WELL! I have dropped 30C in my temperatures. Which means that my ceiling for OC'ng is actually higher. Cost... I don't know. As it is it would probably be $30-$40 for shipping, plus I'd have to test the chip prior to delidding it... make sure it works... delid it... then make sure it still works... not a lot of work... but there's a good amount of time and effort that has to be put into it.

I guess I'd buy you a new one if I kill it. Obviously I'd be held responsible right?

Edit: Quick question... I am getting an 0x50 and it says in the guide to lower the ... "uncore"... what is that?

I am interested, so post a final price and I will get a new Ivy chip asap. Thanks to Kenny I am at 4.5 with Sandy, but would like 3.0 pcie performance from my board and get 5+Ghz to start setting up a 3 monitor gaming rig by Xmas.

Hey guys! Here's an update on my Pro4. As I said earlier the Pro4 was refusing to overclock my 3570K, it wouldn't go past the 38 multiplier no matter what. I think the problem is that I upgraded the BIOS to 1.7 (newest). I'm pretty sure it's what screwed up the multiplier settings and actually REMOVED features in the BIOS (the "Additional Turbo Boost" completely missing). SO I bought a new board which was set at bios 1.4. Only upgraded to v1.5 so my 7950 would work, and all the CPU overclocking functions still work (praise the Jeebus). Should I just leave the BIOS at v1.5 for the rest of this MB's life? Everything seems to work, and I'm afraid to upgrade it to the 1.6 and 1.7 BIOS. It's especially suspicious that the 1.6 BIOS says it "Upgrades CPU code." Seems like the type of thing that would screw up the overclock settings to me.

What do you guys think?

Generally speaking...if it aint broke, don't fix it. Glad you got it sorted out.

I'm also thinking of clearing out the old thermal paste on the 3570K since all you guys are talking about it. Is it OK to use Artic Silver 5 on the CPU die?

I would abandon that old stuff as it conducts with metal.

Pick up some Arctic MX-4 for $10 on newegg.

Deliding is something you don't want to be doing very often. Once preferably, so get it right the first time.

Don't even bother deliding with as5.... I did that and it dropped 3-5 degrees tops


Took JP advice got coolaboratory pro and it dropped close to 30 degrees


Edit to say don't use coolaboratory on the heat sink/lid cause I believe it conducts electricity.... Once again Jedi master JP told me to get Pk1 as thermal paste for the heatsink and boom! Never looked back... No cure time

Using liquid metal TIM between the IHS and heatsink is perfectly safe and will give the best temps

You shouldn't make a blanket statement. Using it with an aluminum heat sink isn't safe. Besides people have different ideas of what safe is. The some the fact the CLP/CLU leaves a nasty stain may make it unsafe
post #5740 of 9531
Just because it stains doesn't mean it's not safe. He was saying don't use it on the IHS because it conducts electricity and I was replying to that.
