regarding TAT...if i'm reading it right you idle in the 40's...yet as soon as you start the 100% loading in it the temp reported is in the 70's? (that's if i'm reading the timer it shows in the TAT outputs you posted).
Yea... more like 80-82c full load, It doesn't make sence at all to me, I know that idleing in the 44-46c range is ok given the Vcore, and FSB, but it doesnt make sence that it would jump 40c at full load.... when i get home today, I will remove the HSF, use some alcohol swabs and reapply some AS5 and reseat the CPU/HSF. In the end, If I can't lower the temps, I will just go with a modest O/C of 333x9, and see what I can do about the temps.... Irreguardless, I cannot pass orthos with any O/C.
Can anyone give me a soid setting that has worked for them using the DS3? I.E. MCH/FSB/CPU Voltage settings. I already have all of the unneeded features disabled in bios, and my PCI-E locked at 100
Also, you state I should be able to hit 400 FSB with a full multiplier LOL, yea that would be 3600MHz, that is nearly impossible on an allendale without using Watercooling or Phase. I was just shocked that I made it into windows @ 3.2GHz and was able to do everything, just not Orthos stable
