i7 overclocking and temps X58-UD5
« on: November 18, 2010, 11:44:05 pm »
Been running stable overclock on my i7 920 3.36 for about a year and I wanna try pushing this board to its maximum. Thing is even with my dual fan T.R.U.E. black and antec 1200 (1200 stands for the number of fans it has)  I am hitting 67-68 degrees after about an hour of prime... Is that normal with an i7 920 and TRUE and do you think I can still push my oc? ( I set the cpu voltage manualy to 1.2 cause I know the UD5 overvolts it by default)
Also do ya think my psu is enough? It also has to drive 9x120mm and a 200mm fan pluz each one has a gazilion LED lights
