DIABLOTEK 500w / NEW SENTEY900w
lg dvd drive
and i bought recently another 2 coolermaster fans 200rpm
Well, the problem is , after i installed de sentey i was hoping for better performance but, no im just getting higher temperatures (65celcius) , and before with my 500w psu, i was getting 45celcius. Im thinking about changing the thermal paste, but im really ocnverned about this, beacuse i havent even overclocked it yet, and im hoping to do it whan i get my new cpu cooler.
PS: Tuis build i for fsx, if you can give me some advice about how to get better performance i'd really apreciatte it.
If you are planning to overclock pick up OCCT, Prime95, HWmonitor, Coretemp and Realtemp.
These will help you test for stability and monitor your temps.
Run OCCT for an hour to test OC then for true stability P95 for 8hrs+
Have you already brought a new cooler or still deciding, if so whats your budget?
I normally up my multiplier and run occt for 1hr and continue until it fails occt, this is when you will need to start increasing the cpu voltage one step at a time until it passes. Once you reach your max OC, i.e. you don't want to add anymore voltage (I never go past 1.5v)(keep you cpu under 70C while running occt) you can then double check your OC by running P95 for 8hrs+. This has always worked for me.
You may find that a slight reduction in voltage will be a slightly lower OC but everything will be that much cooler, thats the OC I always look for, not the maxed out, high voltage burning up one.
Just keep an eye on your temps and check as you go along.
