Default Re: Need some comments on this deal

The water pump died on my H60 after a power outage and my CPU started overheating so it was running slow and shutting down often. Went back on air for a bit while I RMA'ed it. The new one gets far lower temps than my old one, so I think my old one had a faulty pump to begin with. In fact, I did some further tweaking by upping the voltage to 1.38v and overclocked to 4.5Ghz. Been running stable for 24 hours with OCCT (which IMO is better than Prime95) and the temps sit around 75C at full load.

EDIT: Observed a crash, adjusted the clock to 4.4Ghz and voltage to 1.385v, seems good now.
