Need to get rid of this tj max crap?

Does anyone know how to bypass this tj max crap? I purchased a couple i7 980X CPUs and I'm trying to get one up to 5.53 but keep maxing out at around 100C...

I understand the risks and have several backup 980s.... I just want to see how long it would last at this (I can deal with a couple months w/o failure). Any help would be appreciated.

More about need crap
  1. Are you for reals?

    I nearly cried when I read that post, I'm gonna hope thats a joke.
  2. are you serious? :pfff:
  3. i7-980X at 100C?

    If I had one I would have it at stock on L2N!|
  4. if your serious, you need some liquid, or L2N on that sucker, before you melt the ozone! :lol: what are you cooling it with???
  5. ^ I'm guessing passive cooling to get those temps

    :lol:
  6. :lol: :lol: :lol: i know...you sure that C with a dot next to it isnt a F?
  7. Wait for his update saying he put a heatsink on it and temps are down to 55'c :P

    :ouch: Can I have one pretty please?
  9. yeah, ill trade you my heat sink for one of them! :lol:
  10. Well, He's doing a 2ghz OC so.....

    Temps like that when you try to air cool are expected.

    He needs a L2N pot.
  11. It most be nice to not worry about cooking a $1000 processor I mean dam you got the money for a couple 980s you got the money to do a L2N setup.
  12. yeah, why do you have so many? sharing is caring! :lol:

    Liquid Nitrogen? The only way your getting to those speeds....


    Any other method, the temps would fry or melt cpu and/or motherboard if the TJ max wasn't there.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxNUK3U73SI (maybe old but still proves the point, without it the intel cpu's would have failed like the amd cpus.)
  14. TJ Max is there to prevent your cpu from literally dieing, you want to go past that you might as well just throw the cpu in the trash as it will die and never work again.
  15. I feel your pain Bently1981. I made the mistake of going into a TJ Max with my girlfriend and it took me 4 hours to get here out of there! It was insane!

    If you really want to get rid of TJ Max, you could try opening your own store to compete with them. You could also try moving to a town that doesn't have a TJ MAX.

    Good luck!

    :lol: nice one.
  17. Aw bummer you can't pass water's boiling point.

    Maybe you'd have better luck tossing it into a fire. ;)
  18. You mean the new george foreman grills??Nvidia crock pot.I dont even have my system fully running and its hot.

    Speaking of it, EVGA should really offer a version with a 10-year supply of bacon, maybe 5...mmmmm

    Why? Ati didn't with the 4870 x2 or the 5970 which run at about the same temp.

    You cant Crossfire 4 4870X2 or 5970s can you?

    Who cares, the individual cards are running just as hot as the GTX480's run but the ATi fanbois seem to want to paint a picture of the Nvidia cards being the only ones that run a bit on the warm side and that just isn't entirely accurate is it?
  21. Yep, my good ole 4850 could stomp that measly 91C. 110C FTW!
  22. Quote:
    Im not sayin AMD cards dont run warm, im sayin that Nvidia cards run on the warmer side of the equation.. especially in extreme conditions ;)

    Under extreme conditions any card will run hot but the Nvidia cards just handle it better, or did you not see the article that had this little picture accompanying it?

    But considering the GTX480 is single-GPU and 40nm it does run slightly hot for the performance.

    Hey, was just havin a little fun, i did exaggerate a bit so if i mislead anyone i apologize ok?

    :)



    You hurt his feelings. But lets all remember that the 5870 does with 2 billion transistors that the GTX 280/285 couldn't.

    :)

    The problem is that exaggerations get taken up as fact and then blown out of proportion and before you know it people are going to saying that the cards run at those temps under all and any condition, so rather than just jumping on the bandwagon try posting something to back up any of these wild claims and if you feel the card gets hot enough to cook bacon on then post some proof, i.e bacon being cooked on one of the cards in question.
  25. You can't cook anything with Fermi. It would be ideal for keeping food warm in food service applications however.

    As would several of the ATi cards that have been released. [:mousemonkey]

    Weird. I have 2x Sapphire 5850s running stock in my box on a MSI 790FX-GD70 mobo and Mushkin DDR3 and an AMD Phenom II x4 B50 @ 3.675GHz.

    I've run everything from web games to Civilization III to Darkfall on it.

    Not had a video crash one, and I am runnin the 9.12 drivers under Win XP Pro x64. Not done a lot under Windows 7 x64 Pro, but what I have been in there it's never crashed either in Crossfire mode or regular.

    Hope you get yours fixed


    And how does problems with select cards make the whole thing "Crap"?

    Explain the Next two then, Thank you.

    You might want to go rooting around the various graphic card forums for the answer to that as I can't be bothered to argue with you any more.
  29. Fermi is far from awesome and destroying everything. I hope next generation ATI stops playing around and steps up to a 512 bit bus and starts adding more ROPs to their cards.
  30. Yes, the 4870X2 and 5970 run extremely hot.

    Hell, I have a 4890 that idles at 60c.

    However, these single GPU 480s are the hottest single GPUs I have seen. Enough to make note of I think. :)

    Either way you're both right!

    Much can be argued about both.

    The 5970 is going to have better heat&power to performance ratio along with price.

    However the GTX 480 has shown to have extreme scaling abilities (up to 89% if I remember right). And, like it or not, GTX 480 tri sli is the strongest setup available.

    The 2900XT served as a nice industrail cooker.
  32. Ok, so we went from Tj Max to Fermi and the 2900XT?
