DUDE! Quit yelling!
Has anybody here tried this on a Dell XPS-410? I just tried using the aluminum tape and I had no luck at all, it wouldn't even boot, I suspect the conductive property's of the sticky stuff is very low, i had all sorts of crazy errors going on! First one I tried was the electrical tape, all I got was a loud buzz and some error code, tried that one in both the fist pin up from the notch and the second pin, first one gave me the error and second one booted but didn't do anything to it....After that i tried the aluminum tape....nothing though one time the fans went nuts, I didn't know they could spin that fast!
Here is my cpu specs..

Ok my question is....Would I get the results I'm looking for (3.0Ghz+) if i tried the conductive paint? And which way would you guys suggest I go about it since there seems to be many versions of this mod.
I used setfsb and I managed to hit a tiny bit more then 3.0Ghz then hard crashed, I suspect this cpu want's more power....if anybody is wondering this is the one that worked for me SLG505YC56DT.
Edit: I have no idea what happened or it its permanent, but the overclocking Gods must have blessed this computer, I am at just a hair over 3.0ghz something happened with setfsb, it crashed and it woke up running at 3.0ghz, temps are just fine, everything is running smoother then ever except for ram which has an unrelated issue (not enough) it doesn't like to remain stable when the ram gets used up, I might try the volt mod and upgrade the ram to keep it stable, I'm surprised actually that its as stable as it is with as low volts its got. i ran prime95, gamed a lil and watched a1080p movie with surround sound going, I also did normal tasks like accounting, browsing the net no cares given to how many tabs I have open other then watching ram....pretty much everything i could to stress every little thing I could....I'm not going to push my luck any farther with this one.
whoever is watching over this build I thank you!
3.2Ghz!!! WhoooooootEdited by interceptor999 - 12/6/12 at 3:57am
