or is auto good enough?

Using Auto is a good start. I think you will be happy with the temp under stock voltages. If not, just use that as a starting point to fine-tune the voltages.
And let me reiterate: having HyperThread off will drop temp by another 8-10C, say.

The point of having HT is: when you need it, you can turn it on. It simply means you have this option of turning it on/off available to you.
There are times that turning it off would bring a benefit.

well. honestly, i like having HT on just because i use it more than i don't.

and Auto settings have been sorta disastrous for me. 78C from GTA 4 is way too hot for my tastes. i will remount later tonight and hopefully that'll be a temporary solution.

1.45v is pretty high for that chip. That would most definitely be the problem.

1.45v for 4.1ghz? Yikes

My old 760 did more then that with 1.29v

Yes, enable HT as you need it.
(Sidenote: I think GTA4 does not use HT. So, just for the sake of testing, could you turn off HT and see what temp you get when playing GTA 4?)

What stock voltage you get when setting it to Auto? Should be around 1.24v.
With good case airflow and 212+, I expect the gaming load temp to be around mid (to high) 50's C.
So, getting 78C is still quite high for a stock clock i7 860. Unusual high ambient temp? Less than optimal case air flow? Hot air exhausted from your Twin Frozr II gets sucked through the 212+? Remounting and fresh application of thermal paste should help.

1.24 is way too low for 4Ghz. 1.3v should be adequate tho

Read post #9. We are talking no OC with everything stock.

i haven't remounted but it could be a possibility with the TFII hot air lifting to the heatsink.

i think i have adequate cooling, 2 120mm tricool intakes and 2 120mm tricool exhaust. but ya, i actually did bump the volts to 1.35v when i was told 1.45 was too much. GTA4 seem stable for that clock

and to everyone that's telling me to turn off HT. i actually use this rig for rendering so HT helps alot. so HT off is a no go.

later tonight, i will remount as well as turn off HT and run GTA4 (for testing) until then, any suggestions on a new heatsink?

i seriously want to buy a new one so i can beat my buddy's stock 2600k.

Need new cooler and lower that voltage!

Find an Antec 920 for cheap somewhere or pick up a Corsair H80. If it's really only a few degrees off a H100 then I think you will find it quite pleasing. I know I love my H100. Shaved 4-6c off my NH-D14.

Don't use a game for testing overclocks. Use Intel Burn Test. Much more stress on the CPU and RAM.

For example. My setup shows high temp of 71c in IBT on Max burn but in games shows only 55c. Now you said you saw 90c+ playing GTA4 so add at least 10c for the IBT runs.

Look into using IBT to test your overclock. You won't need to guess if it's stable anymore, it will just crash instead.
