Just wondering if i should expect a coldbug on my proc...
stepping is LCBQE 0722XPMW... i got it to 3.2 but it's too hot so i wanna buy a tec :twisted:

low on cash$$ so i dont want to end up with wasted money.

setup is currently mcw5002-64t, dual 120mm radiators, reservoir, and pump. i disassembled the block and removed the cold plate (it was originally for s462 so it doesn't fit 100% yet..) and the tec was burnt out from the last user


anywhere i can get conformal coating for cheaper btw..? what about molten wax coating the back of my mobo instead ..? :P

thanks :D

If you are short on cash, buying a tec is the last thing your should be doing. Besides, I doubt that 3800+ has much up side left. 3.2 GHz on a X2 is quiet good.

Wax on a mobo just doesn't sound like a good idea . . .

;D yeah but i might try it on a s370 old intel board... i just read about this spray on stuff for battery terminals that protects from moisture...


i got to 3.4 but it wasnt bootable but was superpi-able i think (headache/etc right now cant think)

a guy with same steppings got 3.55ghz.
mine are LCBQE 0722XPMW and his LCBQE 0722RPAW.. i know if i can get this colder it could do 3.4g++

3.2g @ 1.4v is good scaling?

could i substituteconformal coatings with more dielectric grease?

the grease is far cheaper and servers as insulation so i dont see why not..?

I'd pass on that idea. The grease could move over time and could expose things to moisture that you don't want exposed. The conformal coating won't move and will keep your parts sealed.

You can get conformal coating really cheap at crafts stores (like those that deal in ceramics) as they use acrylic spray as a coating - the very same spray that is used on TEC setups at 1/3 price. Just make certain it is ACRYLIC SPRAY that you get.

It's what I use for conformal coating since it is the very same thing.

good: proc core temp was down ~-10*C and 2*c.... bad: load temps were ~38...

installed the pelt. good temps on idle. load is bad

like -10C core temp, then 38 load core temp.

makes it cold until it does something. maybe i didnt do something right?

What are you running for rads? It sounds like you need more cooling capacity in the water system. A temp delta of 48C between idle and load just seems mighty wide.

i had two swiftech 120's. now using 1; with two fans 1 push 1 pull.

i reinstalled the swiftech mcw5002-64 and used the cold plate even though it was socket-a size. some little work later and voila: -8*c/-1*c idle

27/21 load.

condensation bled through the grease, no suprise there. will have to get some coating, neoprene soon if i want to use the pelt again.

got it 3.2ghz looked stable with orthos but after a few minutes and that load temp, it just turns off no errors no nothing. doubt it was condensation because it happened twice in a row :twisted: .

so i took the pelt off again, gonna get the nub removed from this coldplate so its smooth and overlaps 100% instead of missing 1/4" of the ihs :P



good fun for getting 2x120mm rads, 2 old 5.25" bay reservoirs, and this peltier waterblock. all i had to do was order cnverter and blam!
