    Yep - I have a Noctua NH-D14. I'll re-test at 4.5GHz though - because I get roughly the same load temperatures at 4.6GHz with your voltage for 4.5GHz (around 1.29V) as my 4.5GHz which leads me to...

    Yeah, my cable management is fine - I have a Corsair 600T white case. It's just that literally my front intake is being nullified by all the heat generated by the 4 7200 RPM HDDs as well as my SSD....

    I guess so. Haven't seen/heard anyone idling at this low of a voltage with stock settings, though.

    Ah I see - you have some great case airflow. Once I add some case fans and tweak my setup, I'll re-test. I'm almost entirely sure it's because I have 4 7200 RPM HDDs sitting right behind my front...

    Just for reference, offset (negative) mode only worked for me up to 4.4GHz on the same chip. I was able to manage this with a -0.050V offset. When I got to 4.5 GHz, I was forced to use a manual...

    I don't think this is true. I booted up my new PC and never saw stock voltages drop that low - even at idle. Maybe if the speeds dropped to 1.6GHz and it was idling it would go down that low. Try...

    Haha, this is very true. But I wasn't doing anything crazy - voltages at 1.225 is a very reasonable value, and I was closely monitoring temperatures all the time. I think I hit it dead on, by the way...

    Yeah - I figure it's pretty normal for air-cooling. Comparing with a custom water-cooling loop won't give any meaningful information other than the fact that it's simply much better than air-cooling!...

    Frequency definitely affects heat even if you are at a constant voltage. If you want proof, check out this article. Scroll down and see the results when the author fixes voltage at 1.25V and varies...

    I suppose it may be a little warm - but it isn't a fair comparison to yours, because you have a water-cooling loop. It would only really make sense to compare with someone who is overclocking on air...

    Why do you say its hot? I think that temperature is pretty standard given the voltage, no? I'll see what it is without all the HDDs installed - I have a feeling that this is having a larger impact...

    Yikes! What are your peak load temperatures for the hottest core? Something doesn't seem right with your chip - maybe it's one of the chips that just needs a higher voltage?

    Yeah, I was a little...

    I think it's pretty reasonable. I haven't gotten better than 38C for my peak temperature on the hottest core (idling) even at stock settings. So a 10C increase when my voltage is 0.225V higher and...

    Oh? Okay, I'll give it a shot. I've heard that LinX is more exhaustive, but I guess the only way to tell is to try both! I idle around 45-48C idle at a fixed voltage. I'm going to try using offset...

    Overclocking Results - Acceptable?

    Hello everyone,

    So I'm pretty new to overclocking - but after doing some extensive research and such, I think I'm somewhat knowledgeable and won't do anything too stupid.

    Anyway, I've managed...

    From my understanding, the new Intel processors and chipsets are configured so that CPU overclocking should primarily be done through the ratio multiplier.

  20. General Guidelines when Overclocking Specific RAM?

    Hello,

    I'm new to overclocking as I just built my system a few weeks ago - but from what I've read/learned, it's not that difficult to do.

    Given my current system (using stock cooler ATM):
