When I'm running at stock speed and vcore, I'm getting about 47-49C on idle and 57C on full load. Case temp is 38C.
When I'm running at 3.7Ghz and 1.6 vcore, I get about 50C on idle and 61C on full load.
The room temperature is about 29C. Are those temps about right for a lapped XP-120...
i did a vtt mod on my ic7-max3, which is about the same as the ic7-g, and everything works great. i've been up to 3.4v vdimm and the vtt is where it should be. it's a worthwhile mod if you have ram that loves volts
it increases the vdimm. most boards only have an option up to 2.8v but this allows it to go up to 3.9v (depending on board). this also gives clean power directly from the psu instead of using power that goes through the board first
most of the time more voltage will allow more speed and...
lol ok. i'll have to figure another way to mount fans since i dont have my case horizontal
yeah by the time the ram dies from the voltage, it'll about time to upgrade the system anyway :p
ok thanks dude
omg that's f*n sick! oh i wonder how the booster would do on my corsair twinx1024-3200ll bh-5. how much voltage can bh-5 safely take? lol how hot are your sticks?
holy crap i was thinking about buying new pc4000 but now maybe i dont have to
eva2000: i read your post at bleedinedge. how did...
62.01 is now out. dl it here
i'm running these on my 6800gt with mixed results. 3dmark03 score went down by 1000. used to get 12600 but now 11500. far cry performance is better though. i think that's a good trade off.
it's always pretty warm in my room but i dont know the exact temp. if i was down stairs, my temps would drop a few degrees
yeah temps dont seem to raise that much with core changes. i went from 400 to 415 and the temp stayed the same
