i5 6600k and Dark Rock 3 OC

Recommended Posts

Hi there!!

 

So have this configuration:

 

i5 6600K on Z170 motherboard

GTX 1060 6gb

SSD M2 250gb

Dark Rock 3 cooler

 

So want to OC i5 on 4.8 and just want to know if I get high temperature will it help to mount another fan on Dark Rock 3. I have one 135mm on one side.. Idea is to put 120mm on other side so there would be push-pull. Will I get better cooling?

 

Thanks!!

Welcome to OCC Sgt.

 

That's a great single fan cooler,.. and adding push-pull with 120mm fan would lower your temps. BQ sends extra fan clips with dark rock 3 cooler for adding 120mm fan,.. you can buy Silent Wings 3 120mm PWM fan, Y-cable, and fan clips if you need them from PPCS.  http://www.performance-pcs.com/be-quiet-silent-wings-3-120mm-pwm-high-speed.html

So basic.. my i5 6600k is OC on 4.5 and tower is ok, have two 140mm fans in front and one on back. And soon there will be two on top (120mm)

 

On aida stress test I have top 70

4.5GHz and 70c under load is vary nice OC with single fan air-cooler.   :cheers:

 

Skylake chips tend to get a little hot at 1.4V,.. and most need that or more to run 4.8GHz stable.
