This machine was built using all used parts and was really just for fun. It plays Skyrim on 4k with Ultra settings @ 60+ FPS. However the game does lag when I save and the gpu's tend to idle at 70 Degrees Celsius. My cpu is oc'd to 5 GHz with my vcore @ 1.536v. With good fan placement and my radiator set as intake my temps have not reached 65 Degrees Celsius under load and idle around 20c.
The amount of abuse this little chip can take is amazing. I have clocked it all the way up to 5.2 GHz with no problems and little heat issues.
This little beauty cools my cpu better than the h100i v2 I now have on my amd fx-9590.
Even with my XMP profile enabled my ddr3 2133 MHz ram will not clock to its stock speeds.
I bought these on ebay for 25$ and am thoroughly happy with their performance.
It may not be the best on the market but for the price it was a worthy investment. (it was 42$ at walmart a year ago)
Running these in sli is unbelievable. If the game does not allow sli go to the nvidia control panel and make the second one do Antialasing.
I love them but they are loud when cranked up.
Crisp Clear and way to loud.
