And when are we going to kick that baby's ass?

Nice, does temps but if you can't get it to 3.0Ghz++ why all the hassle

ha ha true! I have 5 minutes to decide if I want to lug it in to work with me. I work at a pc shop nearby ( best job ever? ) so it wouldn't be too much effort....but it weighs like 40 lbs. and I only work till 1 today. I think what I'll do is seat some processors at work and see what the best way of doing this will be

ok. 3rd reseat today. Even changed up some of the cables hoping to "improve" airflow..its pretty packed in there through. Temps are as good as they were the first time, peaking at 57C. I guess thats as good as I'm going to get.

Maybe once the as5 cures i'll get 2-3C more...

Do you guys think I should wait for the as5 to cure before I overclock it? I can't see why the extra heat would hurt..

I'm keeping a pretty good table of all my temps, I'll let you guys know if as5 really does drop in temps after "cures"

I overclocked mine about 20 minutes after applying AS5 and installing my cooler, though have been sure to shut it down at night every night since to let the curing happen. Can't say if this was wise or not, but you're talking to the guy who built a homemade southbridge cooler out of a hack-sawed heatsink, a 30mm fan and a few woodscrews. To the tune of shaving 23c off the southbridge temp I might add.

My temperatures goal before starting was to not ever have things get past 65c (and the lower the better of course) so I think you'd be ok at 57c under load.

As it happens, I rarely run oc'd anyway as since I've found the "OC Profiles" section in my BIOS I've just saved my 3.3ghz overclock into slot 1. When I want to play a game, do some video editing or anything with 3dsmax I reboot into 3.3ghz. When I'm done and the system is just idling (or when the kids are on it), I reboot to the default stock settings of 2.4ghz. Again, unsure how wise this is but it strikes me that for most of the time the system will sit at stock settings, and only get pushed via the overclock when I actually need it. The rebooting is mildly annoying, but it's quick enough that it doesn't bother me much.

I may get to the point of leaving it at 3.3 all the time, or possibly look into the BIOS cpu throttling to have it automatically step things back on it's own when idling but for now I'm doing it this way.

2gb OCZ DDR2 PC2-9200 (1150mhz) Reaper HPC Edition, which I can't get running at anything over 857mhz in the BIOS for some reason.

ha ha no nothing like that. Played with some settings last night, and found some interesting things.

trying to remember these numbers off the top of my head..I think it was
vcore 1.31
mem 1.9
nb 1.3
sb 1.5 stock
vtt 1.30

this is only a little above stock vcore. The machine won't even post from FSB 1066-1200, posts at 1333, then there's another hole from like 1400-1500...posted fine at FSB 1600 (kicked the multiplier down by 2X just in case..)

Very odd though - when I did get the machine to post, it still didn't boot to windows - I got a bunch of odd stuff on the screen I haven't seen before, looked like some kind of exception was processed.

Anyone seen this screen before? Its immediately after post, I'm actually thinking it might be having trouble initializing the raid array because the NV raid bios never came up like it usually does...

And what if you put you rvcore way higher. Something like 1.5v or so?
