If this was at load, you have lots of room to play with.
That's was at idle, about 20 minutes after a few hours in multiplayer Crysis.

P95 after 20 minutes will show similar temperatures in the GPU's etc but the NB will rise to about 45 and the CPU to no more than 62-64.

I forgot to give you my BIOS version. I'm using 1205 now, shall I downgrade then or 1205 is OK too?

It's obviously not 4.08v, I know that. I was just thinking that the NB overheating causes this false reading, because when it happens the affected sensors disappear in BIOS till I reset CMOS... After that everything becomes normal till I try overclocking, hence getting more heat on NB. So?

1203 is best BIOS unless you have a Razor device.

I "downgraded" to 1203, and I suggest you do the same, unless you're happy with not being able to get past 2.8Ghz on a Q6600. When it comes to flashing with EZflash, you should be able to unzip the ROM file to your desktop so that EZflash can see it. To use EZflash, simply go into your motherboard's BIOS and look under the "Tools" option.

Like I said, Asus Probe can be sporadic in its readings. If you want more accurate temperatures use something like SpeedFan, or better yet, the free version of Lavalys Everest.

OK, I see your point, but I think it's not just Probe's fault. The voltage sensors which were read 4.08v by Probe had DISAPPEARD from BIOS. So there was no such line as Vcore or memory, etc. Of course I managed to get them back by clearing the CMOS. Weird, huh?

OK, I did (up?)date the BIOS to 1203. No problem with that, but I can't use the arrow keys in the setup, just the numpad arrows... Strange, but who cares.

So, I decided to get two Thermalright MOSFET passive heatsinks, and the two Thermaltake Extreme Spirit II on both the NB and the SB. What do you think?

I dropped the idea of Thermalright heatsink for the NB, because the fan wouldn't fit. And ThermalTake's active cooler must be more effective than the ThermalRight without a fan, right?

What cpu cooler do you have? I was told the Thermaltake will fit with my Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme, which is quite big. Or won't it? Please somebody confirm, I won't order one otherwise! :S

Regarding the memory: have you set the correct timings?

i have the Thermaltake V1 CL-P0401 110mm and for what i see inside i dont think the thermaltake for the nb and sb will fit in there.

About the memory yes i set the right timings. what windows experience score do you get in your memory? i think we have the same memory

Yes, we have the same memory, but I'm running it @ 800Mhz, because my Northdrige gets hot as hell. (No ventillation from CPU against the mobo, small house)
With 800mhz, and loose timings I get 5,4. So your's not so bad.
