oh, feel alot better now! i felt like a newb only getting 2.7, although im thinking of vmoding it (more vcore is what my cpu needs for a higher oc, i think at least!) and getting a new fan (Hyper 48 is a heatsink with an OEM 92 mm fan, im thinking of getting a Vantec Tornade 92 mm case fan)), now i might not...

i have heard someone on here get a SD 4000 to 2.9 (well, two actually) with Water and DFI's, and i did read someone who had their kids rig running one at 3.1 stable on air, but i can't remember who they were or else i'd PM them asking them how!

are they?). Should my BT touch only the CPU core or can it also touch
all those surrounding transistors/diodes or whatever they are? Do I risk
shorting if the BT touches anything but the core?

2. I have the BT VX - so I will be using the new mounting mechanism provided for
the K8 which doesn't involve screwing to MOBO - but attaches much like
the stock heatsink. Will there be a problem with this? And how should I mount
to the exposed core? Just like I would mount with the IHS in place??
Those little outlaying things are condesers you dont want to touch them with your HSF....Test fit your HSF to the core you may have to sand down the plastic by the cam on the ZFL, the CPU locking arm...Be sure to evenly screw down the HSF, you can chip your core if your not careful, and that could kill it or ruin it for OC..EDIT: You might want to do your final test fit using your AS5 or whatever TIM you are using, take it back off and see if your TIM is nice and evenly spread...

Touching those condensors worry me the most. Not to mention chipping the core. Sigh.

I have the new BT VX which now has an adaptable mount for the K8, so I'm not going to be screwing down the BT, just clamping it on. I'm using AS5, which of course, I have to make absolutely sure doesn't leak onto the condensors. (Doesn't leak period.)

Is it all worth it for the extra 5 degrees (I'm wondering)? Especially given I have a 4000+ San Diego (prized yes) but which doesn't overclock a huge amount anyway?

That's just something you have to decide for your self. To me it is..You could get a Venice core for $70.00 to a $100.00 bucks and try it on one of them first.After you do one it's a whole lot easier to do after that, you just have to get a feel for the adhesive that's holding on the IHS...If you do it just take your time doing it. That's when I always mess up, by trying to rush..Watch Crash's video several times and do it like he shows, it doesn't matter if it takes you longer, just take your time...

ffs - i feel like a noobagain - i need better fans, better memory and waaaay more vCore to gt in the 3 GHz club!

I've decided I'm going to go for it guys. I'm goin' to go slow and careful. I got all my tools including Arcticclean, my original padding for the pins on my 4000+, a new razor - and have taken lotsa notes of Crash's video.

I'll let you know the results - the worst can happen is I need to get another CPU, but that ain't the end of the world ... just more money I'm going to have to work another month for. I can live with that.
