Call me a sticker to the old ways but imho the best oc is the fine tuned one on bios.
It'll definitely be the one giving the best max results, but I'm still pretty impressed by the effectiveness of PBO.Call me a sticker to the old ways but imho the best oc is the fine tuned one on bios.
I went AIO and I will only go back to an air cooler if something goes wrong down the line. I only went this route since I overclocked my 8700k and it sits at 68 C at 5ghz all core 1.28v, I have now settled with 4.7 ghz all core at 1.19v (28 C idle, 52 C load) since I hardly had any performance differences. At 5ghz I was over 400w and at 4.7ghz its around 280-310wGood info on this thread.
Had an illusion that water coolers were heaven but this opened my eyes.
aio is just as simple too, it could be worse we could still being using a screwdriver to put tension on it to put it on the hooks around the socket and then accidently hitting the mobo with the screwdriver ruining itPersonally i like the simplicity of air, and noctua has and nice fastening system, i will probably stick with the till the end of life.
Did you by chance screw each all the way in the first go? oO Your suppose to just lock each screw in place at first and only after all screws have been loosely attached you proceed to tighten them , I go one step beyond since now I'm used from work to take several turns between them till I finally tighten the hold, since at work fixing in place my tools on the machine if the screws are off balance it can affect a bit the angle of the tool. It basically helps with balance.They are beautiful monstrosities. My NH-D14 is still working beautifully to this day.
I absolutely hate their bracket system, study as can be, but the last one I couldn't screw down without some pretty hefty force getting it to bite. Felt a bit worried I'd blow something apart. Still, the performance is godly even with that laughable color scheme their fans have, which is why I want to go with the silent wings with the be quiet! coolers.
I'd be a lot more appreciative of the Asetek coolers if they came with a metal back plate, the plastic ones that came with my corsair are immensely garbage.
I'm somewhat sure it was fairly loose, but you might be right haha.Did you by chance screw each all the way in the first go? oO Your suppose to just lock each screw in place at first and only after all screws have been loosely attached you proceed to tighten them . It helps with balance.
