Hi, when trying to overclock my i7 2.66 I am getting under load temps of high 70s or more i was wondering if there is anything i can do to bring the temps down on a 3.1 ghz overclock. My only goal is to be stable running at 3 ghz on air.
I dont know what info you need to help me so let me know what you need to help me out.
Here is my system
CPU: I7 920 2.66 @ 3.1 right now (do stepping)
MOBO: Asus p6x58D
RAM: g skill 3x2 gigs @ 1600 (working fine) @ that speed
Video card: xfx radeon 5850
os: windows 7 64 bit
PSU 750w corsair
the bus is set at 150 with core voltage at 1.208 (auto)
Yes, but not with the side chassis fan installed (at least this is the case with the CM 690, although side fan grills have been slightly relocated with the advanced II, so you may or may not have this problem)
Also the CM690II ADV is two or three mm deeper than the CM690 original
