HWINFO64 gives the most accurate readings as far as I know.

What do you recommend for getting system temperatures? I have AMD overdrive and pcmonitor. Both tell very little for system temps.
Generic = universal. Koolance and others make universal nb/sb and mosfet waterblocks that could be adapted for usage. Some require space plates or different thickness of thermal pads depending on spacing between block and component.

This is what I was getting at. BUT, like someone else has said, you shouldn't be needing those unless you have zero airflow on your board.

Miklkit:
I've tried to find some temperature that I can go off of in HWINFO64 and such but the only temperature that every changes (other than the cputemp) is the T1/D1+ temperature which never goes higher than 50C, which is lower than miklkit's board temperature. So I do not think that finding board temps is going to be an option. OCCT is the only test that has ever made my computer crash on this overclock so I'm just going to move on with the other overclocks.
I set my NB up to 2600 while keeping voltage at auto and it worked perfectly and I got a few more fps. There is something very strange going on in my BIOS where the only way to turn up the NB frequency past 2100 is by keeping it at auto and then adjusting the HT link frequency. That changes the NB frequency and then I just go back and set the HT link back to 2100. Weird but the fact is that it's good now. Thanks for the recommendation.

cssorkinman:
I set my RAM to it's exact stock timings and voltage and found that it performed slightly worse than it did when set to auto. At least that is what the MaxxMem test told me. On auto it runs at 9-10-10-26-36 1T and set to exact stock (XMP profile) it would have been 9-9-9-24-41 2T (like you said). I don't know much about RAM so I don't know why it didn't perform as well.

That is to be expected, the 2 T command rate ( less stressful on the ram) should allow you to push they clockspeed on the ram higher and allow to up your FSB to get a higher setting . Just something to try in pursuit of a higher cpu overclock. If you can gain enough in FSB the resulting clock on the cpu and ram should give you better performance. If you are successful in gettin g a higher cpu overclock, then you can go back and try your old ram settings , if its stable with those , then it probably wasn't the issue, if it isn't stable , then you made progress by using the xmp settings smile.gif.

That screenie I provided shows my GD80 during over 20 minutes of pushing 1.5vcore in IBT. You do not want to see anything higher than those temps.

I have an IR temp gun and believe the T1/D1 is the North Bridge. It sounds like you have headroom for more OCs.
