Has anyone tried overclocking a Skylake i7 6700K (or something quite similar) using the stock case fans of your case for internal

cooling and also a Corsair H80i GT CPU cooler radiator with just one of its stock fans instead of the usual two fans ?

 

Just trying to get a rough idea of what the temp's would be about for a half decent overclock like maybe 4.6 or more, I guess we could

also base it on using two fans with the H80i GT and then knock off maybe a few degrees but I am not sure just how much difference

one or two fans would make compared

 

Maybe some people out there have already tried and done something like this ?, please let me and all of us know, thank you.

lol sorry, this site isnt much of a overclocking style site, im not much of an overclocker myself (though I do dabble and know the basics).

 

I havent messed with liquid cooling, and ideally you want to use both fans if that was what it was designed for,  but I imagine depending on the room temp etc.  its probably going to be something your going to have to try and find out. A lot probably depends on how much airflow is getting to the radiator and the room temp, if it were me I would try it, but spend some time and try slowly overclocking it, I would say up it 50 ghz at a time, and run some intensive CPU tests while monitoring the temps while doing so. If they start spiking, then back it off. If you do it slowly, while testing like this, if it does start to get to hot, you should be able to back everything off without doing any damage to the PC.
