Hi,

I overclocked my i7 930 to 3,4ghz and i'd like to know if the temperatures are looking good. I'd like to run this 24/7 actually.

On idle, 3 cores show 37C-38C and 1 core 40C-41C.

On load using prime95, it will vary from 58C to 61C.

Thanks !

Good enough.

using a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus with one fan. I'm thinking adding a second fan to see if it would make a good difference.

Usually, a Push/Pull configuration only helps 1C-2C, especially because the 212+ isn't that large compared to other towers.

Your temps are great, so I wouldn't worry about it. What voltage is that thing at? Is Hyper-Threading enabled?

I basically took that from forums while searching and changed the BCLK to 162 (instead of 172).

Nice low voltage, nice low temps. If it's completely stable, there's nothing left to do really, unless you want to perfect it.

HT could be disabled for a real nice chunk in temperature drops, depending on what you use your PC for. If you're a gamer, in almost every game Hyper-Threading has no benefit... so in most scenarios the large temp drop is more desirable than having HT enabled.

Also, disabling Load Line Calibration would possibly allow you to lower your voltage slightly.

But, like I said... these are really minor, your setup is fine.

Glad to hear that hehe

Only thing i wanted to do is overclock the RAM a bit since i had 1600mhz RAM. After doing it, it BSOD so i guess i must put higher voltage but i just didn't know which one to adjust and then thought that it was fine anyway

If you want your RAM back to 1600MHZ, lower your BLCK from 162 to 160, and change your memory multiplier to 10x.

(160 * 10 = 1600MHz)

You shouldn't have to change any voltages for the RAM, it's already at 1.64v. Just make sure your timings are at the rated settings. I don't know what kind of memory you have... some like 1.65 or 1.66, but unless you have issues with it, just leave it at 1.64v.

EDIT: Also... Differences in memory speed are hardly even there. In fact RAM running at 1333MHz with tight timings vs 1600MHz with looser timings should roughly equal each other, so if you cant get it stable at 1600MHz, don't even worry.

This is the RAM

Yeah, just lower your BCLK to 160 and change your memory mult. to 10x.
