1) Wipe a very hazy coat over the bottom of your Zalman just enough to barely dim the shine.
2) Put a 1/4 BB size to 1/2 BB size drop dead center on your CPU
3) Alternate screwing the left and then right until you have a very tight attachment.
4) Let it cure for 72hours of straight running.

Following these steps seem to produce the best results for me when I use air.
Probably not. I'm a noob so I just spread a thin layer of AS5 on the CPU. I guess I'll reapply it with your instructions Hopefully it'll lower the temps. Thanks again.

You can try 4/4/4/12 and you should be fine but you might need to bump your vdimm (ram voltage up a few clicks to stabilize it). Ram timings are one of the most easilly confused portion of overclocking. I can answer specific questions if you have some but I would suggest you read this first:
