I've currently got my 955 BE overlocked at 3.81Ghz - on stock cooler. I plan on buying a new after market air cooler (Suggestions would be greatly appreciated :] ) and I just really wanted some expert opinions on whether this is safe?
The computer itself is really stable, I had some defective RAM which I replaced and the new sticks passed a memtest with no errors. Using a torture test on prime95 it sits between 57-60 degrees, is this safe? I'm curious as I've read that 62 is the max, but am I sitting way to close to this? During games it never goes above, 52-58 though.
yes, but don't expect super awesome results from it... it keeps it cool BUT as a closed loop cooler it's not really going to do much better than air... the D14 will actually probably out cool it... the thing I love about it the most is it seems to open up the case and allow for better overall airflow
