If that makes sence...lol
Ok i get it. But dont worry its normal. I doubt you have noticed anything with the actual functioning of the computer but i something does start acting up then you can be worried. But it wont.

Eh, I got one, haven't gotten around to OCing anything yet due to the lack of an OS and monitor.

I was actually wondering about this too. But the reason it happens to me so often is because I turn off the whole power strip under my desk each night. So when I wake up in the morning and turn my PC on, it has that weird turn on, turn off, turn on thing going on. Not a huge problem though. Just slows down boot time by a few seconds.

Hi All,

I'm new to overclocking (I.E. this is my first attempt) and have very much appreciated all the information you have accumulated on this site. It was very helpful. I am however running into a slight problem and wanted to pick the brain of the community here. My setup is a Q6600 G0 that I'm trying to overclock to 3.4 Ghz using an Arctic Freezer 7 Pro. I am (of course) using this motherboard and some Kingston HyperX rated to perform at 1066 Mhz (2.2 V) I was able to get the machine somewhat stable and running for over 30 minutes of Prime95 with no errors, but ultimately an error did indeed occur. My first concern was what is the most likely cause of this (round off error)? My settings were as follows:

FSB: 380
Multiplier: 9
Memory Multiplier: 3.2 (1200 Mhz)
Timings: 6-6-6-18-2T
Ratio: 5:8 (FSB to DRAM)
VCore: 1.44375

I realize the ratio might be unconventional, but I was planning on testing the acutal advantages/disadvantages of the different speeds. Regardless, the thing that had me the most concerned is that two of my cores were approaching 68 C which I understand is generally considered the top of the saftey range under load. What is odd is that my other two cores were sitting at 61 C. Is this most likely due to the lack of quality of the included thermal paste attached to the Freezer 7 Pro or do I perhaps need to sand the bottom of the copper heat sink for 4+ hours as I read someone here doing? If it is the thermal paste, I have some old Silver 5 laying around somewhere, but being that its several years old (and partially used) can I expect it to be any good? If anyone has suggestings for me on how to lower my temps and stabilize this OC, I'd be very appreciative. As I said, I tried to read all the guides etc., but alot of this stuff is still new to me and I probably have missed something

I tried it just a little while ago. So far it has slightly worked. I think that I might need a some more graphite on there or maybe a different pencil.

To be stable at 390x9 on my quad I need to set vcore to 1.53v in bios. Idle is 1.472v and load was 1.392. With the pencil mod it goes to 1.424v but then drops to 1.408v which is still an improvement but I need to work on it some more.

Is there a way to tell if the northbridge is holding you back when overclocking? I am considering replacing the thermal paste on the northbridge heatsink with some Arctic Silver 5 and see if temps drop. I'll lose my warranty, but the board was only $90.

I don't see why replacing the thermal compound on the nbridge would void your warranty.
