DUDE!!!! still@!!!

I posted agian on your build thread... did you see my new take on your name? heheh you are an arch-villain heheh...

I am starting to think that my hunch was right... I didn't post about it but I have allways thoguht that the stability issues might have to do with the Mosfet cooling.... you have the stock grills on yours.... and without the connection to the hot NB or the SB then those things are uber over-kill.... and you need that for the Q's... I think I need to do my PSU instal and run those cables through the back of my A900 just so I can get a new seating on my NB and switch the thermal tape for the 3M tape I got a long time ago... then test....

My Mosfets are sharing one copper swiftech per pair.... there isn't a whole llot of contact area.... the tape I have on it is a POS I found on the interwebz... and I am not passing more than a few hours of small FFT's or blend... I should memtest first to isolate the problemz... but I have been in uvber-lazy mode for the past 2 weeks

Hey guys...Need some quick help on this mobo! I was overclocking it the other night and got a nice stable OC on it and the next morning when I turned it back on it would not post! I made a thread but no one seems to be helping there, so I'm trying here where everyone has this board

Link to the thread

Thanks in advance

Did anyone else see this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231145

I got a pair just to see how it compares to 4x1 Ballistix.

BTW, I find 1.45 on the NB unstable with my config. The Spirit II is VERY hot to the touch, even on the very top. Recommendations, s'il-vous plait!

try re-seating the spirit. The first time I mounted it the contact was not level.

USlatin, I agree completely on the VRM cooling (pic included)

The swiftech set fits perfectly and comes with good tape

System: On aftermarket air cooling w/Thermaltake Extreme Spirit II on chipsets. E6850 duo currently running at 3600mhz at 400fsb with 9X as multiplier. 1:1 ratio with memory bus. Voltages are Vcore 1.52, 1.2V HT is 1.3, NB Core is 1.4V, SB core is 1.5V with CPU VTT maxed at 1.55. My CPU runs at 25-27C idle and 48-51C load, motherboard temps stay around 41-42C. Basically the CPU temps havnt gone up at all from when it was stock (3000mhz). I do have TEC cooling on CPU (Vigor Gaming Monsoon). Should I push it farther? Thinking 4000mhz is easily obtainable. Should voltages be changed to go higher? Also any reliable voltage reading programs out there? Probe II and Nvidia monitor are all over the place with their readings.
Thanks for any help

Some pics from before i installed the new fans and heatsinks

hummm... I do have those aluminum ones still... but I am not sure Robilar... I mean you would think that with a good thermal conducing material in between you should be ok even if only with 60% surface area contact... Maybe I'll cut the pipes and do as Ratt did... it is too much work to try three different sets of Mosfet cooling sinks and isolate their effect from the necessary testing of NB seatings... huf...

what do you think? I mean would I really loose the ability to sell the board just cause I cut the pipes?

heck most people want to use better cooling anyway... right?






Is anyone here on a Q66 and the black aluminum swiftechs?

me thinks the HR-05 is better than the extreme spirit 2. Lapped too and I get horrible hot temps

My problem with your theory regarding the vrm/mosfets is that the stock sinks only cover a portion of the ones on the left side of the cpu. I don't think that size will compensate for bad board design. I would suggest that Robilar's solution is more efficient than the modified stock.
I bought a set of the HR-09s. They will not fit without modification. At the time, I felt it was more trouble than it was worth, so I didn't even attempt it.
Keep in mind that I have always had 4 120mm low CFM fans pushing ambient directly on the mobo.
Regarding selling your mobo. I think the after market enhancements would be a selling point, as I would include the nb, sb and mosfet coolers with the board.
The problem with the alteration of the stock is RMA.

Yea good point Ratt... I was thinking about selling it with the cooling on it...

hummm.... I really wish the aluminum swiftechs were bigger and copper...

now I think you have better cooling with your setup... but both of you think otherwise... there is no way to know unless you get around to installing the same aluminum swiftechs.... though the HR-09s are king if you can somehow modd them with careful cutting...


aghhh.... maybe I should just switch out PSUs, do the clean wire management modd to the case... re-seat the NB... and then maybe just switch the material on the existing mosfets and see what that does...

what sucks is that I'll have a different NB seating, better mosfet heat conduction paper AND a better PSU all at once.... so I won't really learn anything... but I can't be messign with the work horse too much....

I AM GETTING A NEW DESK THOUGH!!! that should be simple same one as BigVal's

yeah I agree , the mosfet cooling was a big factor for stability in my OC too...

no idea what to use since a lot of things can't fit or are too weak...
