Hi, I just bought a GB Windforce 770 4GB. It has an asic quality of 83.5%. How far have you guys taken this card on the stock cooler?

A:How far have you OC'ed your Gigabyte 770 Windforce 4GB on stock cooler?

According to this write up, you wouldn't get much more out of the card. They mention the card is already clocked near its maximum.

Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB Windforce 3X Benchmark and Review - Page 5 of 18

With our favorite overclocking tool MSI Afterburner we couldn?t get any where when it comes to overclocking. However, with EVGA Precision we managed to slightly bump up the voltage which enabled us to reach a stable 1280 MHz for GPU and 7484 MHz for memory which, we must state again is a very nice overclocking endeavor, especially if you take into a count that we were dealing with a cards voltage that has been locked in the BIOS. Now since the card was already overclocked to its maximum we knew we won?t get much out of it. +50 MHz (1280 MHz w/boost in total) and +233 MHz for memory making it 7484 MHz respectively is probably the maximum you can get from any GTX 770 unless your really really lucky.Click to expand...

Hello everyone. I am a 3D arch viz artist, using 3Ds Max + Vray render. I am looking for additional render power.

My budget is around 2.000 Euros, so I was considering 2 options:

A guy is selling a HP DL580 G7 server, which includes 32 GB ram and 4x Xeon E7540 2 GHz (6-core CPU, based on Nehalem), which is a total of 24 cores / 48 threads.

For the same money, I could buy a 5960X system or 2 systems running a Core i7 4790 CPUs. The hardware in my country is a bit more expensive when compared to USA / EU.

I can't find any benchmarks for the E7540 CPUs, so I am not sure if 4xE7540 would outperform 2 modern 4-core Core i7 CPUs (like the 4790K). That would be 24cores vs 8 cores / 48 threads vs 16 threads.

Vray render uses all of the available CPU cores, no limit there.

A:4 x Xeon E7540 vs Intel 5960X

The 5960X system, if for the same money would be the best buy.

Hi my name is Rafael of Brazil, rode a computer gamer very good, the settings I put down. My CPU is theoretically very good, but I can not play with it, the cooler that comes with the processor does not maintains the temperature when the BF 4 game with full graphics of 50 fps, but a few minutes later he shuts down and restarts in the middle of the game I think the manufacturing cooler's fault, because he goes from 100 degrees (HWMonitor), I will put an exhaust fan and I'm thinking about changing the cooler, am among the Hyper 212 EVO and H60.

Xeon E3 or i7??? I have asked this question before but that has been some time ago. I am needing a good cpu that will be used for video editing for up to 4-5 hours a day. I know a Xeon is made for 24/7 use and comes from a better dye so I was wondering what people's thoughts were. There will be no overclocking so don't go there. Thanks.

A:Xeon E3 or i7

Its going to depend on the chip of course, but I would say in general an i7 would be the better option. If you go with a 6 core 12 thread i7 you will have a very nice video editing machine. Thats my opinion, its in reality going to be up to exactly what your needs beyond just video editing will be to decide what is a better idea.

I accidentally bought a 4770K without a cooler :/

But I have an unused 3770 stock cooler somewhere, would it be OK to use that?


A:Can the 3770 stock cooler be used on a 4770K?

I would say yes after reading the following. It seems the difference mentioned below is all in the backplate design. Since the stock cooler doesn't use a backplate, it is a non-issue.

Noctua Offers Free LGA 1150 Haswell Mounting Kit Upgrade for Older Heatsinks

Because the LGA 1150 socket keeps the same mounting hole spacing as the current LGA 1156 and LGA 1155 sockets, many newer Noctua cooler will not need the mounting kit upgrade, and can simply be installed into the Haswell machine as is. In other words, if the heatsink worked with your Lynnfield, Sandy Bridge, or Ivy Bridge-based system, it will work in a Haswell system as well.Click to expand...

I have read that the CPU TDP rating is not consistent between manufacturers, so you shouldn't try to compare CPU's that way. But what if you are talking about different CPU's from the same mfg? Like AMD.

Once I had a Athlon XP CPU that had a TDP of 60W. I bought a copper heatsink and fan (probably Thermaltake) that kept it under 40 degC all the time, and normally around 35. Now, if I am looking to buy an APU (A6) from AMD that has a TDP of 65W, would it be reasonable to assume that a similar heatsink/fan combo would keep things about the same temp? Assuming that I am doing the same things on the new system?

A:Can I pick a CPU cooler based on TDP?

