I think it should work.

Due to technical issues, I had to RMA my board (failed BIOS flash...), and am currently on a P5B (vanilla.. ugh). My RAM is rated 2.2V, a voltage not even supported by the P5B (!). However, booted right into BIOS, could set all I needed, and system runs fine. Just have to put RAM down a bit, since the limit of voltage for the P5B is 2.1V....

Chozart, thanks. That is what I figured since the memory timings and speed are so low it should boot at 1.8 then I could just raise the timings and voltages.

Everything is here!! Now i just have to work for like 5 hours then i can put it together. I wish they would have let me call in to work.

Ok, got everything up and running, but I have a few questions. First what is the proper temp range for the C2D chips? Second w/ two instances of prime running is 50 to hot? Third, should I re-apply as5? I can't believe that these heatsinks are just suposed to stay on there with those little clips, but i guess my pc does run at 42 w/ a zalman 9500. oh yeah, this is with the stock hsf.

50C with dual prime is not bad with stock cooling.

Just try to stay below 60C... that's about the safe limit for long-term operation.

This is all at stock speeds and voltages, earlier I did a run at 3.3 ghz stock voltage and it hit 60 so I shut it down and restarted at 2.4. Does that seem right, I had thought that the overclock didn't have much effect on the temp as long as you weren't increasing voltage? I guess they just don't give you much room to work with on these stock hsfs.

Overclocking will increase temps, even when you don't overvolt. And those Core 2 Duo's seem to do so pretty quickly.

You're fine at 60C though for long term use. Some say even higher than that is ok, but I think it's better to play safe and stay below it. Due to defective hardware (yep, yet another mobo in RMA mode... LOL), I have to resort to stock cooling also (nope, the Tuniq Tower does NOT fit on a P5B Vanilla). I run 3.1GHz now, stock cooling and about 58-59C.

Now it seems that I can't get much of an overclock today, every time i run dual prime one of them fails w/in the first min or so, even at 2.5ghz. Are there any cpu options that need to be disabled when you oc the c2d cpu?
post #70 of 73
Disable spread spectrum, virtualization technology (vanderpool tech I think it is) and a few others... like the power saving technology (forgot the name)
