I need updates on this mod!


In Topic: Refining my overclocked i5-2500k

I just want to say that your 212 Evo should be able to cool better than that.  I'm kind of leaning towards bad airflow or needing to re-apply thermal paste being your biggest issue.  90c after only -7- minutes on Prime95 means you were going to get even hotter than that.  80c while gaming is extremely high for a normal 4.4-4.5ghz overclock on a 2500k.  If I remember correctly these chips still had soldered heatspreaders so they should run even cooler than an IvyBridge.

 

How much vcore actually gets applied while you're monitoring in Windows with your current offsets?  Something is off, or your ambient is like 35c.

Why on earth would you be turning off your monitor or changing any video inputs that are plugged into your GPU if it is doing a stress test or even playing a game?  You really need to stop using computers or just buy a MAC if you're going to intentionally look for problems instead of just using it like a normal person.


In Topic: 8700K Overclocking and Water AIO Help Needed.

My NH-U14S keeps my 6800k OC'd to 4.1ghz 1.25v with 3000mhz memory and 3.4ghz cache under 70c during stress testing.  Although I think these chips are soldered and the 8700k is not... Still, the X99's have a higher TDP at stock so my overclock should still give you some confidence in that air cooler - Especially at $15!  What a steal.


In Topic: Got a new monitor, confused about stuff...

I have 3 of these monitors.  All I did was set the brightness on the monitor around 35-40%, Contrast at 75%, Make sure deep sleep mode is disabled, that might be what you were experiencing before, Normal Mode (3ms) vs. Fast Mode (1ms) is that you will get ghosting (that white trail you mentioned) unless you're using Normal mode.  It's a trade-off for the price of the monitor imo.

 

If you have an Nvidia graphics card make sure GSync is enabled, If your game falls between ~30fps and 144fps then GSync will be in effect, it does what VSync was meant to do without adding any additional input lag (changes monitor refresh rate to stay in sync with FPS so you don't see any screen tearing).  I set a max fps in games that support commands like that (142fps is what I use to make sure it never gets to 144fps, at that point vsync can get enabled if you don't have it explicitly disabled) to make sure GSync is always enabled.

 

Also in Nvidia color options;

 

Gamma: ~.65

Digital Vibrance: ~70%

 

With these settings the washed out effect is basically gone and any 'banding' issues will be minimized (usually effected most by higher brightness settings).
