Arctic Freezer A30 66 degrees at stock speed? Tags: Heatsinks Arctic Overclocking Last response: May 11, 2012 9:47 AM in Overclocking Share envator May 5, 2012 8:05:00 PM Hi, I just got my new rig with the Arctic Freezer A30 and I am trying to overclock my Phenom II x4 965 BE. However, when running prime95 (blend) im getting 66 degrees, at stock speed. I am using Titan Nano Grease for compound, and I believe that it is correctly applied. CPU Speed: 3,4 GHz Multiplier: 17,0 Bus frequency: 200 Mhz CPU Voltage: 1,400 V (should I try and change any of these? I am not a very experienced overclocker) Specs: ASUS M5A97 AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 1TB Seagate Barracuda Gigabyte Radeon HD6870 OC Hantol 800W PSU Cooler Master 430 Elite Is it something I'm doing wrong or did I get a bad cooler? Thanks alot, /Alex More about : arctic freezer a30 degrees stock speed _zxzxzx_ a b K Overclocking May 11, 2012 9:47:56 AM Those temps are on the high side. You could reduce the voltage to around 1.25-1.3v to lower your temps. I'd make sure that the thermal paste is applied properly & case airflow. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