It might. You are assuming the same wattage consumption will result in a similar CPU temperature but you are not taking into account any differences in efficiency. I don't know the relative efficiency values of the CPUs in question but in the end it probably won't make a big difference.

A:I7 3770 with stock cooler, what are your max temps?

You shouldnt go past 80C on a CPU, otherwise you are killing its lifespan. The Stock Cooler should be better for now. Get a Hyper 212 Evo for $35 if you want. It is very good.

That is a good cooler, but I personally like at your budget range the Thermaltake CLP0575 Frio

But either will do you fine for 4.0ghz on a 3570k

As for more airflow, adding more fans can help, but make sure to just focus on having a good overall flow through the case which will be a huge benefit in general.

Hi there everybody,

I want to get the Corsair H100... but I am not sure if I have to do maintenance on it ? What I mean is if I have to exchange the fluid ? Or do I have to do something else every x months to it ? Or just let it be as in the normal air cooler ? Any ideas ?

A:Corsair Hydro H100 Cooler

It is meant to be zero hassle/no maintenance. It is not like an open loop system in which you have to change the liquid every 6 months. If temperatures begin to get a bit toasty over the years, replace the thermal paste. It has a 5 year warranty so they will replace it if it begins to leak. Always watch for leaks since they can damage the CPU if they get out of control.

I bet you have an ASUS motherboard, they have preset OCs. 41C is fine, but I would recommend buying this cooler just to stay safe: 212 evo&IsVirtualParent=1
It will extend the life of the CPU. Plus, disable turbo boost when OCing.
If you want to go beyond the 4.5GHz mark (look for safe OCs online first), buy this:

You would ordinarily use the I/O USB ports that show at the back of the case which are directly connected to the motherboard. So when you choose your motherboard, pay attention to number and type of USB ports the motherboard provides and decide accordingly. If you need more, you can buy a USB hub or install a PCI or PCI-E add on card for more USB ports.

I am putting together a new build with a hyper 212 plus and some corsair vengeance memory that goes right beside it. The problem is that the hyper 212 extends slightly into the 1st slot of memory. The vengeance memory is way too high with the heatsink on it. What can I do? Can I put the fan on the cooler to pull instead of push or will I lose some cooling? Do I need to get different memory? Can I take of the heatsink on the first stick? Thanks.

A:Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus question

Looking at that memory, it looks like there's a little tab/hole/thing to pry the heatsink off. Don't force it, because you might cause damage. But if you can get it off gently, the RAM should operate fine without it.

I'm not sure about the difference between push/pull cooling, but I think you might lose some efficiency if you set your fan to pull from the other side. I've seen several dual-fan coolers that have a fan on both sides, but every single-fan cooler I've seen has a fan pushing air, not pulling, There's probably a reason for that.

You could also try turning your cooler so it faces another way. This might mean disrupting the airflow though.

But yeah, don't force the heatsink off. If it doesn't behave, you might want to pick different memory, or a different cooler.

If those are the options,go with the ball bearings. Stay away from the sleeve bearings, especially on the HS cooling your CPU. They have a decidedly shorter life span, and in some cases can 'go out' rather quickly.

The stock fans should be enough, but I have a feeling you are going to do a massive over-clock, so every piece of hardware will be affected. The rule is:
front fans blowing in

If you're looking for a tower cooler then I'd look at the Thermalright Archon (49)- it will clear the memory modules and fit the socket area. It also happens to one of the best air coolers you can buy.The only downside could be the height of the cooler (170mm) which may be a little too tall for your chassis. The Prolimatech Armageddon (41) is in a similar vein, although it's cooling ability is a little less.

hello, all

I'm looking at a build based around the core i5 2500k. Usage is for general computing with light gaming (Starcraft 2). the the i5 2500k is probably overkill for that, but i also enjoy having a really good computer for no real reason! (this build is for personal fun as well)

overclocked 2500k
quiet pc, stylish look that won't scare off my gf

what is a good cooler that will sustain the 2500k @ around 4.4GHz? I've looked at the H70, but will something like the H50 (with one less fan) suffice? Or what if I change the fans on either of these coolers?

Im looking at the antec p183. does anyone have experience with how quiet this case is?

I appreciate your help. The overall budget is $1000 CAD before tax (which is 13%)

A:i5 2500k overclock, quiet cooler and case?

