You might have better luck using a fine to very fine grinding stone for knives.... they're good because you generally just use water and not soap or oil.
Hmm.. Interesting.

I never thought of that. But wouldn't that a pretty long time, as small as dremel tips are?

It's not just for the mirror finish. that is a nice advantage and a nice way to tell if it doesn't have huge imperfections, but the idea here is to get it FLAT not shiny. and i would take flat with a few molecular imperfections over wavy and shiny any day. the idea is to get as much contact with the IHS as possible, the flatter the two surfaces the better the contact will be... perfectly flat and they will even begin molecular bonding (neat phenomenon). Good luck getting it flat with a power tool.
Brrrrrrrr...

This needs to be done by hand, not by a tool to get it perfectly flat.

I have been playing around, trying to get the best overclock with the lowest voltage. So far I am 4 hours prime stable at 385FSB (3.08ghz) with 1.37V core. There is still room to go without raising Vcore too, I suspect maybe 3.2 with no more additional Vcore.

If the temps could stay lower, this would be one of the baddest chips I've ever seen, I mean 3.5ghz on 1.4V is insane, and now I am at 3.1 with very little addition in Vcore, in fact, I could lower the Vcore right now.

Well it's official, the TTBT sucks. Stock voltage is 1.325 and I am running 1.33V right now, almost stock, and I'm loading at 48C. I reset it again, that is not the problem. Air flow is great, wire management is not a problem.

I think I may set up a watercooling setup if I can't get these temps under control. I could make a completely contained system (which I want) utilizing the 80mm blowhole at the top, and the 80mm fan at the rear. If I was just cooling my CPU, 2 80mm Rads would be more than enough to cool a 65nm CPU.

Suggestions? Trying to keep this as cheap as possible.

what about using a zalman cnps9500 with it turned so the fan blows the hot air straight at the rear 80mm or 120mm fan, not sure which it is and then that would blow it straight out the back. sounds like it could be better at getting the hot air from the cpu out of case faster then the TTBT since the BT blows the air into the cpu, and its probably not blowing enough air because its so close to the side panel.

jus my 2 cents

edit: will the zalman work with the DS3, its not listed in the motherboard compatibility list on the zalman site.

I am pretty thorough when it comes to watercooling, so under $100 is not likely unless I get an Augagate Mini, which would probably be better than what I have now.

I was thining of a custom kit that went: pump > filiport > rad 1 > rad 2 > cpu block > pump.

Does anyone think 1 80mm rad would be enough? I sort of doubt it, but if I lap the waterblock, and maybe even my CPU block, I might be able to achieve good temps. Most likely 2 80mm will be needed however.

Ideas?

*EDIT*
On a better note, I seem to be stable at 3.2 with 1.3375V, this chip is a GEM!

nice, ok the board can go up to 480 FSB. So if you have x8 that means 480 FSB x 8 = 3840
