You probably shoulda got a 2x8 kit if you're looking to Overlook and be stable. So if you don't yet have that kit,I would return them and pick one up instead. 2 lanes are stable and 4 is not. Especially with that 955 BE. thinking.gif

Picked up a formula from another forum along w/ a quad and some ram. NB and sb were at 50 and 40 respectively. I removed the crusty yellow cake on the heatsinks but I couldn't remove it from the chips as its was too hard. I tired some cleaner and alcohol with no luck. Left it as is and added new pads for both chips and the vrm. Temps dropped a good 10c on the chips thumbsupsmiley.png.

That stuff was solid on my BNIB board. I carved arond the chip and peeled it off so I could use the rest of that TIM as a form on the Heatsink.



Sorry bout the Potato pic but it's all I have of the Heatsink that is being shipped out soon.

It's a fairly straight forward job however. I think their TIM pads were some kind of wax tbh. thinking.gif

But I had applied a small dot of G751 to both heatsinks and remounted them to the board. And mine dropped same but better on NB due to the standoff modification I did for the NB standoffs thumb.gif

Okay, just to get you sorted out... I don't recommend going off another person's clocks. You're more likely to fail than succeed.

But fear not, there are ways to get around that.

One thing about these boards is you have the OC button feature. What I suggest doing to start with is going into your BIOS and familiarizing yourself with the settings. Make sure to record it all on paper, so you can refer to the difference when you use the onboard OC feature. This way you can visually see the difference of Base to mild OC. The changes are what you're wanting to note in particular.

Also keep in mind when you're ready to fiddle with your settings that your RAM speed will increase by default(manual settings) so you will have to record that in order to roll it back to stock speed. The only way you wouldn't have to is if you were to run RAM that is above 1600 series or you would have to dial it back mildly to keep your clock stable. It's been awhile since I posted my results here so it'll take some time to find the OC, I put on my 955 BE C2 but it's in this thread. Also posted it to the 4.0 club but that too is a pretty deep thread. tongue.gif