I'm running an i7 2600K at 4.6GHz with the H50 cooler. Have two Akasa viper fans on the radiator, but to be honest the default single fan that comes with it isn't too poor. Given that stress testing on the i7 version has to deal with 8 threads the i5 with only 4 should probably be fine with the H50 and default fan for running at 4.4GHz. Only thing is that I got mines with the hope of pushing the overclock a bit higher but find I'm up at 70C with extreme stress testing at 4.6 so mostly it's just a quieter solution to most air only coolers, if you want more headroom in the future I'd probably spend the little extra and grab the H70, or a proper non sealed loop water cooling setup.

Hey guys, I just installed a Noctua CPU cooler and now, once it's turned on, the fans start up but the monitor says "no signal" which I guess means it's not working (I have tried the monitor on another computer and it works fine so I know it's not that; same story with the graphics card and HDD). There is no BIOS. Also the HDD light pops on for about half a second after the computer is turned on but then it goes off.

Any ideas on what's gone wrong? I get the feeling (vigorously) rubbing off the residual thermal compound on the CPU before adding the stuff that came with the cooler might have been a terrible idea but I didn't think that would destroy it?

A:Computer won't turn on after installing new CPU cooler

You should use alcohol to remove old thermal paste and that should come off fairly easily. I doubt if you have done much damage simply by rubbing it hard but what did you use.

The most likely cause for this is that you have used a little too much compound and it has squeezed out and caused an electrical fault on the mobo. What make of paste did you use?

You should remove the cooler unit and inspect and clean the entire area around the CPU, make sure there is no debris from the old or new paste left on the board, use a magnifying glass and bright light. You only need a layer of thermal paste no thicker than a layer of paint to do the job.

The other problem maybe that you have disturbed a connection on any of the mobo connectors or the hard drive, pull off and reseat all the connections.

I'm finding that now that I've got two of them running in crossfire the XFX card I have with the reference ATI cooler is running hot. After last gaming session MSI Afterburner reported 87C max temp. So I've been playing with the idea of selling it and getting another MSI card which comes with a very good cooler, or just buying a cooler (which would probably cost around the same as selling the XFX card and putting money toward a new MSI one).

Anyone got any experience? Any recommended coolers? Tips for installation?


A:Anyone tried replacement cooler for HD5850?

Hi Arris,
This cooler is very good if you want to go the replacement route. I Don't know about prices in Scotland, but here the prices on the 58xx series are very good, and as good as they are probably going to get. as far as installation tips. more GPU's get damaged because people pull straight up when they remove the heat-sink. When you are ready to remove it, gently twist it back and forth keeping it on center until you break the (now very set) thermal compound loose. Be very sparing on the thermal compound as well. it does not take much to cover the small chip.
hope that helps some.

Hello ppl

Have been having some overheat problems with my cpu (i7 @ 920 with coolermaster hyper n520 cooler @1800)

The temperatures with 100% load and max heat with prime95 are 73 C max at the same time I manually measured the temperature at the base and it was about 40 C. I comfirmed that temp by touching it with my bare finger.

Isn't that way big a temp difference? 30 c difference + between cpu and its cooler

It could be that there is not good contact between the base of the cooler and the CPU's IHS. You might want to try reseating the cooler or reapplying thermal paste. Make sure to tighten the mounting screws well for best results.

I own a Core2 Duo E7500 2.93ghz overclocked to 3.2ghz

I recently bought a Rocketfish Universal Cooler and it keeps my overclocked cpu temp at 39 Celsius idle and 55 Celsius under load.

I live in Florida and the house temp is around 78 degrees.

A:Overclocked CPU with aftermarket cooler temp range questions

temps are fine, but if you wanted to test the cooler's limits raise the vcore a bit and monitor the temps via BIOS. when the chip idles in the mid to high 40's (and perhaps into the 50s), try running some CPU intensive applications, then monitor temps again. if the processor climbs into the 60s or 70s on load then i would say that's your limit. you may be able to keep the temps down a little bit with a high-performance thermal compound, but consider that an extra step...

