Never comes close to overheating; always runs within spec. Ignore the GTX 295, the photo is rather old.

Basically, it is a huge Thermalright heatsink with copper block and multiple heat pipes. With two fans attached, it's nearly as good as a water cooler for mid-high end overclocks.


What temps do you get under load and at idle?

post #1742 of 2086

At idle my temps are usually around 35-40c, which is around 60c away from the TJ Max.

 

After running IntelBurn with all threads at maximum stress for about two minutes, the hottest core topped out at around 79c.

 

In normal use situations, it never even comes close to going that high. Even after looping the physics test in 3D Mark 11 about ten times, I had barely topped 60c, and the cool-down upon closing the program was immediate.

It is average or slightly below average for a normal 990X.

post #1745 of 2086

Out of curiosity ran IntelBurn at max for 10 iterations my stock i7 3770. The max temp was 64C, back to idle around 30c was immediate. Didn't notice any increase in fan noise, it remained quite quiet.

That's what I was thinking. My overclock is nothing special, really.

Well a month ago I posted my "next computer build" specs based on a z77 platform. My how that has changed...

A week ago I bought:

Asus Rampage iv Extreme

2x EVGA GTX 670 reference cards(love the way water blocks look on the shorty boards) to SLI(and WC soon)

i7 3820

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 850w PSU

XSPC Raystorm RS240 kit.

Waiting to arrive:

16gb Viper 1600

Corsair C70(in white)

4x Asus 21.5 IPS LED monitors

Everything else I have... SSD, HDD, keyboard, mouse etc.............

Future upgrades include another radiator and water blocks for the VGAs (maybe a new pump).

I used to water cool in the late 90s early 2000s when you had to fab your own gear so it's been a few years...

This will be the 1st time I have used multiple monitors. Gunna be fun...............

Ok, but how does the resolution scale in this case?

To be honest I don't know. I haven't recieved the monitors yet so I haven't had a chance to play around with them and am just going by what you can do with gtx 670 according to Nvidia, but I imagine the 3 will run at 5760x1080 with the 4th monitor running independently at 1920x1080....

Ok...I tried to run a dual monitor setup (eyefinity mode), and it seems it combines two displays. I guess you can do the same..best of luck!

Well the icing on the cake is I passed up on the 21.5s. I found the Asus VS238H-P(23") on sale yesterday $10.00 cheaper and a $20.00 rebate on top of that..... So I picked up 4 of those instead.

FSX is going to look awesome!!! :)
