abit KN8 SLI + Opty 146 OC help - Page 4

post #31 of 32
That's a pretty sweet overclock. A FREE 642 Mhz. Taht's a pretty decent chip to achieve that speed at 1.45ish vcore. I don't know much about the Artic Cooler heatsink but if he could get better cooling on his cpu 2.8 to 2.9 would not be out of the question. Do you know if he used Artic Silver 5 as a thermal grease? The AS5 can lower load temps by as much as 3-5 degrees. Also he could try lapping his cpu and heatsink to get lower temps. But regardless even if he doesn't want to do anything else, he's still got a FREE 642 mhz!!!

PS

Why doesn't he just join overclock.net?

Na he didnt use AS5 and he won't lap it, he's too lazy. But yeah I agree that is quite a bit of money saved even though there isnt really anything to compare it to since most of the other opterons are dual core. Now all we need to do is overclock his 7800GT but thats an other story.

I told him to join overclock.net don't know if he has yet.
