Pump Noise Testing Round 1 Updated

Posted: March 17, 2011 in News

I’ve been busy building and overclocking my new i7-2600K build, so excuse my lack of updates.  I did however add in the DDC 3.2 pump plus Koolance top test in with the previous results tested.  Oh and I made it to 4.9Ghz on Sandy Bridge, not bad for a once every few years overclocker like myself.  I tend to only do this when I upgrade hardware, and it’s been a few years since the last upgrade.

Here is a link to the updated Pump Round 1 noise testing batch

And some early screens of my new build clock..:)


Prime 95 Small FTT Load

I haven’t adjusted memory speeds/timings yet, but the chip was really easy to overclock.  I really didn’t run into any additional voltage needs until about 4.7 Ghz, and heat is not bad for an old worn out block that is oriented incorrectly.

      Yeah, new block is in order, this old supreme has seen better days. I actually had it on the stock intel cooler for a little while, but it was so poor, I had to do something to hold me over. Stock sink was hitting 80C on only 3.4 in just a short run…didn’t like that at all.