A:P6t Deluxe v2 fan cooler i7 920

Fixed, the solution is in the bios ( and is not turbo mode,standard,disables) , the problem is in windows xp 32 bits

now in full the rpms go to 2200

average temperature of 58 degrees in full to 18xx rpm, jumping moments of 2200

there is a difference now, before the temperature rose and remained on 9xx speed and climbed minimally to 11xx / 12xx now keeps its cool the microprocessor and rises to the numbers above

the secret is not only activate the turbo mode, but get used to the cooler on the changes, leaving 20 minutes, until the heat sink increase its speed until 15xx about to reach 9xx windows again but this time it works properly and elevate 22xx or the maximum of the stock cooler

do not know why this happens, maybe if one day format still works best, and then work as before with Q CPU FAN DISABLED no problem reaching these revolutions

I just got ATI 5850 and a more powerful PSU which start to raise my hardware temp.. the cpu temp is fine, but the graphics card is about 49 celcius and the motherboard is at 63 celcius. the fan is at about 1900round/min when i am not gaming. i think this is little high... so could I do anything like adding an additional fan or something else to improve this situation?

thx in advance!!

The graphics card temp isn't horrid. Like I said in the other thread, if the 63c is your idle NB temp. for 20 bucks you can get a decent NB cooler to bring it down.

You'd think I'd be able to find this information quite easily but no, not even in several of Intel's official documents. Must be looking in the wrong place... Anyways, I'm trying to figure out the dimensions of the LGA 1366 cooler mount holes in comparison to LGA 775. All I can dig up is technical stuff. Basically I just want to know if my 775 waterblock pump would work with a 1366 socket; without actually having a socket B board lying around it's a bit tough. Are the mounting holes the same distance?

If that's confusing this is what i mean:

one stick of ram will give you less heat theoretically but with only using one stick you lose the bandwidth of dual channel memory . ram doesn't put out alot of heat so i don't think you could even tell the difference

So do you splurge on CPU Cooler? Or are bottom-of-the-basement ones good enough for you?

I just got OCZ Vendetta CPU Cooler, only $0 bucks,and $30 before, lol.

So do you buy premium CPU Coolers? What about ones with premium grade?

A:What grade of CPU Cooler do you use?

Looks like a good deal.
I generally get aftermarket CPU coolers as the stock cooler is average at best, pi55 poor at worst.
If you are planning on not overclocking then the stock cooler will be ok. It's effective.
Overclocking then an aftermarket cooler is probably mandatory. I generally overclock so good cooling is a must, although I usually buy and sell CPU's of the same model until I find one that will overclock 25+% without any increase in voltage. Those are keepers and indicate that the CPU will overclock 40-50% while remaining within the manufacturers recommended voltage range thus preserving the warranty and it's lifespan.
The more voltage the better the cooling (CPU, chipset and chassis) needs to be.
No overclocking - stock cooler is fine unless you're looking for bling.
Mild overclock : <40% core frequency increase or <4-5% increase in Vcore -better air cooler
Big overclock - bigger increases than above- Use watercooling and/or Thermoelectric cooling (TEC, also known as Peltier).

(numbers quoted are for Intel CPU's. My knowledge of OC'ing AMD CPU's is fairly limited)

CPU productivity drops off rapidly after 3.6GHz clock speed. Very few programs benefit from running a CPU past this speed, and none scale linearly- a case of diminishing returns.

As for aftermarket air coolers, tower heatpipe coolers generally give better performance than top down coolers but both are dependent upon the fan/s moving the air through the heatpipes and plates.
Good cooler + crap fan = average cooler
Crap cooler + good fan = average cooler

and here (AMD)

thanks for the help.

A:Best cooler other than stock?

Are you planning to overclock?
Will your chassis accept a tower cooler based on a 120mm fan design ? (You will need approx 160mm of space between the motherboard and the side of the case)
From the Techbuy site these are good coolers:

The Cooler Master Hyper 212 would be the best performer.

If you limited to approx <130mm of space then this:

the 3R Systems Iceage 120 (especially the Boss II variant if within your price range), Thermalright Ultra-90, Sunbeamtech Core-Contact Freezer (120 and 92mm fan versions) would also be good choices.

The Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 range are cheap but not a huge step up from the stock Intel cooler- ok if you plan on no (or mild) overclocking.

My second system runs a tower cooler (Sunbeamtech Core-Contact Freezer- the 120mm version) on top of a Q9400 running at 3.6GHz ( 425 x 8, 1.25v in BIOS) 24/7 at 33-37 C idle, 45 C (approx) normal load, 47-52 C using OCCT torture test (Prime95 small/blend FFT). These are summer temps when the ambient (room) temp is 26-34 C.Most good coolers in a well ventilated chassis will give similar results.

