So, my first dive into overclocking and look!! - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Thread Starter 
CAB2E FPMW.

I just need better cooling. It's like a $8 HSF that came with a free wireless kb/mouse. I'm just too lazy to lap the IHS on this Opty. My Venice was really nicely lapped and idled below ambients.... It just can't wick the heat away fast enough. I don't know about CoreTemp though. It was like 60F in my friend's house and it idles at the same temp as in my house when it was like 85F. No makey any sense with me.

3ghz and 2.97 are both slightly unstable. 2.97 was 8M Super Pi stable. Oh well, I don't think I'm gonna buy a $50 HSF for another 200mhz. I'll prolly just get an AM2 setup. This was just to learn to OC better on until I got a job.

Although I must say, this website is such a crutch... I've done nothing but read and attempt to help since I joined, and I didn't have one hitch or problem during OC'ing...

Rosewill RCX for those wondering. Link to my model in a sec.
