Is there a pencil mod for the Asus P5N-D?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Benched 3.5ghz for 15 hours in prime95 now i wanna go for 3.6 but i cant get enough voltage because of vdroop.

Its stable about 10 minutes (3rd core faults out in prime95) @ 3.6, just need more voltage.

(edit)
I spent all day lapping my CPU and im finally fnished with it, lapped the q6600 and the Ultra 120.
8c drop in temps ftw. Now all i need is more vcore! Im still sitting on 3.555 stable for 15hours.

(edit)
3.6 stable for 3.5 hours. 3rd core faults out. Is that stable enough? Im wondering if i need vcore or just more efficient cooling. The lap job seemed to help along with the new fans i installed a few days back.

Before that it was about 5-10 seconds stable then a good freeze @ 3.6

I have the same problem on my motherboard I have to run 1.5v vcore with an actual vcore of only 1.44 though to get it stable. I dont like that so Im thinking a pencil mod will work but I have a different board.

I would like to know if there is a mod for it as well. I would like to get my vcore down a bit just to make it cooler.

Thanks for any help
