    Nice, Uncle Dude! :)

    ~~~~~

    The story is that my CPU overclock is fundamentally messed up. I turned off some CPU power management setting in the BIOS and that fixed the performance problem.

    But then I ran Prime95 and after only 30 minutes I saw a CPU temp at 91. I am told that program needs to run for 6 hours, and temps need to stay under 90 while doing it. :3eyes:

    So I'm gonna have to start over on OCing my 2600k. Clearly the way I was taught to do it isn't correct. I am gonna drive to work and print out some guides I found (no printer at home).

    Good stuff, TwoPlusTwo. Good luck with overclocking that 2600K :)
    What CPU cooler do you have, by the way?

    Up and running. Took a little Dremel and drill work to make room for all the rads, and it sure ain't pretty, but damn they are effective. Well worth it for the sale price.

    Well done, throttling a thing of the past now. :)
    It's quite amazing the temps Keplers keep with good cooling, @ around 90% load while gaming i'm around 50C max.

    I currently have a Hyper 212 EVO. Wouldn't be opposed to getting a better one. Let's see how this OC goes.

    Thanks. Performance is identical to my old 580/Accellero Xtreme, where I was able to hit 47C in the Heaven benchmark at 80% fan speed. Unfortunately, with the stacked power connectors, that hsf is not an option. Still, I like this setup; looks kind of Mad Max/Stealth Fighter with it's black angular shroud. However, think I'm going to clean things up a bit and run those ugly fan cables behind the mobo to my fan controller.

    As I understand it, the Hyper is a very good cooler - not the best but easily capable of 4.5 - 4.6 GHz on a Sandy Bridge. Be sure it's fully seated.

    Just curious, what kind of voltage were you needing for your oc? While you're running Prime95, I'd have HWMonitor or Cpu-Z open to be sure getting only what you called for under 100% load. If it spikes up, your Load Line Conditioning is set too high.

    I ran p95 that high but that was at 4.9ghz
    heres a newbie oc guide based on SB on the p67 chipset

    I would invest in a better cooler tbh

    It looks like it's gonna be 4.2 GHz on the CPU.

    EDIT - Yeah, I'm sticking with 4.2 GHz.

    Ok now that I have your attention...Can someone with one of the Gigabyte GV-N680OC-2GD graphics cards please post your power target and voltage @ stock?

    Would you guys recommend Artic coolers for my Palit Jetstream 680s? My temps reach over 80c playing demanding games without overclocking. Doesn't help that it's 30-40c where I live right now.

    Try replacing just the paste and see how that goes, remember to tighten down real good.

    I have to admit that I love the looks of my Palit 680 JS, its cooling capacity/efficiency is crap. Well, for a 2,5 slot card.

    I play mostly with fan @60-75%. It's helps of course that the noise does not bother me, I like it actually. But many, many other people, do not.

    I wouldn't worry about it - they are designed to run that hot. Though, looking at the design of your card, I'm surprised at the temps:

    My concern was strictly noise-related, as my reference-design 680s would ramp up quite a bit in Far Cry 3 and other graphics-intensive games . The Arctic hybrid coolers perform amazingly, and are as quiet at full load as at idle. They are a pain in the @ss to install, but at the $99 sale price, are a great buy in my eyes.

    I dropped 20C off my load temps after a thermal paste change on my triple fan. went for the diamond based.
    i have pics to prove it btw.

    Just browsing the internet right now after a cold boot. My GPU temps are 59c & 49c (no OC). My GPU is 47c (no OC), but I'm fitting a Noctua NH-D14 today.

    Hey milamber, typo at "CPU is 47c ". Also my Palit hovers at 27-28c now with fan at default(30%).

    But its around 12-14c outside. Inside is a bit warmer. No heating or anything btw. I'm poor. :p

    I'm wondering how our cards are gonna hold up under the new cryengine on full show in Crysis 3.
    Personally i dislike AA and Post Processing effects, but still ..after i seen how my gpu runs full boost utilizing around 88% average in Ghost Recon Future Soldier i'm not too confident.

    Patience my friend, patience.. :D

    Do you have any doubt it will make our GTX 680 kneel when already HM:A and FC3 do? Unless, its very well optimized..
