Told you! I knew that CPU wasn't defective. :biggrin:Using a P5Q Pro mobo with 2x2GB G.Skill PC2-8000 sticks running at 1:1.
I finally managed to finally set up my WC today, single cpu loop. Here are the results. Room is now at around 25c with the heater turned on :haha: Looks like the temp diodes are now unstuck! When its back to idle, it still stays at the 33c spot and will not go lower.
Screenies are with prime running/on load.
What do you guys think? Totally normal, yes? Keeping it, yes?
OT, but what should I do next in terms of OCing. BSOD @ anything higher than 4.23ghz. Is the core voltage too high at the moment? I have it under AUTO...
As for the CPU voltage its fine, I would try and keep it below 1.425, so 1.36 is fine. I wouldn't leave it on auto though, set it at 1.3625V and see if you can't get the same clocks. Also look around your BIOS for a vdroop setting, once you find it, enable it, it will ensure the voltage being fed to your CPU is steady.
Once we've found a CPU OC that your comfortable with, we'll look at clocking up the ram. :thumb:
