Description

So i started off with a pre built gaming rig from my local computer parts supplier, and slowly but surely replaced/upgraded every part. The only thing left from the original PC is a HD which is now just a media drive. The upside to this was that i now have another PC that is actually still pretty fast for this kids to use, because they definitely won't be on this one. I built this PC mostly for gaming and to be completely honest just to say i did. This is actually my first ever build and i am quite proud of it. Of course i will eventually replace the GPU's, but they are surprisingly fast so i will probably keep them for another year or so.

Yeah it does look kind of pink in the pictures. The red led's are much more pronounced in person. Yeah i got lucky with the CPU, guess it was a great batch. I've actually booted into windows all the way up to 4.9Ghz and im pretty confident that i could easily get over 5Ghz but there is no reason to keep it overclocked that high. so 4.7Ghz is where it will stay. It is very stable and cool there. After all this is only air cooled.

With what kind of load do you get the 52C with 4.7Ghz? What is the temperature in your room? I've heard that it can even do 4.8GHz with just 1.2v, but you'd have to be lucky for that. What settings are you using, when overclocking?

My OC is 102.0 MHz with a ratio of 46 witch puts my clock at 4692MHz @ 1.25v. I absolutely did win the lottery with this CPU. I've actually oc'd to right at 5.0GHz and boot windows, but there's no use in keeping an OC that high so i brought it back to 4.69GHz which is still more then i really need for day to day, but it's stable so why not. My room temp is normally around 68F. The 52c load is just general use in CPU heavy games and such, but when i run benchmarks like Prime95 it gets to high 60's C.
