I just started OC about 2 days ago. Starting to enjoy it a lot it's addictive can you please let me know what your thoughts and suggestions are and if I'm heading in the right direction with my OC settings.
Here are my system specs
HAF X 942 Chassis (4fans standard that came with case, Top Left Back Front)
intel 990x extreme 6 core (V8 CoolerMaster installed)
Nvid Evga GTX 580 x2 superclocked fermis
6 GB Corsair Dom GT 1866 (this wednesday will be replaced by 12gb Corsair D GT 2000mhz)
Asus Rampage Xtreme 3 MOBO
intel 510 series SSD 250GB
Corsair 1000w PSU
LG blueray / DVD
Windows 7 64 HP
When I did CineBench Testing for CPU the score was 11.52 but core 0 , 5 , 4 reached 83 degrees. @ 100% load
CineBench OpenGL was 50.92 fps (all settings high quality in nvidia settings) temp was in 40s
When I play battlefield 3 my temps are 50-60.
Do I have inadequate cooling? If so what do you recommend? I was thinking of buying the corsair H100 hydro series what do you think>?
Is 50-60 ok for games like BF3 long periods of time 10 hours straight?
I'd like to add some pictures I took of my BIOS settings and CPUID they are stored on my PC and I'm not sure of how to get them on here. If anyone can let me know how to put them on here I'd appreciate it.
