Just ordered 2 spirit coolers for SB and NB and will be fitting them soon, current temps are 57 and 61 respectively so thought it might be time for some cooling!
You need to pay attention to the Northbridge voltage as more juice is required by the MCH once you pass a certain point with FSB. I recommend also raiseing 1.2 HT to 1.35v and CPU VTT to 1.55v. The Souhbridge should be ok at 1.55v, but you may also need to increase this as high as 1.6v. Needless to say, don't tstrain the Northbridge or Southbridge voltages until you have aftermarket cooling on the chipsets.

There's a free Rep+
waiting for you if you post a verified CPU-Z hyperlink of your overclock. To do this simply select the About
tab when you run CPU-Z and the rest is self explanitory. CoreTemp is well known for inaccurately reporting clock speeds when you lower the multiplier.Edited by t4ct1c47 - 5/22/08 at 2:15am
