Dude, we've been loving you since, um, the days of the old other club house that got a new landlord, man.

Failed jokes? Nah. Just a tough crowd.

Pioneer, now I know how you feel about thet nForce3 DFI board. I couldn't get it to POST at 320HTT and for some odd reason the board won't POST unless you have a optical drive plugged in. Other then that it's a solid board. The Winchester 3000+ I was playing with was a very poor OCer. I had to run 1.5volts just for 2520mhz and even at that it wasn't 5 seconds stable in Orthos. Oh wellz...the fun of overclocking

I will be looking to join as soon as Gigabyte returns my MoBo. When last I had her, my computer (X2 4400+, LCBIE stepping) was running at 2750 MHz with the RAM running at 197 MHz. I found the source of my instability was that I was running the HT at 1000 MHz when the motherboard only supports 800 MHz. My goal is to get it to run as fast as possible with stock voltage. Once I get my Motherboard returned, I will run an Orthos and then validate it.

Questions: Why would you want to take off the chip's heat spreader? Also, what does it mean when you say "Lap the HSF"?

Blitz, if you don't mind me asking, what happened to your GA board(I guess I could read your thread lol)? I have two of those same exact boards (SC-939) and I love them. Solid performers!

By the way, we'll add you to the roster as soon as you post up your CPU-Z validation screanshots

The BIOS was out of date. In the process of flashing it with @BIOS (Windows software) it failed. I restored and told it was successful. Upon reboot, I no longer have a BIOS installed.

I am actually looking to finagle an Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe nForce4 and a pair of MSI NX8800GTS 320M OC GeForce 8800GTS 320MB out of my parents. (Approx $550 new) I would say that I am tired of the disappointing performance of AGP. My LAPTOP can outperform my desktop, and that is just sad.

EDIT: I have a screen shot of my overclock before I doubled down on the RAM. It was a very modest overclock and what I pulled off before asking for any advice:

*

EDIT-AGAIN: Which works better? SpeedFan or CoreTemp? I am noticing a difference of 16º C between the two of them on my laptop.

EDIT-THE-THIRD: To any reading this in the archives: the CPU at the time was clocked to 2400 MHz. I updated the picture on the server and it changed to as you see it above.

Blitz, the only thing with the A8N-SLI Deluxe is that it's 8x 8x SLI and not the 16x 16x like the A8N32-SLI, but the performance increase will destroy your AGP setup. I'd go with a single 8800GT. The power requirements and heat dissipation in my opinion is not worth it.

Good luck

While true, the A8N32 isn't in stock with the store I am looking at. I really want SLI, I would think that a pair of 8x, 8800 GTSs should outperform a sole 8800 GT no?

Blitz, yes it does but I was referring to the power requirements and temperature increases with two video cards. You may have to end up purchasing a new PSU.

Other then that it's a solid board. The Winchester 3000+ I was playing with was a very poor OCer. I had to run 1.5volts just for 2520mhz and even at that it wasn't 5 seconds stable in Orthos. Oh wellz...the fun of overclocking
Wait a second, so you're actually having good luck with that board? That's good news. I'm glad it went to a home that can appreciate it for what its worth...as I couldn't get it to do anything, lol. Then again...I'm not accustomed to DFI BIOS's. I'm very glad that you've got that board doing well. I was worried that you'd attempt an overclock, have bad luck like I did, then hate me for it, lol. Although I did tell you ahead of time that I couldn't get it to do anything, lol.

The no POSTING without an optical drive....now that's odd. I always had an optical drive connected, but still. And you could actually get it to run 1.5v??? Jeeezz!!! I couldn't pass 1.35v with that board? Guess you've pwned me, lol.

I personally think that removing the IHS, when done correctly (see my sig), can boost an OC by 100-250mhyz by realizing a nice reduction on temps (for both of 939 chips I saw a ~5*C at idle and ~9*C at load reduction), thus allowing safer vCore increases (especially on air cooling).

It is a fairly modest procedure, that mostly requires patience and a nice set of cajones

As for "lapping" your Heat Sink, it refers to the procedure of using varying grades of abrassive (usually sandpaper - starting coarse and running through ultra-fine) to reduce surface irregularites on the finish of your heat sink. You ideally are trying to increase the effective surface area contact between the heat sink and your IHS or naked chip.

If you are interested, here is a guide I made some time back

also check out here for a great kit to get your started... Dave aka insulglass is great to deal with!
