be quiet! ShadowRock Topflow review

March 27, 2013 in Cooling, CPU, Intel, Overclocking, PC, Review

When one hears “be quiet!”; one thinks of an imperative – absolutely necessary or required; unavoidable: It is imperative that we keep the noise down. When considering the German vernacular; there is no real work around to this, it will be quiet. It is akin to yelling at a noisy case fan to cease and desist all annoying and unnecessary audible emissions! It is not a matter of becoming silent it is a matter of toning it down, at all costs, and keeping it quiet (Making little or no noise).

Changed HSF orientation and switched to diamond 24 (WOW Temp Drop)

I wanted to see if the heat pipe orientation (direct touch) and HSF direction make a noticeable difference in CPU temps.

Above is where I see the issue. I know the core is rectangular but I do not know the orientation. If I am correct this will make things hotter or quite a bit cooler.

The solution?

Getting the most out of IVY

May 29, 2012 in CPU, Intel, Overclocking, PC

Getting the most out of IVY

Getting hot is a big issue for the Ivy Bridge CPU and just changing multipliers and setting voltages may not get you the best possible results. Using the tools Intel gives you along with advanced Bios settings may yield better results than pretending this is just a hot Sandy Bridge CPU. Using Dynamic vcore, maximizing your Turbo Core usage, making some other fine adjustments and enabling power saving through BIOS you may be able to squeak a few hundred extra MHz out of your CPU and stay cooler at the same time.

A small disclaimer: Some motherboards show a small to significant loss in SSD performance with power saving options enabled.
