I'm just wondering if my watercooling loop will help with a better overclock with Ivy bridge. I have the loop set up as a dual 220mm XSPC rad and 420mm XSPC rad with fans in push pull configurations, A full EK GPU block cooling a Radeon 5870 and finally I have the XSPC Raystorm CPU block. I'm wondering if 74c temps sounds ok at 4.5GHz at 1.225v CPU load only?

I'll take screenshots latter on. The rest of my computer info is in my sig below.

here is the screenshot.



it's acually 74c

Those temps are awfully high considering you have that amount of rad space. I think it's because of Ivybridge's IHS, it can run up to 20C hotter than sandybridge!

that's what I'm thinking but this is the first time I put my fans in pull and the push next to one another. The Rads are XSPC EX 240 amd EX 480.

Geez. Im at 4.5ghz on a sandybridge and i never break over 60C even with my two 460's...

But then again i would have to clock my cpu to 4.7ghz to compare to your 4.5 ivy.

my core i5 gets way over 80c on those clocks lol. I run @ 4.2GHz, 1.16V and with corsair Hydro H60 and I get over 70c on load with cpu benchmarks. So personally I think its fine. At 4.5 GHz it did hit the 90s so I pulled it back to 4.2

I'm going to do an experiment. even though I'm using a Radeon 5870 in the same loop I'm going to see if the Intel HD 4000 graphics has somthing to do with the temps on ivy. So I'm going to try 500MHz and go all the way down to 128MHz if I can and see if lowering the clock on the Intergrated graphics has anything to due with temps. I wish Intel sold an LGA 1155 ive bridge without the HD graphics. Unless any one knows how to disable the graphics.

ok I did the experiment. I found the option to turn off the Intel HD 4000 graphics but makes no difference. I'm still wondering if that could be part of the temps for the CPU. It also dose not help that Intel used cheap TIM for the processor.

I love this CPU. I was originally going to get the Core i7 2600k but newegg had this one with a $15 gift card wich would put it at just the ivy just $20 more than sandy plus lower power consumption.
