    Default Xigmatek LOKI CPU cooler awesome performance!

    Hi guys,
    Yesterday I got a Xigmatek LOKI CPU cooler for my phenom ii x6 1090t. And you won't believe what a awesome performance its giving.
    Here's some screenshot.
    I've decided to run some real time benchmark, as prime95 just knows how to burn you CPU and also I have no such application that can run like prime95.
    So, I have decided to run winrar benchmark which is a realtime application. Here's the temp with 8 winrar benchmarking.

    8 winrar benchmarking @ 3996MHz, 1728MHz 9-9-9-27-2T, Idle: 25, High Temp: 45C (note that I didn't keep my CPU @ idle, so this is not the idle temp.)

    My rig screenshot:


    So you can see there's still more headroom left for this cooler and I will be OCing more and post the screenshot later. I still have to OC my RAM and CPU-NB. I am thinking of getting 4.2GHz. Let's see if I can reach that really with this small cooler. Btw I can hardly hear the sound of this cooler @ 100% (3000rpm) and at less than 100%, their is no sound. I thinking of getting Xigmatek Aegir next time.

    I used the thermal paste that was provided with it. I think I could get more lower temp If I could use arctic thermal paste.

    --------------------------------------------------post added: 7-1-2012-------------------------------------------------------------------------

    prime95 @ stock setting, temp is idle: 27C, load: 47C (ambient temp: 23-26C); link:

    IBT @ stock settings (CnQ, C1E, Spread Spectrum disabled, Turbo core disabled):

    idle: 27C, load: 51C (ambient temp is between 23-26C)Please comment if this temp is ok or not. With stock cooler I could never use IBT

    92mm Hypro right? Damn heard its 30USD. Pretty good fan

    Now the question remains what about Intel's chips?

    Wow, didn't expect such a great result from this little performer. The temps increase when you start fiddling with the CPU-NB. You should hit 4GHz, & 2.8GHz+ on the CPU-NB just fine. But what I'm more worried about is your motherboard. At least have some fans blowing towards your MOSFETs, your X6 at 4GHz is already stressing the hell out of those VRMs, & that PSU doesn't seem very capable.

    Does it come with an EPS 8pin connector for the CPU ? I had the very same board, IIRC the MOSFETs are bare, so please be aware when you are overclocking.

    I dont have a high performance GPU. So no worries. I can get it @ 4GHz easily. Right now testing it at 4GHz. BC 286*14 @ 1.456v (in BIOS); 1.496v (in CPUz), CPU-NB: 2574MHz @ 1.25v. Is it correct settings? 6 winrar benchmark increases its temp to 54 (ambient temp is 23-25C guessing). So i am afraid of running prime95 now. My previous setting's prime95 temp was 54C and winrar 45C

    Any advice is welcomed.

    ---------- Post added at 13:10 ---------- Previous post was at 13:01 ----------

    The temp is 55C now. Lets run it for 45 mins more. Do you think CPU vcore1.456v for 4GHz is ok? or I can decrease it?

    Yup they are correct, but try not to touch the base clock. Overclock with the multiplier for now, until you reach a limit for 18.5. Then start tuning the base clock for 4GHz. While WinRAR benching is a good way to work out the CPU, I would still recommend Prime95, but it would be a real stress for those phases with Prime. If I am correct, 18.5 is the limit after which CnQ stops working.

    My guess is that you are overclocking with the base clock to match your RAMs at 1866 ? Don't bother, drop them down to 1600, & tighten the timings. AMD systems benefit from latency than RAM b/w, you are better of with tighter timings at lower frequencies. You might even have more headroom at 1600/1333, since 1800+ is the upper limit for the Thuban IMC (Integrated Memory Controller)

If I am correct, 18.5 is the limit after which CnQ stops working.

    My guess is that you are overclocking with the base clock to match your RAMs at 1866 ? Don't bother, drop them down to 1600, & tighten the timings. AMD systems benefit from latency than RAM b/w, you are better of with tighter timings at lower frequencies. You might even have more headroom at 1600/1333, since 1800+ is the upper limit for the Thuban IMC (Integrated Memory Controller)
    which one is mosfet? is it voltage regulator or CPU VDD? I have set my CPU VDD at auto (which is 1.275v).

    Still running, no error after running 40 mins.

    If I open the casing, the temp decreases to 53 from 56.5C

    Ok, completed running 8 winrar benchmark for 1h 7m. So far no error shown. let's tweak it differently.

    ---------- Post added at 14:17 ---------- Previous post was at 14:02 ----------

    After decreasing HT link to 2002Mhz from 2574Mhz, my CPU Vcore temp decreased from 58C (later increased to 58C from 56C) to 55C (after running for 10 mins) with 8 winrar bench! Wow what a improvement.

    P/S: there is no performance improvement by increase HT link FSB. So I lowered it.

    ---------- Post added at 14:38 ---------- Previous post was at 14:17 ----------

    @dipanzan I did exactly as you said. CPU: 4015MHz [NB: 2604MHz], Memory: DDR3-868 (1736)MHz, timing same as before(will mess with it later). What a improvement man.
    My MaxxMEM² score increased from 505 to 560! wow, thanks man.

    ---------- Post added at 15:09 ---------- Previous post was at 14:38 ----------

    I decrease the memory timing to 8-8-8-24-2T @ 1446MHz and it decreased the performance. MaxxMEM² score is 503 now. latency is same as before. ~57

    ---------- Post added at 15:17 ---------- Previous post was at 15:09 ----------

    OMG! read this,

    And before you email in to ask, among the one hundred and twenty-four sub-135mm tall Intel heatsinks Frostytech has tested, the Xigmatek SD963 Loki is third best after theNoctua NH-C14 and Scythe SCRT-1000 Rasetsu heatsinks.

    ---------- Post added at 15:53 ---------- Previous post was at 15:17 ----------

    Ok, after trying every possible method, i have decided to run Memory @ 1864 9-10-9-28-2T (factory settings) CPU: 233*17.5 = 4077MHz
    My MaxxMEM score is now 620! Now testing it for stability. Will post the result after completing testing.

    This is the closest I can find for the 890GXM G65, it seems I was wrong. The MOSFETs are in fact heatsink-ed, but to be on the safe side put a 80mm fan blowing towards it. The AMD stock cooler blows air around the CPU core, so the MOSFETs get some airflow too, but HDT Coolers don't work that way.

    Oh, keep the HT link speed at stock, which would be 2000MHz, there's no performance increase when going over 2000, & sometimes it can even take a hit if overclocked. You should be able hit 2.8GHz+ on the NB (since it's a Thuban), & 4GHz is fine for the CPU. Do a Prime overnight, if you are sure that your OC is stable. Good luck.

    @Wintereise and @EviL AnGeL
    I won't deny you guys. As I got one for my personal use, I thought of sharing it with BG. This way I can get help om OCing from pros and also whoever buys this product can get a idea about it.
    BTW, Xigmatek is not a bad brand. I myself was astonished after looking at its performance. I hope I am not doing anything wrong here.

    Nah, you aren't. Just that the practice doesn't look any different than self promotion

    If it's really as good as you say, all the more reason to promote it.

    Yeah, many of the people aren't familiar with Xigmatek CPU coolers, that's why I thought of giving it a try.
