I agree with MacLeod. As long as you don't buy some $3 off-brand paste you should be fine. I haven't heard any complaints about the paste that comes with the Evo. I just had some AS5 laying around from when I used to have an xbox 360

I am definitely jealous of your low voltage your using to get your OC. i have mine at 4.2Ghz but I'm pushing 1.5V to it. I also have my NB set to 3000 @ 1.25V.

As far as the AMD Intel business goes, I've been a hardcore AMD fanboy for many years, but I'm ordering my sandybridge this week:sad-smile. Sad I know. I have been AMD in the past because of there price to gaming performance ratio but it seems intel has joined the bargain bin. But I'm still keepin my old 1090T around.

Yea, as I recall, a friend, one of my friend who was OCing his cpu before me said, when I bought my 1090t (~1 years ago) that it was all about luck if your cpu overclocks better or not... Knowing my chip was good, would've overclocked sooner wink.gif

Oh, Sandy Bridge is excellent, no shame by getting one. In fact, if I was to buy a cpu now, the i5-2500k would be my choice. Can be fanboy, but no need to ignore common sense, not useful for my wallet at least. Me I'm just too lazy to switch my motherboard thumb.gif

err..You'd get a lot more performance by OCing your cpu/nb..
Looks like you need better cooling,..err..Click my sig..Umm..if that's too hevy-dooty..look at the Sunbeamtech core-contact freezer or this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835214023

You're kind of @ your thermal limit..chip may do more..
Oh...Here's a good guide:

All this talk of cranking on the 1090 has got me wanting to work on mine so Im trying to get 4.1 stable. Not having much luck. I can get it to pass the Windows Experience thing but cant get it to pass Prime95 for more than a few minutes.

What voltage are you pushing to it? and are you using manual voltage or offset?

I just bumped it up to 1.47 and am going to see what that does. I have the offset off and am using manual voltage control. I have LLC set to extreme as well.

I tried raising the FSB to 205 to get my 4.1 just in the hopes that it might help in stability a little.

I have to offset my voltage up to1.488V to get it stable at 4.1Ghz. I kept everything else default except for the multiplier and the CPU-NB Voltage. I have another profile I use particularly for intensive gaming where I over clock the NB and a few other things and the the CPU up to 4.2 but i have to push the voltage above 1.5. It tends to get pretty warm then even on an Antec 920.

Well no joy. Im almost 100% sure I could get mine stable at 4.1 but Im gonna need a lot more cooling muscle. Took the Vcore up to 1.49 and it ran Prime95 just fine but shot up to 62C before I finally shut it down. Guess Im gonna have to look into water cooling or something. Could upgrade to a better air cooler but not really sure one would be that much better than my Hyper.

Thats the position i was in when I broke down and bought my closed loop cooler. Definitely a great investment.

Would like to help, but I dont think I can
Good luck with the 4.1ghz, hope you can get it stable thumb.gif
For a better cooling, the only choice would be a water one id say =/ (or those extra powerful scythe fans... dont think the noise worth it tough)

Just passed an other 6h on Prime95 with nb 3ghz, this chip is awesome.
I think ill stay with that for a while... Just need to find a good fan for the Hyper212.
