I set everything to stock and push with Prime95 for 1 hour to see the maximum voltage for stock clock. It's around 1.244-1250V. Then I manually set the CPU voltage to this value and increases the BCLK by 10 once the previous 10 increased stable for 1 hour with Prime test. So far I could reach 3.64GHz HT ON with the same voltage. Average temp is 70C.

At campus now, will continue further once back home next time.

Regarding the thermal paste, will re-apply it during semester or mid semester break.

I know the ambient helped some but that should have been offset by having HT enabled.

Did you look up your batch number? It could be that it's not a good 'clocker. Also, I'm not real familiar with MX-2, is it supposed to be spread like that? Is it real thick and viscous? If not, the rice-grain method mentioned earlier, or a pea-sized blob works really well. And make sure that the block is tightened down properly. From what I can gather, the tighter that you screw the block down, the better it works. Of course there's a caveat.......don't tighten it TOO much that you strip a screw, break a screw, or worse snap something off!

One more thing, is all the air purged out of your loop? Someone asked for pics of your case/rig. Can you take some for us to study? That would help plus we could see how good everything looks!
The batch number is 3945A818. As far I know MX-4 is one of the best thermal paste in market. I just applied a thin layer of it. The CPU block fitted perfect.

No air inside the loop. Will get some picture and upload it later.

This right here. Apply a small bit of thermal grease onto the cpu itself--about the size of a grain of rice, or a small pea, right in the center. When you put the block on and tighten it down, it will spread the grease and fill any imperfections.

And when re-applying thermal grease be sure and clean the block and cpu very well to remove any old TIM.

I usually use Arctic Thermal Remover and Purifier.

Maybe you should try Shin Etsu X23-7783D Thermal paste

And to remove the old thermal paste MY best way is to use High voltage electrical cleaning clothes

Or

Isotropic alcohol with a lint-free towel

Thank you for your suggestion. Will give it a try when next time opening up the components.

I able to go until 3.8GHz with HT ON with 1.24375 Vcore, 12 Hours Prime test. I tried the same voltage for 4.0GHz but then blue screen appeared. Then I increases the Vcore a notch-by-notch until 1.3 but still getting blue screen. For each Vcore the time interval after I run Prime95 and the blue screen is different, the time is greater as Vcore increases.

So, I need some advice to reach 4.2GHz.
