I tried to lower my VCore but Orthos crashes on me when I do that.
okay, on the vCore...you need to manually find what this processor is going to run at...setting to Auto could mean it bumps around to random voltages, lol.

Jump on the intel website to find the stock voltage, start at stock speeds....
go up on FSB...you know. find the lowest voltage it will run at with no errors.

My CPU gets around 38-39C idle (I think) with 1.4vcore (Everest and TAT)... I don't think 41C is too much bigger.

Ohh, I though this was at stock speed. Haha. well it looks pretty good, still think it should at least be in the high 30s. I wish I knew my ambient temps...lol.

Yeah probably isn't a big deal...I have no idea what temps the new chips run at...I was under the impression that the P4's ran much hotter than the new stuff, but i guess not, lol.

It might just be my chip. It seems really sensitive to any sort of voltage changes. Even increases in RAM voltage seem to jump the CPU temp up. lol

Ambient room temp is 23 C. I'm content with this temperature of 41 C knowing that I have to still re-install my side fan and allow time for the AS5 to cure. I'm pretty sure now that after setting that f-ing Tuniq Tower 5 times in the last 2 days that I'm doing it right... practice makes perfect, you know?

Yup, I had to reseat that thing many times as well my first time.

I'm glad that you finally reached temps you are satisfied with!

I already responded to you on the eVGA forums, but thought I'd do the same here.

I was concerned with the temps you were getting, since we seem to have virtually the same setup, including the unusual orientation of the Tuniq.

I'm pretty inexperienced with seating heatsinks, but with an ambient of around 24C:

At 2.4Ghz, 1.35Vcore. Idle: 28C, Load: 33C

At 3.1Ghz, 1.45Vcore. Idle: 34C, Load: 50C

(all case fans and tuniq fans on medium. Heatsink and CPU Un-lapped)

I'm also a little concerned that you couldn't boot at stock voltage (1.35v) at stock clock speeds.

But at least you got your temps within a decent range

I can boot at stock voltage with stock speeds - what gave me issues was running Orthos at stock voltage with overclocked speeds, which makes sense. I think what might be the problem is that the first time I lapped the Tuniq I used the water and dishwashing liquid method and may have gotten some of the soap in the fins (tried to clean it, but that's pretty hard - can you disassemble it?). I imagine that would hinder the Tuniq's heat dissipation properties pretty severely. Hell, they're only $50, I might go buy another one just to see. I should be getting about 7-10 C lower temps at any rate it seems.

If I may offer an opinion, perhaps you shouldn't be so fixated on the idle temperatures so much. What matters most is the temperature at full load. You cited a full-load temperature of 47 degs C; that's quite good, actually, especially given your VCore.

In fact, to introduce a thought that's a little bit more radical: Maybe the key thing is not to fixate on temperatures at all. If your system is running reliably and super-stable, then that's all that matters, in my opinion. These CPUs are far more hardy and tough than conventional wisdom may suggest. So, if it's running just great, and it's doing everything you want it to do, then I'd say don't worry, be happy.

Just an opinion...
