I try and keep mine below 50c.

Back in the day 75c would be call the fire department your cpu melted.

You can run Intel cpus hotter than you can get away with AMD cpus from what I've heard. I don't know if its that the sensors just report things differently or what. For the most part I've been running my Intel cpus at around 70c or so for years, under prime load.

Delid that bitch and shot for more. :bleh:

70's are way too hot for my liking. Ideally I try to idle in the low 30's, peak load in the low 60's. Granted I'm limiting myself in ever achieving the epic OC some of ya'll are running, but such is life. *shrugs shoulders*

BababooeyHTJ Sep 3, 2013 09:02 PM

Why? If you're running 75c in prime95 you won't ever hit anywhere near that even in summer for normal usage. I've honestly never heard of a chip being damaged from at those sort of temps.

Personal preference and I'm admittedly old school. My last days of heavy OC'ing was back in the s939 days with my Opty185 and FX-60. :lol:

90C is when most CPUs start to burn like crazy and at 100C I believe, the system auto shuts down in the new Intel Processors.

I don't know how you could possibly botch a CPU because these days there are enough safeguards.

Good tempratures on Sandy are around 70 C tops but even at 85 C, the CPU runs fine (may degrade faster but honestly never seen any statistics on those). With the Haswell the tolerance is slightly lower I believe (will have to read the Intel spec sheet or something).

Either way botching a CPU due to overclock is not possible unless you pumping mega volts into it in which case tempratures will indicate much later if the CPU is botched because the overvolting might have already damaged the chip somehow.

I agree with you KAC. I would be more concerned with voltages than temperature.

yeah I get 75C in prime95. I've never seen above 55C in normal usage though. Also Inel spec says the max temp on Ivybridge is like 105C. I'd never go above 90C though

BababooeyHTJ Sep 4, 2013 05:47 PM

Yeah, I'm kind of in the same boat. I never let my chips go much over 80c during stress testing.

We both know that you're going to delid that chip sooner or later, Dave. :p


I am debating pushing my cpu a little harder. Skyrim could use it or a GTX780 I'm not sure.

too much talking here, not enough shots of their unused systems just cleaned rigs and desks prior to shot and then act like its always like that pictures.

Media Server/3rd PC is almost done. Made some last minute decisions when I went to pick it up the parts tonight.

Went with BitFenix Prodigy instead of using my Corsair 800D
Went with ITX build instead of ATX for fun

AMD 6800K
MSI FM2-A75IA-E53 ITX Board
8GB Corsair Dominator GT 2000Mhz (limited to 1866 due to board)
Corsair H80
OCZ ModXstream 500watt
Seagate 1TB (until I decide what biggers I want to go with)
Some LG DVD/CD drive
Have a 7750 on order from 'egg to crossfire with the iGPU (Powercolor 7750 1GB GDDR5)



CurrentlyPissed Sep 19, 2013 09:20 AM

Scratch the limited by motherboard. Even though the manual says it only supports up to 1866. When I turned on the BIOS options from 1866, to 2133, to 2400 were in there. So I guess this was a model originally designed for the 5800k series. So the memory is running like a champ at 2133.

AdamK47 Sep 19, 2013 10:43 AM

A couple upgrades. Relaced the 3960X with a 4960X. Replaced the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme with a Corsair H110.

Far out m8, that's a beast. What clocks do you get out of the 4930k and GPU's?

How are GPU temps? I'm thinking of going to a 4930k and 3rd GPU myself.

Hehe, he said 4960X. :eek: :hmm:

CurrentlyPissed Sep 19, 2013 11:49 AM

Woot 7750 will arrive tomorrow. Really curious to see how this little thing runs in crossfire with the iGpu. Was exicted to build the little box. I kinda want to put my titan in it :lol:

Ah so he did. Practically the same so the questions still stand. I can see he has 4960x and 3-way Titans, which is very nice, but I think I could get the same results out of 4930k and 3-way 780's.

And save a truckload of cash in the process.

When you try that, install the card and go into the BIOS and set the primary GPU to be the dGPU (7750) save and exit and then power off and move the display connector to the dGPU. Then boot into windows and install drivers, then try enabling CrossfireX. That way you use the dGPU and augment it with the APU graphics for the best results.

I'd love to see that. You should try it out one quiet weekend :D

Awesome thanks for the walk through, I kinda "jumped ship" on some few reads about the 7750 working. But it's unofficial. And no one has provided a walk through so was nervous about how I go about getting it to work.

I almost bought the FX 8350 instead, but there were no ITX boards at MC for them. So I didn't. Oh well, this build has already exceeded budget for what it was intended for. Should be a nice little PC for media server/back seat gaming.

One question, on your walkthrough, will I have to downclock the 7750 to match the iGPU or will it do it manually?

caveman-jim Sep 19, 2013 02:52 PM

It won't downclock at all, AMD multi-GPU tech has allowed mixed configs for a long time now. And you're right, it's unofficial, but if you configure it the way I suggested you'll be very pleased with it I think. Using the dGPU as primary gives the CPU cores more thermal budget so they'll stay in turbo longer, and the APU graphics will still be useful for increasing frame rates - and you get the benefit of GCN optimizations from the dGPU, no matter what.

CurrentlyPissed Sep 19, 2013 03:11 PM

Beautifull, thanks.

I am correct to understand though that the 7750 is the highest known card to work with the 6800k, correct?

4960X is at 4.5GHz stable.

The GPUs aren't clocked very high. Default voltage and +70 core / +100 memory for all three. The temps of the GPUs climb to the upper 80s when looping Unigine demos. Usually they are much lower than that when gaming. The system doubles as a space heater for the Winter. Just need to fire up Prime95 and loop Unigine Heaven.
