  1. EDIT: Now £25



    £30 for both ram sticks (paypal)



    Some heatspreader fins are bent and the red paint is chipped (see photos below)


    One stick is 2133mhz (C9) and the other is 2000mhz (C8), both are v7.1 (PSC chips).

    I had to send them to someone else for max overclock testing as I didn't have a platform that could push the ram's to their max. Quickly binned in dual channel. The person that was testing them for me got 2400 7-11-7-28 1T at 1.82v set in bios, however I can't guarantee that its able to hit that speed as i haven't tested them at such high speed myself.

    On P45 chipset (socket 775, limiting memory controller) I was running them at 6-9-6-20 72 1960mhz.







  2. Is it possible that using a water chiller would let me get higher speeds without delidding? It's not so serious that i'd risk breaking my new CPU for faster speeds. I'm looking at the options and I'm not quite sure where to start with water chilling in regards to amps or pump potential. Could I also cool my GPU the same way with the chiller?


    EDIT: Now that I think about it, isn't 88C on even AIO Water pretty high? Shouldn't it be lower than that normally? I might just have a thermal paste issue here.


    Yes it is totaly possibe to get higher speed, but you should delid before you even thing of using a water chiller. You could probably get 5ghz easily with a water chiller. It costs quite a lot to set one up considering the temp drop . You're better off buying single stage phase cooling which is much lower temp than chiller, and will allow you to go much higher in cpu ghz.


    Delliding can drop the temps by as much as 8c with the same cooling, so consider doing that first. There are delidding tools available that let you delid the cpu risk free. You can do it using a blade which is like $0.20 which is a cheaper option but you will be risking damaging the cpu.

    at that voltage, no. That is actually very decent for an aio

  3. If he just simply joined separate rails together, then its not quite single rail. In reality each rail will have slightly different voltage, and thus the rail with the highest voltage will feed the component (eg. gpu) until that rail drops in voltage due to stress and goes down to the voltage level of the other rail that's when the other rail starts to get used. It might trigger OCP, since this isn't true single rail.


    Im also not sure how well psus respond to one rail backfeeding another due to one having higher voltage than another. Edit: thinking about it im preety sure psu manufactures have that covered and use diodes etc. to prevent that from happening

  4. So... Winter Air would be considered Extreme? BC i managed, that my e8400 was ideling at about 5°C on water (-12°C ambient + 2 Server Fans on 240mm RAD) ;)





    would putting the rad outside my window count as "extreme" :D


    I think its a very bad idea to put water cooling into the extreme category. Pushing water cooling to its limits does not make the cooling extreme. water cooling was never designed to be extreme in the first place



    even the more innovative ways of using water to cool the cpu such as garden hose cooling should still count as water cooling and not be classed under extreme, otherwise this sub would make me extreme overclocker, which many people will agree im far from :D


  5. the default voltage on my bord is 1.30v so.

    And yesd i like to overclock, depending on what cooler i have, but totally unformelir with skylake, and not having a bord to max the cpu i whant it at a overclock for 24/7 not for benching


    The default voltage is not programmed into the bios.

    Each CPU has their default voltage (known as VID) set during the manufacturing process, as intel bins each cpu. CPU's which require less volts for stock clocks will have lower VID than the ones which require more voltage for the stock clocks. That's why you can have 2 cpus which are indentical and have the same batch and revision number yet they have different default voltage.

  6. Thx guys!!


    With little gimmick.:D:P





    Awesome idea, I'm interested in how heat transfer capabilities are like compared to the stock IHS. Waiting for results :)


    Tip: next time don't use comic sans font, Its horrible :P