Ok, as a christmas gift for my brother I got the components to assemble him a new pc, however I've just hit my first hardware snag while trying to prep the cpu cooler. I picked up a coolermaster Genini which supposedly is compatable with my board, the things is, it requires that the existing mounting be removed.
And while removing the four screws attaching the mounting bracket to the backplate was straightforward, the two peices still refuse to seperate from the motherboard. There was a bit of plastic stuff on the screws so is it likely that the manufacturers glued the peices into place?
And if so, how do I seperate the components without damaging the board in the process?

A:Cpu Cooler Mount

Ah, nevermind, after posting this, I took another look at the board, contemplated a few other posts and tried using a tiny screwdriver to pop the nuts out of the rear plastic housing. Instead the rear mounting plate simply came off, and the front as well. The new cpu cooler is in place.

I have just ordered the Logitech Z-5500 Speakers. I have read many comments about this set, and noticed that alot of people say that you have to keep the sub at least 60cm away from electronic devices, like CRT Monitors. I was just wondering if it would be safe to put it in the range of a printer, and if not, how would it actually effect it?


A:Z-5500 speaker placement

It's not going to affect the printer...

Unless you like to really crank the woofer to where it's causing other things to vibrate uncontrollably nothing will happen. Sometimes audio devices like to interfere with 2.4Ghz wireless devices though so if you notice some static I might rearrange your setup to compensate.

Well I've found that my CPU is bottlenecking my GPU, because when I run benchmarks, and oc my video card's core even 75 mhz I see nearly no difference over many games incl. Crysis.

So to me, its time to overclock!

I would like to discuss some of my options here. To start my system specs:

Rosewill 530W PSU (41A 12V-rail, 80PLUS Bronze certified)
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L Motherboard (P45 Chipset!)
G.Skill DDR1066 Ram 2x1GB
Intel Core 2 Quad 8200

The cooler I expect to purchase is the XIGMATEK HDT-SD964 Here

I have read that a few people managed to get up to a 3.3GHz clock on this CPU, and I would be extremely satisfied if I got a 2.8 to 2.9 GHz clock. (22-26% OC)

Just so you know: 7x multiplier stock 333mhz FSB.

Are my system components good enough for this venture? Will I have to raise my CPU voltage significantly?

A:Q8200 Cooler, and PSU

Since the HD 4870 has a reference clock of 750 mhz, you 75 mhz overclock is only changing it by 10%. I would not use that as definitive evidence that your GPU is being bottlenecked by your CPU. Not that overclocking will hurt, but, since 10% adds up to only 3 or 4 FPS in crysis, I would not worry so much about your CPU as your GPU.

Hello everyone =]

My roommate and I decided to hook up an old pc to our TV (just for the heck of it). The system is an athlon 64 X2 running on 2GB RAM. The GPU is the FX 5500 and we've connected it to an old CRT television.

Connection is: PC to S-video to S-Video/Composite Adapter to TV

Problem? We can only get 800x600 resolution. There is an option for 1024x756, but when we select it, the resolution doesn't change (although the screen flickers as if the resolution is about to change). Has anyone had this problem before?

This low resolution makes things really difficult to navigate through on the TV. You know.... not having enough screen size to work with.

Any help would be appreciated ^^

Hey guys.

I just got the Thermaltake Duorb VGA fan for my 8800 GTS 320MB DDR3 nVidia card.
Before buying it, I had applied Arctic Cooling MX-2 Thermal compound on my stock fan and it had cooled the card from 52C idle to 48C idle (No OC'g)

When I changed the fan and applied OCZ Freeze thermal cpd, the card now runs at 50C (no OC). What am I doing wrong????

On the internet its says that it should have dropped to at least 38C (Duorb idle) from 48C (stock fan idle). I can't understand this...
Help please, anyone?

A:Cooler Master 500 PSU amperage?

The 6A rating you see as part of the technical specs is for the connectors, not for the output power of the UPS IMO.

Insufficient power will not damage your PSU as much as it will damage your UPS via an overload. This is probably why it is not working anymore and the "Overload" light is flashing. Your PSU will try to pull as much power as it needs to convert to DC, and nothing more. Have you recently upgraded your system with a more powerful GPU, CPU or more HDDs? That may be the reason for the overload.

You can just use programs like RivaTuner, ATi tool, or Evga Precision (my favorite) and turn up the stock fan speed if you havn't already.

I tried evwerything, updated drivers, also tried clean reinstall with older drivers, scanned for spywares, scanned for viruses...ETC

I believe that the problem comes from the heat sink that doesn't allow the heat to be diffused properly. I also got a Xfi fatality lately. Could there be a conflict between those 2 cards.
