Dude, I was totally thinking that

used mediocre grease on it, to "sabotage" the chip's overclocking performance? Both limit it's performance, I swear they did it on purpose
I haven't been able to get the 1066 pin mod to work on mine though, it just won't work with this board. Apparently there's alot of boards it won't work on.But
after removing the IHS and getting better temps, I could then take the chip higher. Before removal I could get around 3.15ghz, since I couldn't go above stock volts due to rediculous
temps. Now, I can get over 3.3ghz, but I still haven't played with it much. I may be able to go higher. But so far, I've Orthos'd it for over 20hrs at 3.33ghz
. I think the tighter 800 bus strap may keep me from going much higher though, we'll see.
I think also, if I had a mobo that works with the pin mod, I could take it higher more easily. If you get rid of the bad temps, and
make the chip run on the 1066 bus, IMO this chip would clock just as good as all the CD2's do on average.
