Re: XPS 730x General Hardware Discussion thread

Any ideas?

 

Hello, Kaidiir.  The best think you can do is to elevate your PC as high off the floor as possible.  I have mine sitting on my desktop which is nearly 4 feet off the floor.  By doing this, my PC catches very little dust.

 

Hope this helps.

This is a great idea, I'll give it a go. Anything to at least reduce the amount of dust that builds up. Thanks!

Someone needs to make a direct link to page 53 or 54......  It is ridiculous to press next at least 25 times to get this far.  Btw,

Or you could just type the page number in address bar at the top of browser.

Change the 2 to 53 or 54 or 55 or whatever your heart desires

 

I recently recieved a 730x HC2 and I to have a problem with sleep mode. Once  I wake my computer back up it BSOD every time within 10-15 minutes of waking. In or out of games then reboots. Running Bios 1.0.3, very annoying and makes sleep mode useless. If i dont want to crash I have reboot after I wake it up and sit there for 1 minute waiting for it slow reboot process.

Thanks for letting me know.  I didnt know how to do that.  

 

I figured the problem out regarding the cosmetic damage done on the face plates.  Isopropyl Alcohol was expired on 12/2008.  That definitely affected its drying capabilities.  Thanks for the help once again.

Re: XPS 730x General Hardware Discussion thread

I have a 965 H2C system and notice temps that idle between 38c-42c  Playing Crysis on High settings pushes the CPU temps (per Core-Temp) to between 58c and 63C.  Is that normal?  Do you think I may need to tighten my block to the CPU?  If so how much?  I don't want to wreck anything.  I thought I would get some cooler temps with the H2C but maybe my concept of what they should be is off.  Any advice would be helpful.

Been reading your post on similar issue and later some comments/ suggestion posted by others.

I have 920 with H2C. The core temp is at 47degC on IDLE, ambient temp at 29degC (85degF). DELL service tech come over today to replace the m/b & CPU. Doesn't seems to fix the problem. I intent to OC my PC. How do you resolve yours?

How do you resolve yours?

 

The temp of your CPU will depend somewhat on the temperature of the room your PC is in.  I keep my room temp around 70F.

 I, too, have the 920 H2C and I was hoping the H2C would keep my temp around 30c but the lowest I've seen it was 38c.  Right now, I have my CPU overclocked to 3.2ghz and my idle temp is 38-41c with the load temps up to around 48c.  I've had my CPU up to 3.8ghz with idle temps being 43c and load being 55c.  I ran Prime95 and at 100% load, my temps were 68-72c which is still under the 100c threshold.

If you would like to check, remove your H2C unit and clean the thermal paste from the CPU and the water block and then apply a thin layer of Arctic Silver 5 to the CPU.  Best of luck and let me know how it goes for you.

Re: XPS 730x General Hardware Discussion thread

Hi,

I was wondering if Bios 1.0.3 fixed more then Dell is admitting.  I have been running (i7 965) OC with C-State Tech enabled for several days. (Knock on Wood)  Before, the computer would reboot after several hours. The Idle temp runs about 4 deg C cooler. (38deg C)

What do you have your CPU overlocked to?  I just updated to the 1.0.3 BIOS and I can't really tell that it's made any difference.

Re: XPS 730x General Hardware Discussion thread

Hi,

OC to factory 3.74.  I ran several days at 3.2 with out any reboots. So, i tried the OC setting. It has been 47 hours (again, knock on wood) OC without a reboot.  I am not saying it is fixed, but it has lasted 10X longer then before and the idle temp is defintly cooler. (c-state tech enabled). Running real temp's sensor's test the CPU's reaches 72C. (100% load with prime 95). I live in Round Rock and the ambient temp in the room has been 80F
