get a drop in temps. To be quite honest I am setup in a well air conditioned room even at stock idle temps @ 34 to 38C with the H50 I thought I would get better performance.

My Quad Q9650 overclocked to 4.05GHz a 35% increase, just to show what this beast can do, but I run it @ 3.6GHz 24/7.

Nice OC grim. Good to see you back and doing well.

Wonder if I can push my i5 up to 4...hmm...

Ok, here is what I have, stable OC tested with Prime & Everest.
My highest temp was 52 degrees celcius. Currently OCed to 3.2Ghz.
Here is the question I pose, I have looked on multiple forums, no clear answer was found:
Is it worth running my RAM slower than it's capable 1066Mhz for a higher CPU frequency?
If anyone can help me fine tune my OC it would be much appreciated.

I wouldn't. The benefit from the higher overclock would be less beneficial than the Ram performance. A Guy

That's a question of balance. Some people, me, like to have their RAM running at full or near full capability while getting a good OC. Others sacrifice some RAM speed for pure processor speed, figuring the speed of the processor will make up for the lower RAM speed. Again, for me, I go for balance, full RAM at High clock speeds.

My two cents.

thanx blackroseMD1 if u know what your CPU can handle, anything is possible, also on a side note, always keep an eye on the temps...it's obvious that when you OC a CPU chip, naturally the temps go up.
I'm doing better, one day at a time

So very true. And It's one thing to OC to 4gig and get good temps on idle.... What about them at load?

And when you check the load temps, run the program for more than a minute.... unless the CPU is already calling the fire department
