Thanks
91% isopropyl alcohol works great with q-tips. Mine came off great

I don't even have a case fan in this box, and if things run this good I won't be adding one (can do without the dust).

Would I get better performance with the memory @ 1066mhz (5:8), or should I leave it 1:1 @ 800mhz?
The higher the memory frequency you can get with the same timings the better. Run super pi mod to confirm this. My 1M time is nearly .8 seconds quicker with ram at ddr2 876 rather than 800. Good luck

hey guys, i'm kinda a begginer in OC'ing and stuff, and i'm having some trouble here.

I have this mobo, with a q6600 CPU + 2 x 2gb patriot ram
http://www.memoryexpress.com/Product...17889(ME).aspx

So yea, I built this computer 2 weeks ago, For the first 3-4 days, i didn't touch any advanced settings, it was running at a pretty constant 35-40 degree celcius. Then, I did some progressive Overclocking, i got to 3.0ghz with around 45-50 degree which i was happy with. One day, i was running TMNF and some stuff, and i got bsod (i didn't get bsod for 5-6days now, so i don't think it was that big of a problem).

Now the problem is, since then, my OC settings arn't working at all. My bus speed is at 333 in the BIOS, but each time I boot, it goes with default 266.67 bus speed... I tried changing and saving again, each time, it still goes with DEFAULT. It's like skipping my configuration..

Any ideas?

It would of helped more if you had downloaded Prime and showed us your actual load temps. I recommended the Freezer 7 assuming those were going to be your usual temps when you did any gaming.

Oh well, Freezer 7 should do a lot better than the stock HS/F.

I've read around and seen people with the same problem. I think one of the solutions is to reset the CMOS. Just get a screwdriver and just touch the two pins near the CMOS battery next to the south bridge heatsink. If that doesn't work, you can try to remove the CMOS battery itself for about a minute and put it back in.

My 1M time was .7 seconds faster at 5:8 than it was at 1:1.

I ran the 32M for the hell of it, and it ended up being over 1 minute faster at 5:8.

Thanks for the tip. It has been a while since I've done this, and I forgot all about super pi.

Those are my temps during gaming.. i normally only play for about 30mins at a time anyway. Even if it only drops my temps by 10 degrees that should do fine.
