The Socket 939 Appreciation Club and Knowledgebase [Official] - Page 2158

post #21571 of 28730
I tried to get overclocked by post 5800 but you know how it is w/all the newbs that don't even know what rep is for.

I'm finished w/my stress test in P95 w/well over 12hrs stable.



Edit: @ Tator, yeah CPU-Z failz. I too has a 3500MHz socketed 939 on a AM3 chip LOL.

@BlackOmega, Shin Etsu X23 is a very thin paste, which is why it's designed for lapped surfaces.

G751 is thicker (like MX-2/Freeze/AS5) and thus designed to fill in buldges and dips.

I'll have to try out that X23 when I get a chance most likely when I get my new 965 C3, which of course will receive the lapping treatment.


@ thlnk3r, what are your impressions of the H50 thus far? I have heard lots of very good things about it and am contemplating getting it, if it really does cool as well as is claimed.

PS: Woot just noticed that my account is overclocked now.

Don't worry N2, you're only 2 REP away from overclocked, or is it 1?

BO, so far I am happy with the purchase. Installation was a breeze. Idle @ 22C Load @ 44C (3.3Ghz 1.4volts). This is a 620 btw. Room ambients were 23C. I did not lap my 620...yet. I'm kind of curious how my other 620 clocks. I'm happy with the NB Frequency and memory timings...just not the cpu clocks on this one.

Oh you kidder you. I think for the most part like 98 percent of my reps were earned the OCN way while others were given in a manner that I don't condone but never the less I can't give em back so I guess I'll take em. Yap I'm only one away now. Wohooooooooooooooo.

Edit: I now has OC'd OCN account. Yeaya...

Your finger? Shouldn't that be like the last thing you want to use? The dirt and oils from your skin are definately not a good idea between a processor and heat sink.

Also, I found the drop and squish technique to be inconsistant. Also, it rarely covers 100% of the cpu surface.

I use a piece of plastic to smear it all over the cpu in a thin layer. Works great, both cpus are even in temps.

EDIT: I would also like to ask if we could keep this forum related to socket 939. I dont mind the occasional talk about other cpus. but posting screenshots, talking about settings that are not related?

A 939 club! I have only just upgraded from my 939 setup. A DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI-DR Expert with an Opteron 165 Dual core clocked from 1.8-2.8Ghz. Unfortunately I had a wee spill of water on the mobo that I didn't pick up on which dried on a patch of voltage regulators and resulted in the RAM being undervolted, then overvolted and then finally fried.

939 is a damn good and solid platform though. My last setup was incredibly stable and could run almost any game on high with a good fps.

My last system was a 754 3200+ venice(2.2Ghz) core with a DFI lanparty UT nf3 250GB that I overclocked to 3ghz(Insane for a 754) I scored like a 4k on vantage with a 2600xt. Old systems used to be so fun to overclock.

Sorry about being rather vague, when I used my finger it was wrapped in plastic. TIM can be a pain in the arse to get off of your skin.

And the drop in the center I have found to be very consistent. Here's the key to applying it:
  • 1.) Apply drop of your preference in the center of the die.
  • 2.) Put cooler on the CPU.
  • 3.) Press down (fairly hard) on the cooler itself.
  • 4.) Turn the cooler slightly back and forth (I mean VERY slightly no more than ~30* if that much).
  • 5.) Attach retention mechanism.

Every CPU that I've used that method on (with the exception of HDT coolers), the TIM covers the IHS almost perfectly. The key is to press down on it before you retain it.
When I was testing ICD7 for IC (there's a thread on here somewhere), a lot of people had issues with it spreading properly. ICD7 is a VERY thick paste that doesn't spread easily, you absolutely MUST push down on it to get it to spread. If you don't temps WILL suck.

That's the exact reason why I haven't ventured in to the watercooling territory. However, with the H50 coming out and seeing all of the good results, I might just have to give it a shot. Although, I don't think it would help the noise level of my rig since these dang GPUs' are so freakin loud. They sound like freakin dustbusters. :swearing:

But yeah the DFI 939 boards are AWESOME! I still have 2, and what a pleasure it is to overclock on them.

Very nice. You should go back a page or 2, redhat just made some sort of separate voltage regulator for his DFI NF3 board. He says that it can take the RAM voltage to 4v.

The only reason it leaked was because I had the board down horizontally on my desk as I was going to paint the case. The clamps were tight enough to stop the water from leaking when the board was vertical but not when it was horizontal It was unfortunate and something that really doesn't happen that often at all. It's very rare to ever have a water leak on the motherboard when everything is in the case. GPU maybe but it's easy to see and you can clean it off quick so that it doesn't do any damage.
