Default Re: Core i7 Overclocking thread

It hit 90*C so I stopped it. It's a good cooler overall, but once you cross a point the temps go up pretty quickly.

Everybody likes to give that setting their own name for some reason lol; on mine its qpi/dram core. But most of these guides on the web were meant for the C0 cores and use lots of voltage which can actually hinder D0 overclocking. Have you tried leaving everything on default and just playing with a low vcore/qpi? I freak out even getting close to 70c.
I like prime too but I notice ibt/occt make my cpu run a few degrees warmer and seem to make it crap out faster if its going to
