More about worth upgrading 1055t oced 6350
  1. I would say so, you could OC the FX6350 to likely about 5.0 GHz, and even if you don't OC, the stock clock @ 3.9 GHz will be VERY fast.

    Well worth it...you should see some good FPS increases in the newer games.
  2. yep 6350 is better overall than the 1055T, also handles DRAM better
  3. tradesman and 8350rocks are both correct, especially in regards to DRAM control.
  4. thanks for the advice all.already ordered it.

  7. the cpu works great...run bf3 1080p with medium and rarely i get below 60 fps...however the 7870 temperature went a bit up....reaching 75 max in game....should i get another fan for my mid tower?...my air flow is kinda bad inside
  8. Prob be worth it
  9. i opened the case and it doesnt go over 60....
  10. What is your fans setup for airflow - pulling from the front and pushing exhaust out the rear is the norm
  11. yup....front means where the psu is right?cpu fan towards gpu and gpu fan towards the back
  12. PSU is normally at the back of the case where the majority of your ports are like video, ethernet, keyboard, mouse, etc that case fan should be pushing air (heat) out of the case
  13. i fixed it by moving the cpu cooler fan to the other side..60-65 degrees now...monday i will get a case fan and evreything will fall into place...will post updates
  14. Sounds like a plan, keep us updated
  15. btw the cpu fan should be blowing air away from cpu and not towards the cpu right?
  16. I set them blowing air over the CPU towards the exhaust fan idea is for the cool air to come in the front, blow it over the CPU to the back and take the hot air out so it doesn't remain in the case
  17. Not rlly helping here but u said ur getting 60ish fps with bf3 at 1080p with a 7870/fx6350 on medium? that setup is capable of ultra slightly below 60fps and high easily prob 60fps, i get 35ish with my 1055t oc and 6770, and 60fps high with a 5850 at 1080p
  18. tradesman-well like in the picturies cant really put them to blow over,just through...i put the fan to blow towards the exhaust fan,if i put through the cpu i think it will be cooler but last time i tried it,dust formed quickly on the cooler.
    lazyboy-i mean min 60 fps....some parts in bf3 maps,especially b2k maps have fps drops(poorly optimized maps i guess).i want it to run min 60 fps all the time. i tried ulta and it runs on 60ish fps
  19. By over the CPU, I mean it attaches to the fin stack, so basically it's blowing into the stack, over the fins to push heat towards the rear of the case, It's a Hyper 212 EVO and looks like a picture of one...and yes dust will collect, keep a can of compressed air around and blow out your fans and case, I'm in Arizona and you can't escape dust

    I see makes sense
  21. well my processorg doesn't have temp problems,it goes max 62.for now il leave it like that.Will put the fan like you said if the fan case won't improve the gpu temperature,since the cpu fan is quite close to the gpu it will cool it down a bit i guess
  22. Let us know how it goes
  23. will do,thx for the great tips
  24. We'll be here
  25. well i bought a nanoxia fx evo at 1600 rpm fan case and it drastically changed the temperatures....in game 65 max at gpu and 61 at cpu...the cpu is idle at 40 degrees...is that normal temperature?
  26. The HSF is orientated wrong (90 deg off). It should be facing out the back of the PC. Ideally with another fan mounted on the back of the case to help push the hot air out.

    You generally don't want extra hot air blowing through a Power Supply. It makes it work harder when the parts are hotter.

  27. HS fan is matter of preference, I normally start with one blowing into the heatsink - towards the back so the exhaust fan on back of case blows hot air out....some, particularly AMD tend to pull from the bottom of the case (makes no sense, hot air from video card)
  28. will try like that and see how it runs
  29. Let us know

  31. well now with the fan pointed to the back of the pc it stays at 44 in idle,but goes 60 max in game.is that ok?
    btw:when i use core temp it is 26 degrees in idle,but with cpuidhardwaremonitor or speed fan is 44 on timpin1,which matters most?
  32. I'm having the same problem, idle temps can't go below ambient temperature. Take this with a grain of salt and this is information from one reply to my thread. idle temps are highly inaccurate but temps with cpu running under load are more or less accurate.
