OC Settings ok? i7 950 Tags: CPUs Cooling Intel i7 Last response: November 18, 2010 1:48 AM in CPUs Share dimurof82 November 17, 2010 4:29:55 AM Just built another rig, this time it's Intel, i7 950. Here is a screen shot of the OC settings. I'm going to be doing a stability test with it overnight tonight but I want to make sure these settings look ok. It's on stock cooler with these settings, idling at 52 degrees.. I plan on getting an aftermarket cooler very shortly. Everything look ok or should I change something? http://i815.photobucket.com/albums/zz73/dimurof82/i7OC4... http://i815.photobucket.com/albums/zz73/dimurof82/i7OC4...

Check temps m 0 l dimurof82 November 17, 2010 4:46:41 AM What's the agreed upon max temp for these chips? I'm usually working with AMD so I'm not too sure whats considered too hot for these. 52 did seem pretty high at idle. m 0 l Related resources i7 950 OC Temps - Forum i7 950 OC help!~! - Forum i7 950 oc to 3.8 vs 4.0 - fps related question - Forum can an i7 950 oc'd at 3.8ghz handle ddr3 2133mhz - Forum I7 950 4.0 or 4.2 oc question - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Then I'm going to put it back to stock until I pick up a different cooler.. I ran Prime for 3 minutes and the temp hit 92.. I stopped it right away.. You guys recommend any particular coolers for these? Pref air. m 0 l dimurof82 November 17, 2010 5:09:32 AM Quote:80c is fine under load.COOLERMASTER HYPER 212 IS GREAT. Great, thanks for the reco..

I'm not even sure how to adjust it.. I've never really dabbled in mem OC'ing.. I've seen settings like 7-7-7-2x, and 8-8-8-xx. What do you recommend? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
