Max safe voltage for opty 148 and AS5 performance


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, what do you think is the max safe voltage for an opty 148 with cheap aircooling and as5?


Also, I had Arctic alumina on for a while, cleaned the processor/heatsink with 92% rubbing alcohol and applied as5. Temps seem to have gone up from 54C to 55-56C under prime load at 1.55v and 3005MHz under prime95 small fft. I have heard as5 needs to be broken in under load and at room temperatures I am hoping this is the reason. I had applied the alumina in an even, thin sheet covering the entire IHS, while with the AS5 I applied the 3/4 size BB pellet and then rotated the heatsink slightly as instructed by Arctic. What do you guys think?
