MaximumRico Posted December 23, 2013 Share Posted December 23, 2013 6I bought a new rig for the most part, the H60 "High performance" was on sale so I bought it on Amazon, the motherboard I purchased has what is called TPU, a switch that according to the manual - TPU TPU (Turbo Processing Unit), offers precise voltage control and advanced monitoring mechanisms through the Auto Tuning and TurboV functions in your Asus AI Suite 3 Utility. Link if you want the mobo specs. http://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/Z87PLUS/#support So, I enabled this, blah blah installed everything, long story short initially I was running at idle doing what I'm doing now web browsing, maybe listening to music, nothing intensive at all at around 40C, and I want to make it clear that it has been enabled since Day 1 of installation, no issues. No crashes, no BSODs, etc. so I'm glad it works great but to my point. Right now I'm running at 50-55C with a couple Chrome windows and Spotify (well, CPU-Z, AI Suite 3, and HW Monitor to confirm the temps from different sources) which seems like a bit much since my processor isn't doing a whole lot, but I haven't overclocked much in the past. So the first few days it was down around 40, I was installing other things, didn't game for a bit then installed Battlefield 4, which I can run on ultra and I notice I get up to 90-95C while running this, which seems pretty warm to me. First question is:, will the H60 be enough if I'm going to stay overclocked? Second question is: would buying a better fan for better airflow to replace (if possible) the Corsair fan on the radiator work or be beneficial? I have a gaming case so I do have ventilation in the top, and I have a front fan. I have it setup so it is pulling in air from the back, while the front fan is blowing it out. I might replace the front fan since the case is fairly old and only seems to do about 1000~ RPM, regardless of me telling it to do more, so I'm not sure if that is normal or not as well. I have until Jan. 31st to return it since it's the Christmas season and whatnot. I have reseated and made sure thermal paste is applied to the processor after I noticed the spike in temp but no change. I have not yet tried the stock fan that came with it to compare temperatures. I will turn off the OC switch and check temperatures, and possibly try the stock fan to compare as well but I'm looking for answers to the main two questions above. Thanks in advance.
