Yeah I am running vista 64.

Well when it is stock speed it idles at like 44C and no I didn't touch the volts I only upped the multiplier.

Do you guys think that reseating my heatsink will help?

How much of a difference will AS5 make over the thermal paste that came on the heat sink? I have always removed it on previous builds and put AS5 but this time I didn't.

How do you guys apply thermal paste? I have always just put enough on there to cover the surface and then spread it out with a credit card. are there better methods?

Also I don't think the OC actually upped the temps because I am back at stock for now and it still idles around 44C to 45C.

I would just put a small dot near the center of the HS and I've heard AS5 can drop temps as much as 5C

5 years old thermal paste: idle 56c

fresh AS5: idle 40-46

That's a BIG temp difference

The AS5 I have is at least 5YO. Or are you just talking about if it was actually being used for 5 years?

Actually and X method looks to be the best http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=4

I know I don't have a DFI board or 9850 BE yet, but I've been trying out some overclocking on PC at work and maybe some of the stuff I have mught be useful?

For what its worth; I've spent hundreds of hours researching this new architecture to see how best to overclock it. One thing I did find is this and it's a pretty interesting read:

http://www.ocia.net/articles/k10overclock/page1.shtml

When the B3 stepping was released I bought a couple of new machines for the office based on the Phenom 9550 on Gigabyte mobos. Eitherway, I decided to have a go at overclocking this piece of kit and it was an interesting, if not, extremely rocky ride.

If anyone is remotely interested I'll do war and peace in another post, but for now I can say I gave up trying to do the overclocking through the BIOS and instead used AMD's Overdrive tool. Why? Well, reading through tons of articles it became clear that producing 4 cores on the same die that would all run at the same speed was incredibly difficult and just about close to a miracle. I then found a guy that used Overdrive and overclocked all four cores at their individual maximum speeds.

The result I got was great for a 9550 @ 2.2GHz stock:

http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=373899

(Cores 0, 2 and 3 are running at 2.8GHz while core 1 - the weakest link - is only running at 2.55GHz) HT Link is running about stock for this chip at 1.79GHz and the CPU freq: 253MHz which has helped to get the PC6400 800MHz DDR2 to 1021MHz. To help get it rock solid stable I had to reduce the HT Link multiplier (x7) to keep it from going too far over stock and certainly not faster than the North Bridge freq.

Because all four cores are not running at the same speed I believe this is why CPU-Z wouldn't validate the results and I've heard they're not working on the tri-core AMD CPUs either, but who cares.... I've got the screen shots from Overdrive with all the settings available and I'm happy.

I've really enjoyed reading your posts.... it will help me when I finally upgrade around august (when the new south bridge should be coming out)
